Never stop trying, and don’t give into sorrow.
Never stop feeling amazed at the beauty that surrounds you.
Never stop hearing the music, and don’t give into the blues.

The paradoxical commandments

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Lessons

There’s beauty in struggle,
There’s feeling in pain.
For every painstaking mistake,
There are lessons you can name.

Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.
