Changes For Life


CHANGES FOR LIFE

First you make your habits,
and then your habits make you.

Break those habits that can break you.
Adopt those practices that will become
the new habits that will help you
achieve the success you desire.

Your habits are a form of exercise.
The harder you work at something,
the harder it is to quit.
The easier it is to do,
the harder it is to change.

Your habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters.

You are what you repeatedly do.

THE RAGGED JACKET

Although I'm but a working man,
I live by honest labor.

I always do the best I can
To assist a needy neighbor.

Content and health are all my wealth,
With honesty to back it,

My motive pure, although I'm poor,
I respect the ragged jacket.

Let people say what ever they may
Of broadcloth and who wore it,

It's not the coat that makes the man,
But the deeds through life that bear it!

So always help a fellowman
If assistance, he should lack it,

Do him all the good you can
Though he wears a ragged jacket!

All men were equally born at first
Of this, and every nation,

The rich among the poor would be
But for health and education,

And when we're laid beneath the sod,
With a hundred years to back it,

Who can tell which were the bones
That wore the Ragged Jacket!
