    ABOUT LIFE


    Life is a pleasure,
    Greet it with a smile,
    Friendship is a treasure,
    Keep it all the while.

    Our business in life is not to
    Get ahead of others, but to get
    Ahead of ourselves- to break
    Our own records, to outstrip
    Our yesterday by our today.

    Life is a pack of cards-
    When you’re in love, it’s’ hearts’
    W en you’re engaged, it’s ‘diamonds’
    When you’re married, it’s ‘clubs’
    When you’re dead, it’s spades

    Learn to make the best of life,
    Lose no happy days,
    Time will never give thee back ,
    Chances swept away,
    Leave no tender word unsaid,
    Love while life shall last,
    The mill will never grind again,
    With waters of the past.

    May your life be arithmetic,
    Your joys added,
    Your sorrows subtracted,
    Your pleasure multiplied,
    And your worries divided.

    May your life have a purity of water,
    And flow of a calm stream.

    Always remember to do these three things in life,
    Drink, lie and steal.
    Drink from the fountain of knowledge,
    Lie on the bed of success,
    And steal away from bad company.

    I've collected various poems about life and I want to share them with you. I'm grateful to those who had created these verses. I had only compiled them and there are few more to be shared.

    A nice effort Pushpavalli. It is worth marking this because it has great verses to quote.

    Thank you Radha. I too liked these words. Though it seems jovial, the inner meaning these words express is quite true.

    Hi,

    I liked the poem about life. But the lines below, i heard it earlier.

    May your life be arithmetic,
    Your joys added,
    Your sorrows subtracted,
    Your pleasure multiplied,
    And your worries divided.



    Life is a pack of cards ... , those lines i never heard before and it is quite nice also.
    The way it is written, i liked it very much. Keep on writing.
