Desiderata, day three

Speak your truth quietly and clearly.

The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.– Francis Maitland Balfour

This is a beautiful photo and a lovely message worth remembering. With my little nephews nearby I am redisovering the delights of small children.
