It is the music of the soul.
Take time to think.
It is the source of power.
Take time to play.

It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray.
It is the greatest power on Earth.
Take time to love and be loved.

Take time to be friendly.
It is the road to happiness.
Take time to give.

Take time to work.
It is the price of success.

Hearts full of truth,
Six parts gin to one part vermouth.
