Take Time for 8 Matters of the Heart

Susan Notes:

This is from Ed Young 1990 acceptance speech for the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award.

Go forth and Take Time. . . .

by Ed Young

Take Time for Repose... it is the germ of creation.

Take Time to Read...it is the foundation of wisdom.

Take Time to Think and Reflect...it is the source of strength.

Take Time to Work...it is the path to patience and success.

Take Time to Play...it is the secret of youth and constancy.

Take Time to Be Cheerful...it is the appreciation of life that brings happiness.

Take Time to Share ...for it is in fellowship and sound relationships that one finds meaning.

Take Time to Rejoice...for joy is the music of the soul.

— Ed Young
