I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is: Try to please everybody.
Herbert Bayard Swope

Nature has a mind of her own...
The weeping waterfalls rumble in the distance,
The incandescent sparkles glimmer on the ocean's textured surface,
The winds are a whisper in your ear,
The trees crack and split under the heavy weight of winter,
The fragile flowers peer out of the soil in greeting,
The mountains shudder under the packed snow,
The scorching heat borne over an island bakes the sand,
The sea grasses sway in lovely dance under the warm water,
The raging fires swallow up the charred forests whole,
The clouds, as white as cotton, bravely sweep across the sky,
The rivers flow mightily through the land,
The horizon stretches far beyond the limitations of the mind,
The lava gushes down a rugged volcano,
The stars shine like flawless diamonds in the shadows,
The tall grasses roll and are surfed on by the wind,
The sun points blissful rays at the spinning world,
The rain softly splashed onto the leaves in the wild,
The canyons stand tall and proud against erosive forces,
Has a mind of her own.
