                It's not my place
                    To run the train
                The whistle I can't blow
                    It's not my place
                To say how far
                    The train's allowed to go

                It's not my place
                    To shoot off steam
                Nor even clang the bell
                    But let the train once
                Jump the track....
                    Then see who catches hell.

                         an especially appropriate moment.)

      how to use my telephone.

A positive attitude will not solve

                 enough people to make it worth the effort.

There was a young poet named Dan,
     Whose poetry never would scan.
           When told this was so,
           He said, "Yes, I know.
     It's because I try to put every possible syllable into  that last line that I can."

When we recall the past, we usually find that

             that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.
