"It Isn't Costly" - An Inspirational Poem for Saturday, April 27th

It Isn't Costly
By Edgar Guest

Does the grouch get richer quicker than the friendly sort of man?
Can the grumbler labor better than the cheerful fellow can?
Is the mean and churlish neighbor any cleverer than the one
Who shouts a glad "good morning," and then smiling passes on?

Just stop and think about it. Have you ever known or seen
A mean man who succeeded, just because he was so mean?
When you find a grouch with honors and with money in his pouch,
You can bet he didn't win them just because he was a grouch.

Oh, you'll not be any poorer if you smile along your way,
And your lot will not be harder for the kindly things you say.
Don't imagine you are wasting time for others that you spend:
You can rise to wealth and glory and still pause to be a friend.

Good post. I learn something totally new
and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
It's always helpful to read through articles from
other writers and practice something from their websites.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three
emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Thank you!
