You Built It. You Can Break It.

A Builder’s Lesson

How shall I a habit break?
As you did that habit make.
As you gathered, you must lose;
As you yielded, now refuse.

Thread by thread the strands we twist,
Till they bind us, neck and wrist.
Thread by thread the patient hand,
Must untwine, ere free we stand.

As we builded, stone by stone,
We must toil, unhelped, alone,
Till the wall is overthrown.

John Boyle O’Reilly 


Enjoy today.
Achieve today.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
