Default Secret of Survival

From nature comes a secret of survival.

While some will falter and fall from a perfect perch,

others will rebuild each nest destroyed.

While some give up without reason,

others achieve greatness in the face of doom.

Some will go on soaring though left alone,

gaining strength from the struggles of their flight.

Survivors seem to sense the sun behind the clouds,

weathering a storm just to glimpse a rainbow.

On the wings of life there are gentle currents and rough winds.

Survivors float and fight as each day dictates,

their hearts set determinedly on the horizon of hope.

The light they follow is their will to live,

The reward they receive is life itself.

Default The Trout

When a trout rising to a fly gets hooked on a line and finds

himself unable to swim about freely, he begins with a fight

which results in struggles and splashes and sometimes an escape.

Often, of course, the situation is too tough for him.


In the same way the human being struggles with his environment

and with the hooks that catch him. Sometimes he masters his

difficulties; sometimes they are too much for him. His struggles

are all that the world sees and it naturally misunderstands them.

It is hard for a free fish to understand what is happening to a

hooked one.

-----Karl A. Menninger
