One of my Mom’s favorite poems

5 Aug

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”

-W. Somerset Maugham

 

If you feign to be what you wish

that others may think that you are

permit not yourself to believe it

remember it’s but a facade.

 

Truly, the worth of a man

is the effort exerted to bridge

the distance between what he is

and that person he wishes he were.

-Anonymous
