Pete Seeger adapted words from Ecclesiastes to create the magnificent "Turn, Turn, Turn" - and I have added my own thoughts - something pretty close to a credo, I guess, for me.
From everything, learn, learn learn!
In every season, learn, learn learn!
There's a truth to every moment under heaven
A lesson from joy, a lesson from pain
Learning from loss and from gain
Learning to look around
A simple truth lies waiting in the shadows
chorus - Learn!
When the cause seems lost and the music has died
When friends are few and worries great
The one hope that carries on
Is that bright flame, the urge to create
Like a strong willow, we learn how to bend
Learn to let go or try again
When to accept and when to fight
Love learns from hate
And day from night
