Treasure Island

Contentment


A perfect life can't be
found in wealth, it can be taken.
not in popularity, soon you
will be forgotten.
not in beauty, its not permanent.
not in intelligence,
it doesn't make us
higher creation of God.
Instead,
A perfect life can be found
in contentment,
with the things we have,
from the love we give and get,
from the people around us,
and from the faith in God
who give us everything.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
