Loretta Solon Quotes

  • ''Let no man be called happy before his death. Till then, he is not happy, only lucky.''
    Solon (c. 640-558 B.C.), Greek statesman, poet. In answer to the fabulously wealthy Croesus, who asked him who was the happiest man Solon had encountered on his travels—expecting Solon to name Croesus himself. Croesus dismissed Solon, only to remember his words when sentenced to death following his disastrous invasion of Persia (though the sentence was rescinded when the Persian king, Cyrus, heard the tale). The story is related by Herodotus in his Histories, bk. 1, though has no historical basis: Solon died before he could have met Croesus.

Through Mothers Eyes

Well my child, I love you, although my hair is turning gray,
Try to think of yesterday, before time slipped away,
"For time is quickly passing, fading before my eyes
and the mom and dad of my childhood, has lived and has died."
Through mothers eyes I see you, "Someday reflecting me."
Always remember mother, although her hair is turning gray.
"Always remember mother, I'm just a phone call away".
So many things I should have said and done, I regret no
