Some Consoles. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

See the glass half full
Rather than half empty.
Have courage to change
The things you can.
Have courage to bear
The things you cannot change.
Fight or flight, choose to stay.

    Wise words. Reminds me of a little prayer
    'God grant me the serenity
    to except the things i can not change,
    courage to change the things i can
    and the wisdom to know the difference'
