Follow Through

When you get right down
to the root of the meaning
of the word succeed,
you find it simply means
to follow through.

Life is too short to waste
In critic peep
or cynic bark,
Quarrel or reprimand:

Twill soon be dark;
Up! Mind thine own aim,
and God speed the mark!

Everything should be made as simple as possible,
but not simpler.

It often happens
that I wake at night
and begin to think about
a serious problem
and decide I must tell
the Pope about it.

Then I wake up
completely and remember
that I am the Pope.

Pope John XXIII
