The author, Sam Levenson wrote it for his grandchild.
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness,
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people,
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry,
For beautiful hair, let a child runs his fingers through it once a day,
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone…
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, retrived, reclaimed and redeemed. Never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, one for helping others.
