Why I Hire a Financial Mgr

“Nothing is worth more than this day.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To My Dog Blanco J.G. Holland
Mv dear, dumb friend, low lying there, A willing vassal at my feet, Glad partner of my home and fare, My shadow in the street, I look into your great brown eyes, Where love and loyal homage shine, And wonder where the difference lies Between your soul and mine! Hath royally informed and crowned Your gentle heart and mind for all of the good that I have found within myself or humankind. I scan the whole broad earth around For that one heart which, leal and true, Bears friendship without end or bound, And find the prize in you. I trust you as I trust the stars; Nor cruel loss, nor scoff of pride, nor beggary, nor dungeon-bars, Can move you from my side. As a patient under injury as any Christian saint of old, As gentle as a lamb with me, But with your brothers bold; More playful than a frolic boy, More watchful than a sentinel, By day and night your constant joy To guard and please me well, I clasp your head upon my breast The while you whine and lick my hand And thus our friendship is confessed, And thus we understand! Ah, Blanco! did I worship God As truly as you worship me, Or follow where my Master trod With your humility, Did I sit fondly at His feet, As you, dear Blanco, sit at mine, And watch Him with love as sweet, My life would grow divine.
Senator Vest and Old Drum
"The one absolutely unselfish friend a man can have in this selfish world is his dog".
