Care for each other

You’re brothers indeed,
So, care for each other.
To have a good crop, you need a good seed,
So, care for each other.

When you can, do,
Help your suffering brother.
He is so tired, it’s true,
Help your suffering brother.

All your deeds are noted down,
No doubt, you will be paid back.
Listen to your kind heart sound,
No doubt you will be paid back!

Listen

Listen to others,
If to be listened you want.
Listen to your sisters and brothers;
Their knowledge will be your reward.

You think that you are smart,
That’s all right,
But listening is the start
Bringing your intellect into sight!

When your hand can give, let it give

CAM00423
When your hand can give, let it give.
When you can save your little brother, let him live.

Our time is short,
Neither tomorrow nor later it can be caught,

Do not say ‘tomorrow’, ‘later’ or ‘soon’.
Life is now, at this moment, slipping away like a balloon.

Live now, be free;
You are a blossoming tree!

Live and do good till you can,
No one will stop you or ban!

Your strength is inside.
Believe! Your kind deeds will abide…

Love your neighbour as you love yourself

Have you ever thought
That loving others
As we love ourselves, which should be a lot,
Is being accepting of your sisters and brothers?

It is being forgiving and patient in all;
Loving God, including in His creation;
Being happy, faithful, hopeful, and tall
Despite shortcomings and an awkward business presentation?

Love God and love your neighbour,
Love yourself in studies, rest, and labour.
Smile often whenever you can.
Melting ice inside and keeping positive is the plan!

Як сумно часом буває

Як сумно часом буває,
Чому успіх чужий комусь заважає?
Чи ми, люди, брати?
Чи не тому ми тут, щоб один одному допомогти?

Та дехто забуває,
Через дрібне головне зневажає.
Люди – різні та є добро,
Назавжди переможе Воно.

Хай жорстокий розуміє,
Любові тепло синів-дочок зігріє.
Лагідні яскраво засяють.
Терпінням й добром вони перемагають.

Sincere smile

dscn9457

Sincere smile, how much it means!
It is like bread and oil, beans
For a hungry soul.
For a fan it is a goal.

Just smile and improve the world around.
The birds are singing, what a sound!
The past is past, we live in the present.
Your smiling face is so pleasant!

Your smile is a cure for others,
It does support your brothers.
Be yourself, it is worthwhile.
How much it means, sincere smile!

The only way to multiply joy

Clark's_Nutcracker_-_Nucifraga_columbiana

The only way to multiply joy
Is to share it with others;
To do a kind deed
And to make happy your sisters and brothers.

How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to be together in unity

How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to be together in unity,
How much strength it adds to the whole community.
Things get done better,
Opportunities are open faster.

When a brother relies on his brother,
They both will go farther;
Their business will succeed
When with mutual love they proceed.
