Have you ever thought that your body, indeed,
Is a “donkey” carrying you to the Kingdom of God and your task is to feed
And to take care for it in a proper way:
To prevent a disease, to get enough sleep, to pray…
If you overfeed it, it will go mad;
If you underfeed, it will go bad;
If it gets sick, it will carry no more.
Therefore, be smart and care to reach the Door.

We are lucky to live, to move, to see;
Above all, we are lucky to love and to be loved truly.
Let us be thankful, let us not flee;
Let us stand, be smart and believe fully.

Look straight and ahead,
You will wear a crown.
Work with your head,
No need to frown.
Save precious time:
Misleading is the past.
Sour is a lime:
Think, be smart, react fast.

God gave us intelligence to use –
Make sure, therefore, that you don’t lose
Your head in circumstances that are tough;
Also, no matter how smart you are, laugh.

God loves us much more than we can imagine indeed:
He fights for us, He cares, He feeds, He helps in every need.
Therefore, despair is a big sin;
However hard – be smart, repair, win.

Each person has her/his own day.
Even if everyone around seems so smart,
Pay attention, keep doing the right thing the right way, pray.
Start with faith and humbleness that come from the heart. Use art.
Don’t be envious, do not freak out.
Keep calm, be simple and wise.
Stout or slim, with a workout or without,
Awesomize; remember that steady wins the prize and he who tries.

Надійся на Господа і нехай буде певне серце твоє.
Роби що потрібне, що добре – кмітливо –
Праця, любов, життя, надія доведуть своє;
Мужність май – твоє не забариться диво.

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!
Iaroslav Thursday 21.10.2018
Have a heart and intelligence hold;
Be loving, but also be smart.
Remember your Heavenly Father, be bold.
To win – do your part.
Iaroslav Sunday 08.08.2010
Orthodox people must be smart.
Smart thing #1 – love God in all,
Let this be fully, not in part.
Smart thing #2 – love your neighbour at home and in a mall.
Also be smart in work and studies;
Be smart in eating, drinking, speaking;
Be smart with your lady, friends, buddies;
Be smart in completing good projects through, avoiding freaking.
