Have a heart and intelligence hold;
Be loving, but also be smart.
Remember your Heavenly Father, be bold.
To win – do your part.

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.

Час дорожчий за гроші,
Коли бережеш, пам’ятай.
Щоб по ціні купити калоші,
Час – коштовний, розум май.
Час – головному,
Зостале – дрібному…

You can be my smart and fun,
And I can be your strong and steady.
We can help each other to run,
To get things faster ready!
Iaroslav Monday 20.02.2017
Love God in trouble and joy!
All your mind, all your strength, and all your heart you will need to employ.
Be afraid of no one
But Him, be ready to wait, be ready to run.
Love God with all your strength,
With all your mind, heart, and body length!
Let your heart not sink:
He will support you more than you think.
Rely on Him and go.
Let your kindness grow!
Be quick and smart;
In studies, in work, strengthen your heart!
Be afraid of no one, not anybody in sum.
Only fear God now and in the time to come –
You will bring abundant fruit,
You will grow a profound root!
Iaroslav Saturday – Sunday 19-20.01.2013
Be slave to God and not to men.
Fear God on all your ways.
Be not afraid of people now or then.
May God prolong your days!
May they be filled with health and joy!
Fear God and not men to achieve your goal:
You have a smart head, employ!
Keep straight your back and sound your soul!
Iaroslav October 2014
Be modest but smart,
It requires whole art.
One little thing for the start:
Smile, be brave with your loving heart!
Iaroslav Sunday 30.05.2010
Open your heart.
That’s exactly what you need.
And let us be smart.
Sharpen your soul’s trusty reed –
Open your heart.
Just let some love inside
And it will live and succeed
Flowering with happiness by side.
It’ll be your shield in court, it’ll plead.
Love does not beg, but gives;
Has noting, but is rich;
A real love never dies, but lives.
Love is the treasure available for each.
Iaroslav Saturday 18.02.2006
When you are too afraid to go,
Try everything – all worthy things to grow.
When you are ready to quit,
Just try your wit.
In all good business keep smart and fair;
Before you make an important decision, remember to say a prayer.
Be simple and clever,
Be grateful ever.
Iaroslav Sunday 20.11.2016
What you have, hold.
You are so rich indeed!
You are smart, you are bold,
Your health is more precious than gold.
So, be wise to save it and maintain.
No one knows what will happen then.
Under the sun or pouring rain,
Be sage to keep what is main.
Believe, these words are true.
You will need much strength –
Till the sky above is blue –
To do kind things, to break through!
Iaroslav Sunday – Monday 11-12.01.2009
If it doesn’t stick, bud,
Use a tape around that part.
If a car has passed and got you in mud,
Take it easy, be kindly smart.
Remember to run –
This is to cover your winning mile.
Remember to enjoy fresh air, bright sun.
Remember to smile =)
Iaroslav Sunday 25.09.2016
Keep up with the time,
Be smart in the things you do.
Be faithful however high you climb.
Let your love, your health, your words be true.
Iaroslav Monday 05.09.2016
How smart you are!
Believe, do not hesitate,
You’ll be like a shining star,
You will enjoy success sooner or late!
With sun light your street will be lit,
He who has doubts is wrong.
Just do not cease doing your bit,
Indeed, you are strong!
Iaroslav Sunday 23.12.2007
Why are you upset?
Every sunrise and every sunset
Have courage, it’s just a slope.
A rise will follow,
Keep on trying, dear fellow.
Keep your chin up and kind your heart.
Keep your head smart!
Iaroslav Friday 08.05.2015
When love comes, it’s so quiet –
No struggle, no riot.
But real love soon becomes loud
Muffing every other sound.
Love is calm, but strong,
Love is never wrong;
It keeps silent, but speaks much,
Love is like a rose petal touch.
Love tells the truth.
It never vanishes, it’s stable and smooth.
Love melts anger and is smart,
Keep open your heart.
Iaroslav Sunday 18.12.2005
I know, you have so little time,
But it’s all about how you use it.
Do you spend a dollar trying to save a dime?
If you are overwhelmed with details, you may lose it.
Keep the bigger picture in sight,
Approach it in a smart way indeed.
Your time budget is tight –
Be wise with time to succeed.
Iaroslav Monday 12.01.2015
A lot of things happen around
And it is not enough to learn what you are told at school.
New things, new technologies abound
And it takes an effort to stay cool.
Have desire to learn new things
To be able to choose what is good,
To be able to distinguish good stuff from unhealthy springs.
Be kind, smart, and learn to move ahead from where you stood.

Shine your way,
Do good things whatever they say!
Have salt in yourself and have light,
Make your chemin* bright!
Rely on God and go!
In terms of helping people are slow.
You are beautiful, strong, and smart.
With God’s help you will achieve all, just do your part!
* French for “way”.
Iaroslav Monday 22.12.2014
Be simple and people will want to be with you.
It’s not bad to look smart and gentle since it is true.
Do not be shy to display your knowledge;
Be simple, but do not forget what you have learned at college.
Iaroslav Sunday 30.11.2014
Якщо у житті не гладко все,
Не хвилюйся, не сердися:
Те, що було, минуле все далі і далі несе,
З надією на це дивися!
Хай серце палає любов’ю,
Хай розум працює кмітливо,
Хай дієта сприяє здоров’ю!
Рухатись далі – дуже важливо.
Iaroslav Sunday 07.09.2014
Live your faith through deeds –
Plant kind things, avoid weeds;
Water the seed of love in your heart;
Love God, love your neighbour, love life and be smart!
Iaroslav Tuesday 19.05.2015
Love God on all your ways
For you don’t know the length of your days.
Do not put it off till tomorrow.
There aren’t too many things to follow:
Love God with all your mind, strength, and heart.
And love your neighbour as yourself, it’s not a complex art.
Your heart will prompt where to start.
Keep your shoulders straight, your head is so smart!
