Every Horse Should Run Full Speed

Every Horse Should Run Full Speed

Accomplish something with your life;
use all your wits and talents.

As every horse should be able 
to run full speed,
and know all the beauty and wonder
of its strength. 

         Today is my mom's birthday, I wish her the full speed of a beautiful running horse and the ageless wisdom contained with Wordsworth's poem. I love you, Mom!

Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey
William Wordsworth

Oh that best portion of a good man's life, 
His little, nameless, unremembered, acts 
Of kindness and of love. 
Nor less, I trust, To them I may have owed another gift, 
Of aspect more sublime; that blessed mood, 
In which the burthen of the mystery, 
In which the heavy and the weary weight 
Of all this unintelligible world, Is lightened:
- that serene and blessed mood,
by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, 
We see into the life of things - and become a living soul.
