from Andrea Gibson’s poem, “Gospel Salt”

Line from the poem “Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood” by William Wordsworth. Probably the most famous section of the poem, this particular line, and the stanza it appears in, has reminded me there are no do-overs in life. We need to find the little wonders in the world to keep us going.
"Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind”
Thanks to Bob from Pino Bros. Ink in Cambridge, MA.

“There is no wrong train" from the book Evasion. Written by Anonymous.
The text is from a section in the book in which the author was told the wrong train to hop to get where he wanted to go. However, this “wrong train” ended up giving him a great time in a random city. After reading it, I started to see life as the same thing. Things get tough, and we may end up in some bad spots, but those bad spots are still awesome.
