Edgar Alan Guest
If no one smiled and no one cheered
And no one helped us along,
If each every moment took care of itself
And good things went to the strong,
If nobody cared just a little for you
And nobody thought about me,
And we stood alone in the battle of life,
What a dreary old world it would be.
Life is sweet just because of the friends we have made
And things in common which we share.
We want to live on, not because of ourselves,
But because of the people who care.
Its giving and doing for somebody else-
On that all life's splendor depends
And the joy of this world, when you've summed it all up,
Is found in the making of friends.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
