"What if they gave a war and nobody came?"

Though repeated or rephrased in the 1960s to protest the Vietnam War, the original phrase came from a poem by Bertolt Brecht, written in the 1930s.

The entire poem is:

"What if they gave a war and nobody came?
Why, then, the war would come to you!
He who stays home when the fight begins
And lets another fight for his cause
Should take care:
He who does not take part
In the battle will share in the defeat.
Even avoiding battle will not avoid battle.
Since not to fight for your own cause
Really means
Fighting on behalf of your enemy's cause."
---
If you read the entire poem, it has the opposite meaning from what most people get from the first line.

Focus enough energy inward. Before befriending others, you have to be your own friend. Before making others happy, you have to make yourself happy. It's not called selfishness; it's called personal development. Its important to nurture your relationships, and it's important to start with YOU.

We were given two eyes to see, two legs to walk on, two arms to hug, but given only one heart....why is that you may ask? Well because God gave the other to someone else, all we need to do is find that person.

Kindness: one of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another. If someone is in need, lend them a helping hand. Do not wait for a thank you. True kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return.
