Good Words

"To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable; and
wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think
quietly, talk gently, act
listen to stars and buds, to babes and
sages, with open heart; await occasions,
hurry never...this is my symphony."
~ William Henry Channing


  1. A strong resemblance to the Symphony of Chi Omega...

    "To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to place scholarship before social obligations and character before appearances; to be, in the best sense, democratic rather than 'exclusive', and lovable rather than 'popular'; to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to act sincerely, to choose thoughtfully that course which occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly always; to be discouraged never..."

    Cardinal and straw. Skulls. You know, the whole thing.

  2. you did it - you went there.

    Ali D, I expect no less! "In the shades of evening, there will be no grieving..." Love me some Chi Omega pride.
