The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook – William James.

For each of us, there’s an assigned length of time
to live and see a little of the unlimited sights life offers,
and to do the little we could if we choose,
to add beauty to sounds and sights of life.

Unfortunately, for the few who choose to add a little to life,
time is never on their side,
just as it isn’t for those who do nothing but want to live forever.

But the wise one learns to save time,
cutting off little minds and other time wasters,
overlooking little fights and
focusing every second and every ounce of energy on winning big fights.
