Zest for Life

I have never been bored an hour in my life.
I get up every morning wondering what new, strange, glamorous thing is going to happen and it happens at fairly regular intervals.
Lady Luck has been good to me and I fancy she has been good to everyone.
Only some people are dour, and when she gives them the come hither with her eyes, they look down or turn away, and lift an eyebrow.
But me, I give her the wink and away we go.
- William Allen White

My grandmother chose this poem to be read at her funeral. Although she didn't write this, I can only hear her voice when I read it.
