Here is the text of the "Take Time" poem (author unknown):

Take time to think   thoughts are the source of power.

Take time to play   play is the secret of perpetual youth.

Take time to read   reading is the fountain of wisdom.

Take time to pray   prayer can be a rock of strength in time of need.

Take time to love loving is what makes living worthwhile.

Take time to be friendly friendships give life a delicious flavor.

Take time to laugh laughter is the music of the soul.

Take time to give sharing brings joy to your heart.

Take time to work work is the price of success.

Take time to dream  dreams show you what is possible.

Take time to do your work well pride in your work nourishes the mind and the spirit.

Take time to show appreciation it's the frosting on the cake of life.


As far as we know, the "Take Time" poem is based on an old English prayer adapted from a Bible scripture (Eccl 3:1), and the original author of this version is unknown.
