Lessons from my grandfather: A poem of remembrance

Life is short, love long.
When you think you're always right, you're already wrong.
When the going gets tough, get tougher.
When the sailing is smooth, don't forget when it was rougher.
When you think no one is listening, don't be afraid to be loud.
Always be yourself; don't follow the crowd.
If you feel like giving up, don't give in to your fear.
When you think you've had enough, always persevere.
If you never take a chance, you'll never be able to grow.
And when you lose someone you love, never let them go.
