Printed on inside of card cover:-
 
 
 
 
WE live in deeds, not years;
In thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a
  -   -   dial:
We should count time by heart
  -   -   throbs;
He most lives who thinks most,
  -   -   feels the noblest, acts the
  -   -   best.
                                    P S Bailey.

 
Woven on silk:-

THINKING
IF you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't,
If you'd like to win, but you think you can't
It's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost,
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will -
It's all in a state of mind.

IF you think you are outclassed, you are;
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles dont always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who THINKS he can.
