Not sure if the quote [Two men looked out from prison bars-one saw mud the other stars.] was indeed by Langston Hughes. But it meant that one has the choice to accept the inevitable and look above for stars; or one can count one's blessings or problems.. A net searched seemed to reference Hughes or Frederick Langbridge or Dale Carnegie. Anyone out there with definitive source?
Octogenarian Bob read his memoir for an audience: A good life is one of risks coupled with, well of course, creativity, love and giving back within one’s capacity to do so. The single most important regret is that I didn’t live up to that code. Yet my life has been exceeding full and bountiful, and that helps me keep tilting towards windmills, all of which reminds me of a Langston Hughes poem. It’s one of my favorites. [Two men looked up from the prison bars. One saw mud and one saw stars.]
Bod continued: If I learned anything over these years, it’s that the thrill of my life has been more in the chase and not so much in the catching. I guess some things never change. I just keep going around and around. That which we are, we are. So at some point this rambling narrative must end. And I’ve always been one who would rather jump before I’m pushed. So for me, it’s sooner rather than later. So be it.
