—you're on your own— was all he said that day long years ago
So long his name and face are lost in memory—s afterglow;
Nor do I recollect of pride or joy or doubt or fright
Or other circumstance which marked that time for solo flight
The cryptic words alone endure : he said —you're on your own—
And down through time I've found it so — the test—s to walk alone

Not that one choose to draw aside in churlish mein or vein,
From common lot of what life holds of pleasure, toil or pain
But that the call—s to rise and cruise alone with dreams unshared
Or plan alone for some far goal, for which none else has cared
Or fight alone for what you hold is worth a warrior—s strife
And ask no gain or fame or aught beyond the joy of life.

I owe a quenchless debt to him who bade me seize my fate
And hang it on the faith that I to it was adequate
For when he said —you're on your own— and sauntered on away
I knew that here, in four short words, was youth—s first judgment day
Not wit to learn, not test of skill, not pride to satisfy,
But will to walk down life in faith that life is theirs who try.

— Gill Robb Wilson

“Well, normally I’m against big things.
I think the world is going to be saved by millions of small things.
Too many things can go wrong when they get big.”

I like to remember things my own way.....

How I remembered them, not necessarily the way they happened.
