    Have you ever come across a beautiful piece of anonymous writing? If so do you want to contribute to this thread and share it? The only rules are:
    . Not too long (say no more than about 200 words)
    . Should be anonymous and not written by yourself

    Here one I bumped into somewhere in Webland for starters:

    "WHO AM I?

    I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.  I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.  I am completely at your command. Half the things you do you might just as well turn over to me and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.  I am easily managed—you must merely be firm with me.  Show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons I will do it automatically.  I am the servant of all great men; and alas, of all failures, as well.  Those who are great, I have made great. Those who are failures, I have made failures.  I am not a machine, though I work with all the precision of a machine plus the intelligence of a human.  You may run me for profit or run me for ruin—it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet.  Be easy with me and I will destroy you.  Who am I? I am habit!" – by Anonymous

    Comments on quotes without contributing are of course also welcome but it would be nice to accumulate a collection of great anonymous discoveries, don´t you think?

    As you journey on the Road of Life,
    My hope and prayer for you is that you are given:

    Enough happiness to keep you content
    trials to keep you strong
    sorrow to keep you human
    hope to keep you happy
    failure to keep you humble
    success to keep you eager
    friends to give you comfort
    wealth to meet your needs
    enthusiasm to look forward
    faith to banish depression
    determination to make each day better than yesterday.

    That's nice too mrpopo, thank you. Although I would have deleted the word "enough" in front of everyline after the first one. Which brings up another question: If the quotes are anonymous do you think we can take the liberty to tweak them for easier reading?

    Anymore?

    Just please don't get religious on me.

      I've tweaked it, is that a bit better?
