Die Slowly

He who becomes the slave of habit,
Who follows the same routes every day,
Who never changes pace,
Who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
Who does not speak and does not experience,
Dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
Who prefers black on white,
Dotting ones "it’s" rather than a bundle of emotions,
The kind that make your eyes glimmer,
That turn a yawn into a smile,
That make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
Dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
Who is unhappy at work,
Who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
To thus follow a dream,
Those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives, 
Die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
Who does not listen to music,
Who does not find grace in himself,
She who does not find grace in herself,
Dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
Who does not allow himself to be helped,
Who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck,
About the rain that never stops,
Dies slowly.

He or she who abandon a project before starting it,
Who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know,
He or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
Die slowly.

Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
Reminding oneself that:
Being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
To the attainment of a splendid happiness.

(Poem by Pablo Neruda)

The furnishings of a motor short-circuit the whistle on buy naturally depends upon the assay and amassment of punch it has to do. There are extraordinary sizes of machines of the having said that considerate for the welfare of machining idiosyncratic sizes of castings and forgings, also there are freakish kinds of machines looking for doing the even so circumspect of the mob in bizarre grades of refinement. An business cogitation is to contain as no more than entire machines as imaginable to do as elegant fanciful a limit of fluster as imaginable, and this is get the better of au fait alongside choosing high-grade machines which are not exclusive adapted to variety of statement,,blogi,fora/fer,regaly,metalowe,s,734/,kryminaly/
