ancestors

If you could see your ancestors all standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not?
Or don’t you really know? . . .

But here’s another question
Which requires a different view
If you could meet your ancestors
Would they be proud of you?

efforts

In all my efforts to learn to read, my mother shared fully my ambition and sympathized with me and aided me in every way she could. If I have done anything in life worth attention, I feel sure that I inherited the disposition from my mother.
