Keep paddling

"Love many. Trust few, always paddle your own canoe."

As far as I know, this quote is from a song.


I've travelled about a bit in me time.
Of troubles I've seen a few.
I found it far better in every clime
to paddle me own canoe.

Me wants they are small. I care not at all.
Me debts they are paid when due.
I drive away strife from the ocean of life,
and paddle me own canoe.

And I have no wife to bother me life,
no lover to prove untrue.
The whole day long I laugh with the song
and paddle me own canoe.

So love everybody, trust only the few,
as the world I go travelling through,
and never sit down with a tear and a frown,
but paddle your own canoe.

This song goes on forever and I won't bore you with the
remainder of it, suffice to say it paddles on and on (and on) ;)
I like it.

Very nice wood carving. BUT your saying is right on the money. Goes along with- " If you teach a man to fish, he can eat forever."

@nectarfizz @emer Thank you.

@ladydi Yes, I bought the tribal boat carving earlier this year. The quote gave me an opportunity to use it. :)
