    What you get is not the game,
    What you give has all the fame...
    When you are happy is not the challenge,
    When you make happiness has all the excellence...
    Where you are loved is not the end,
    Where you have loved takes all the pain...
    Give more, make others happy,
    And love shall be yours in any way...
