    What Motown Lyric Summarizes Your Philosophy of Life?

    Here's mine:

    "Take what you need to make each day sweet
    But then just like grains of wheat
    When it's over
    You've got to blow it to the fans of the windmill"

    'Bonus points' to ye who knows the song!

    "If your heart is breaking
    'Cause your dream's not coming true
    Leave a little room to start again

    If your faith is shaken
    Though it seems you thought it through
    Leave a little room for you to mend"

    During my retirement speech after 36 years of public school teaching, I surprised my colleagues by breaking out and singing these lyrics ,similar to the Oprah Show appearance, which were the sentiments I was feeling:
    "But now it's my turn
    If I don't have all the answers
    At least I know I'll take my share of chances
    Ain't no use of holding on
    When nothing stays the same
    So I'll let it rain
    'Cause the rain ain't gonna hurt me
    And I'll let you go
    'Though I know it won't be easy."

    Great lyrics from a great song.
