As a nonprofit, the Cy Hall Museum relies entirely upon donations and memberships to keep its doors open. Throughout the year its small core of volunteers, docents and board members DO NOT COMPARE Do not compare your skills with all the best, For, falling short of them, you'll feel you've failed, But do not make the worst your litmus test For then your unused strengths will have been veiled. The need to be the best debilitates And causes friction with your fellow peers For shaming them in contest alienates, And nothing fades so quickly as the cheers. So if you have a talent to perfect, Improve yourself with careful increments And thereby gain an honest self-respect By besting former self-accomplishments. To be a better person than you've ever been, Will always be the greatest prize you'll ever win.
