It begins

To stop and to begin again,
No longer to stretch and rest,
That's life you must accept.

To begin once again, but to begin well,
no longer to make mistakes,
that's life you must percept.

To go on the best way you can,
no longer to stop without reason,
That's the way you must intercept.
-- Ivanka Slavkovska
