Yoda and Luke Skywalker – Do or not do – there is no try.

Professor Dumbledore and Harry Potter – It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

Mr. Miyagi and The Karate Kid – First we learn, then we learn to fly.

Gandalf the Grey – All we have to decide is what to do with the time given us.

Uncle Ben and Peter Parker – With great power comes great responsibility.

Jiminy Cricket and Pinnochio – Always let your conscience be your guide.


A mentor can guide your steps

When life becomes too complex

Confused by the pull of many voices

Change our focus to viable choices


Baby steps at first we learn

Then leaps and bounds in turn

Solid earth beneath our feet

When a choice is bittersweet


Many challenges we may face

Easier with solid knowledge base

All too often no safety net

A mentor’s words ne’re forget
