The Bridge Builder
An old man going down a lone highway
Came in the evening cold and gray
To chasm vast and deep and wide
Throughout which was flowing a sullen tide.
The old man crossed in the twilight dim;
But he turned when safe on the other side
And built a bridge to span the tide.
“Old Man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,
“You are wasting your strength with building here;
Your journey will end with the ending day;
You never again must pass this way;
You have crossed the chasm deep and wide—
Why build you this bridge at the eventide?”
The builder lifted his gray head.
“Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said.
There followeth after me today
A youth whose feet must pass this way
This swollen stream, which was naught to me
To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
Good friend, I am building a bridge for him.”
TODAY IS THE YOUTH OF YOUR OLD AGE

In Chiropractic we do not care about what conditions you know about.
We are concerned with the conditions that are developing, that you do not know about yet.
A MAN JUMPS OFF A HIGH RISE BUILDING AND
AS HE PASSES EACH WINDOW HE LOOKS INSIDE, WAVES, AND
SAYS, “I AM DOING GREAT SO FAR!”
