Mitchell Sviridoff died at the age of 81. In over three decades, Sviridoff worked in the area of social policy and philanthropy. He worked on strategies for lifting people out of poverty and rebuilding neighborhoods. According to an obituary in The New York Times, in 1985 at a party held to celebrate his life’s work he recited these lines from a poem from William Butler Yeats:

God guard from those thoughts
Men think in the mind alone.
He that sings a lasting song
Thinks in a marrow bone.

Asked why he quoted Yeats, Sviridoff responded: “That is the way I function. I do things that do not seem logical at the beginning and sometimes fail. But when they succeed, they tend to be lasting songs.”

Have you found your song? That one thing you are, no matter what you are doing. It is perverse to think that the one thing God wants is what you are not. Our lives are God’s gift to the world in the making.
