"We are prompted by Holy Writ to ponder and think about things that are true, honest, lovely, and virtuous. Higher Thought is an attempt by the writer to consider many of life issues from a wholesome perspective. Written in an unusual manner, each question is considered in a prologue and then considered again in verse. Author William Rybolt’s writings range from contemplating higher thought to testing to the Prodigal Son. They cover a range of emotions, from humorous to serious to challenging. Rybolt ignites fresh and productive thoughts in the minds of his readers as he addresses the numerous issues of life in this unique and thought-provoking manner.
A Lasting Tribute
We honor those who live in fame
Give reverence to those who earn acclaim
Celebrate those of great repute
And dignify those who have been astute
We proudly erect edifices to remember a name
Build statues to edify those who share great gain
With monuments observe men of great thought
Fashion a model for bravery fought
However we choose to compliment
To recognize one whose life has been spent
What ever the mode or the artifact
Time will treat carelessly our commemorative act
That memento of steel or erection of stone
With passing of time will fall on its own
Hopelessly destined forgotten forever
Remembered by few and perhaps even never …"
