Irish Wisdom

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! A day where everyone is a little bit Irish!  One of my favorite quotes of all time happens to be from W.B. Yeats, an Irish poet. It is a reminder that everyone has hopes and dreams and as social workers we can build on what little one may have to help a person get through difficult times.

“But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”

(Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven)
― W.B. Yeats, The Wind Among the Reeds 1899

This week try to be mindful of how easy it is to empower or bring down those in need.  As a social worker you may have more power than you realize. Have a wonderful St. Paddy’s day and a great week!
