Scatter Seeds Of Kindness



If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

If you’re anything the majority of the population, then you understand the obsession with power couple Beyoncé and JAY-Z.  Well, it’s time to get hyped.  After the incredible success of their “Apes**t,” song which was filmed in Louvre in Paris, the museum has created an entire guided tour that in inspired by Beyoncé and JAY-Z that you, yourself can take!

Those who are lucky enough to have the chance to take this tour will be taken through all 17 pieces that were featured in the music video.  The tour lasts for an exciting hour and a half and is self-guided, with details and descriptions of the art on the tour’s landing page.  So even if you’re not crazy in love with Louvre, you can still learn about these historic pieces of art.

But if you are into art history, then it’s basically a dream come true.  The Louvre offers other themed tours as well, such as one for The Da Vinci Code, and another inspired by the Black Eyed Peas.

We’re most excited though to get an in-depth look at the art that inspired this iconic music video on the Carter tour.
