Quote:
There was a very cautious man
Who never laughed or played
He never risked, he never tried,
He never sang or prayed.
And when he on day passed away,
His insurance was denied,
For since he never really lived,
They claimed he never really died.

It gets attributed to John C. Maxwell, but sites also say that it's an anonymous poem, or something like that.
A true source would be great to know.

Thanks in advance!

Just hung on Google and found only 2 domain representing this quote using double quotes. And both mentioned the quote is by John C. Maxwell.

Phaedrus has been doing a terrific job answering all the quotation queries on his own for the last few years, but there are no other moderators around at all.

Well, this Poeatreeman seems to be hijacking a bunch of threads.

I think you should add the poetry to your Outlook forum. It is best to answer the thread without resorting to verse.
