The Eagle Soars On Silver Wings

Work with purpose.

Insist on integrity.

Never make excuses.

Never stop learning and growing.

Enjoy your work.

Resolve to stick with it.

“Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”  Isaiah 40:31

In 1971, Mary Kay traveled to Australia to launch the Company’s first subsidiary.  While there, she discovered a poem that spoke to heart as no other, a poem that would return home with her and take its place at the very core of our culture.  Holding an honored place in the Mary Kay Museum is the “On Silver Wings” sculpture commissioned in honor of the Company’s 25th anniversary.  Mary Kay loved the words so much she often used their stirring imagery to conclude her speeches and letters.

I have a premonition that soars on silver wings,

It is a dream of your accomplishment

Of many wondrous things,

I do not know beneath which sky

Or where you’ll challenge fate,

I only know it will be high,

I only know it will be GREAT.
