[Quote No.52218] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Poem: about the power of example and action.]

'Sermons We See'

I'd rather see a sermon,
Than hear one any day;
I'd rather one should walk with me,
Than merely tell the way.

The eye's a better pupil,
And more willing than the ear,
Fine counsel is confusing,
But example's always clear.

And the best of all the preachers,
Are the men who live their creeds,
For to see good put into action,
Is what everybody needs.

When I see a deed of kindness,
I am eager to be kind.
When a weaker brother stumbles,
And a strong man stands behind;

Just to see if he can help him,
Then the wish grows strong in me,
To become as big and thoughtful,
As I know that friend to be.

And all travelers can witness that,
The best of guides today,
Is not the one who tells them,
But the one who shows the way!

[Quote No.52290] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"Talking to Yourself About Other People:- Many of your thoughts are about other people: People you know well and people who are strangers to you, but affect your life in various ways. People you are related to and people you are friends with. People you find easy to deal with and people you find challenging. People you respect and like, and people you are upset with. People who are helpful to you and people you wish to help. People you interact with frequently, and people you meet just once. The way you view people determines how you get along with them. The Torah (Vayikra 19:18) tells us: ‘Love other people as yourself.’ Also, the Sages teach us in Pirkei Avos (4:1): ‘Who is an honorable person? Someone who honors and respects others.’ When you love and respect someone, you think about him in positive ways. Your self-talk is about his good qualities. You think about what you can learn from him, and this is the definition of a wise person. As the Sages (Pirkei Avos 4:1) say, ‘Who is wise? Someone who learns from everyone.’ When you associate people with their positive qualities and have positive thoughts and feelings about them, you speak to them more positively. You also act towards them with greater kindness and compassion. Yes, we need to be aware of the totality of people in order protect ourselves and others. But our major focus should be on what is good and right and admirable about others. Be strongly resolved to keep your mind focused on the virtues and positive qualities of other people. If your mind happens to think unnecessarily about what is wrong with other people, change your thoughts to what is good and right about them. Your thoughts about another person create a powerful energy. One of my favorite verses is from Mishlei/Proverbs (27:19). ‘As in water, face to face, so, too, is the heart of one person to another.’ When you think positive thoughts about another person, that person will tend to feel positively about you also. The deeper and more profound your thoughts and feelings of unconditional love, the more likely it is that this person will reciprocate." - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin
from his book, ‘Conversations With Yourself’, pp.96-7.

[Quote No.52302] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[The Golden Rule: treat others as you would like to be treated.] The Torah forbids us to harm or cause suffering to others. Even from a selfish perspective, we should be careful not to harm others, since we will ultimately suffer because of it. Some guidelines: -- Refrain from causing others pain or unpleasantness through actions or words. -- Refrain from insulting others. -- Refrain from talking negatively about others, unless it is necessary for a practical and constructive purpose. -- Refrain from lying to others. -- Refrain from deceiving others in financial matters. -- Refrain from causing others financial losses. The money of others should be as dear as our own!" - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin
From his book, 'Gateway to Happiness', p.139; Talmud - Avot 2:12; Mesilat Yesharim, ch.19.

"[[Poem:]

'Everything We Do'

We may not always realize,
That everything we do,
Affects not only our lives,
But touches others too.

A single happy smile,
Can always brighten up the day,
For anyone who happens,
To be passing by your way.

And a little bit of thoughtfulness,
That shows someone you care,
Creates a ray of sunshine,
For both of you to share.

Yes, every time you offer,
Someone a helping hand,
Every time you show a friend,
You understand.

Every time you have a kind,
And gentle word to give,
Or help someone to find beauty,
In this precious life we live.

For happiness brings happiness,
And loving ways bring love,
And giving is the treasure,
That contentment is made of.

[Quote No.52445] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Poem: about how discretion may be the better part of conversation:]

'They Should Have Asked My Husband'

You know this world is complicated, imperfect and oppressed
And it’s not hard to feel timid, apprehensive and depressed.
It seems that all around us tides of questions ebb and flow
And people want solutions but they don’t know where to go.

Opinions abound but who is wrong and who is right.
People need a prophet, a diffuser of the light.
Someone they can turn to as the crises rage and swirl.
Someone with the remedy, the wisdom, and the pearl.

Well . . . they should have asked my ‘usband, he’d have told’em then and there.
His thoughts on immigration, teenage mothers, Tony Blair,
The future of the monarchy, house prices in the south
The wait for hip replacements, BSE and foot and mouth.

Yes . . . they should have asked my husband he can sort out any mess
He can rejuvenate the railways he can cure the NHS
So any little niggle, anything you want to know
Just run it past my husband, wind him up and let him go.

Congestion on the motorways, free holidays for thugs
The damage to the ozone layer, refugees and drugs.
These may defeat the brain of any politician bloke
But present it to my husband and he’ll solve it at a stroke.

He’ll clarify the situation; he will make it crystal clear
You’ll feel the glazing of your eyeballs, and the bending of your ear.
Corruption at the top, he’s an authority on that
And the Mafia, Gadafia and Yasser Arafat.

Upon these areas he brings his intellect to shine
In a great compelling voice that’s twice as loud as yours or mine.
I often wonder what it must be like to be so strong,
Infallible, articulate, self-confident ... and wrong.

When it comes to tolerance – he hasn’t got a lot
Joyriders should be guillotined and muggers should be shot.
The sound of his own voice becomes like music to his ears
And he hasn’t got an inkling that he’s boring us to tears.

My friends don’t call so often, they have busy lives I know
But its not everyday you want to hear a windbag suck and blow.
Encyclopaedias, on them we never have to call
Why clutter up the bookshelf when my husband knows it all!

"[A poem:- about the need for humble self-esteem rather than vain-glorious, prideful self-importance.]

'Ozymandias'

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: 'Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.'

"[Poem:- about learning empathy and compassion, and other important virtues, as 'the blessings in disguise' or 'the silver linings' of adversity, problems, pain, frustration, challenges, mistakes, etc.]

'Hymn to Adversity'

Daughter of Jove, relentless power,
Thou tamer of the human breast,
Whose iron scourge and torturing hour
The bad affright, afflict the best!
Bound in thy adamantine chain
The proud are taught to taste of pain,
And purple tyrants vainly groan
With pangs unfelt before, unpitied and alone.

When first thy Sire to send on earth
Virtue, his darling child, design’d,
To thee he gave the heavenly birth
And bade to form her infant mind.
Stern, rugged Nurse! thy rigid lore
With patience many a year she bore;
What sorrow was, thou bad’st her know,
And from her own she learn’d to melt at others’ woe.

Scared at thy frown terrific, fly
Self-pleasing Folly’s idle brood,
Wild Laughter, Noise, and thoughtless Joy,
And leave us leisure to be good.
Light they disperse, and with them go
The summer Friend, the flattering Foe;
By vain Prosperity received,
To her they vow their truth, and are again believed.

Wisdom in sable garb array’d
Immersed in rapturous thought profound,
And Melancholy, silent maid,
With leaden eye, that loves the ground,
Still on thy solemn steps attend:
Warm Charity, the general friend,
With Justice, to herself severe,
And Pity dropping soft the sadly-pleasing tear.

O! gently on thy suppliant’s head
Dread Goddess, lay thy chastening hand!
Not in thy Gorgon terrors clad,
Nor circled with the vengeful band
(As by the impious thou art seen)
With thundering voice, and threatening mien,
With screaming Horror’s funeral cry,
Despair, and fell Disease, and ghastly Poverty;-

Thy form benign, O Goddess, wear,
Thy milder influence impart,
Thy philosophic train be there
To soften, not to wound my heart.
The generous spark extinct revive,
Teach me to love and to forgive
Exact my own defects to scan,
What others are to feel, and know myself a Man.

"[Poem:]

'Speak Gently'

Speak gently! — It is better far
To rule by love, than fear —
Speak gently — let not harsh words mar
The good we might do here!
Speak gently! — Love doth whisper low
The vows that true hearts bind;
And gently Friendship's accents flow;
Affection's voice is kind.
Speak gently to the little child!
Its love be sure to gain;
Teach it in accents soft and mild: —
It may not long remain.
Speak gently to the young, for they
Will have enough to bear —
Pass through this life as best they may,
'T is full of anxious care!
Speak gently to the aged one,
Grieve not the care-worn heart;
The sands of life are nearly run,
Let such in peace depart!
Speak gently, kindly, to the poor;
Let no harsh tone be heard;
They have enough they must endure,
Without an unkind word!
Speak gently to the erring — know,
They may have toiled in vain;
Perchance unkindness made them so;
Oh, win them back again!
Speak gently! — He who gave his life
To bend man's stubborn will,
When elements were in fierce strife,
Said to them, 'Peace, be still.'
Speak gently! — 't is a little thing
Dropped in the heart's deep well;
The good, the joy, which it may bring,
Eternity shall tell.

" - David Bates
(1809 – 1870), American poet. This poem is often attributed to G.W. Langford. Although it's hard to trace down where it first appeared, all known copies printed in England before 1900 attributed it to either Langford or 'anonymous'. Langford family tradition has it that it was written by G.W. Langford while he was visiting his birthplace in Ireland in 1845. The earliest known publication of the poem in England was in 1848. But in America... In 1986 a copy of the Philadelphia Inquirer from July 15, 1845 was discovered with Speak Gently printed on page two -- and signed with the initials D.B. A later work by David Bates, The Eolian, 1849, also includes the poem, and Bates' son confirms that his father wrote it. While we don't really know who wrote the poem, currently most people seem to be favoring the D. Bates theory. [Refer http://everything2.com/title/Speak+Gently ]

[Quote No.52615] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"There are always ways to 'spin' the facts to support the conclusion that a person desires to communicate. For example during 2013 and 2014 the politicians wanted to suggest the world economy was improving. So when oil price increased in 2013 they said this was due to the world economy improving and so demand for petrol was increasing. In 2014 when oil prices decreased they said this was positive for the world economy as it would mean that less money would be spent on petrol and so more money would be available for people to spend on their other desires. It is not difficult to imagine 'spin' that would have shown that both these prices in oil would have been bad for the world economy. This is why being skeptical is important so that information used to help people choose is as truthful and unbiased as possible!" - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

'The Net'

I made you many and many a song,
Yet never one told all you are--

Were flung to catch a star;

It was as though I curved my hand
And dipped sea-water eagerly,
Only to find it lost the blue
Dark splendor of the sea.

'The Power Of Words'

'Tis a strange mystery, the power of words!
Life is in them, and death. A word can send
The crimson colour hurrying to the cheek.
Hurrying with many meanings; or can turn
The current cold and deadly to the heart.
Anger and fear are in them; grief and joy
Are on their sound; yet slight, impalpable:-
A word is but a breath of passing air.

'Before It Is Too Late'

If you have a tender message,
Or a loving word to say,
Do not wait till you forget it,
But whisper it today;

The tender word unspoken,
The letter never sent,
The long forgotten messages,
The wealth of love unspent -

For these some hearts are breaking,
For these some loved ones wait;
So show them that you care for them
Before it is too late.

'Do It Now'

If with pleasure you are viewing any work a man is doing,
If you like him or you love him, tell him now;
Don't withhold your approbation till the parson makes oration
And he lies with snowy lilies on his brow;

No matter how you shout it he won't really care about it;
He won't know how many teardrops you have shed;
If you think some praise is due him now's the time to slip it to him,
For he cannot read his tombstone when he's dead.

More than fame and more then money is the comment kind and sunny
And the hearty, warm approval of a friend.
For it gives to life a savor, and it makes you stronger, braver,
And it gives you heart and spirit to the end;

If he earns your praise - bestow it; if you like him let him know it;
Let the words of true encouragement be said;
Do not wait till life is over and he's underneath the clover,
For he cannot read his tombstone when he's dead.

"[Poem:]

'The Tone Of Voice'

It's not so much what you say
As the manner in which you say it;
It's not so much the language you use
As the tone in which you convey it;
'Come here!' I sharply said,
And the child cowered and wept.
'Come here,' I said --
He looked and smiled
And straight to my lap he crept.
Words may be mild and fair
And the tone may pierce like a dart;
Words may be soft as the summer air
But the tone may break my heart;
For words come from the mind
Grow by study and art --
But tone leaps from the inner self
Revealing the state of the heart.
Whether you know it or not,
Whether you mean or care,
Gentleness, kindness, love, and hate,
Envy, anger, are there.
Then, would you quarrels avoid
And peace and love rejoice?
Keep anger not only out of your words --
Keep it out of your voice.

"[Poem:- about praise, appreciation and guidance]

'To A Friend'

You entered my life in a casual way,
And saw at a glance what I needed;
There were others who passed me or met me each day,
But never a one of them heeded.

Perhaps you were thinking of other folks more,
Or chance simply seemed to decree it;
I know there were many such chances before,
But the others - well, they didn't see it.

You said just the thing that I wished you would say,
And you made me believe that you meant it;
I held up my head in the old gallant way,
And resolved you should never repent it.

There are times when encouragement means such a lot,
And a word is enough to convey it;
There were others who could have, as easy as not -
But, just the same, they didn't say it.

There may have been someone who could have done more
To help me along, though I doubt it;
What I needed was cheering, and always before
They had let me plod onward without it.

You helped to refashion the dream of my heart,
And made me turn eagerly to it;
There were others who might have (I question that part) -
But, after all, they didn't do it!

"[Poem: about the importance of empathy and communication for understanding and forgiveness - for often 'to know all is to forgive all'.]

'If I Knew You And You Knew Me'

If I knew you and you knew me --
If both of us could clearly see,
And with an inner sight divine
The meaning of your heart and mine --

I'm sure that we would differ less
And clasp our hands in friendliness;
Our thoughts would pleasantly agree
If I knew you, and you knew me.

If I knew you and you knew me,
As each one knows his own self, we
Could look each other in the face
And see therein a truer grace

Life has so many hidden woes,
So many thorns for every rose;
The 'why' of things our hearts would see,
If I knew you and you knew me.

" - Nixon Waterman
(1859 – 1944) was an American newspaper writer, poet and Chautauqua lecturer, who rose to prominence in the 1890s. This poem was published in his book of poems, 'In Merry Mood; A Book Of Cheerful Rhymes', in 1902.

"[Poem:]

'Desiderata' (Latin: 'Things Desired')

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit...

...

" - Max Ehrmann
(1872 – 1945) American writer, poet, and attorney from Terre Haute, Indiana, widely known for his 1927 prose poem 'Desiderata' (Latin: 'Things Desired'). He often wrote on spiritual themes. [In 1956, the Reverend Frederick Kates, rector of Saint Paul's Church in Baltimore, Maryland, included 'Desiderata' in a compilation of devotional materials for his congregation. The compilation included the church's foundation date: 'Old Saint Paul's Church, Baltimore A.D. 1692'. Consequently, the date of the text's authorship was (and still is) widely mistaken as 1692, the year of the church's foundation. Refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desiderata ]

"We have to distrust each other. It is our only defense against betrayal. [Because people learn the advantages of lying the law strictly forbids 'fraud' and deception. That just means that there is legal recourse if it can be proven in a court of law. Better though for it not to get to that stage so best to be skeptical and 'trust but verify' as they say.]" - Tennessee Williams

"[Poem:- about the strange theory of reciprocity - 'What you give, you get!' and the equally strange theory of expectation as perception - 'What you look for, you see!']

'The Right Kind of People'

Gone is the city, gone the day,
Yet still the story and the meaning stay:
Once where a prophet in the palm shade basked
A traveler chanced at noon to rest his mules.
‘What sort of people may they be,’ he asked,
‘In this proud city on the plains o’erspread?’
‘Well, friend, what sort of people whence you came?’
‘What sort?’ the packman scowled; ‘why, knaves and fools.’
‘You’ll find the people here the same,’ the wise man said.

Another stranger in the dusk drew near,
And pausing, cried, ‘What sort of people here
In your bright city where yon towers arise?’
‘Well, friend, what sort of people whence you came?’
‘What sort?’ the pilgrim smiled with lifted head;
‘Good, true, and wise.’
‘You’ll find the people here the same,’
The wise man said.

'You Never Can Tell'

You never can tell what your thoughts will do,
In bringing you hate or love;
For thoughts are things, and their airy wings
Are swifter than carrier doves.
They follow the law of the universe –
Each thing must create its kind,
And they speed o’er the track to bring you back
Whatever went out from your mind.

"[Poem: about the dangers of gossip]

'The Monk And The Peasant'

A peasant once unthinkingly
Spread tales about a friend.
But later found the rumors false
And hoped to make amend.

He sought the counsel of a monk,
A man esteemed and wise,
Who heard the peasant's story through
And felt he must advise.

The kind monk said: 'If you would have
A mind again at peace,
I have a plan whereby you may
From trouble find release.

Go fill a bag with chicken down
And to each dooryard go
And lay one fluffy feather where
The streams of gossip flow.'

The peasant did as he was told
And to the monk returned,
Elated that his penance was
A thing so quickly earned.

'Not yet,' the old monk sternly said,
'Take up your bag once more
And gather up the feathers that
You placed at every door.'

The peasant, eager to atone,
Went hastening to obey,
No feathers met his sight, the wind
Had blown them all away.

"[Poem: about how a kind word can win a friend and their gratitude]

'Accept My Full Heart's Thanks'

Your words came just when needed. Like a breeze,
Blowing and bringing from the wide salt sea
Some cooling spray, to meadow scorched with heat
And choked with dust, and clouds of sifted sand,
That hateful whirlwinds, envious of its bloom,
Had tossed upon it. But the cool sea breeze
Came laden with the odors of the sea
And damp with spray, that laid the dust and sand
And brought new life and strength to blade and bloom.
So words of thine came over miles to me,
Fresh from the mighty sea, a true friend's heart,
And brought me hope, and strength, and swept away
The dusty webs that human spiders spun
Across my path. Friend - and the word means much -
So few there are who reach like thee, a hand
Up over all the barking curs of spite,
And give the clasp, when most its need is felt, -
Friend, newly found, accept my full heart's thanks.

'Erasers'

Erasers are the nicest things!
Of that there is no doubt.
We write wrong words. A few quick swipes -
And big mistakes fade out.
And you will find eraser,
Of a very different kind,
Extremely helpful, if you will try
To bear these facts in mind:
When you bump someone in a crowd,
And almost knock her down,
A soft 'I'm sorry!' may bring smiles
And rub out that old frown.
Apologies, invariably,
Obliterate mistakes;
And three small words, 'I love you!'
Can erase the worst heartaches.

"[Poem: about how good communication involves being silent sometimes for example when speaking out will not help or when you or others are irrational, angry or upset.]

'The Most Vital Thing In Life'

When you feel like saying something
That you know you will regret,
Or keenly feel an insult
Not quite easy to forget,
That’s the time to curb resentment
And maintain a mental peace.
For when your mind is tranquil -
All your ill-thoughts simply cease.
If it is easy to be angry -
When defrauded or defiled,
To be peeved or disappointed -
If your wishes are denied:
But to win a worthwhile battle
Over selfishness and spite,
You must learn to keep strict silence -
Though you know you are in the right.
So keep your mental balance -
When confronted by a foe
Be it enemy in ambush,
or some danger you know.
If you are poised and tranquil -
When all around is strife,
Be assured that you have mastered -
The most vital thing in life.

'Parting'

If thou dost bid thy friend farewell,
But for one night though that farewell may be,
Press thou his hand in thine.
How canst thou tell how far from thee
Fate or caprice may lead his steps ere that to-morrow comes?
Men have been known to lightly turn the corner of a street,
And days have grown to months, and months to lagging years,
Ere they have looked in loving eyes again.
Parting, at best, is underlaid
With tears and pain.
Therefore, lest sudden death should come between,
Or time, or distance, clasp with pressure firm
The hand of him who goeth forth;
Unseen, Fate goeth too.
Yes, find thou always time to say some earnest word
Between the idle talk,
Lest with thee henceforth,
Night and day, regret should walk.

"[Poem: about admiration and praise]

'Praise'

Praise is a quiet and a gracious thing,
Like buds slow-forming, where the woods are bare,
Or silent recognition of the spring
Waiting to break upon the tremulous air.
—Praise is a pillow to the tired head,
—A lamp to light the traveler on his way;
—It's the generous sacrament of bread
—Shared between strangers at the close of day.
Swift is the word of praise to soothe the smart
Of old defeats, to light the troubled face;
Sweeter, oh, sweeter to the thirsty heart
Than streams of water in a desert place!

If you have a tender message,
Or a loving word to say,
Do not wait till you forget it,

The tender word unspoken,
The letter never sent,
The long forgotten messages,
The wealth of love unspent -

For these some loved ones wait;
So show them that you care for them
Before it is too late.

'Three Gates Of Gold'

If you are tempted to reveal
A tale to you someone has told
About another, make it pass,
Before you speak, three gates of gold;

These narrow gates. First, 'Is it true?'
Then, 'Is it needful?' In your mind
Give truthful answer. And the next
Is last and narrowest, 'Is it kind?'

And if to reach your lips at last
It passes through these gateways three,
Then you may tell the tale, nor fear
What the result of speech may be.

'The Boomerang'

One unkind word in the early morn
Will poison the thoughts for the day;
One unkind look to one we love
Will take all the sunshine away.
And twice all the sunshine we take away
From the lives of others at early day
We steal from ourselves the whole day long,
And we lose the beauty of earth's glad song.

One little smile when things go wrong
Will drive off many a frown;
One pleasant look, though the thoughts do rage,
Will put the tempter down.
And twice all the pleasure that we give out,
At the time when we are most tempted to pout,
Will sweeten our lives like a breath of May,
And the sun will shine through the whole glad day.

'The Sincere Man'

What gifts of speech a man may own,
What grace of manners may appear,
Have little worth unless his heart
Be honest, forthright and sincere.

The sincere man is like a rock,
As true as time; with honest eye
He looks you squarely in the face
Nor turns aside to make reply.

Nothing is hidden; there is no sham,
No camouflage to caution care,
No ifs or buts to haunt the mind,
Or secret doubts to linger there.

A crystal candor marks his speech,
With conscience clear he goes his way,
He does the thing he thinks is right
Nor cares a whit what others say.

Give me a man that is sincere,
And though a wealth of faults attend,
I shall clasp his hand in mine
And claim him as a trusted friend!

'Count Ten'

What shall we count to cool our angry pride?
Ten chilly digits standing in a line?
Oh, wiser far to count ten circling stars
That lean upon blue space: they will decline
To lend themselves to bitterness or pain.
Or we might count ten muted leaves that fall
Bearing a freight of somber autumn rain -
Ten leaves that fall, one here, one distantly,
In leisurely submission to the ground.
Or ten flecked pebbles lying in a pool
So hushed by dawn that the air holds no sound
Of water-motion. Or count ten mortal men
Who have come forth by the red gate of birth
To meet the wind . . . to learn the tang of laughter . . .
To wonder . . . and return into the earth.
For having counted, slowly we can lift
Our eyes to look on him who has offended,
Saying, 'How large and strange this life we live . . .
Was I enraged with you? . . . Well, that is ended . . .'

Blessed are they who sing in the morning;
Whose faces have smiles for their early adorning;
Who come down to breakfast companioned by cheer;
Who don't dwell on troubles or entertain fear;
Whose eyes smile forth bravely; whose lips curve to say:
'Life, I salute you! Good morrow, new day!'
Blessed are they who are pleasant to live with --
Blessed are they who treat one another,
Though merely a sister, a father or brother,
With the very same courtesy they would extend
To a casual acquaintance or dearly loved friend;
Who choose for the telling encouraging things;
Who choke back the bitter, the sharp word that stings;
Who bestow love on others throughout the long day --
Pleasant to live with and blessed are they.

Life took on a rosy glow:
Troubles shrank to half their size;
Sorrow wore a cheerful guise;
Work appeared to be the prize

Flowers no colour, birds no song;
Weakness ousted courage strong

Put the balance right again,
Saved two people lots of pain,
Brought the sunshine after Rain

"[Poem:- about the value of staying in control of your imagination and therefore your thoughts and emotions so you don't get angry and upset and then act and speak irrationally or impetuously]

'Keep Your Temper'

It never did, and never will,
Put things in better fashion,
Though rough the road, and steep the bill,
To fly into a passion.

And never yet did fume or fret
Mend any broken bubble;
The direst evil, bravely met,
Is but a conquered trouble.

Our trials -- did we only know --
Are often what we make them;
And molehills into mountains grow,
Just by the way we take them.

Who keeps his temper, calm and cool,
Will find his wits in season;
But rage is weak, a foaming fool,
With neither strength nor reason.

And if a thing be hard to bear
When nerve and brain are steady,
If fiery passions rave and tear,
It finds us maimed already.

Who yields to anger conquered lies --
A captive none can pity;
Who rules his spirit, greater is
Than he who takes a city.

A hero he, though drums are mute,
And no gay banners flaunted;
He treads his passions under foot,
And meets the world undaunted.

Oh, then, to bravely do our best,
Howe'er the winds are blowing;
And meekly leave to God tine rest,
Is wisdom worth the knowing!
