"[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!

" - Ellen P. Allerton
(1835 1893), American poet whose inspiration probably came from her life on farms in rural New York, Wisconsin, and Kansas.

[Quote No.53355] Need Area: Body > Grooming
"[Poem: about beauty and how it differs between appearance - 'only skin-deep', and substance - 'from the heart']

'Beautiful Things'

Beautiful faces are those that wear -
It matters little if dark or fair -
Whole-souled honesty printed there.

Beautiful eyes are those that show,
Like crystal panes where hearth-fires glow,
Beautiful thoughts that burn below.

Beautiful lips are those whose words
Leap from the heart like songs of birds,
Yet whose utterance prudence girds.

Beautiful hands are those that do
Work that is earnest and brave and true,
Moment by moment the long day through.
