Subject(s): Conduct Of Life


THE goodness of the heart is shown in deeds
Of peacefulness and kindness. Hand heart
Are one thing with the good, as thou shouldst be.
Do my words trouble thee? then treasure them.
Pain overgot gives peace, as death doth Heaven.
All things that speak of Heaven speak of peace.
Peace hath more might than war; high brows are calm;
Great thoughts are still as stars; and truths, like suns,
Stir not, but many systems tend around them.
Mind's step is still as Death's; and all great things
Which cannot be controll'd, whose end is good.
