SONNET: OF MODERATION AND TOLERANCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: He that has grown to wisdom hurries not
Last Line: Then judge not thou thy fellows what they are.
Subject(s): Moderation; Tolerance


HE that has grown to wisdom hurries not,
But thinks and weighs what Reason bids him do
And after thinking he retains his thought
Until as he conceived the fact ensue.
Let no man to o'erweening pride be wrought,
But count his state as Fortune's gift and due.
He is a fool who deems that none has sought
The truth, save he alone, or knows it true.
Many strange birds are on the air abroad,
Nor all are of one flight or of one force,
But each after his kind dissimilar:
To each was portioned of the breath of God,
Who gave them divers instincts from one source.
Then judge not thou thy fellows what they are.
