If thou, my brother-soul, art living true
To thine own higher self, in harmony
With its diviner thought, then thou art free
From all the discords of material life.
What others do is no concern of thine.
They may not injure thee. Their evil thought,
lf such they have, reverts upon themselves.
And, for the rest, if thou wouldst aid the march
Of onward progress toward the common good,
Think well, speak nobly, and thy work is done.
