Wouldst thou be loved, dear friend? Then love!
Wouldst be esteemed? Then but admire!
Seek others' good, if thy desire
Is that thyself they should approve.
Wouldst thou direct? Then be content
That others should do likewise. Let
Their lives be thine: so shalt thou get
More than thou askest to thee sent.
Broad be thine aim; so broad thy mind
That none excluded be by thee!
Cast creeds away; let charity
Breathe in thought, deed, and word; and be
Content to live, and love mankind.
