Do you wish the world were better?
Let me tell you what to do.
Set a watch upon your actions.
Keep them always straight and true.
Rid your mind of selfish motives.
Let your thoughts be clean and high.
You can make a little Eden of the sphere you occupy.

Do you wish the world were wiser?
Well, suppose you make a start,
By accumulating wisdom in the scrapbook of your heart;
Do not waste one page on folly;
Live to learn, and learn to live.
if you want to give men knowledge,
You must get it, ere you give.
