But liars we can never trust,
Though they should speak the thing that's true;
And he that does one fault at first.
And lies to hide it, makes it two.
Against Quarrelling and Fighting.
Let dogs delight to bark and bite.
For God has made them so;
Let bears and lions growl and fight.
For 't is their nature too;
But children you should never let
Such angry passions rise;
Your little hands were never made
To tear each other's eyes.
Source of true happiness.
The happiness of human kind
Consists in rectitude of mind;
A will subdu'd to reason's sway.
And passions praetis'd to obey;
An open and a gen'rous heart,
Refin'd from selfishness and art;
Patience which mocks at fortune's pow'r,
iVnd wisdom neither sad nor sour.
