     There’s no religion or philosophy
     So far that wins and rules all hearts and minds,
     That works to lift us out of misery,
     Leading us from temptations of all kinds.

     Where then is wholesome wisdom to be found
     That may be cultivated in our souls,
     Sprouting in us until our minds grow sound
     And all are then pursuing worthy goals?

          For every choice you make, one rule applies:
          Before you act, consider—“Is this wise?”
