                   Being governed not by rules but by good sense
                   Reveals superior intelligence:
                   Rules are no more than children’s training wheels,
                   Used till one gains a centeredness that feels
                   Well-balanced, confident, dependable.

                   A higher law is what at last prevails
                   Beneath which any human statute pales:
                   That law, of course, is Love, by which we find
                   That our foremost mandate is to be kind.
