This anonymous poem is variously titled " Stop and Think" or Why Not Think?"

It's a little thing to do,
Just to think.
Anyone, no matter who,
Ought to think.
Take a little time each day
From the minutes thrown away;
Spare it from your work or play;
Stop and think!

You will find that men who fail
Do not think.
Men who find themselves in jail
Do not think.
Half the trouble that we see,
Trouble brewed for you and me,
Probably would never be
If we'd think.

Shall we then consider this?
Shall we think?
Shall we journey, hit-or-miss,
Or shall we think?
Let's not go along by guess,
But rather to ourselves confess,
It would help us more or less
If we'd think!
