Oh! My dear man!
Be not a prisoner of practice
Never you can enjoy poise and peace!
Practice may or may not be logical
Nor it may or may not be rational!
Do what is fair and right, good and just
Worry not as to what others talk and trust!
Fair and right, good and just go with the heart
With mind clear and heart quite pure let us start
A practice that is good, fair and just
To lead a life of peace and joy- a must!

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
