    Beautiful, it is indeed a poem to be read daily, by all. May I add a last few lines of A Credo to join hands with yours.

    Teach your soul
    Loving Kindness to all
    As credo! Panmelys 2014 Peace be with you for sharing such glowing words as an example to cherish. Kindly. (Report) Reply

    One of the most enduring messages for man. Let all religious discourse begin with this magnificent poem. I quote a few lines: Speak gently - let not harsh words mar / The good we might do here! / Let no harsh tone be heard; (Report) Reply
