Address To The Unco Guid

Rating: 2.7
My Son, these maxims make a rule,
An' lump them aye thegither;
The Rigid Righteous is a fool,
The Rigid Wise anither:
The cleanest corn that ere was dight
May hae some pyles o' caff in;
So ne'er a fellow creature slight
For random fits o' daffin.
Solomon.--Eccles. ch. vii. verse 16

Not one of Burns best known poems, but the last two verses in particular could be incorporated into any faith for tolerant judgement of others
