    It's wiser being good than bad;
    It's safer being meek than fierce:
    It's fitter being sane than mad.
    My own hope is, a sun will pierce
    The thickest cloud earth ever stretched;
    That, after Last, returns the First,
    Though a wide compass round be fetched;
    That what began best, can't end worst,
    Nor what God blessed once, prove accurst.
