Think Before Reacting

When judging someone else my friend, you never should for get, that there's, no doubt, at least one thing not known to you as yet; 'bout circumstances of the one, which known, would temper you, and make you ask: if in his place I wonder what I'd do? It may be someone crossed his path and ruffled up his day, and that is why he spoke those words he'd never planned to say. And you, because you did not know, a judgement harsh did make, if you'd but known, perchance a prayer you'd offered for his sake. And he, no doubt, would then have felt a strange and pleasant glow; think how it might have changed his day, tho' you might never know. Nor pat yourself upon the back that somthing great you've done, yet your regard for someone else had turned him to the SON. This world, no doubt, would sweeter be and we'd be more relaxed, If we'd remember that each man with problems great is taxed: and so he often says the things he later does regret. But if our hearts are filled with love, those words we'll just forget. -Nels Stjernstrom
