- We need to make decisions based upon what we know to be right, rather than letting others tell us what to do.
- We need to think for ourselves, rather than listening to what others tell us to think.
- We need to love our friends for who they are, rather than believing what others tell us about them.
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind---
Glory be to God for dappled things –
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced – fold, fallow, and plough;
And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.
All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
What's your favorite book, quote, or poem that says to you, "THINK FOR YOURSELF!" ?
