The Golden Rule
Shirley Brooks, The Golden Rule (London: Bradbudy, Agnew, & CO., 1875): 312.
1Be you to others kind and true,
2As you'd have others be to you,
3And neither do nor say to men
4Whate'er you would not like again :
5But if men do and say to you
6That which is neither kind nor true,
7Take a good stick, and say to men,
8"Don't say or do that same again."
