Philosophy and Speeches

My Philosophy and Thoughts on Life and Work.

My favorite poem.
By Edgar Guess

I’d rather see a sermon, than hear one any day;
I’d rather one should walk with me, than merely show the way;
For the eye’s a better pupil and more willing than the ear;
Good counsel is confusing, but examples always clear;
And best of all the preachers, are the men who live their creeds;
For to see good put into action, is what everybody needs;
I can soon learn how to do it, if you let me see it done;
I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run;
And the lectures you deliver, may be very fine and true;
But I’d rather get my lesson, by observing what you do;
For I may misunderstand you, and the high advice you give;
But there’s no misunderstanding, how you Act and How you Live.
