And the best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds,
For to see the good in action is what everybody needs.
I can soon learn how you do it if you’ll 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 wise and true,
But I’d rather get my lesson by observing what you do.
For I may not understand you and the high advice you give;
But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.
-Edgar A. Guest
