He did not know how to love well,
but he loved as well as he knew.
And now not one can love so well,
Than he who did what he knew.
And plodding on to do, not think,
he learned a good deal more
Than he who plopping down to think
forgot to do any more.
I'd only one thing have you learn:
to do what you know to do.
Oh, my friend! the things you'd learn
if you'd do what you know to do!
