Speak gently! -- It is better far

To rule by love, than fear --

Speak gently -- let not harsh words mar

The good we might do here!



Speak gently! -- Love doth whisper low

The vows that true hearts bind;

And gently Friendship's accents flow;

Affection's voice is kind.



Speak gently to the little child!

Its love be sure to gain;

Teach it in accents soft and mild: --

It may not long remain.



Speak gently to the young, for they

Will have enough to bear --

Pass through this life as best they may,

'T is full of anxious care!



Speak gently to the aged one,

Grieve not the care-worn heart;

The sands of life are nearly run,

Let such in peace depart!



Speak gently, kindly, to the poor;

Let no harsh tone be heard;

They have enough they must endure,

Without an unkind word!



Speak gently to the erring -- know,

They may have toiled in vain;

Perchance unkindness made them so;

Oh, win them back again!



Speak gently! -- He who gave his life

To bend man's stubborn will,

When elements were in fierce strife,

Said to them, "Peace, be still."



Speak gently! -- 't is a little thing

Dropped in the heart's deep well;

The good, the joy, which it may bring,

Eternity shall tell.

I think you have big dreams and srtong reasons to make them true. If you are limited for the moment, does not mean it will be forever. We have to stick to our wishes and try as hard as we can to make them true. I won't say it is easy, it isn't...But I hope you will be able to get where you want.

No Now, she is someone I would vote for, why not put Teresa in place of her Husband, then I would vote, Any woman who on a late night talk show at 70 y years old sttaes that she still feels sexy, well she has my vote, GO FOR IT TERESA! ON the other hand I do not feel the same about Hillary. something odd there. Just my thoughts that is all. love all of you and your wonderful comments.

Speak gently; it is better far
To rule by love than fear.
Speak gently; let no harsh word mar
The good we may do here.
Explanation:
In these lines poet says that when we speak with others we should use kind words. If we want to rule the people, we should get their obedience by love. Because obedience secured by love is better than that which is the result of fear. He further says that we should use mild words and not harsh and unkind words, because harsh words may spoil our good deeds.
2. Speak gently to the little child;
Its love is sure to gain;
Teach it in accent soft and mild,
It may not long remain.
Explanation:
In these line poet says that one should speak to a little child in soft and mild tone, it is certain that he will love him. If some one is teaching some thing to him, it might be taught in polite manner and soft accent, because who knows how long he will remain here.
3. Speak gently to the aged one;
Grieve not the careworn heart;
Whose sands of life are nearly run?
Let such in peace depart.

They have completed their time here in this world; they are here for very brief time. So they may be allowed to leave this world in pleasant mood.
4. Speak gently, itís a little thing
Dropped in the heartís deep well;
The good, the joy that it may bring
Eternity shall tell.

We should treat the elderly with care and love and make them happy because their course of life is nearly over. And we should let them depart this world in peace.
