Walt Whitman Affirmation
"This is what you shall do:
Love the earth and sun and the animals,
despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks,
stand up for the stupid and crazy,
devote your income and labor to others,
argue not concerning God,
have patience and indulgence toward the people...
re-examine all you have been told at school
or church or in any book,
dismiss what insults your very soul,
and your flesh shall become a great poem."
