Do good and good will come to you.

DOING good and being good,

Bestowing time, showing dedication, love,

Honesty, sincerity, trust and comprehension,

Much tolerance,

Making much allowance, 

Honouring and supporting totally,

Are the kind of thoughts that count truly.


Seeing the world with understanding,

Empathy, respect for human beings,

Humanity, for the downtrodden,

Just brotherhood, consideration

Casting away the prejudices,

Accepting differences,

To give peace,

To live and let live, to give justice,

Are certainly right reflections of kindness. 


Thus, doing good,

Will consequently invite good.
