Poem by Arthur Guiterman
The Chip on the Shoulder
LEARN this now before you are older: Don’t go through life with a chip on your shoulder, Always aggrieved and ever offended, Fancying wrongs that are not intended. Let not a sense of humor desert you, Take it that nobody means to hurt you, Find no insult in idle chatter, Pass it over; it doesn’t matter. Look for the best in everybody, Value the wool, forget the shoddy; Get in the habit of liking people. Love is the spire on every steeple.
