I'd Rather

I’d rather see a lecture than hear one any day.

I'd rather one should walk with me than merely point the way.

The eye’s a better pupil and more willing than the ear.

Fine counsel is confusing, but example’s always clear.

And best of all the teachers are the men who live their creed.

For to see the good in action is what everybody needs.

I can soon learn how to do it if you let me see it done.

I can watch your hands in action but your tongue too fast may run.

And the lectures you deliver may be very wise and true.

But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.

For I may understand you and the high advice you give,

But there's no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.
