'You must be,' said the cat, 'or you wouldn't have come.'

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...
Step with care and great tact
And remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

Being once displaid, doth fall that verie howre.

And I am proofe against their enmity.
My life were better ended by their hate,
Then death proroged wanting of thy Love.
