Whatever mitigates the woes
or increases the happiness of others -
this is my criterian of goodness
And whatever injures society at large,
or any individual in it -
this is my measure of iniquity
For thus the royal mandate ran,
When first the human race began;
The social, friendly, honest man,
Whate'er he be
'Tis he fulfills great Nature's plan
And none but he.

 

Welcome to the online home
of the
Winnipeg Robert Burns Club

 
The Winnipeg Robert Burns Club sends its sincere condolences to Past President Myrna McRae and Club Piper Kirby McRae on the passing of husband and father Past President Roderick J McRae on July 14 in Kelowna B.C.
 
An honest man here lies at rest
As
e'er God with his image blest;
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm'd,
Few heads with knowledge so informed:
If there's another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
