Prevention is Better than Cure

“The child is wandering into danger great, / The mother draws it from a downward fate, / Thus stops its fall; better thus ‘tis quite plain, / Than broken limbs to have, and hours of pain. / Would you prevent a man from drinking rum, / Destroy his liquor, and the work is done."—Barber, 1857
