When you encounter difficulties and contradictions, do not try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time. Saint Francis de Sales

And it's knowing I'm not shackled by forgotten words and bonds

And the ink stains that have dried on some line

That keeps you in the back-roads

By the rivers of my memory that keeps you ever gentle on my mind
 
Gentle On My Mind
Recorded by Glen Campbell written by John Hartford
