I was given mine rather early on. So perhaps its harder to see that not everyone has been given theirs.
Other things I'm trying to internalise:
- Anger is like taking a poison, and waiting for the other person to die.
- An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
- When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bustling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.
Needless to say, knowing a thing and acting on it are two different things, and I'm still a long long way off from sainthood. or even its cousin, a good child, respectful of elders.
