Homilies


Humility, Knowledge and Pride
Are great things in a person's life
Humility;
Brings honour
Pride;
Comes before destruction
Pride brings downfall and shame

Humility;
Leads the way up the ladder of life
Humility and hardwork
Are twin brother
That care for you
A comfortable place in life
Humility comes before knowledge

Knowledge;
Create pride
Knowledge is good
Knowledge is hill
Ignorance is a hole
Knowledge is a throw
Ignorance is a fall

Knowledge is a push
Ignorance is a pull
Knowledge is progress
Knowledge heals
Ignorance sickens
Ignorance sometime
Is a better friend than knowledge

There is blissful ignorance
No blissful knowledge
Knowledge always brings pain
There is nothing as good to health
As the mind feeding the heart
With happiness instead of pain
There are some ways in which
Darkness is better than light

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
