Words of wisdom 4


Pledge not your gold better to be sold
Never run away from problems to face
If intelligent never purchase on credit
Avoid friendship always with fools

Walk not all alone in unknown places
Take not liberty for dining with enemies
Greed not for belongings other than yours
Talk not anything that hurts and pains others

Lotus blooms by the rays of Sun
When taken out from water
the same rays make it wither away
It is the place that matters not anything else

Never serve a master who finds
faults in all that you do as is your
Position that of a frog living under the
Hood of a cobra with constant fear

A Child refuses milk that is offered with love
Under threat prepared to drink even poison
Love pampers and affection misfires
Fear of punishment instills discipline

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
