For a Better Way to Live

Let your actions always speak of you, but be forever on guard against the terrible traps of false pride and conceit that can halt your progress. The next time you are tempted to boast, just place your fist in a full pail of water, and then you remove it, the hole remaining will give you a correct measure of your importance.

Like love, it cannot be love at all if it is not redeemed by actions as also faith works alike. Faith moves you into action and if it doesn't, we could hardly justify it.

On the other way around, it is tempting to think after few dosage of fame that you are more important than others – false pride and arrogance toll down in your head.

Think about this, would there be fame without fanatics, would there be crowned Miss Universe without the least in the contestants, would there be politics without voters, so would there be you without farmers tending for your food to eat?

It would even be unbecoming for a president to claim that he is more important than a street sweeping metro aid. I believe there is a purpose why he is sweeping the streets and he is a president. I believe we have all our proper place under the sun.

Perhaps, maggots will one day tell us that we are all the same – 6 feet under the ground!

Always drive your best self on the highway but don't forget your breaks. Other individuals are not the complete measure of yourself it is what you do that measures you. Although, it is said that man is the measure of all things, that measurement fall short when you use that to your fellow men.

You'll never lose a thing anyway if you'll remain humble – except that you free yourself from trouble.
