The Essence Of Life

"I AM NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY I AM, I AM WHAT I THINK I AM. YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE, YOU ARE NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY YOU ARE." 


'Each age is an age that is passing; 
each is born, matures, grow older, and then it fades and dies. 
Every individual misunderstands and is misunderstood'. 
A man comes into this world without his consent and leaves against his will. 
On this earth, he is misjudged and misunderstood.
 In infancy, he is an angel, in boyhood he is a devil; 
in manhood he is a fool.

If he has a wife and family, he is a chum.
 If he is a bachelor, he's inhuman and mean.
 If he enters a public house, he is a drunkard. 
If he stays out, he's a fanatic and miser. 
 If he a poor, he has no brain.
 If he is rich, he has a crook. 

If he has brains, he is considered too smart. 
If he goes to temple, he is a hypocrite. 
If he stays away, he is a sinful man.
 If he gives the charity, it's for advertisement.
 If he does not, he's stingy and mean. 

Then what should we do as individuals standing on our feet? 
Should we feel obliged to yield to such sarcasms? .......................
The answer is : "I AM NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY I AM, I AM WHAT I THINK I AM. YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE, YOU ARE NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY YOU ARE."
