Mediocrity rules in this world, and successful is he who knows how to appease them - the mediocre class.
You are at constant battle with life… Your success is defined by how long you have had the upper hand over it. The key is to never yield when you have the lower hand. Life is after all not so fierce a warrior. So fetter the fear before it fans out its feather.
Tears are one of the wonders that manifest God’s greatness: they ooze out of the eyes to bear off the pain when it gets unbearable. They wash away the painful memories, and keep our hearts from drowning in the ocean of dark emotions: if not for them this world would be full of bitter obnoxious people.
How can we humans claim ourselves to be superior to other animals? Is it because of the technological development we’ve made? Destroying one resource to create another one! Egotism is what we humans are fraught with… We boast of our intellectual superiority, but why do we have to depend upon a dog to sniff out a thief, one from our own race? Why do we need a dog for that? Why don't we just train ourselves and do the job on our own? The defence we produce here is that we don't have as many olfactory receptors in our nose as there are in a dog, and a part of a dog’s brain is devoted to analyzing smells. But then why is our developed logical and intellectual ability considered superior to their developed instinctive abilities? Isn't it ironical that a race that considers itself superior to others needs another race that it looks down upon, to sniff out someone of its own race? Doesn't it seem at variance with our own asset, logic that is, that we, who haven't yet developed a reliable device to predict an earthquake, consider ourselves better than a race that has an uncanny ability to predict future catastrophe? Being at the top of the food chain isn’t everything; even the dinosaurs disappeared, and the ones which were at the bottom still exist… I truly believe in nature's impartiality.
