All great leaders since Moses have known that a feared enemy must be crushed completely. (Sometimes they have learned this the hard way.) If one ember is left alight, no matter how dimly it smolders, a fire will eventually break out. More is lost through stopping halfway than through total annihilation: The enemy will recover, and will seek revenge. Crush him, not only in body but in spirit.
I only wanna be the man
to give you everything I can
every day and every night
love you for all my life.
I don’t wanna change the world
as long as you’re my girl
it’s more than enough,
just to be the man you love.
You can die from someone else’s misery – emotional states are as infectious as disease. You may feel you are helping the drowning man but you are only precipitating your own disaster. The unfortunate sometimes draw misfortune on themselves; they will also draw it on you. Associate with the happy and fortunate instead.
We live in bigger houses but have smaller families
We have more conveniences but less time
We have more degrees, but less common sense
More knowledge, but less judgement
More Experts, yet more problems.
We multiplied our possessions, and reduced our values
We have higher income, but lower morals
We talk too much, love too little and lie too often
We learnt how to make a living, but not a life
We added years to life, but not life to years
We conquered outer space, but not inner space.
We have split the atom, but not our prejudice
Where are we going next?
We wish we know what is in store
Though that would be a bore
A journey, not a destination
We race for the rise of nations
In face of many onslaughts
How we stood and fought
My peers i left them by
For they want to fly
Rooted to the ground i am
Play it again, Sam
Simple truths always show
What we already know
If this is how it should be
Then go ahead, set me free
For lest i be accused of jest
I wash my hands off this mess
Age plus four we shall see
What fogs we have been
For everything has a price to pay
That’s all i have to say
