like glowing bright spots on gloomy canvas of day
like sprightly twinkles in darkness of sky’s highway
like beacons atop tall structures to guide the airways
like a handful of cheer to gladden faces crestfallen in dismay
like a shower of applause from heavens in hot month of May!!
Dappled light filtering all trials and tribulations winning
Sun shining even after cloud’s shadowy bite, grinning!!
The path of life is never boring as it is not uniform
Adventurous ones take up this challenge head on
Success gained easily tastes only like sawdust
A penny earned by dint of sweat is precious thus
God provides many such lessons in HIS unique way
It is up to us with proper slant to life- to make it gay!!
never go by mere appearance and judge anything
depth cannot be based on surface looks of something
To plumb the depth we need special eyes to behold
See things at two levels apparent n invisibly endowed
Natures in its wisdom sets a great shining example
To get intrinsic value we need knowledge ample!!
Not by age but by capacity is wisdom acquired.
Titus Maccius Plautus Roman, Poet
However much you knock at nature’s door,
she will never answer you in comprehensible words.
Ivan Turgenev Russian, Novelist
Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.
Leonard Nimoy American, Actor
Knowledge shrinks as wisdom grows.
Alfred North Whitehead English, Mathematician
