School of Thoughts

The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.

— Plutarch

Some people think that everything should be right,

While others think that we should make it right.

Some people think that this is world is bad,

While others think that it's just a drive so sad.

Some people think that we should live long,

While others think it as a wastage and are wrong.

Some people think that we should make money,

While others think that it is enough to have a penny.

Some people think that success needs determination and hard work,

While others think that you just need a good luck jerk.

Some people think that it is easy to win,

While others think that to win you have to commit a sin.

Some people think the same as you think,

While others just cannot enter your ring.

Yes, we should observe and think about other's views and then consider the best one because we can be wrong. Thanks for commenting and your views.

Thanks for your insights. Yes, we think differently, but we can learn from other when we take time to understand why we think what we think. Good job.
