A REQUIREMENT

 

Satisfying a need

as sleep and food

does not demand searching, studying

or hesitating about acting.

Religion is also a requirement.

 

RIGHT THINKING

 

Everybody can speak

but few can think

and take right decisions.

Those are whom the God-nature

has intended them for being

at the head of human societies.

 

IN LOVE

 

In real love,

one likes giving

more than taking.

 

BRAINWASHING

 

One who knows

and has the means

of proceeding to the brainwashing

of the people,

can rule the world.

Namely whoever controls

the education and Mass Media.

 

THE BET OF LIFE

 

When you are able to turn

sadness into a song

and the struggle to survive

into a game,

you have already won the bet of life.

 

 

YOUTH

 

When you feel young

at mind and soul,

you feel young at body too

regardless of the years

you bear onto your shoulder.

Mind and body are interdependent

on health and development.

 

 

HUMAN FUTURE

 

If the planet which we live in

does not fade away

in the next one thousand hundred years,

the life that we live now then would seem

as it seems to us, the times when men were

dwelling in caves

and were living by hunting.

It’s a pity that we will not live in that age

even for a while.

 

REVENGE

 

It is an instinct of self-protection

of men and of many other

living beings too

and it is activated automatically

without the sense of logic.

 

THE PRICE OF PROGRESS

 

A car accident can

be caused either by human mistake

or by chance.

One can guard himself against the first one

but he will always be exposed

to the second one.

It is the price of progress

of the contemporary means of transport.

 

 

REPRISALS

 

The most hideous crimes occur

in the case of reprisals

which the innocent people usually pay,

because the minds of the victims

are always blurred

and fail to adhere to the measure

and pay it back in the same coin.

Civil wars begin

from reprisals.

 

 

EMPTY CONTENTS

 

Rights of the individual

are invention and acquisition

of the thriving peoples.

For the peoples, dying of hunger

and illnesses

are empty contents.
