“I claim credit for nothing! Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible player.”
— Albert Einstein
“Be kind,” advised Plato; “everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
Everyone we meet is privately fighting a hard battle. Wisdom, then, dictates I always keep in mind each man is nothing but a variation of myself. I strive therefore to judge no man, woman or child. After all, what do I really know . . . what do I really know? “For many people, the more you learn, the more you realize how little you actually know. Perhaps the highest wisdom boils down to this: show me a guy with a “big-head” and I’ll show you a guy with a “small-mind.” Be humble! Besides, who really knows?"

The only bird that will peck at an Eagle, is the crow. He sits on his back and bites his neck. The Eagle does not respond or fight with the crow. It doesn't waste time or energy on the crow. It simply opens its wings and begins to rise higher in the sky. The higher the flight, the harder it is for the crow to breathe. Eventually the crow falls due to lack of oxygen. Stop wasting your time with the crows. Just take them to your heights and they'll fade.
