Don't ask anyone 'What can I do for you?' Just to defy you, they ask you the impossible.
When they fail to do something, instead of blaming themselves, you're held responsible.
Maturity has nothing to do with age. Whether young or old, you’re reasonable, sensible.
Likewise, you are active, ambitious, but realistic. You can achieve only what is possible.
You ridicule no one, knowing that mocking others, it’s yourself that you are mocking.
You certainly won’t distort your beautiful face by the grimaces you would be making.
You were born an eagle, but he made you believe, by repeating, for centuries time an again,
That you were but a chicken. You succumbed. To keep you under control, he had all to gain.
If you are a teacher, in order not to mislead your students, be selective of what you teach,
Just as a mother, in order to prevent her child from being hurt, she tells him, 'don't touch.'
As teacher you cheer students. Yet you don't play the fool. You are as a sage.
So, you make them understand that the classroom is a workshop not a stage.
When you suffer so much you can't help asking yourself, ‘What is all this suffering for?’
Then the answer comes when you recover and find yourself feeling better than before.
Be cheerful, but avoid bad jokes, don’t make unnecessary remarks, and so don’t tease.
What you say may offend people instead of pleasing them and make them feel at ease.
Don't say anything indiscriminately to everyone even if you are not serious, but only joking.
Because what may be fun for one culture; for another could be unpleasant, even shocking.
When you walk and talk normally in the world of the lame and the stammerer, you are mocked.
They think that something’s wrong with you and you’re abnormal, weird. You are not shocked.
Only because they were a beard, they are ill shaven, they think they will be given,
Without having done anything for it, a free entry ticket to the kingdom of heaven.
For centuries you were enslaved, in addition to the false beliefs you have been taught.
You accepted it as your fate. It surely was for your own god. So wrongly you thought.
He always says unpleasant things to hurt your feelings, to make you cry.
But he says nothing to make you laugh; feel good. He wouldn't even try.
When stricken by pain, don't let yourself overwhelmed by it, however severe.
It will pass. If it lingers you go on resisting it until it subsides, you persevere.
