Simplicity is deceptively unappealing,
Whereas complexity is mysteriously simple.
True friends criticize you in your face and praise you at your back.
Persistent practice pays proportionately,
Provided you practice patiently.
Judge a person not by his apparent arrogance,
Instead judge him by his childlike innocence,
Or better by his benevolent munificence.
Life is certainly not a bed of roses,
It has as many thorns if not more;
I can tell you stories on both,
Which ones would you prefer?
