What a beautiful sign just to follow, “stop, do not be a slave to your ego”. Once neglect and unconsciously obeyed, deprive from humanity shall be the grade. Just tend to the garden of purposes you own, keep the pride and have your aims grown.
“Embroider your life with good deeds; keep your buttons of traits as your weaving seeds. Wet them with humbleness and sacrifice, some love and smile will also be wise. Just then your world shall finally flourish, with a great success in your way to accomplish. And when it is the time to gain what you have done, beautiful harvest is your reward bun.” By Rim Salamouny
