3. As a child ,I learnt ,as we all do, that convention and what everyone else thought ,mattered. Then ,I unlearned it.
4. Tell my friends that a uniform silence is all my answer to my detractors. If I give them tit for tat ,it would bring me down to a level with them. Tell them that truth will take care of itself.
5. I will die a thousand deaths than lead a jelly-fish existence and yield to every requirement of this foolish world.
6. No man for long can occupy a position for which he is not fit .By doing well the duty which is nearest to us ,which is in our hands now, we make ourselves stronger and improving our strength in this manner ,we may reach a state in which it shall be our privilege to do the most coveted duties…..
