Behavior of the people with good qualities!


The people with good qualities
…shall not light the furnace
to prepare food for themselves;

shall not eat for their sake alone,
…but for helping others,
shall not make their kitchen dirt;

they will eat only
…after they offer to the God
which lives in their home!

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
