Don’t think of passing over the quiet persons!


The crane will be witheringly waiting
at the outlet of the irrigation sluice allowing
the small fish to run till the suitable fleshy fish comes;

similarly, don’t think of passing over the quiet persons
thinking that they are ignorant, but they may be waiting
quietly to face their foe suitably till their chance comes!

அடக்கத்தின் சிறப்பு

அடக்க முடையா ரறிவிலரென் றெண்ணிக்
கடக்கக் கருதவும் வேண்டா - மடைத்தலையில்

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
