Dr John Celes (14-2-1957 / Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India)
Life is for giving, not taking;
Life is for making, not faking;
Life is for sharing, not stacking;
Life is to see our brethren, smile and laugh.
Life is for setting an example glowing, not pretending;
Life is for interpreting rightly, not in misinterpreting;
Life is for helping others, not asking for aid;
Life is to bring cheer onto the poor and common man’s face!
Life is for doing good, not expecting;
Life is for emulating, not acting;
Life is for leading, not misleading;
Life is to make the world, a better place for all to live!
