Seek the less knowing


Show your skills to those having not it.
Then only you will get applause.
Then only could you be proud of your skills

    In a way, so true! For they have different ability than yours...they will admire your craft and talent, the beauty that it holds...
    And also to the one with the same skills, they will appreciate your creativity or criticized you...but it depends on how you will take criticism in your life...be it in destructive or in constructive way? the answer lies in you...
    But when you are showing too much of your skills and achievements that is bragging. And it is a different story...with same skill or not, its kind of annoying- though....

    Great verse with great wisdom it holds, you have said it in so little but means alot...Thanks for sharing...10++++++++++++ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
