The Confessions Of An Incorrigible Person

I am a religious fanatic, because I do not respect any religion other than my own – Humanism.

I am not cosmopolitan, because I do not respect any community other than my own – Humanity.

I do not like any language other than my own – the language of unity, understanding and friendship.

I give a damn to any culture other than my own – Human Culture.

There is only one civilization I respect, the ancient civilization I am a part of – World Civilization.

I do not have time for anybody other than my own family – The World Fraternity.

Agreed, all these characteristics that I have are extremely condemnable. But sorry, I will not change. I am incorrigible.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
