The Role Of Instincts


Victory is sweet; sweeter is revenge.
Relief is sweet; sweeter is escape.
Gain is sweet; sweeter is lottery.
Sex is sweet; sweeter is adultery.

Liberty scores over freedom.
Selfishness scores over justice.
Jealousy scores over affection.
Bribery scores over honesty.

Instincts disobey conscience
Whenever it finds convenience.
