THE BOOK OF LIFE

Mugsy

Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Artist's Description

Man has conquered space, gone to the depths of the ocean, found cures for diseases, but still we have not learned how to respect mankind.
We have acquired knowledge, skills, expertise, but still have not leaned the true meaning of understanding.
We have acquired wealth, but still have not learned how to share.
We have achieved great things, but still have not learned to be compassionate.
We give in order to get, instead of giving because we care.
We turn a blind eye to injustice, when we should be standing up for what is right.
We dwell on the past instead of looking to the future, which is something that we can change.
We blame today’s generation for what happened in the past, instead of uniting to make things better for all.
We incite instead of exciting.
We blame others for our own inability to do better, be better.
It is often better to walk away than to fight.
There are no excuses when the playing fields of life are level.
I remember getting angry at a wedding when the minister said to the bridal couple that marriage meant sacrificing….. if marriage meant you have to sacrifice….. why get married?
Of all the credo’s, verses, sayings, quotes, one should stand out……………. ‘Respect others’.

It’s as easy as that……………………………….
