Slouching, frowning and not smiling enough are the habits that made me not to pull through with full light on me. They looked into my eyes but they couldn't see a drop of tear falling and they couldn't search in my heart because my life was full of shy,avoiding strangers and always making the first poor impression when I came cross different people of life. Without knowing that the real man is made or unmade by himself, in the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself, and real men who can easily get out of the rat race also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself. Oh because not every obstacles is a stepping stone or a stumbling block in our lives, the difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter because it is like mixing better butter with bitter butter as bitter butter will turn better butter bitter, for all of that it is by the right choice and true application by the abuse and wrong application of thought; he descends below the level of the beast, and moreover, between these two extreme all are the grades of character, and man is their maker and master. It is like a running cheetah trying to race with a snail in the race so are we some of us we find it difficult to reason and to do right. Thinking beating or winning a race is all about who we compete with but that's not the case, because the most glorious moment in your life are not the so called days of success, but rather those days, when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life and the promise of future accomplishments and always know that wisely and slow, they stumble that run fast.
