A smart man knows his surroundings
a wise man knows himself,
a stupid man knows nothing
and is the happier for that.
A braveheart gives his life to win a war,
a coward loses a war to save his life,
a man with no loyalty never wins a war,
because he wastes his time not losing.
A moral man doesn’t do what he shouldn’t,
an ethical man does what he should,
a soulless man follows his heart,
accomodating morality and ethics to his taste.
A selfish man hurts others for his gain,
a selfless man hurts himself to help others,
a man with no self hurts himself
and others around him.
A loving man always finds excuses to keep going,
a loveless man always finds excuses to desist,
a cheater can’t find an excuse to desist,
so he keeps going lovelessly.
