Aristotle once said, “Anyone can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way… that is not easy.”
Yes Aristotle said that and he died years ago, like every great man or thinker I have grudges with him as well. These people say such great lines to inspire others and die and we common men have go live with them. We tend to follow these golden words just because they were said by some great man. But our own built castle of hopes, mortality, and and high moral grounds resolves in dust when someone else come and ridicule us and our thoughts.
At that time you get to know that what kind of fool you have been. In real world no one follow such things.
Just take example of anger when one is angry, no matter how stupid the reason behind this anger is, one blasts oneself into taunts and harsh words for other completely forgetting the efforts and good deeds of the others. And give a reality check to the fool’s like me about the reality of moral grounds is nothing because the real thing to be cherished is so called ego. Eva that is supposed to be cheap enough to jump in every stupid issue and cause anger. This ego will not be satisfied unless you completely ridicule those who are younger then you and those who have less power.
High moral grounds have nothing to do in this world it is ego it is anger it is social status and it is ONE OWN SELF that means the most.
Today in the world when we don’t have enough time to do any other thing because we are busy in so busy in cherishing our egos one Chinese proverb sounds completely lame and shallow to me it says, “If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.”
