Happy Sunday

One who knows and knows he knows is a wise man, Follow Him
One who knows and knows not he knows is asleep, Awaken him
One who knows not and knows he knows not is a child, Teach him
One who knows not and knows not he knows not is a Fool, Avoid him

—-confucious

 

The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others.
