I just smiled at myself when I read this quote by Helen Keller, the great:
“Toleration is the greatest gift of the mind; it requires the same effort of the brain that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.”
I have never ridden a bicycle in my entire life so it is definitely a difficult task for me but those who know it & do it regularly for them, I guess it is an easy thing to do.
Helen Keller must have practiced tolerance so much that it seemed to her like bicycle riding.
Yes, we need to practice tolerance daily to make it a habit in our life.
“The highest result of education is tolerance.”
So true it is, but I am sure education doesn’t mean degrees here. Its the learning of life’s values where education has a greater role to play.
“LIFE IS EITHER A GREAT ADVENTURE OR NOTHING” – Helen Keller
We have reached almost at the end of the week dealing with our topic “Routine and Adventure” a day before Saturday.
Today, I was kind of feeling dull of the routine of writing a snippet for our usual time at 7PM, but a quotation struck me hard. The quote was by the great Helen Keller which reads, “Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” I got my snippet idea and I sat down to type.
A question came to my mind, when do we take risk or get ready for an adventure… When we have something very important or valuable to do we take risk or try to adventure into something unusual or special. When we have a life purpose, when we have a vision and mission for a great cause, when we are passionate about something that drives us and our life, we set out for adventure. Because without a purpose, a vision, a mission life is worthless and it is nothing but just void, empty.
The Bible says, “We are fearfully and wonderfully made.” Our birth is a super wonderful work of our God, the Creator. Can we be dull and purposeless? Or we will be super creative, adventurous, purposeful and great visionaries?
Keep thinking, Good night!
