A brick thrown into the well
canŐt be brought again in dry form
no matter if the well is dry.
This is to say that a man canŐt escape
from being damp while living in
Allegations, losses, defamatory
insults, honor killings, and ingratitude
spontaneously fall in everyoneŐs
lap against his wishes,
though he is living aloof, not a
participant or party to the issues.
After being cheated by someone,
to escape oneself in future, to keep
a steady mind with past issuesŐ awareness
and to forget losses by learning
a good lesson for the future is chivalrous,
as experience is the best school
but its fees are heavy.
No one teaches by holding things at
arm's length in this world.
