How many people we know who have soured their lives, good friendships and relationships, who have ruined all that is sweet and beautiful by explosive tempers, who have destroyed their poise of character, and made bad blood!
It is a question of whether the great majority of people do not ruin their lives and mar their happiness by lack of self-control. Only few people we meet in life are well-balanced and have that exquisite poise which is characteristic of the finished character!
Most times, we don't need to prove any point to anybody, which most times lead to ego and destruction. Only the wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled and purified makes the winds and storms of the soul/life obey him! Let's be wise then!
