An Ethereal Flower
“Great people will always be mocked by those who
feel smaller than them. A lion does not flinch at laughter
coming from a hyena. A gorilla does not budge from a
banana thrown at it by a monkey.
A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song at
the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker. Whenever you
should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.
Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,
it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its
growth or beauty.”
