Be Soft

Be soft.
Do not let the world make you hard.
Do not let pain make you hate.
Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree,
you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
--Kurt Vonnegut.

Thank you to liveonearth

I'm already hardened. I would like to believe the rest to be true.

The Bhagavad Gita says: The unreal never is; the Real never is not. I take this to mean that reality does not depend on my perception of it or on anything material. So the world might be a beautiful place though others may disagree, though i may disagree.

Hard has several meanings, just as soft does. Being soft, i shouldn't weep all the time. Being hard, i should weep more often than i do.
