Values of life

Book Summary   by:Gurpreet Singh     Original Author: Gurpreet Singh
ª
 
Values of life The Value of our life, both to ourselves and to others, is to be judged not by the number of years we live but by the number of great, good and noble deeds we do in this world. Life does not mean breathing, eating or just existing because even animals breathe and eat. It means living in this world with sense of contribution. Life means action, more action, still more action in the service of mankind. A lily of a day leaves behind a noble record of joy and beauty. On the other hand, an oak tree lasts for three hundred years but at last it falls down, bald and dry. A man of deeds commands universal homage. A short life full of noble deeds is much better than a long existence without any act or real value. So it does not matter for how many years a person lives. What matters is how many noble and heroic deeds he has done. We can find true perfection even in small things provided they are noble and good. One should do such deeds, which show his personality not only during his life but also after his death. There were so many persons in the world, which are not recognized from their picture but from their deeds. In the end, my advice is that the person should do such actions, which differentiate him from animals. The God has given wisdom to the man to assess the bad and good so one should use this quality towards the mankind.
