Philosophical Musings - Part XIII

The Roots of Wisdom

Character defects are all too common these days. It would be meaningful to contemplate on the following verses by Hong Yingming and reflect on these common character flaws.

On Character Defects

When hungry
They stick to you

When full
They fly away like the wind

If there is wealth
They trot right over

Where there is poverty
They abandon

These are the common defects
Of human character



If you are pretty or handsome
They treat you better


Dear Ah Keong,

Unfortunately beauty doesn't last very long. That's why actors or models have to make full use of their looks whilst they still have it.
