Do things to fail, and Learn

One of my favorite approach is doing things to see what may not work and why- instead of chasing what would work.

It’s like, dismissing the wrong way first, when walking thorough the process- up to certain point- is done and the reason why it won’t work has been grasped. It could be “costly” in terms of effort, time, and hitting the wall might seems like a “loss” or “waste”.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

One should never direct people towards happiness, because happiness too is an idol of the market-place. One should direct them towards mutual affection.

A beast gnawing at its prey can be happy too, but only human beings can feel affection for each other, and this is the highest achievement they can aspire to.

It was an interesting route to hit into “Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn“- as if, you can see what you want to see. Looks like I will have to dig his works more.

You only have power over people so long as you don’t take everything away from them.

Worthy of Humanity

“Allah does not judge because he is angry, he judges because he loves us. Parents are the same, and this why, no matter what you do, they will always judge you with touch of a feather.”

Just read it on a Quora. It struck me wonderfully- because I tend to judge (which is very rare) only the things that I love. For everything else, my stock thoughts are like determining whether “the thing” is worth of “time” and “actions”- if not, I pass and move on.

For what is worth, when you stop judging stuffs, you’ll notice and understand things more deeply.
