I can’t claim any originality for these simple yet very wise words. And strangely enough, they’re a work of fiction; they belong to Aba, a character from one of my favourite books as a teenager – The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith. (In fact, I just bought a new copy of the one two years ago from Landmark – it’s a pity the basement store at Palladium Mall shut down.) So yeah, coming which to ponder upon, this is one proverbial saying I have come to always stand by with (I illustrated this maxim so that I can get it printed in the form of a little karma card for my wallet).
