Affluence brings a great influence on the person itself as well as on the onlookers. However, when it is in limit, it is boon for you as well as for others. But, when exceeded beyond limits; it becomes curse for both the parties. At the times of prosperity, we often start misusing the things. This gives rise to our inner devil. However, the worst part is that we didn't even realize what suffering we are afflicting on others. Always remember, luxury attained by causing trouble or distress to others, can't be cherished for a longer period of time.

I find it a little ludicrous to take seriously the notion that if the majority is attained on first ballot, then the automatic delegates will get a chance to vote for something that will be truly meaningless, if you take the vote away from members of the DNC, state chairs and vice chairs and other members, you will find that the quality of the DNC members and the state chairs and vice chairs over a period of time will decrease because there won't be as much value in spending time with the party on behalf of the party.

For the past 26 years there have been times when Bob and I have felt compassion for Roderick Nunley, Taylor and their families only to remember how frightened Ann must have been, the total fear she felt when she was bound and unable to defend herself while listening to them discuss how they were going to kill her. The pain she felt when they stabbed her, not once, but at least 10 times. That is the true definition of unusual pain and suffering. The only closure that our family will have is knowing that justice for Ann has been attained and that we are finally through with the judicial system.

The strength and weakness of reason is that it imposes a uniform way of thinking and understanding. Hence its usefulness is immediate to society but not to that extent to the individuals in the same society; again the reason evolves all the time. The very evolution happened at differing geographical isolations made individuals with different levels of mental capacity; the uniform force of reason of society threatens individual minds that are not fully evolved to grasp the reason; such minds are weak and only attained a capacity to create questions without an ability to generate answers; having created the questions they are ready to receive any kind of answers instead of handling the reason. The reason is a day to day struggle for them while the religion has been made available as a readymade answer for any circumstances. Hence at the level of society the reason wins but at the individual level of practice the reason often fails and that makes religion to win.

I fully agree with the famous quote by Sir Isaac Newton, one of the genius scientists and a great philosopher: “I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” In my view, this quote and underlying thought process are the best examples of humility and modesty as much as the self-realization attained by a brilliant mind. When we think about our accomplishments, no matter how huge those are in quantity or how outstanding in quality, we realize and appreciate that the great ocean of truth still lays all undiscovered, yet awaiting millions and trillions of seekers like us, who are yet to arrive in next generations. Newton's thoughtful quote, that honest truth, certainly brings us back to reality, and down to earth, lest we forget.
