Kindness or goodness doesn't cost anything to anyone. So, never become weary in doing good and showing kindness to your fellow humans. It doesn't matter how long you've been doing good. Just continue and never quit. Even though you may not be appreciated sometimes. But, never mind. For, someday, you will be appreciated and celebrated all the same. Besides, you should be kind or good to whoever you meet on your way up. Because, you may meet that very person on your way down. Oh! yes, the reverse could be the case.

To stumble over and vex you... curse that stool! Or else at best, a cushion, where you lean and sleep, and dream of something we are not, but would be for your sake. Alas, alas! This hurts most, this... that, after all, we are paid the worth of our work, perhaps.
