The pabulum of our thought is ignorance. Therefore we are submissive to the strong and imperious to the weak. But the food of our will is knowledge. So it is submissive to the weak and imperious to the strong. The deathless bird that dwells in our heart whispers that all of us are far from the truth. We shall deserve true appreciation only when we consider the strong and the weak to be as important as ourselves. Not only that, the spotless truth must be deeply rooted in us that the strong, the weak and we are inseparable.
Chinmoy, Chandelier, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, 1959
