78. Two dying wishesA dying father's wish:
"Son, be great like me."
A dying mother's wish:
"Son, be good like me."
The dying son's reply:
"Father, I have tried to please you.
Lo, I have succeeded.
Mother, I have tried to please you.
Alas, I have sadly failed."
Sri Chinmoy, Europe-Blossoms, Agni Press, 1974
