413. To please God, to please manTo please God
I offer my life's little lamp.
And God is unreservedly satisfied.
To please man
I offer my soul's vast sun.
Yet man is unquestionably dissatisfied.
Who can please God?
Whoever wants to.
Who can please man?
No one, not even God.
Sri Chinmoy, The Wings of Light, part 9, Agni Press, 1974
