The first chapter was enjoyed by readers known and unknown.
In the first chapter some points regarding, grief, trouble and sorrow were seen.
This subject caught the mind and hearts of the readers.
It dealt with how to treat them when we get afflicted by them.
A Kural was quoted which means:
- ‘They will torment the torment, those who don’t get tormented by torment.
- ‘ They give sorrow to sorrow, who in sorrow do not suffer.
On this context I came across the quote posted by my relative Mr.Muthusubramanian, some months back in Facebook which I like to share here.
‘ We can’t stop troubles from coming towards us, but we can make sure we do not offer them chairs to sit on.”
More quotes to ponder on the same concept.
Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day. – Jesus Christ
This is the mark of a really admirable man: steadfastness in the face of trouble. – Ludwig van Beethoven
I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.– Thomas Paine
I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace. – Thomas Paine
All the quotes point out almost the same meaning.
Another point that caught attention was, ‘ Faith in God on one side and real hard work on the other side.. When they join together obstacles get removed and replaced by happiness.
Success in any endeavour is not possible just by sitting, doing nothing. God helps those who help themselves. By having faith in God your tasks will become easier to handle.
That’s all readers for now.. until we meet again soon with the second chapter which is titled Prayers or Prarthana….
