A few friends of mine and I were having a rough go of it. Love, work, friends and family — circumstances — all these and more seemed to be making every effort to diminish us.
Do not become one to ease his burden.
When your brilliance blinds those in darkness,
Do not dim the light to protect their eyes.
When your love falls flat on the loveless,
Do not restrain it to ease their emptiness.
The truly wise do not fear
The shining example of another’s love,
Nor do they fear to bestow it.
