Conquer yourself first then the unkindness of others wont conquer you
Many lessons my boyhood best friend and mentor Jaybird taught me seemed foolish at the time, but along with me they matured, and now serve as guideposts in my life. One of those lessons was about kindness.
Jaybird believed that no act of kindness, however small, is wasted. Even so, the old black man sometimes displayed a less-than-kindly nature when the actions of others angered him, but if I was close by he did his best to respond in a civil manner.
Age old wisdom
good life experience is a long Journey to conquer oneself
A good marriage helps immensely and you then have a true mirror
