Man is a mixture of opposites

2017-02-22 06:03

THERE is without doubt no one more wonderful, delicate and sensitive among the created beings than man. At the same time he is the biggest mixture of opposites, he is weak, yet an adorer of strength. He is poor yet crazy after wealth. He is a mortal yet a seeker of eternity. He has a hundred ills and ailments and yet he is in the quest of health and happiness.

He is faint hearted as well as ambitious. His needs are endless and his desires are limitless. His feelings and emotions are from moment to moment. His thirst is unquenchable. He does not rest and is never contented.

What he has holds no charm for him while what he does not have always beckons him, drawing him to itself. He is drawn irresistible towards beauty and perfection. He is ready to sacrifice everything, life, liberty and happiness for the sake of the beloved.

Man is the masterpiece of creation having no equal in this world in respect of his mental qualities and potential powers, he is made of an entirely different fibre. He carries with him surprisingly complicated and delicate personal and social problems.

These problems can find no solution worth the name in animal and jungle life. He is a moral being entrusted with manifold high responsibilities. Each man and woman has got a noble mission to fulfil, however, small or humble it may individually look. Unlike other inferior creatures, he is to be rewarded or punished for his thoughts and actions.
