If I have to choose just one quote to live by, that will be:
Live and let live. – Unknown
I wish I know who to quote on this one but I just don’t know who was the first to come up with this very inspiring line – “Live and let live!” It talks about freedom and tolerance.
There are so many standards to follow – religions, tradition and lifestyle, to pattern how we can live our lives. Which one to follow should be our own choice, and not just because we are complying.
There are so many hindrances to living – those that makes life difficult, like problems, depression, heartache, frustration, among others. To get them by is to just live, to just continue living each day and realize that whatever prevents us from enjoying life will soon pass. If it doesn’t, by then, we have already learned to live with it.
And if we are the freedom to live our own lives, then we should let others have their own lives as well and let them be no matter how diversed they are. Tolerance! I think the greatest sin is to kill and to steal , which is the opposite of to let live . And I’m not just talking about killing and stealing as the taking of lives or the taking of material things, but also the killing of the ones spirit or the stealing of ones dreams with the malicious intent or the consequence of preventing others to live the lives they want.
This is my first participation to Sunday Citar. I had been following Fresh Mommy for along time now for it’s Sunday Citar, 30 Days Series, and the wonderful photographs of her and her family.
