ONE OF THE FEW

One of the Few, not one of the Many

It is much easier to become One of the Many than it is to become One of the Few.

Most therefore, witting or unwitting, become One of the Many.

One of the Few requires supreme  effort, constant failure and disappointment.

One of the Few is to become empathetic.

One of the Few is to find humility.

One of the Few is to be resolute in the face of defeat.

One of the Few is to persist even when hope is gone.

One of the Few is to perceive all things as possible.

One of the Few accepts and moves on.

One of the Many take paths of least resistance.

One of the Many seek entitlement.

One of the Many seek revenge.

One of the Many use righteousness as shield and weapon.

One of the Many harbour schemes and plots.

One of the Many seek self gratification over gratification of other lives.

One of the Few strive for betterment of others.

One of the Few forgive.

One of the Few love.

One of the Many hate.

One of the Many find fault in others.

One of the Few heal.

One of the Few help.

One of the Few not one of the Many.
