Don’t ask for more; don’t be superior to others; be like balm and candle, not a stinging

If you speak with bitterness about someone, you harbor anger, and this anger is hell itself.
When you remember your friends, the garden of your heart blooms with happiness,
filling with roses and basil. If you speak of enemies, thorns and snakes enter the garden of
your heart, and you grow tired and wither.
