Well, if I could understand what you were talking about might agree with you. But lets say for the sake of dialogue that I do understand you. If it is your thought that the life is what we make of it I will say you are correct. We are the only ones who are living our lives. Nobody else can live our lives for us to be sure.

There is a saying amongst my folk: "In the morning when you rise greet your neighbor with a good word and good will come of it". As a child I took these words to heart and I have lived by them ever since. I see no reason to change my thinking in this matter. If all men could understand the life as my folk do I think there would be no wars in our world. My folk have always been seekers of wisdom and not seekers of power. It is our thought that while there may be power in wisdom there is no wisdom in power for power without the restraint of wisdom is like a fire that has escaped the confines of the hearth. It will burn the house down.
