Chanakya Neeti 18
Starkest poverty looks beautiful if the person is calm, cheapest dress looks beautiful if it is clean, ugliest man looks lovely if his heart is pure.
I fully agree with him, again, poverty is from inside the heart, soul, sages lived on daily begging, wore tree barks, often were skinny and full of unkempt beard and long hair yet they were far more beautiful, pure than thugs and robbers.
Chanakya was the mentor, guide and prime minister of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya. His words were very wise when it came to explaining human nature and ways of actual world.
As I am too engrossed with my twins (agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com and agnijaat.wordpress.com- check them out guys, my twin Ezines Agnishatdal and Agnijaat) I will use him as my own and your teacher for at least a couple of months. Hope you will benefit too!
