If you are a drop of water, have you moistened the earth?
If you are a ray of sunshine, have you lit up the darkness?
If you are a single grain, have you nurtured the human being?
If you are the smallest screw, will you always stay where you are?
If you want to indoctrinate, are you preaching day and night?
Since you are alive, have you tried your best to make the world a better place for your descendants?
May I ask you that, what do you bring to the world?
For life, we should not only demand.
