5 January 2013

Sardonic Saturdays - where every silver lining has a cloud.
Today's Quota is very short, and can be sweet or sour, depending on your mood at the moment.

We all know who Mohandas Gandhi is, right?
Right before his assassination, he presented his grandson with a slip of paper.
On it, he wrote the 'seven blunders of the world'; probably one of his most famous pieces.

These are the Seven Blunders of the World;

  1. Wealth without work
  2. Pleasure without conscience
  3. Knowledge without character
  4. Commerce without morality
  5. Science without humanity
  6. Worship without sacrifice
  7. Politics without principle

Wise words to live by, laying out the hypocritical nature of Man.
We tend to be superficial in our gains, never stopping to consolidate our position or reflect on ourselves.
Be mindful of these plunders in everything you do, lest you fall victim to your own inherent nature.

Today's Quota (which has already been divulged) is this quote. These blunders.
Below is the Wikipedia page, complete with a more extensive background on the final 'blunder'.
