বুড়ো হওয়ার সহজ টোটকা



Make your interests gradually wider and more impersonal, until bit by bit the walls of the ego recede, and your life becomes increasingly merged in the universal life. An individual human existence should be like a river — small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past rocks and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being.
                                                                                                  
                                                                                                     ---Bertrand Russell


কৃতজ্ঞতা স্বীকার

    1. সে তো বটেই, সুস্মিতা। আসলে উল্টোটাই ঘটে। যত বুড়ো হই তত গোঁড়ামি আর সংকীর্ণতা বাড়ে।

  3. what a beautiful thought, thank you for sharing :) Hard to put into practice but one must strive towards it. I have a feeling we sleepwalk through life these days, so coming across such thoughts sometimes may jerk a reaction from us -- atleast that's the hope
