Post your favorite literary and poetic finds! “Life consists of two days, one for you and one against you. So, when it's for you, don't be proud or reckless, and when it's against you, be patient, for both days are a test for you.” This quotation is verily excellent, and precise in its meaning and principle. You see, sometimes people begin with their lives being “for them,” or “with them:” i.e., being born into a wealthy family of merchants... and then descending into the depths of poverty & penury. There were in the sixties & seventies, extremely wealthy Egyptian singers... at their deathbed and ends, they were bankrupt and were found with no money/or coins in their sacks and pockets! And on the other hand, we've seen those whose lives began “against them,” and were born into the poorest of families... then, all of a sudden they became the wealthiest of the wealthy.
