Human life is often likened to a Rose Garden. It makes perfect sense to me. As we walk through the garden, we are always refreshed and rejuvenated by the breeze that carries amazingly capturing exquisite fragrance of beautiful flowers all around. Life seems so wonderful at that very moment. And on some occasions, a sight of dried plants, with dry petals lying around, plucked dead flowers and heaps of dead leaves all around sadden us a lot. A cold brutal breeze makes us shiver with the shocking dark reality check. Life can be so amazing and beautiful, and yet can be so cold and cruel sometimes....just like a Rose Garden.

If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?
