Shiny chimera

The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.

This world is like a shiny chimera in its entirety, but in part it is only sorrow; bravery of a giant in its entirety and fear of a mouse in part; undefeatable progress of life in its entirety and hopeless death in part.

All this shiny chimera can`t satiate any eye or ear and even less it can satiate the thirst of the physical desires.

The least of all it can satiate the spiritual thirst. As a water drop falls on the burnt tongue of the thirsty traveler and doesn`t appease him, this entire cosmos – a hot drop – falls on the thirsty soul of the man and doesn`t appease him but makes him much thirstier increasing his thirst till madness.

The world indeed is made only to arouse thirst in the man but no to appease it.
