Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa: The tree laden with fruits always bends low. If you wish to be great, be lowly and meek.

To conquer, you must stoop low,

bring your head down from the clouds to the humans below,

only humans can lift you and give you wings

and not extraterrestrial beings;


So, oh you talented one with special gifts,

be lowly and meek

come down from the high horse,

come down and the enjoy the love

of those who can reward you

they’re waiting patiently for you.
