Thought for the Day

Epictetus was a great philosopher. In the beginning he was a slave, but later his master released him. Once his Master gave him a very bitter cucumber, and he was eating it quietly. The Master asked, "Is it not bitter?" He said, "Yes". Then the Master said, "But you are not making any faces or noise?" He replied, "Master, you have given me such sweet things in the past, and I ate them quietly. Now once you have given me a bitter thing, should I make a lot of noise?" - PP Swamiji
