The Purple Cow

My experiments with truth

Can you please everyone you meet?

Will you never be rejected? 

Will you always be loved for what you are?

Can you satisfy everyone’s expectations on you?

Mahatma Gandhi lucidly explains this impossible task in his autobiography, 

“I should love to satisfy all, if I possibly can; but in trying to satisfy all, I may be able to satisfy none. I have, therefore, arrived at the conclusion that the best course is to satisfy one’s own conscience and leave the world to form its own judgment, favorable or otherwise.”
