    Exclamation The Quest For Truth

    The Quest For Truth

    by mazHur

    When the apple dropped over his head
    Newton immediately came to know
    ‘What’ had hit his head,
    ‘When’ it had hit his head,
    ‘Where’ it had hit his head,
    But ‘Who’ had hit him with the apple,
    ‘Why’ had he hit him so;
    These were the questions,
    The source of his imagination,
    His inquisitiveness, his surprise,
    his quest for Reality, his search for Truth
    which finally led to the discovery of
    The Laws of Gravitation!
    When asked how World War III would be fought, Einstein replied that he didn't know. But he knew how World War IV would be fought: With sticks and stones.

    I am amazed to read your poem so beautifully written. Even a theory of science could be made into a beautiful story is exemplified here. You have a chisel and could carve out a beauty out of something. Just a theory of evolution could birth of a poem of this marvel is a matter of wonder. This is art.

    “Those who seek to satisfy the mind of man by hampering it with ceremonies and music and affecting charity and devotion have lost their original nature””

    “If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

    Amazing sketch your poem paints Maz!
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...
