Wealth of a Nation
In and Out
Why do the people have two ears? One to hear and the other to discard the heard.

Beauty
When we see the Earth from the sky, the Earth is beautiful. When we see the sky from the Earth, the sky is beautiful.

Permission
The abundance of words is not license to lie.

Strong vision
Some people have such a strong vision that they even see crocodiles in washbasins.

Running for life
There is a saying in Sinhala that goes ‘pana beraganna duwanawa’ which would translate as ‘running for dear life’. You can see many who run for their lives at places like Independence Square and Viharamahadevi Park every evening.

Liberation for invasion
Western powers no longer invade countries; they just liberate them. Looks like their politics match their technology when it comes to sophistry.

Training and education
There may be trained dogs, but we are yet to hear of educated dogs.

Machan
‘Hama friendama vadagath machan mobile eke salli thiyenkan’. Every friend is important until you run out of credit on your mobile.

Most genuine problem
Problems mostly are genuine, but we cannot say the same about the persons who speak about them. Maybe the most genuine problem today is the lack of genuine people.

Development
There was a time when everyone dreamed of socialism. Today, all dreams are about development. I am not sure whether or not this is a development.

What is right?
Some think that left is always right. Some think that right is always right. Some think that the middle path is always right. All these people are innocent; do not fear them. Beware, however, of the one who thinks that might is right.

Constructing relationships
Try to be creative even in speaking because speaking is not telling some words and ideas but is a way of constructing human relationships.

Lifetime
Animals in a zoo have longer lifetimes and less life than wild animals.

Butterfly
No clothe can make a butterfly more beautiful.
By Andare Smith (grandson of Adam Smith)
