Words of Wisdom – Good deed concept by Shakespeare

Good deed

The magic of a quote lies in that everyone can interpret it their own way. A Good deed and its interpretation may provide the opportunity to reflect, to find inspiration, or to be moved by the beauty of the message or by its depth.

Meditate on these words of wisdom

First of all the writer, William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616) enlightened his contemporaries with this sentence, which is more relevant than ever today:

How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.

What you should understand and keep in mind

Every one of us tells themselves: “some things are not right in the world, but what can I do about it?”

Shakespeare’s quote gives the answer to this question. A good deed may become infectious and, as a result, the small candle may quickly turn into a considerable blaze illuminating the whole world.

This was wonderfully demonstrated by great sages such as Gandhi when he managed to convince his compatriots to put a halt to the religious clashes that were causing bloodshed in his country – simply by fasting for 5 days…

Just like Shakespeare, Gandhi would certainly have agreed with the writer named Joseph Thomas who wrote this other nice maxim: “true happiness is not to be found in wealth or honors, but in the brave performance of one’s duties and good deeds.”

Good deed concept not that hard to do

I too invite you to perform good deeds because they will be the stones on which you build the temple of your joy and serenity.
