It is said that writers are not normally graced by Wealth. " Those who are high up in society are intellectually poor and generally vulgar" declared Schopenhauer.
That may be true. Keats cried in agony
I fall upon the thorns of life
I bleed !
A writer may not be graced by Fortune. But Writing has its positive aspect. Look at Dante, who was a mendicant !
A mendicant, he ate the bitter bread of others
But repaid the meagre gifts
With immortality !
So with writing he repaid the meagre gifts with immortality !
It is said that the pen is mightier than the sword ! Did not Marx, Jesus, Aurobindo turn the course of history with their writings ?
Does not every language quote their poets ?
A writer writes his thoughts. On the Net he writes in blogs & sites. His ideas are passed on to posterity. By imparting his ideas to posterity, he becomes immortal !
So, take up the pen, write and become immortal !
