(And surely manipulation means change brought onto oneself and not on the circumstances.)
Great people: Noble ideas and fanciful rhetoric make us ordinary people. Plain action makes great people.
Crime: One commits, it is a crime. Many collude to commit it; it is a terrible crime. Most of us commit it and it is a practice.
Religion: Virtuous people's deeds are their religion. God-appeasing worshipers are the great hypocrites of our time; they are not religious people. The religion in practice today has been the monopoly of most contemptible and irreligious people. The violent people are their offshoots who even fail to comprehend what religion really is; yet create havoc in the name of religion.
Treasure: Genius recognize the treasure when it is at hand. Great people do so once it has dropped and then pick it up back. Most of us discover the treasure after it has disappeared altogether after falling from our hands.
Sympathy: Lending sympathy to a mourning person is like jerking hard an asleep person just to tell: "Oh, you are asleep! sleep, sleep."; reminding of something he/she would like to forget.
Loneliness: Ages back, people used to seek company at crowds. Now they venture to deserted places to evade the loneliness of crowd.
