If a mirror is dirty, no one likes it. On the other, when our air is polluted by dirty air with particles from somewhere, we all close our eyes not wanting the air—dirt’s to harm our eyes; if the air smells foul, we close our nose. Another point is, when water is not clear and pure to bath with, it becomes a problem talk less of drinking. The lesson is simply short, as we clean our rooms and bodies all the time and want the air and the atmosphere and even our water we drink to be clear, lets please clear our lives and character and be spotless. This is the greatest secret of living better and happier.

This will often make the partner too to think of what she can also give; and prosper the relationship. The lesson is, our nations can prosper and be great if we give immensely to them. If we do not give to them, and only take from them, they will become impoverish, and become poor.
