The circle called life

When thinking expands, the thought grows
When thoughts grow, the talk shrinks
When you talk lesser, your action excels
When actions excel, fame increases
When fame increases, you accumulate wealth
When wealth accumulates, happiness brims you
When you are happier, life blossoms
When life blossoms, pride ascends
When pride ascends, you talk more
When you talk more, your act shrinks
When you act lesser, fame decreases
When fame decreases, wealth reduces
When wealth reduces, life gets dull
When life gets duller, the thought grows

and yet again,

When your thoughts grow...

The other day, I was wondering... what would I do without such quotes!
Here's for the New Year!!

Circles- yes circles have a spl place in Hinduism, everything is a continuous circle, lives, karma, what not, even life of our universe according to hindu cosmology is just a circular cycle.
