You don’t always need small to measure big or vice versa. But it’s the human psychology we need tiny substance to measure the greatness of things; similarly we need huge substance to scale the tininess of a substance. We need beauty to measure the ugliness and perfection to measure imperfection. But we need something to measure – a scale.
Everything has a price and so does freedom. A bird soaring freely up in the sky seems an easy act but it has to stick to courage and balance to keep scaling the vastness of the blue sky. Similarly we each are with individual identities and in order to keep our identities unique we need courage to survive and balance to act in difficult times.
A duck needs water to swim not too much, not too less – just enough to immerse and float itself in it. Human life could be a lot simpler and easier if we could live with not too much or too less – but enough to live happily and contented.
