Beware of spectators:

They are the best initiators

The best motivators

The best educators

The best supervisors

They are the best directors

The best orators

The best ministers

The best governors

The best senators

The best ambassadors

The best prosecutors

The best advisors

The best doctors

The best jailors

The best tailors

The best pastors

The best ushers

The best singers

The best dancers

The best players

The best hailers

The best lawyers…

Until they become participators.



They become accusers

They become abusers

They become traducers

They become reducers

They become defenders

They become wailers

They become liars

They become swindlers

They become slanderers

They become stammerers

They become persecutors

The best truncators

Vicarious murderers and –

The worst performers…


And then,

Worst of all,

They blame their predecessors

And everyone else but themselves

For all their failures!
