Rigid Views

Yutang Lin

Fossilized views turn into pitch-black glasses;
Putting it on cannot see scenes have changed.
Nothing serious right time for peaceful living;
Blindly set up pros and cons to invite fighting.


Some people are enwrapped by fossilized views; they always judge everything according to their dogmatic views, even to the extent of loosing sight of objective reality. To matters and people alike, they would arbitrarily attribute labels. Consequently, they often fall into the trap of disturbing others while suffering for their own insistence and demands. What a shame to see damages that are done by blind stumbling.
