Sacred Lotus

“Seeing the mud around a lotus is pessimism, seeing a lotus in the mud is optimism.”
Amit Kalantri (

Sacred Lotus Flower

“Great people will always be mocked by those who feel smaller than them. A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena.

A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey.

A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song at the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker.

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.

Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.”

Suzy Kassem (

Thank you.
