Writer’s Addendum

Have you ever met someone who thinks he knows so much about something that he has never seen in person? (especially Heaven, Hell, Damnation and the Devil) Well, Mr Know-it-all doesn’t know everything.

Unblessed are the people who think they know much more than they really do. The next time you meet such a person, quote him Confucius: If you don’t know about life, how can you know about death?

Be a little more humble, we don’t know many many things in life. And we shouldn’t be ashamed to admit it!

Worse, its the greatest sin to mislead younger generations.
