I am a human being.
I will fail, but I am not a failure.
There is good and bad in this world.
I will do bad things, but I am not bad.
There are right and wrong answers.
I will give wrong answers, but I am not wrong.
I am a collection of ideas, impressions and experiences.
I act upon this collection.
Every creature is a different collection.
We act differently. It’s okay.
My failure may be your success.
My bad deed may be your good deed.
My wrong answer may be your right answer.
It’s okay. We’re different.
I am only responsible for one human being — me.
I know only one collection — my own.
Who I am depends on me!
