Tuesday Thoughts - Good Or Bad

After a sleep inducing training about some tools in Java, which i wonder if anybody working in a development project has so much time to even think about it , I am really in a daze ....
Have some work to start on (atlast - i have work .. hee hee).... Before i go and get a cuppa coffee to wake me up, thought would write some thoughts i had badgering my brain since yesterday night ...
Humans are made of both good and bad ... and the terms "good" and "bad" are highly unstable... what is "good" for one, maybe "bad" for the other ... so everything is a matter of how you look at it ... but in general we do classify some habits of folks as "good" and some as "bad" ... for example , getting angry every second is in general considered a bad habit , and having loads of patience with others is considered a good habit ...
Often i have noticed this happen .... the bad is always remembered and the good gets forgotten easily .... why is it so ? Very few of us are blessed with the nature of forgetting the bad as soon as it happens .... but most often it is this way ... in a day you do all possible good things, but commit one bad thing, yet a crucial one, and the whole taste that remains is of the bad act that you performed ....
Is it to teach us a lesson that we should try to emulate only "good" and remove the "bad" , knowing how it is demeaning us only ? ....

mark antony said, when he came to bury julius caesar.

'Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him;
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interréd with their bones,
So let it be with Caesar…. '

to 'inter' means to bury. antony feels that after caesar's assassination,very few people remember the good things he's done.

One does not have to wait till one dies for one's good to be forgotten... the moment you perform a not liked act, all the good you did is lost.
