Never Do As Others Do

6planetearth

When my grandmother – may she attain the Kingdom of Heaven – was dying, my mother, as was then the custom, took me to her bedside and, as I kissed her right hand, my dear grandmother placed her dying left hand on my head and said in a whisper, yet very distinctly: ‘Eldest of my grandsons! Listen and always remember my strict injunction to you: In life never do as others do.’
