the three wise monkeys

the three wise monkeys

I’m sure you would have seen the three wise monkeys and read the proverbial principle that they represent:

See no evil.

Hear no evil.

Speak no evil. 

What this maxim also means is:

See only good. Hear only good. Speak only good.

A tough, if not impossible, challenge for all of us humans for sure. But something worth pursuing to live a simple, positive, and peaceful life.

Those three wise monkeys definitely knew how to protect themselves from negativity in order to keep the virtuousness within them alive and kicking. The question is: Can we strive to be as wise and disciplined as those three monkeys?
