All is Well that Ends Well… The title of a play by William Shakespeare.
As the month of January closes in on us, this thought comes to mind.
Anything with a beginning, must have an end. Whenever we start something, a door of endless possibilities is opened. This door opens up opportunities, which buds and blossoms as off shoots of that seemingly simple event. Lives are birth and growth begins.
In one of the oldest texts known to mankind, the writer penned these beautiful words;
And though your beginning was small, your latter days will be very great.
The end of a matter is supremely important. We see countless examples from history of people, projects, ideas, ventures that started well, but sadly didn’t end well. So what does it mean to end well?
Well, that my friends is a matter for individual interpretation. For each person will have to give an account for their time and talents.
So, in the words of Socrates;
I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.
