- A 400 years old English proverb says : "HASTE makes WASTE, and waste makes WANT, and want makes STRIFE between the good man and his WIFE. About the wife, the English poet, Robert Herrick, had clearly said : THE ONLY COMFORT OF MY LIFE---IS THAT I NEVER YET HAD WIFE. This is a real mercy of the God to a selected individual. In the book "Complete History of England" ( Vol. 2, Page 502, published in 1570 ) it is written : "God is better pleased with adverbs than with nouns". Corroborating the same, 37 years later, Bishop Joseph Hall ( 1607 ), had said : "God really loves adverbs but cares not how good but how well". If you want to understand God, just try to learn how Vitamin D ( actually Vitamin D3 ) is formed in your body when you sit under the sunlight and expose to the sun your body's biggest gland--the Skin. Darker your skin is greater the time you have to give to the sun to allow its rays to penetrate into your body. No haste will serve the purpose. The sunscreen industry is making millions by fooling you by saying ; "protect yourself from from the U.V. rays of the sun otherwise you are destined to face cancer". This saying is not only the biggest nonsense, but a fraudulent tactic to sell sunscreen lotions to the gullible people. So enjoy the sun, and live longer. David Garrick had rightly said : LET OTHERS HAIL THE RISING SUN---I BOW TO THAT WHOSE COURSE IS UN.
