People who have important positions are taxed heavily. Their responsibilities take away from their health and peace. Very few people remain unaffected and unharmed from the stresses that are related to having strenuous and demanding jobs.
“Don’t seek to be prince (leader or governor).”
Imagine that the world came to you with everything. Where will it all go in the end? Without a doubt, all of it will perish.
A wise man warned his son:
“Do not seek to be the head, for the head is constantly aching.”
In other words, do not always aspire to be the leader or the one in charge. Bitter criticisms, curses, and tough problems are the lot of the leader.
A poet justly said:
“Half of the people are enemies of the governor, so very few, only if he is just.”
