iii) A little virtue goes a long way

02 Make a précis of the following passage and suggest a suitable heading:

Whether in public life or in private life, men have toiled throughout ages for the elixir of life. A little wisdom would have shown them its impossibility and its undesirability even if attainable. They wasted their whole lives to get nothing, merely adding little to the accumulated knowledge on the subject many of them without that satisfaction by dying with their secrets. We are men in ordinary life hating each other. If they would only pause a little and each examines himself, he would find that he is no better or no worse than the other man he considers his enemy and they could be better off as friends than as enemies. Wisdom consists is shedding the objectionable parts in one’s attitude and once this has happened there will be harmony and good will. In other words, wisdom is emancipation from the tyranny of narrow minded egotism, pardonable in a child in its helplessness but reprehensible in adults, and in developing impartiality. Is it possible? Yes, it is, and should be. Substitute understanding for hate and it is done. This is not a passive submission, but a passive non-offensive resistance to evil, to achieve maximum effect with minimum effort.
