dariush_statueGod willing, I am such who do like the truth and abstain the lie. I dislike that a weak person suffers from unjust. As well I dislike that the powerful person’s rights would be harmed by a weak person’s acts. I do like whatever is right. I am not a friend of a liar. I am not a furious person. Even the anger provokes me I suppress it. I am severely the sovereign of my caprice.
