മൂത്തവര്‍ ചൊല്ലും മുതുനെല്ലിക്കകള്‍- Expectations

This time the search key word was expectations, and this is what I found:

'Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed' was the ninth beatitude. Alexander Pope

'Expecting the world to treat you fairly
because you are a good person 
is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you 
because you are a vegetarian.' ~ Dennis Wholey

'To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves--there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.' ~ Joan Didien
