I have three teachers:  

My soul, my heart and my mind.  

My soul-teacher tells me  

That it is not a difficult task  

To love God.  

My heart-teacher tells me  

That it is not a difficult task  

To love mankind.  

My mind-teacher tells me  

That it is absolutely  

The most difficult task  

To love myself.
