The Meaning of the Word Alliance
"The rain drop from the sky, if it is caught in hands it is pure enough for drinking. If it falls in the gutter, it's value drops so much that it can't be used for washing feet. If it falls on hot surface, it perishes. If it falls on a lotus leaf, it shines like a pearl. Finally, if it falls on an oyster, it becomes a pearl.
The drop is the same, but it's existence and worth depends on with whom it associates."
