Understand the river and you will understand a Person!!!

I was having my dinner and suddenly i heard a whistle which is "OUR Signal" to call each other.
I finished my dinner and came to the parking area of my house.

Many time we do this, after dinner just have a talk for 15 to 20 minutes. These 15 minutes talk are really diversified talk. It cover topics ranging from Film Stars to Social Worker.

I hope you understand the range !!!

While our yesterday's discussion he suddenly said these magical and beautiful line "Understand the river and you will understand a Person!!!"

And I started imagining a river....
I just googled on the Internet and found the following definition

"A river is a natural stream of fresh water larger than a brook or creek. A river flows toward another river, an ocean, a lake, or other large body of water. "

There are huge similarities between the river and the human personalities. If we look at the life cycle of the river and the life cycle of the human being I think its almost same.

River is really small and weak when it is born. Gradually it increases its age, length and power and finally it meets to some other river, an ocean, a lake, or other large body of water.

Isn't its same with the human being who is weakest when he born, and he becomes powerful over the period of time and then he gets the salvation into some other world.
At his early or later stage is become influencer or he gets influenced by some other Human River.

As per the river, human personalities have different shades of moods. Some times they are caring, peaceful, on the other hand they become restless, hostile and aggressive willing to destroy everything.

We keep wondering that is the same person who was so caring.

I believe if start analyzing the human rivers, we will come to know why its important. The deepness of river can be match with the wisdom of the man. There are lots of characteristics of river can be matched with the human personalities. I expect it from my readers .Many times we made a perception about the persons same like these signs and we forgot that its just a perception. These signs are helpful till some extent but these can not become the standard.
Following are some of the River Quotes or you can say it as :
