No justice nor fairness in spoken sentences.
Judged for given freedom of speech.
Glared for flaunting of assets.
Envied for intelligence and beauty.
Shunned for the fixing of imaginary damages.
Manipulated with intentions.

...does the poor shallows

... would anybody like to add?

"Certainly, though, there are societal norms - behaviors that are generally accepted by all members of society to be right and normal.

When one individual's behavior deviates too far from what is considered normal by the group, there's great upheaval - the group will decide whether to ostracize, to shun, or to accept the behavior given a bit of time.

If the behavior harms no one, there is a greater chance of acceptance, but the society may take some time to observe, sometimes with wary regard. If the behavior is harmful to anyone in the society, the person is regarded with suspicion and may be avoided. If the behavior is obviously harmful, even subtly, then the behavior, and the person doing it, will be shunned and even ostracized.

In this way,
we influence behavior - we encourage those behaviors that benefit society; examples: altruism, heroism, generosity, honesty."

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
