Essay on “Variety is this Spice of Life” Complete Essay for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Variety is this Spice of Life


Change is the Law of Nature


  This world is a state upon which the drama of life is played by men and women. It is a very interesting drama.  That is why nobody, however, miserable, likes to leave this world.  This drama is so gripping because the scenes are changing every minute.  Light changes into darkness; childhood changes into old age; life changes into death; dry seeds change into lovely tall trees and rosy lips and cheeks change into wrinkled faces. Change or variety is a part of life.  In fact, it is variety only that adds flavour to life.

                ‘Variety is the spice of life’ is a true maxim.  Life would have been dull and dry, dismal  and dark, ‘darkness’; ‘up’ has no meaning without ‘down’; ‘white’ has no meaning without ‘black’; ‘love’ has no meaning if there is no ‘hatred’. Pleasure and pain would similarly be meaningless if they refer to an unchangeable state.  A man who has never seen poverty, cannot sing the blessings of prosperity.  It is, therefore, variety, alone that makes life spicy and enjoyable.

                Any action, however interesting at first, becomes monotonous in the long run.  Take the case of executioner.  When he hangs a man for the first time, he is badly shaken at the idea of putting a matter of routine with him.  He hangs a man as disinterestedly as somebody hangs a picture on the wall.  In fact, any activity in life becomes boring and tiring if there is no variety in it.

                Change has its own thrill and delight.  Look at nature.  Does it not undergo a change every moment? Everything is changing.  Every moment there is a change.  The sun rises and sets; the stars shine and disappear; autumn changes into spring and summer changes into winter, flowers bloom and wither away; barren and infertile lands change into smiling, fluttering fields; day change into night and night change into day.  The change in the universe and the nature is so sure and so constant that it has to changes into day. The change in the universe and the nature is so sure and so constant that is has to be accepted what change is the law of nature and variety is the spice of life.  A poet has rightly remarked:

                “What is on earth,

                Nay, under heaven, continues at a stay?

                Ebbs not the sea, when it has overflowed,

                Follows not darkness, when the day is gone?”


                Variety in life is, in fact, a biological and psychological necessity.  Life cannot grow or develop properly if there is no variety or change in it.  No knowledge or pleasure is possible if life is unchanging or monotonous.  Love of variety should, however, not be pushed too far.  Too much of everything is bad.  Happiness lies in the golden mean.  Too many spices only spoil the taste.  We should, therefore, welcome variety but we should not be crazy for it.
