Silver Spoon

Another example of Srila Prabhupada using idiomatic English appears in a purport to the Srimad Bhagavatam, Twenty-fifth Chapter, Text 5, where he writes, “It can be concluded that one cannot become happy by simply performing pious activities. It is not a fact that those who are born with a silver spoon in their mouth are free from the material miseries of birth, old age, disease and death.”
