Chanakya Said..

One who is in search of knowledge should give up the search of pleasure and the one who is in search of pleasure should give up the search of knowledge. Once you start working on something, don't be afraid of failure and don't abandon it. People who work sincerely are the happiest. The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions. Jealousy is another name for failure. The world's biggest power is the youth and beauty of a woman. A woman is four times as shy, six times as brave and eight times as lusty as a man. Whores don't live in company of poor men, birds don't build nests on a tree that doesn't bear fruits and citizens never support a weak administration. Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness. The biggest guru-mantra is: Never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you. The four greatest enemies of a man are - the father who has taken a loan, the characterless mother, the beautiful but promiscuous wife and the stupid child. Treat your kid like a darling for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends. Never go on a long journey alone. Wise men should never go into a country where there are no means of earning one's livelihood, where the people have no dread of anybody, have no sense of shame, no intelligence, or a charitable disposition.   Internee, Dayanand Ayurvedic College, Jalandhar-8 (Pb.)
