Never give up

via Subhashita Manjari by Aham brahmāsmi on 10/14/09

रत्नैर्महार्हैस्तुतुषुर्न देवाः
न भेजिरे भीमविषेण भीतिम् ।
सुधां विना न प्रययुर्विरामम्
न निश्चितार्थाद्विरमन्ति धीराः ॥

– भर्तृहरेः नीतिशतकम्

The gods were not happy with the precious gems obtained from the milky ocean. They were not afraid of the deadly poison. They did not rest until they obtained the nectar of immortality. In fact, the steadfast do not relax without accomplishing the determined task.

(The cited incident appears in the mythological story of milky ocean churning).

“Perseverance is the key to success”
“Fear is only as deep as the mind allows”
“Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached”
