Those of us who give up hope of winning are already defeated.
What will you say to a student who is doing a multiple-choice question paper and is on question number six but is thinking about question number nine?
For God’s sake forget about question number nine, just pay your full attention to question number six, and if you can sort this question out with your full attention, there is hope that you will do well when you arrive at question number nine. If you can’t focus on question number six, what is the hope that you will be able to focus on question number nine?
People become old even before they have acquired youth.
I was watching a YouTube video of a spiritual teacher who was talking about problems with India historically, that people become old even before they have acquired youth.

They are psychologically killing themselves; you cannot have any expectations from them of developing nations and societies.
