Worse than too much wrath is the laxity Due to too much exultation. Just as constant want crushes the intellect, Negligence kills repute. All writings of the world conclude the same That fame is not for the lax. There is no refuge for the coward, Nor is there anything good for the lax. The negligent unmindful of threats beforehand Will repent for the mistakes later on. Nothing can equal never being lax With anyone at any time without fail. There is nothing too difficult for a man Armed with vigilance. Cherish and perform praiseworthy acts. To neglect and put off deprives one in seven births. When the mind is elated with joy, Think of those who were ruined by neglect. What is aimed is easy to achieve, If only the mind is set on what is aimed.
