Do not give up saying 'It is impossible'. Effort will overcome. Leave no task incomplete, For the world gives up those who give up. The pride of being a philanthropist belongs to those Who have that quality called perseverance. The liberality of the indolent man will not endure, Like a sword in eunuch's hand. A pillar of comfort to his friends is he Who scorns delight and loves labour. Exertion leads to wealth; Lack of it brings forth poverty. The black ogress 'misfortune' lurks in laziness, While goddess 'fortune' lingers in active men. Ill-luck is never blamed. What is blamed Is knowledge without exertion. Even though God be against, Effort is bound to pay the wages of labour. Those who never get tired of striving undauntedly Shall leave even Fate behind.
