Stay happy, healthy and safe – 63

Once you start working on something,

don’t be afraid of failure and don’t abandon it.

People who work sincerely are the happiest.


~ Chanakya

Chanakya  was an ancient Indian teacher, philosopher, economist, jurist and royal advisor. He is traditionally identified as Kauṭilya or Vishnugupta, who authored the ancient Indian political treatise, the Arthashastra, a text dated to roughly between the 3rd century BCE and the 3rd century CE. As such, he is considered the pioneer of the field of political science and economics in India, and his work is thought of as an important precursor to classical economics. His works were lost near the end of the Gupta Empire and not rediscovered until the early twentieth century. ….Wikipedia

wind would blow them away

When ink joins with a pen,

then the blank paper
can say something.

Rushes and reeds must be woven
to be useful as a mat.

If they weren’t interlaced,

the wind would blow them away.

Don’t settle for mediocre verse.

If you are a man of learning,

read something classic,

a history of the human struggle

and don’t settle for

mediocre verse.
