Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
There is this boy in a certain school . This boy has a fascination towards soccer and always practised his level best but was never selected for the final team but he never left his practise and hope.
When ever he is there for practise , he was accompanied by his father who used to sit in the same seat till his practice is finished.
The final year came and the final selections for the team is near and the practice is at its peak.
When there are still 4 days left for the selections and match, the boy suddenly stopped coming to the practice and the coach was not informed priorly about it.
The selections day came and the match will be in the afternoon and suddenly the boy appeared from no where before the coach and asked a place for him .
Now the coach said “son, I had better players and you are not here for the practice sessions and how can u expect me to take you in, I cant go against my better judgement and I cannot take you in”.
The Boy pleaded like anything and almost is on the feet of his coach begging a place for him. Now the coach never had seen anyone plead like that and said “son, okay I can give you a chance for the first half and you got to prove your abilities and never forget that the reputation of the school is at risk, this is the first time i am going against my better judgement”
The Boy thanked him and got into the finals.
The match started.
The boy played like a house on fire and he converted every ball that came to him into a goal. needless to say, the team won the match for the first time in their history and the boy was awarded the player of the tournament award .
When he came to the coach ,the coach asked him”son where have I went wrong all these days, how am I wrong in my judgement about you all these days , how did you play so well,what motivated you ”
The boy replied”sir my father is watching me”
“Where is he watching from , when ever you made a goal I looked for your father and he is no where to be seen” said the coach with a surprised tone .
“Sir, there is one thing that you dont know, my father is blind by birth. he is just here to motivate me . four days back he DIED and for the very first time he is watching me from there” and pointed his finger to the sky with tears in his eyes.
“Thats what motivated me and made me play so well”.
In youth a man is deluded by other ideas than those which delude him in middle life, and again in his decay he embraces other ideas.
The good to others kindness show, And from them no return exact; The best and greatest men, they know, Thus ever nobly love to act.*
A man should never despise himself, for brilliant success never attends on the man who is contemned by himself.
Just as the track of birds that cleave the air Is not discovered, nor yet the path of fish That skim the water, so the course of those Who do good actions is not always seen.
Of what avail is the praise or censure of the vulgar, who make a useless noise like a senseless crow in a forest?
A wound inflicted by arrows heals, a wood cut down by an axe grows, but harsh words are hateful?a wound inflicted by them does not heal. Arrows of different sorts can be extracted from the body, but a word-dart cannot be drawn out, for it is seated in the heart.
Rich presents, though profusely given, Are not so dear to righteous Heaven As gifts by honest gains supplied, Though small, which faith hath sanctified.
Do naught to others which, if done to thee, would cause thee pain: this is the sum of duty.*
Entangled in a hundred worldly snares, Self-seeking men, by ignorance deluded, Strive by unrighteous means to pile up riches. Then, in their self-complacency, they say, ?This acquisition I have made to-day, That will I gain to-morrow, so much pelf Is hoarded up already, so much more Remains that I have yet to treasure up. This enemy I have destroyed, him also, And others in their turn, I will despatch. I am a lord; I will enjoy myself; I?m wealthy, noble, strong, successful, happy; I?m absolutely perfect; no one else In all the world can be compared to me. Now will I offer up a sacrifice, Give gifts with lavish hand, and be triumphant.? Such men, befooled by endless vain conceits, Caught in the meshes of the world?s illusion, Immersed in sensuality, descend Down to the foulest hell of unclean spirits.*
A bad man is as much pleased as a good man is distressed to speak ill of others.
An evil-minded man is quick to see His neighbour?s faults, though small as mustard seed; But when he turns his eyes towards his own, Though large as bilva fruit, he none descries.
She is a wife who is notable in her house; she is a wife who beareth children; she is a wife whose husband is as her life; she is a wife who is obedient to her lord. The wife is half the man; a wife is man?s dearest friend; a wife is the source of his religion, his worldly profit, and his love. He who hath a wife maketh offerings in his house. Those who have wives are blest with good fortune. Wives are friends, who, by their kind and gentle speech, soothe you in your retirement. In your distresses they are as mothers, and they are refreshment to those who are travellers in the rugged paths of life.
Such deeds as thou with fear and grief Wouldst, on a sick-bed laid, recall, In youth and health eschew them all, Remembering life is frail and brief.
Those men are wise who do not desire the unattainable, who do not love to mourn over what is lost, and are not overwhelmed by calamities.
Repeated sin destroys the understanding And he whose reason is impaired repeats His sins. The constant practising of virtue Strengthens the mental faculties, and he Whose judgment stronger grows acts always right.
