C Rajagopalachari – Words of Wisdom

Woman is a source of trouble if you keep her at a distance, but if you come together, she is a source of joy. We are imitative by nature. Self pity is not a very good thing to indulge in. Your life is your work. Our body and here are the temple of God. Godlessness leads to false ideas of progress and civilization, exploitation and war.
