Self praise is no recommendation – Chanakya

Whosoever is of reverse character, whoever has not his organs of sense under his control, will soon perish, even if he possesses the whole earth.

Success depends on how well a person can enforce control over lust, anger, greed, vanity, haughtiness and over joy.

Self praise is no recommendation.

Many tiny beings, when combined, vanquish even a big enemy. The collective strength of the infinitesimal straws prevents even the fierce rainwater from passing through them.

A mere trickle of the tiny drops of water can fill the pitcher. The same way we must keep on collecting knowledge, Dharma and money.
