Defeat is imminent when the power of reasoning is lost – Bhagavad Gita

It is not wise for an intelligent being like you to lament at the time of crisis. You should not be weak at the time of adversity; you should fight the adversities with a brave heart.
You should not grieve for those who are not worthy to be grieved for. The wise grieve neither for the living nor for the dead.
For a warrior, nothing is more dignified than a war against the evil. A warrior should be pleased when confronted with a war, for it comes as an open gate to heaven.
Anger gives rise to delusion. Delusion corrupts the mind, and a corrupt mind destrolys the power to reason properly. Defeat is imminent when the power of reasoning is lost.
You have the right over your responsibilities, and the proper actions required of it, but you don’t have the right to the rewards resulting out of it.
You should never engage in an action only for the desire of the rewards, and you should not desire inaction. Bhagavad Gita
