Only a mouse finds its hands full with a couple of food grains. Small desires do not behove you. Commit yourself to a lofty target worthy of you. Be convinced that you will succeed.

-from MahaBharatha, Udyogaparva, Mother Kunthi’s exhortation to the Pandava princes and Krishna

    I got both the quotes - this one and the assume one - from my classes... Didn't think of it during the class, but realised what a great quote this one is, only while going thru my notes today!

    Superb quote... Kind of very relevant! Exams are NOT lofty targets!!! So I shouldn't worry about them too much!!!

    Aim big! Sound advice for life. Everybody needs to go back and read some of the scriptures at some time. I guess with us, it's normally when we retire :D
