SUCCESS AWAITS THE COURAGEOUS, DEFEAT DOGS THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE COWARD. HE WHO RISKS EVERYTHING WINS LAURELS There is a Sanskrit couplet to this effect Fortune favours the hałd working lion; The cowards talk of the gifts of God Set aside the habit of staring at fortune to get something, and the work is hardest If you fail even after this, it is not your fault Alexander, Napoleon and the host of others, who continued to shine unfadingly in the history of the world.
It is the brave English sailors who founded the mighty British Empire. If they had been afraid of the great oceans, distant unknown lands, inhospitable shores and inclement climates, they would not have established the empire on which 'the sun nevet set.'
