We have seen the waves of the sea and rocks on the shore. Rocks have the power, waves have the persistence. Waves weaker in strength compared to the strong rocks persistently hit the rock . And at the end waves shape the rocks. Whether you have strength or not if you have persistence you will win. Flowing water always flows no matter what obstacle it meets on the way. Either it takes the obstacle along or it changes its path. Nothing can stop it from flowing. Be persistent like waves and be spirited like flowing water. You will win. Ups and downs are part of living but always keeping oneself happy is art of living. So live your life to its fullest extent.
