Thoughts of Chanakya

  • A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.
  • Even if a snake is not poisonous, it should pretend to be venomous.
  • The biggest guru-mantra is : Never share your secrets with anybody! It will destroy you.
  • There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.
  • Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions – Why am I doing it, what the results might be and will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.
  • As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it.
  • Once you start a working on something, do not be afraid of failure and do not abandon it. People who work sincerely are the happiest.
  • The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all direction.
  • Whore s do not live in company of poor men, citizens never support a weak company and birds do not build nests on a tree that does not bear fruits.
  • God is not present in idols. Your feelings are your god. The soul is your temple.
  • A man is great by deeds, not by birth.
  • Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness.
  • Treat your kid like a darling for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends.
  • Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.
  • Books are as useless to a stupid person as a mirror is useless to a blind person.The world’s biggest power is the youth and beauty of a woman.
  • Learn from the mistakes of others… you can not live long enough to make them all yourselves!
