Buddhism Day by Day: Don’t become Subservient or Dwell on Tiny Setback

“Do not become subservient. Do not dwell on every tiny setback in the course of pursuing your chosen path. To do so would be foolish. Victory or defeat is determined by our entire lives. Moreover, our final years are the most crucial.

What is enviable the pretentious rich? What is great about conceited celebrities? What is admirable about political leaders who gain their positions of power by treating others with contempt? Dig right where you stand, for there lies a rich wellspring!”
