Tirukkural 615: Manly Effort

He who desires not pleasure, but desires labour, will be a pillar to sustain his relations, wiping away their sorrows.

When you say to yourself, "I am all right, right now," you immediately bring the forces of the mind together. All fears, worries and doubts cease. An influx of spiritual energy fills the subconscious, and a sense of dynamic security permeates your being.
