On Chaanakya Neeti


Chaanakya Neeti
Chaanakya was the catalyst to make Chandragupt King. His political policies are very famous. You may read his more quotations HERE.

Learn from the mistakes of others... you can't live long enough to make them all by yourselves!

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.

The world's biggest power is the youth and beauty of a woman.

Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.

Books are as useful to a stupid person as a mirror is useful to a blind person.

The life of a person, without education, is just a waste like the tail of a dog. The tail of the dog fails to conceal the private parts of the animal and it is also useless while put to use to drive away the insects which bite his body. Because of ignorance, he does not have the culture to know what to reveal and what to conceal. Also he cannot have enough food to satisfy this urge to chew with his teeth nor will have have the  discrimination as to when to show teeth and when not to show them.

Once you start a working on something, don't be afraid of failure and don't 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.

Whores don't live in the company of poor men, citizens never support a weak company and birds don't build nests on a tree that doesn't 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.

An iceberg is a good analogy of our character and personality. The tip of the iceberg is what is seen first by other people - our personality. The part that lies underneath the water is our character, which lays unseen and hidden. Our personality is our image, techniques and skills that influence our outward success, but our true success will come from the goodness of our character that lies beneath the surface.
