If you defend your weakness, it will strengthen. If you beat down your weakness, it will die. It's that simple.
Believe in your strength and let it grow until your flaws don't matter.
What matters is how you use your strength.
Avoiding failure and pain is the same as avoiding life. Just as we pray for bliss and happiness, pray for strength to overcome suffering. You can't avoid pain, but you can become strong enough to face it.
What you think you'll feel, what you'll feel you'll believe. Think right, feel good and believe the best.
Knowledge doesn't define how smart you are. Your choices do.
We need to have strong education and soft punishment. Not the other way round.
