“Be not afraid of anything, You will do marvellous work. “
“The moment you fear, you are nobody. It is the fear that is the greatest of all superstitions.“
“It is the fear that is the cause of our woes, And it is fearlessness that brings heaven even in a moment.“
Therefore, “Arise, Awake, Stop not till the goal is reached.”
