In the life process of a human being, in terms of physical prowess, mental sharpness, and above all effervescence of energy, you’re at your best when you’re youthful. If you do not use that, to make something worthwhile of the life that you are, not necessarily in terms of social and professional terms, but as a life. If you do not make something worthwhile of yourself, later on doing it will become difficult.

If you understand, you have come with nothing in your hands, you shall also go with nothing in your hands, in between whatever happening here is fantastic. If you understand this much, you will stay youthful.
