Never Give Up…

Amir Taimur, was someone who was so firm and unfaltering
 in every predicament, that he did not cower from any misfortune.  
When the reason for this was sought from him, he said:
“Once, having fled from my enemies and seeking refuge in
the ruins  of a worn down and dilapidated building,
I was reflecting over my future when my eyes suddenly fell
upon a small and weak Ant, carrying a grain bigger
than itself,  endeavoring to climb to the top of a wall.
“Looking carefully and counting accurately, I found that
 the grain had dropped from its clutches sixty
seven times before the Ant finally managed
to make it to the top of  the
wall with it.
The spectacle of this effort on  the part
of the Ant infused within me strength of  
such great magnitude that
 I am never able to forget it.”
“I said to myself: O’ Taimur!
You are by no means
inferior to an Ant. 
Arise and get back to work. I got up and gathered my
resolve till  I eventually came to acquire the courage
that I now possess.”
Moral of the Story: Falling down is not defeat…      
defeat is when you refuse to get up.
