“Everything around us leads to madness, to childishness, to the exasperation of imagination. Against all this, studying is not enough.
Take conscience of this moral infection and fight, fight, fight for your balance, for your maturity, for your lucidity. Make an ideal out of normality, sanity, the centrality of the soul.
Promise to yourselves to be strong personalities, well-structured, serene amidst the storm, ready to overcome all obstacles with the help of God and nobody else.
Promise yourself TO BE and instead of merely asking, getting, feeling and enjoying.”
