Yogananda: Do not become discouraged ever
You must try to rise above these changing scenes. Do not become discouraged when people strike you. You must remember to control yourself. Don’t talk too much. Those who talk too much are liable to talk useless things and waste their time. Avoid useless talk, and don’t be inquisitive about others. Be curious about God. about Gita, and about your lessons. Seek quiet places where you can be alone. Meditate and find your spiritual balance.
– Paramhansa Yogananda
