Solved Precis Exercise “Hard Work is Key to Success” 168 Words Precis for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation Exam.

The underlying secret of a lamp’s luster and splendor is that it spares not its wick and oil. The wick and oil or the little self is being constantly consumed and glory, is the natural consequence. There it is, the lamp says spare your life and you will be immediately extinguished. If you seek ease and comfort for your bodies and waste your time in sensual pleasure and luxury, there is no hope for you. Inactivity, in other words, would bring death to you, and activity and activity alone is life. Look at the stagnant pond and the running stream. The crystal water of the rustling river is ever fresh, clear, drinkable and attractive. But on the other hand, see how disgusting, odorous, filthy, dirty, stinking and stanching the water of the stagnant pond is. If you wish to succeed, follow the line of action, the constant motion of a river. There is no hope for a man who would waste his wick and oil by preserving it from consumption.
