THE BEST FISH SWIM NEAR THE BOTTOM

It is always easy to catch the fish that swim near the surface of the water. But the best always remains at the bottom and hence they cannot be caught easily. The pain taken to catch such fish is always worth­while. Likewise, the rarest of gems are usually found at the bottom of oceans. People usually are too lazy or reluctant to take enough pains and thereby achieve good results in life. Even if they do not yield good results overnight, they certainly will pay up in the long run. History is full of such examples which emphasize the fact that real success can only be achieved by putting in hard and sincere effort. A man must be prepared to work hard to get the real fruits of life.
