World Youth Conference Discourses
"Our joys and sorrows are the reflection of our own actions; they are not caused by others. To blame others for our sorrows is a big mistake. Everything in this world is reaction, reflection, and resound. Every person is their own witness. Acquire education that gives knowledge of the Self. Only the youth are capable of protecting this world. It is the youth and youth alone who can set this world right. No nation can stand without youth."
Sri Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol 39, 27th May 2006
If you say that the world is not a bed of roses but is a place of misery, the fault lies in you, the inhabitants. It is character that marks the life of a good individual.
