Quote of the Day
In the beginning there may be some failures. That is quite natural. Just as a child is trying to stand, he may be fall down. But that does not mean he should give up the idea. Go on. A time will come when he will be perfect. A time will come when you'll be perfect, Krishna conscious.- Los Angeles, 1969
