Tirurukkural 637: The Office of Minister of State

Though you are acquainted with the (theoretical) methods (of performing an act), understand the ways of the world and act accordingly.

The burdened have no sense of urgency, no expression of joy. They have stopped. They are standing on the path holding their troubles in their hands, unwilling and unable to let go.
