Quote by Thomas Taylor
Too many young people itch for what they want without scratching for it.
This quote highlights how many young people have a sense of entitlement, desiring and expecting things without putting in the necessary effort or hard work to earn them. It emphasizes the importance of perseverance and diligence in achieving goals, and suggests that many individuals lack the necessary patience or willingness to work towards what they desire. "Itching" for something implies a strong desire, but "scratching" for it signifies the necessary actions and effort to attain it.
If one wants to abide in the thought-free state, a struggle is inevitable. One must fight one's way through before regaining one's original primal state. If one succeeds in the fight and reaches the goal, the enemy, namely the thoughts, will all subside in the Self and disappear entirely.
