“What I am saying is this: the score is not what matters. Life does not have to be
regarded as a game in which scores are kept and somebody wins. If you are too intent
on winning, you will never enjoy playing. If you are too obsessed with success,
you will forget to live. If you have learned only how to be a success, your life
has probably been wasted.”

Thomas Merton. Love and Living. (New York: Harcourt) p. 12

“A person in Krsna consciousness is always transcendental to the material modes of nature. He has no expectations for the result of the work entrusted to him, because he is above false ego and pride. Still, he is always enthusiastic till the completion of such work. He does not worry about the distress undertaken; he is always enthusiastic. He does not care for success or failure; he is equal in both distress and happiness. Such a worker is situated in the mode of goodness. ”

Bhagavad Gita 18.26
