Premji's maxims

Premji's maxims for IIT students:

*A rupee earned is of far more value than five found.
*Learn to lose and also to enjoy winning. And when you do lose, do not lose the lesson.
*Have faith in your own ideas even if everyone tells you they are wrong. Have enduring faith in yourself because then you will always have enduring faith in others.
*Life's battle does not always go to the person who is stronger and faster. But the person who wins is the person who thinks he can.
*Strive for excellence. We are what we repeatedly do. Remember, excellence is not an act but a habit.
*Always keep in mind that it is only the test of fire that makes fine steel.
*Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values. Your values are your foundation for life.
