Here is what Swami Chinmayananda says:
"Mere study is not sufficient. Study gives us information. Scriptures and Sastras only give us a road map. However much you may study the road map, you will never reach the pilgrim centre. Study the map, roll it up and keep it handy by your side, as it may be useful enroute the journey. Now get up from your chair, get into your vehicle and move on along the way the map indicates so clearly."
"Work is unavoidable. Choose a field that inspires you, that is in line with your nobler tendencies."
