This proverb has great significance in every day life. It means as the action is, so is the result. A good action has a good result, and an evil action has a bad result. A result is the natural fruit of man's action.
Happiness or misery in life depends upon the deeds of man and neither any accident, nor a mischance is responsible for our troubles. Grapes cannot be gathered from thorny bushes. If you sow wheat, what harvest you can expect. It is thus the man who is responsible for his failure.
In the golden period of youth, if you sow the seeds of idleness, bad habits, you will reap nothing, but misery, hardship and humiliation: but if you sow the seeds of industry, patience, strong will, life will be bright and fruitful.
The actions of man shape his life to come. So everybody must beware that he builds his future life in the right way. So let our field of life be strew with the seeds of virtue and good deeds, so that we may reap a rich harvest of happiness here and here after.
