Chapter 26 The Man Who Wins
Q.1 Express line 3 and 4 of the first stanza in your own words.
The poet gives a strong message in the poem “The man who wins”. In lines 3 and 4 of the first stanza of the poem, the poet says that the success and work of a man just depend on the will and thinking of the individual. If someone has a desire to win in his life but he has a fear to lose, he can never ever achieve success in his life.
Q.2 Do you agree with the message of this poem? Why?
Yes, I agree with the message of the poem because it is the will power of an individual that moves him or her towards achieving his goal. It is mainly due to the thoughts of our mind, not the movements of our body that takes a man to the zenith of success. The message of the poem is just equivalent to a famous proverb, “If there is a will, there is a way.”
