Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"In spite of going through the process of austerities and other methods—controlling the senses, controlling the mind, by renunciation; so many formulas we have discussed to elevate oneself, they are required—if we do not try to elevate ourselves, if we try to keep ourselves with the animal propensities, then we remain like animal. Just like if you are admitted in some educational institution, the school, if you don't take advantage of the education, you remain yourself where you are admitted in the same point, then you don't take advantage of the institution, you remain a foolish, or illiterate or ignorant. Similarly, in this human form of life, if you do not take advantage of the knowledge left by the great sages or by the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, then it is exactly like that you enter into educational life, you don't take advantage of it, and you become failed in the ultimate examination."
