It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.

- Lord Krishna, (quote from The Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 3, Verse 35)


Original quote in Sanksrit with its explanation.

śreyān sva-dharmo viguṇaḥ
  para-dharmāt sv-anuṣṭhitāt
sva-dharme nidhanaṁ śreyaḥ
  para-dharmo bhayāvahaḥ


śreyān – far better; sva-dharmaḥ – one’s prescribed duties; viguṇaḥ – even faulty; para-dharmāt – than duties mentioned for others; su-anuṣṭhitāt – perfectly done; sva-dharme – in one’s prescribed duties; nidhanam – destruction; śreyaḥ – better; para-dharmaḥ – duties prescribed for others; bhaya-āvahaḥ – dangerous.”

TRANSLATION
It is far better to discharge one’s prescribed duties, even though faultily, than another’s duties perfectly. Destruction in the course of performing one’s own duty is better than engaging in another’s duties, for to follow another’s path is dangerous.

Excerpt From: His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. “Bhagavad-Gita As It Is.”
