Mahabharata..one imp quote

Yudhishthira--How might a man overcome difficulties?

Bheeshma--never practice deceit.
Behave with restraint, control all worldly desires.
Do not speak when addressed in foul language,
do not injure others;
give, rather than take.
Do not sin in thought,word or deed, never harm any creature.
Always speak the truth even though your life may be at stake.
Speak words which are agreable,always spend your wealth well.
Bow to all gods,listen to the doctrines of all creeds, have faith

Nice one. But I have a few questions:

Control worldly desires. If everyone practices this, then there won't be any future generation. Right?

If everyone wants to give, who will be the receiver?
