Do you think the line ‘Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it’ means that one should be ‘desperate’ or restless’ to achieve one’s goal? Explain your opinion, in your notebook.
No. If you are desperate, you might take unnecessary risks to achieve your goal. If you are 'restless', you will have no peace of mind. What the poet means by losing 'time', peace', and 'sleep' means spending many hours working hard to gain one's objectives and to continually keep on thinking about it until it is achieved.
