This is a famous 'subhAShitam' [source unknown].

For explanation:

In a chariot with one wheel, drawn by seven horses reined in by serpents,
without a resting place,
even the lame sun traverses the vast skies every day!
Great people achieve their objectives through sheer force of will, not
depending on other means.

Does that mean 'sattva' is translated to 'force of will'?
