Since you wanted it in Hindi characters as well, I am giving the same hereinbelow:

भटकने वाले सभी लोग गुम नहीं होते

It perhaps implies that losing the sight of one\'s goal does not necessarily mean that he would not achieve it. Some of them eventually succeeed in attaining their goals. We may put this poetic expression in the following manner also:

Pathbhrasht ho jAne wAley sabhI log asfal nahI(N) hotey

पथभ्रष्ट हो जाने वाले सभी लोग असफल नहीं होते।
It means all of those who lose their way don\'t fail. It has an indirect meaning that some of them may do so.
