The nobler sort of man emphasizes the good qualities in others, and does not accentuate the bad. The inferior does.


I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

~Frank Sinatra ~

"We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time."

~Vince Lombardi~

To believe in one's dreams is to spend all of one's life asleep.

~Chinese Proverb ~

People do not wish to appear foolish; to avoid the appearance of foolishness,
they are willing to remain actually fools.

~Alice Walker~

Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is the richness of self.

~ May Sarton~

Procrastination is the hindrance to success

Self praise is no praise but an internatioal disgrace.

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.

"People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It never was between you and them anyway."

~Mother Teresa ~

Look at something as if you're seeing it for the very first or the very last time.

In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: They must be fit for it. They must not do too much of it. And they must have a sense of success in it.

Gender Equality
Girls want equal opportunities and NOT equality.

Giving and Receiving
True giving does not expect anything in return.
Otherwise it is a transaction,
Not giving.

True receiving occurs with a grateful attitude.
Otherwise it is exploitation.
Not receiving.

" the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow.
Even darkness must pass.
A new day will come.
And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer."

15 Sayings of the Buddha

Health is the greatest gift,
Contentment is the greatest wealth,
Faithfulness is the greatest relationship,
Enlightenment is the greatest happiness.

Your work is to discover your work
and then with all your heart,
Give yourself to it.

The secret of health for both mind and body
Is not to mourn for the past,
Not to worry about the future,
Or not to anticipate troubles,
But to live in the present moment
Wisely and earnestly.

Love the world,
As a mother loves her only child.

Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines,
But it is to the one who endures
That the final victory comes.

There has to be evil
So that good can prove
Its purity above it.

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt.
Doubt separates people.
It is a poison that disintegrates friendships
And breaks up pleasant relations.
It is a thorn that irritates and hurts;
it is a sword that kills.

Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time.
Hatred ceases through love.
This is an unchanging law.

You will not be punished for your anger,
You will be punished by your anger.


'He insulted me,
he cheated me,
he beat me,
he robbed me'
-- those who are free of resentful thoughts
Surely find peace.

Fashion your life as a garland of beautiful deeds.

The rule of friendship means there should be mutual sympathy between them,
Each supplying what the other lacks
And trying to benefit the other,
Always using friendly and sincere words.

A good friend who points out mistakes and imperfections
And rebukes evil is to be respected as if
He reveals a secret of hidden treasure.

The Way is not in the sky.
The Way is in the heart.

Believe nothing,
No matter where you read it,
Or who said it,
No matter if I have said it,
Unless it agrees with reason
And your own common sense.
