We often hear that nothing is certain in this world, except Death and Taxes. This line is so old, because it was written more than two centuries ago by Benjamin Franklin, in his letter (dated November 13, 1789) to fellow Scientist friend Jean-Baptiste Leroy. Benjamin Franklin wrote in French: “….dans ce monde, il n’y a rien d’assure que la mort et les impôts.” This can be translated as “….in this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes.” It's really amazing that this statement by Benjamin Franklin is still valid, very well-accepted and so well-utilized even today, more than 225 years later. - Deo.

We often hear that Time heals all wounds. It's a misconception, in my view. Some wounds can be very deep and way beyond any healing process. Most of the wounds, given enough time, turn into scars. And the pain lessens, but it never goes away. Somewhere deep inside, we must feel it, still alive and afresh! Never walk away from your innermost feelings, no matter how painful those may be; because that's the reality of life we must accept and manage effectively. Good luck, my friend!

We often hear the phrases like "Universe is telling me with signs" or "karma is calling" or "kismet making connection" or "serendipity" or "chance" or"coincidence" and so on, whenever people refer to an unexpected life-changing event or a major scientific breakthrough that happened as an unintended consequence of otherwise normal course of actions. As a Scientist, I do think that any new invention doesn't happen by chance alone, as it may appear at the outset. Deeper analysis always reveals that any notable invention is almost alwaysa result of the synergistic meeting of statistical probability with well planned strategy, i. e. it's a combination of uncertainty with certainty that occurs at right time in right place. As Louis Pasteur said it 'Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.' meaning 'In the field of observations, chance favors theprepared mind.' So, keep your mind alert and well prepared at all times, because you never know when Serendipity would visit you, or when Universe would tap on your shoulder to give you the signs. Only your prepared mind would enable you to welcome wonderful Serendipity and understand the subtle signs sent to you by Universe.

We often hear the phrases like "Universe sending messages" or "Serendipity" whenever people describe an unexpected life-changing event, or an invention that happened unexpectedly as a totally unintended consequence of otherwise normal course of actions. As a Scientist, I do think that no new invention happens by either best design of experiments or coincidental chance taken alone. A deeper analysis always reveals that any notable invention is often the result of a synergistic meeting of statistical probability with well planned strategy, i. e. it's a combination of uncertainty with certainty that occurs at right time in right place. As Louis Pasteur said it correctly, "Dans les champs de l'observation le hasard ne favorise que les esprits préparés.' meaning 'In the field of observations, chance favors theprepared mind.' So, you must keep your mind alert, sharp and well prepared at all times, because you never know when Serendipity would visit you, or when Universe would tap on your shoulder to give you the serendipitous signs. Only your prepared mind would enable you to welcome wonderful Serendipity in your life, and understand the subtle signs sent to you by Universe.

We often marry in despair, so that we repent of it all our life after.
– MolièreRate it:
We often say"Forgive and Forget." That's the correct sequence IMHO. If you want to forget someone or some unpleasant event, you must first forgive. Forgiveness is the precursor to Forgetting. If you don't forgive, you'll never forget, and that someone or that unpleasant event will stay with you, carved inside your heart and deep in your mind. Like a magma chamber of a volcano, you will then embody the hot burning lava of hate and volcanic ashes of bad memories. So to move on with life, you ought to learn to forgive, first and foremost, even the worst people round you. The stream of life would then flow smoothly and seamlessly - onwards and upwards.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-KhatkhateRate it:
We often speak of love when we really should be speaking of the drive to dominate or to master, so as to confirm ourselves as active agents, in control of our own destinies and worthy of respect from others.
– Thomas SzaszRate it:
We often use strong language not to express a powerful emotion but to evoke it in us.
– Eric HofferRate it:
We only do well the things we like doing.
– Sidonie Gabrielle ColetteRate it:
We only fear what we don't know, if we knew everything we would have no fear.
– Tom ZeganRate it:
We only have now! Everything else is either imagination or memory."
