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.

We only part to meet again.
– John GayRate it:
We only seem to learn from Life that Life doesn't matter so much as it seemed to do -- it's not so burningly important, after all, what happens. We crawl, like blinking sea-creatures, out of the Ocean onto a spur of rock, we creep over the promontory bewildered and dazzled and hurting ourselves, then we drop in the ocean on the other side: and the little transit doesn't matter so much.
– D. H. LawrenceRate it:
We only think when we are confronted with problems.
– John DeweyRate it:
We only want that which is given naturally to all peoples of the world, to be masters of our own fate, not of others, and in cooperation and friendship with others.

We ought never to mock the wretched, for who can be sure of being always happy?

We ought not be over anxious to encourage innovation, in case of doubtful improvement, for an old system must ever have two advantages over a new one; it is established and it is understood.
– C. C. ColtonRate it:
We ought not to judge of men's merits by their qualifications, but by the use they make of them.
– Richard CecilRate it:
We ought not to look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dear-brought experience.
– George WashingtonRate it:
We ought to dance with rapture that we might be alive - and part of the living, incarnate cosmos.
– D. H. LawrenceRate it:
We ought to do good to others as simply as a horse runs, or a bee makes honey, or a vine bears grapes season after season without thinking of the grapes it has borne.
– Marcus Aelius AureliusRate it:
We ought to reverence books; to look on them as useful and mighty things. If they are good and true, whether they are about religion, politics, farming, trade, law, or medicine, they are the message of Christ, the maker of all things -- the teacher of all truth.
