The remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

There is nothing more becoming a wise man than to make choice of friends, for by them thou shalt be judged what thou art. Let them therefore be wise and virtuous, and none of those that follow thee for gain; but make election rather of thy betters than thy inferiors; shunning always such as are poor and needy, for if thou givest twenty gifts and refuse to do the like but once, all that thou hast done will be lost, and such men will become thy mortal enemies.

Sir W Raleigh, to his Son

To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.

Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to become the means by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of other men. Blood, whips and guns--or dollars. Take your choice--there is no other.

We gain amazing confidence and courage on every occasion, invariably, when we work outside our comfort zone. When we are outside our element, we have no choice but to challenge ourselves in order to win against all odds, and in the face of fear and uncertainty. In my view, we offer our best performance when we have to operate outside our comfort zone, just like a meteor enters Earth's gravitational field and shines with the brightest light that illuminates the sky. Hence we mustn't fear leaving our comfort zone or being outside our element any time. Instead, we should challenge the status quo to offer the best performance in an unfamiliar territory. This is how we reinvent ourselves, and become the better versions of ourselves than ever before.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
