Always afraid of making mistakes, always afraid of making wrong decisions, always trying to be perfect; fact is no one is perfect, and the best lessons derive from the mistakes and the wrong decisions we make. Don't be afraid of mistakes, and never regret the decisions you make; use them as a life lesson, and build on them.

Andrew M. Dixon

Always be expectant of the best, which could be success, prosperity etc. Moreover, be ready to face or bear the worst which could be failure, disappointment etc i.e. you've got to be aware that you can be surprised either positively or negatively anytime. Because, life itself is full of surprises. And so, it can surprise you even when you least expect it. All I'm saying conclusively is this, be 24/7 ready to embrace, confront or challenge anything and at anytime. For, surely every human including you can be taken unawares by anything or anybody.

Time and Words are most powerful, and neither of them can be taken back. Be nice to people - always!

Am I motivated by what I really want out of life -- or am I mass-motivated?

Earl Nightingale

Am I willing to give up what I have in order to be what I am not yet? Am I able to follow the spirit of love into the desert? It is a frightening and sacred moment. There is no return. One's life is charged forever. It is the fire that gives us our shape.

America is rather like life. You can usually find in it what you look for. It will probably be interesting, and it is sure to be large.

E. M. Forster

American life is a powerful solvent. It seems to neutralise every intellectual element, however tough and alien it may be, and to fuse it in the native good-will, complacency thoughtlessness, and optimism.

James Harvey Robinson

Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihoodthe virtues that made America.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.

Robert A. Heinlein

An aspect of our uniqueness is the view we have of ourselves. Nobody exists with the same idea we have of ourselves. With our first breath we begin developing our attitudes toward life. When we mature, at whatever age, we are simply a combination and accumulation of all that has occurred up to now. It seem as though we are taught our feelings towards just about everything...as those who instruct us have been... and those that instructed them...and so forth. What might be important could be other than what others think. One of our abilities, as human, is that of choice. We can choose how we feel towards stuff based on our personal experience.
