Meglio essere felici in questa vita che aspirare a esserlo nella prossima (Better to be content in this life, than aspire to it in the next). Requiescant in pace (Rest in peace).

Ezio Auditore da Firenze

Merrill One time, I was at this party... and I was sitting on the couch with Amanda McKinney. She was just sitting there, looking beautiful. So, I lean in to kiss her, and I realize I have gum in my mouth. So, I turn to spit it out and put it in a paper cup. I turn back, and Amanda McKinney throws up all over herself. I knew the moment it happened, it was a miracle. I could have been kissing her when she threw up. It would have scarred me for life. I may never have recovered.

Metamorphosis is an inherent part and the most profound process of life, in my view. We constantly transform into better versions of ourselves, like an Ugly Duckling transforming to Swan, and a Caterpillar to beautiful Butterfly. The metamorphosis continues throgh the journey of life, and then from generation to generations yet to come. There is an element of elegance and beauty in the fact that we all evolve, metaphorically, to Butterflies with Earth as our Chrysalis.

Modern life is full of challenges, such as daily demands, deadlines, hassles and frustrations. Whenever the threat of any challenge outweighs one's perception of her/his ability to manage that threat, it can be an onset of Stress. I find it interesting that William Shakespear had offered a perfect strategy to manage the Stress - in his famous play "Hamlet". In this play, Hamlet makes a powerful statement: "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." In this one sentence, Shakespear teaches us that if we change our thoughts about a potentially threatening situation, we should be able to not only cope with the stress, but also lower our stress significantly. By now it's a well-established fact in Psychology that thinking positively, and transforming the threat into a potntial opportunity, empowers us to protect ourselves from the harmful side-effects of Stress.....and William Shakespear knew this fact more than 400 years ago. That's amazing!

Money is in some respects life's fire it is a very excellent servant, but a terrible master.

P Barnum

Most people don't like to be confronted with an actual fact-of-life because it's difficult to metabolize. A painting of a bowl of fruit is much easier. It's for the same reason why we don't like going to the doctor. The diagnosis and x-rays are too honest. This is what creates the perception that contemporary art is shocking or suspicious.”

Adamo Macri

My goal in life is to make everyone else happy and when I'm happy I try to make them believe they're the cause of it

Mike Zmija

My life is a simple thing that would interest no one. It is a known fact that I was born and that is all that is necessary.

Albert Einstein

My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.

Ayn Rand

My purpose in life does not include a hankering to charm society.

James Dean

My writing may not fully represent either my thought process or my personal sentiments at the time of writing those thoughts - because I always strive to be objective and well-balanced spectator of the situation, instead of enforcing my personal standpoints to my readers. I believe that such approach does the best justice to subject matter. Objectivity is always the key and important parameter in all processes of Life!

Nature is a good teacher; he who can read the nature well, he can learn sagacious things belong to life from it. Once you stepped in the nature, your philosophical education starts. A black vulture teaches you many things; a bear teaches you many things; a bird making its nest and a rosehip which resists being frozen, they teach you many things!

Mehmet Murat ildan

Never try to look back, and never gaze into the Past. Sometimes Past can be like Medusa, the hideous Gorgon with scary human face and having venomous snakes in the place of her hair. Beware of gazing directly into Medusa's eyes, for it can turn the onlooker into a stone. The Past does exactly the same - it freezes you stone cold, slowing and stopping all your actions, ambitions and aspirations..... the reason why Past is likened to Medusa here. Look forward to today, to this very moment, to the Present that welcomes you happily, as your journey of life continues upwards and onwards. A Viaxe Continua! Have a great journey, my friend!

No birth certificate is issued when friendship is born. There is nothing tangible. There is just a feeling that your life is different and that your capacity to love and care has miraculously been enlarged with out any effort on your part. It's like having a tiny apartment and somebody moves in with you. But instead of becoming cramped and crowded, the space expands, and you discover rooms you never knew you had until your friend moved in with you.

Steve Tesich

No matter how old you are, there are certain moments in life when you need your father's hand and your mother's lap to comfort you, to give you the strength to fight and win against the odds. And no matter how old you become, or wherever you may be in this world, you'll realize that your father's hand and your mother's lap will always be there to comfort you and protect you throughout your life. No science or logic can explain this, for these are the matters of love and faith that defy all norms.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

No matter how others treat you, be nice to all the people who touch your life. The only words you will regret years later in life, besides those you had left unspoken, will be the ones that you intentionally used to hurt others, Time and Words never come back, so use them with caution and care, always treating people with dignity and respect they deserve.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

No one can hurt you without teaching a life's lesson. So accept it with love and kindness.

Debasish Mridha, M.D.

No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently.

Agnes de Mille

Nobody can be kinder than the narcissist while you react to life in his own terms.

Elizabeth Bowen

Nobody gets to live life backwards. Look ahead -- that's where your future lies.

Ann Landers

Nobody, as long as he moves about among the currents of life, is without trouble.

Carl Gustav Jung

Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued.

Socrates

Nothing is great like friendship on earth, No jewel No pearl has got it's worth. No one except a friend can be trusted, Your life will never ever get rusted.

Unknown

Often in life, you have to work on both fronts, dealing objectively with diametrically opposite premises, and then arriving at the best solution. The open mindedness enables you to be a realist who is also an optimist at heart. Strange as it may seem, you hope for the best, and also expect the worst at the same time. You operate in the real world with best positive attitude, while understanding fully well what is practically possible in a given situation. This synergistic combination of realistic optimism ( or optimistic realism) can help you to deal with problems in an effective and positive manner, in my view, especially during the challenging phases in life.
