Referring to writer and publisher T.R. Threston (Tina Threston): In life there are those who talk, talk, talk and nothing gets done. Then there are the ones that do and look for glory because of what they did. Then there are the true good hearts in the world and Tina is one them! I curse and spit on anyone that ever doubts Tina's words, generosity or intentions! If they do, clearly they do not know her and they do not deserve to know her!

Contessa Bianca Bertolli

Regarding the famous"glass half-full or half-empty" case, I have often wondered about the full focus and total emphasis on the glass and its contents. It's possible that when the focus is on half-empty or half-full glass, it becomes too difficult to notice a full pitcher sitting right next to that half-empty or half-full glass. And if you do have a full pitcher available, then does it matter whether the glass is half-full or half-empty? Life offers you millions of opportunities besides what you already have in your hands, in real world. So it's always smart to think about and grab the full pitcher that can fill up the glass several times over, instead of getting worked up about the half-full or half-empty glass. Look for the full pitcher, and enjoy the party! Cheers!

Remember that life is not measured in hours but in accomplishments.

James A. Pike

Rest not Life is sweeping by go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.

Johann von Goethe

Scars are neither something one should feel embarrassed about, nor something one should try to hide. Scars are beautiful, in my view, because they show what you've been through, and how you've come out of that challenging phase of life. Your scars represent your courage, determination and endurance, and that's why they are so beautiful.

Scars are not something one should feel embarrassed about, and something one should try to hide. In my view, scars are really beautiful, because they show what you've been through, and how you've come out successfully through that challenging phase of your life. Your scars represent your courage, determination, endurance, and strength. And that's why they are so beautiful.

Schrodinger's Cat is a classic example of Paradox, in my view. In actuality, it was a Gedankenexperiment or a Thought Experiment, created by Austrian Physicist Erwin Schrodinger in 1935. Not many folks are probably aware that Schrodinger himself called that experiment “a ridiculous case.” Here’s the "Schrodinger's Cat" in Schrodinger's own words: “A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): In a Geiger Counter, there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none. If it (i.e. decay) happens, the Geiger Counter discharges and through a relay releases a hammer that shatters a small flask of Hydrogen Cyanide. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has (undergone) radioactive decay.” So you see, the cat's life or death truly depends on the formation of a subatomic alpha particle that triggers off the avalanche of electrons in the Geiger Counter. There is an equal probability that it may not happen, and hence the cat should remain both alive and dead per Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Philosophically speaking, Human Life is full of paradoxes, and we often find that the uncertainties therein bear a startling resemblance with Schrodinger's Cat experiment. The total randomness of events that shape our human lives, and determinedly control the outcome (i.e. future) can be extremely perplexing and equally thought-provoking as Schrodinger's Cat experiment....a pre-written and pre-destined Reductio ad absurdum perhaps!

Self-respect is the best and greatest gift you'll give to yourself. The self-respect builds the strongest self-control, self-dignity, self-discipline, and highest self-esteem that enables you to never settle for anything less, and importantly, to walk away from anything or anyone that undervalues you, and treats you as a second choice. Never forget that you don't need anyone who doesn’t treat you with dignity and respect. Lead your life the best way, powered with Self-respect; and the world will respect you.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Self-respect is the most important aspect of human life, and the cornerstone of all virtues. It is also the starting point of cultivating the beauty in women and the courage in men. Never lose your Self-respect, and never allow anyone to violate its sacredness for any price.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Self-respect is the most important aspect of human life. Never lose it and never allow anyone to violate its sacredness. If anyone treats you as an option, narrow her/his choices by removing yourself out of her/his equation, because being there is simply not worth it.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

She is a wife who is notable in her house; she is a wife who beareth children; she is a wife whose husband is as her life; she is a wife who is obedient to her lord. The wife is half the man; a wife is man?s dearest friend; a wife is the source of his religion, his worldly profit, and his love. He who hath a wife maketh offerings in his house. Those who have wives are blest with good fortune. Wives are friends, who, by their kind and gentle speech, soothe you in your retirement. In your distresses they are as mothers, and they are refreshment to those who are travellers in the rugged paths of life.

Mahabharata

Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

Eddie Cantor

So, throughout life, our worst weaknesses and meannesses are usually committed for the sake of the people whom we most despise.

Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Social climbers are a bit like rats. You know you should avoid them, but, somehow one or two manage to sneak into your life anyhow.

T.R. Threston

Something that is said with the word “YOU” is truly heard by a very few and, that too, listened only of someone who leads a very simple life and regularly says the things refreshingly new because “YOU” has a tone and texture of an ADVICE, which everyone tries to give than take from others as almost all consider themselves to be WISE.

Anuj Somany

Sometimes in life, you've to let go of things that are not meant for you, no matter how wonderful those may be or how deeply you loved them. It's most important to do it gracefully, respectfully, and with remarkable dignity that you'll be proud of later.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Henry Bromel
