TO BE is life's dilemma while facing the eternity of death.

Sorin Cerin

To lengthen thy Life, lessen thy meals

Benjamin Franklin

To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions.

Deepak Chopra

To mature means to take responsibility for your life, to be on your own. Psychoanalysis fosters the infantile state by considering that the past is responsible for the illness.

Fritz Perls

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, and if you screw that up, you can start again tomorrow.

Ingrid Weir

Today, I am pleased to share the best knowledge and philosophy for life, from Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna. It is as follows: “The man who sees me in everything and everything within me will not be lost to me, nor will I ever be lost to him. He who is rooted in oneness realizes that I am in every being; wherever he goes, he remains in me. When he sees all being as equal in suffering or in joy because they are like himself, that man has grown perfect in yoga.”

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday

John Wayne

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight, very clean. When it arrives it is perfect. It puts itself in our hands. It hopes we learned something from yesterday.

Unknown, Epitaph on headstone of actor John Wayne (author unknown)

Tomorrow's life is too late. Live today.

Marcus Valerius Martialis

Truth adds strength to our mind,courage to our heart,happiness to our soul and empowerment, motivation and inspiration to feel the best in our enriching life.

Anuj Somany

Two roads may diverge in a yellow wood, and I - I will choose neither one. Instead I'll create my own road to follow my own convictions and dreams. After all, any road is only a road - unless and until you make something of it. Just like that Life is full of choices, and yet Life is also what you make of it. Every learning and every wisdom that I will gain in my journey, will leave the leaves trodden black. And that's what will make the difference.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Unless a man believes in himself and makes a total commitment to his career and puts everything he has into it - his mind, his body, his heart - what's life worth to him

Vince Lombardi

Use your imagination not to scare yourself to death but to inspire yourself to life.

Adele Brookman

We all know that the life in real world is inherently risky. Those who are not willing to take the risks always settle for the ordinary, and the life also rewards them with what they settle for - the ordinary. On the other hand, those who take the risks, and jump off the cliffs, find that they build their wings on the way down. Life rewards these risk-takers and cliff-jumpers with Success that is beyond any measures - the extraordinary. That's why, in my view, the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one having best ideas or better abilities, but the courage one demonstrates by taking a risk to take a risk and win. History remembers these risk-takers and their extraordinary accomplishments, and forgets the squeamish non-achievers. Never be afraid to take the risks, and diving into unknown oceans. After all, pearls don't lie on the seashore, and you must dive for it into deep ocean if you want one. Go on, take a leap into uncertainty, and you'll see your wings opening on your way down. You may see a net appearing too, but you must take that leap first. Never settle for anything less. You won't regret, because only those who take risks win in this world. All the best!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

We are each responsible for our own life - no other person is or even can be.

Oprah Winfrey

We are here to add to the sum of human goodness. To prove the thing exists. And however futile each individual act of courage or generosity, self-sacrifice or grace-it still proves the thing exists. Each act adds to the fund. It needs replenishment. Not only because evil flourishes, and is, most indefensibly, defended. But because goodness is no longer a respectable aim in life. The hound of hell, envy, has driven it from the house.

Josephine Hart, "Sin"

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

Plato

We cannot put off living until we are ready. The most salient characteristic of life is its coerciveness it is always urgent, 'here and now,' without any possible postponement. Life is fired at us point-blank.

Jose Ortega y Gasset

We die with a notice. Notice, this is our life. (Nous mourons avec un préavis. Le préavis, c'est notre vie)

Charles de LEUSSE

We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Thomas Jefferson

We knit alone our life, before seeing by it our shroud. (Nous tricotons notre vie seule, Avant d'y voir notre linceul)

Charles de LEUSSE

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.

Winston Churchill

We must have the courage to bet on our ideas, to take the calculated risk, and to act. Everyday living requires courage if life is to be effective and bring happiness.

Maxwell Maltz

We mustn't be afraid of change. Having said that, many people still are. They often feel very cmfortable in their comfort zone, and secure in the pond that are used to all their life. They never dare to venture out of the stagnant pond, and they never know the existance of ocean. And they are happy in theirignorance. Being comfotable with status quo is the very reason why many people don't have anything better in life. It's not the Karma, Kismet, Serendpity or Destiny. It's their own doing, and reaping exactly what they sow. Never be afraid of changes and challenges of life. It's for your good - almost always!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

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.
