There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?

There comes a phase in life, at least once in a lifetime, when one finds himsef/herself totally alone...so utterly alone that one must withdraw into one's innermost self. there is no other option but to endure that bitter suffering. When one overcomes that overpowering solitude, one is no longer alone. Through this solitude and the soul searching, we find that our innermost self is the divine spark of life, the indivisible spirit that comes from the Supreme Power - God. And after that moment of self-realization, the awakening from material world, we find ourselves in the midst of the chaos of this world, and yet totally undisturbed by its multiplicity, fully in sync and accepting the world as is - because our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.

There is a form of laughter that springs from the heart, heard every day in the merry voice of childhood, the expression of a laughter -- loving spirit that defies analysis by the philosopher, which has nothing rigid or mechanical in it, and totally without social significance. Bubbling spontaneously from the heart of child or man. Without egotism and full of feeling, laughter is the music of life.

William Osler

There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. It is vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, peace, peacebut there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

Patrick Henry

There is a latent fire inside all of us, which is constantly burning with brightness and brilliance that guides us - all the time, and especially during the darkest moments of life. Those divine sparks of intelligence, beauty and elegance within all of us provide us with strength and courage to face the adversities. In my view, we survive through life's challenges, mainly because our inner intense fire is burning lot more strongly and brightly than the fires that are surrounding us outside. Life is thus nothing but a game of heat and light that we create, in my view, and play to win with focus and determination by driving away the chilling cold and deepest darkness around us.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
