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 need not fear life, because God is the Ruler of all and we need not fear death, because He shares immortality with us.

Eppie Friedman

We often marry in despair, so that we repent of it all our life after.

Molière

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.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

We only seem to learn from Life that Life doesn't matter so much as it seemed to do -- it's not so burningly important, after all, what happens. We crawl, like blinking sea-creatures, out of the Ocean onto a spur of rock, we creep over the promontory bewildered and dazzled and hurting ourselves, then we drop in the ocean on the other side: and the little transit doesn't matter so much.

D. H. Lawrence

We pay a heavy price for our fear of failure. It is a powerful obstacle to growth. It assures the progressive narrowing of the personality and prevents exploration and experimentation. There is no learning without some difficulty and fumbling. If you want to keep on learning, you must keep on risking failure all your life.

John W. Gardner

We rarely find anyone who can say he has lived a happy life, and who, content with his life, can retire from the world like a satisfied guest.

Horace

We respond to a drama to that extent to which it corresponds to our dream life.

David Mamet

We seek the comfort of another. Someone to share our dreams and to share in the life we choose. Someone to help us through the neverending attempt to understand ourselves. And in the end, someone to comfort us along the way.

Marlin Finch Lupus

We should all have the freedom to die with majesty in an unworthy life which was subjected to sin and vanity.

Sorin Cerin

We should always think about and focus on the things that we can control, and not the things that are beyond our control. In my view, Life is like a game of cards, and the hand we are dealt is Determinism; while the way we will play it is Free Will. Let's aim to make it a good one!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning.

Henry Ward Beecher

We stare into the fire of life, the flame of the soul, Yet we stand, so far away, Basking in the eternal energy that flows from within it, We stand back, too scared to approach the flames.

Unknown

We succeed only as we identify in life, or in war, or in anything else, a single overriding objective, and make all other considerations bend to that one objective.

Dwight D Eisenhower

We trained hard, but it seemed every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising, and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.

From Petronii Arbitri Satyricon AD 66 (Attributed to Gaius Petronus, a Roman General who later committed suicide)

We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised.  I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising: and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress, while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.

Caius Petronius, Roman Consul, 66 A.D.

We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising, and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress, while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.

Gaius Petronius

Wealth and children are the adornment of life.

Koran

Well I am not sure about the secret to long life but I can tell you I met a teacher called Meekin a short time back he whispered something to me that made me laugh so hard I wet myself. I recommend everyone wet themselves with laughter once in their life.”

Esther Vickery

Well, as you know, there are many things in life that are not fair, that wealthy people can afford and poor people cant. But I dont believe that the Federal Government should take action to try to make these opportunities exactly equal, particularly when there is a moral factor involved.

Jimmy Carter

Were it not Folly, Spider-like to spin The Thread of present Life away to win - What? for ourselves, who know not if we shall Breathe out the very Breath we now breathe in.

Mette Ljosland

What a crazy world we live in Trying to treat addiction as a legal problem, and trying to treat criminal misbehaviors using guns as a medical problem Beam me up, Scotty. Ain't no intelligent life down here.

Julie Cochrane

What a life! True life is elsewhere. We are not in the world.

Arthur Rimbaud

What a mistake to suppose that the passions are strongest in youth The passions are not stronger, but the control over them is weaker They are more easily excited, they are more violent and apparent but they have less energy, less durability, less intense and concentrated power than in the maturer life.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton

What a mistake to suppose that the passions are strongest in youth! The passions are not stronger, but the control over them is weaker! They are more easily excited, they are more violent and apparent; but they have less energy, less durability, less intense and concentrated power than in the maturer life.
