Whatever we are today has emerged from our thoughts, actions and choices of yesterday; and likewise, our present choices will build our life tomorrow. Thus, our life is constructed by our own hands, and our future is the creation of our mind. We are truly the master of our Destiny.
When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, this understanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time: once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially, mio caro. For you, our children, our brothers and sisters. And for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life, and keeps us guessing. Endless affection, mia Sofia. Forever yours, Ezio Auditore.
When life gives you lemons, you don’t make lemonade. You use the seeds to plant a whole orchard and build a new lemonade brand… an entire franchise. Or you could just stay on the bus and drink lemonade someone else has made, from a can.
When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.
When you will be sailing happily in the blue ocean, thinking that life is all fun. Precisely at that moment still, you will be attracted by Siren's lethal skill. Never forget that Siren is the creature of the Fey, who will ruthlessly steal your heart away. Don't ever dare to look into her beautiful eyes, you will be left alone with your sad sighs and pitiful cries. In the journey of life, Siren's call comes with a price to pay, for the poor sailor who loses his life to that beautiful creature of the Fey.
With Age comes the Experience and Expertise. Most importantly, it empowers one with a clear vision to see through the hour glass of life, as more sand has already escaped through it with time. Like an early morning dream, life becomes brighter, clearer, and much less mysterious the longer one lives. It's also the wonderful phase of crisp creativity and innovative inventions, in my view, because even the crooked paths start to appear straighter the longer one travels on those. Just like wine, even people mature with age, and offer their best to the world, more so than ever before. Cheers to Age, and exceptional Experience that comes with it!
You laugh, and the world laughs with you. You cry, and you cry alone. You sing, and the mountains would echo you. You sigh, and it's lost in air. You rejoice, and the world will seek you. You grieve, and the world will walk away. You can be in sync with the world, its people and nature around you. You are the origin, and you are the center of your happiness and well being. So be thankful and enjoy life, each and every day as it comes to you. Cheer up, my friend!
You must have ability and willingness to forgive others. If you do not have these capabilities yet, you must develop them....sooner you do it, better it will be for you. Lest you forget, Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong minded and spiritually advanced folks. Also, without fotgiveness, you cannot move on in life at right pace. How can you with so much unnecessary baggage of grudges sitting on your back? With your power to forgive, your life stream will begin to flow once again, in sync with present and embracing future. Drop that baggage right away, break away from unpleasant memories and situations, make a wish, take a chance, and move on upwards and onwards. Let the life flow, and the journey continues once again, smoothly and seamlessly.
You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe.
You say I'm worthless yet you waste your time on me. You say i can't do anything right but you still waste your breath on me. You tell me I'm stupid yet you still try to teach me. You tell me to live my life yet you give me no life to live?
