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.
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.
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.
We know that wherever we are today is nothing but the result of the choices we made at every juncture in our past. Sometimes we surprisingly discover that even the "wrong choices" from the past have brought us to the right places.....and that's what makes life most interesting IMHO!
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!
We often hear that Time heals all wounds. It's a misconception, in my view. Some wounds can be very deep and way beyond any healing process. Most of the wounds, given enough time, turn into scars. And the pain lessens, but it never goes away. Somewhere deep inside, we must feel it, still alive and afresh! Never walk away from your innermost feelings, no matter how painful those may be; because that's the reality of life we must accept and manage effectively. Good luck, my friend!
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.
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!
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.
Weaknesses are not something to hide or be ashamed of, because within each weakness lies a promise of new opportunity to improve. Life is never meant to be easy, especially for those who dream. Recognizing the weakness and the latent potential opportunity to improve would raise you right away beyond that weakness - to a better version of yourself, enabling you to make your dreams come true. Good luck, my friend!
What do I do? I am so sick of being alone. Not having someone else who can share my company. No one to go to when I’m alone or feeling down. Everyone else has had someone at one point. Felt the joy of another human’s touch. But not I. For I have yet to feel the warm embrace of the opposite sex. Still with no idea what a simple kiss is like. And yet there are others who partake in far greater bounties than I can ever imagine. Worse yet, they lack intelligence and haven’t the slightest idea what they have. They take things for granted and don’t have a care in the world. But it is all fine in the end. For there is an eternal balance to everything that happens. They may have their forbidden fruit, but it is that very thing that has poisoned their minds and made them oblivious to the truths of life. The hidden wonders that can only be learned over time. Between the two I prefer my scenario. I may miss out on wonderful bounties now, but they become available to everyone eventually. And I am very patient. Besides, by waiting just a little longer I can understand things now that will take them years to even think of. I count myself lucky. If not in society’s eye but in my eye. Because I know that in the future everything will work out for the better. Such is the way of things to always have a balance. One day I will be with that person. That one special someone to share my life and happiness with. So, what do I do? Well, I am going to wait. Not forever, but for that opportune time when I know I will be able to change everything. I will wait and endure the status quo to one day experience the balance. I have told you what I will do. Now, what will you do?
What is the meaning of human life, or of organic life altogether To answer this question at all implies a religion. Is there any sense then, you ask, in putting it I answer, the man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified for life.
What's the big deal if you're different? It's perfectly okay to be different, because at least you're genuine and not a shallow imitation. The truth is that you're yourself, and that's why you're different. Celebrate your differentness with joy. Always be yourself, and don't try to keep on changing, because eventually some you'll run out of new things to become. Be yourself, and don't waste time to be what 'they' like you to be; because you'll never win them all. Be yourself, because all others, especially the good ones, are already taken. Be yourself, and you'll be happy. Always Keep It Simple & Straightforward (KISS), and you'll enjoy life. Cheers!
Whatever I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well whatever I have devoted myself to, I have devoted myself completely in great aims and in small I have always thoroughly been in earnest.
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.
