An epitome of the whole of life lies right in front of us, in the perpetual processes of re-oxidation and de-oxidation of the Hydrogens, within a single drop of water....that's also the essence of life on our Planet Earth and the Universe, by God's Grace.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

An epitome of the whole of life on Earth lies right in front of us, in the perpetual processes of re-oxidation and de-oxidation of the Hydrogens in a drop of water.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can't ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it's already happened.

Douglas Couplan

And when the hourglass has run out, the hourglass of temporality, when the noise of secular life has grown silent and its restless or ineffectual activism has come to an end, when everything around you is still, as it is in eternity, then eternity asks you and every individual in these millions and millions about only one thing: whether you have lived in despair or not.

Soren Kierkegaard, "The Sickness Unto Death"

And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheefully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait... And as to you, Life, I reckon you are the leavings of many deaths, (No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before.)

Walt Whitman

Answer That you are here---that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

Walt Whitman

Any woman who has a career and a family automatically develops something in the way of two personalities, like two sides of a dollar bill, each different in design. ... Her problem is to keep one from draining the life from the other.

Ivy Baker Priest

As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.

M. Cartmill

At the close of life the question will be not how much have you got, but how much have you given nor how much have you won, but how much have you done not how much have you saved, but how much have you sacrificed how much have you loved and served, not how much were you honored.

Nathan C. Schaeffer

Be still sad heart and cease repining;
Behind the clouds the sun is shining,
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life a little rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

Longfellow

Be yourself! Dare to respect yourself before anyone else! Self-respect is the precursor to Courage. Most people realize soon that one of the major regrets of life is yielding to the wishes of others, instead of doing what their heart desired most, and not being themselves. So be yourself, and you'll never regret.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Bear in mind that you should conduct yourself in life as at a feast.

Epictetus

Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Beauty, Elegance, Grace and Truth in the Universe don't lie outside, but are always inside - within the brilliance of our mind and the brightness in our heart. Always maintain it, rekindle it, and never let it fade away or die. The dichotomy of life is that we must seek Beauty, Elegance, Grace and Truth within first, so as to understand the outside that is often without.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Blame someone else and get on with your life.

Alan Woods

Boyhood, like measles, is one of those complaints which a man should catch young and have done with, for when it comes in middle life it is apt to be serious.

P. G. Wodehouse

Can anyone really calm the Storm? It's not even worth trying, but surely one can calm oneself. And the Storm will pass. The same applies to various challenging and life-changing phases that one encounters unexpectedly. The reality is that nothing is forever, except those "Forever" postage stamps. Everything shall pass away, the good, the bad and the ugly too. All one can do is to stay calm and ride the storm, with complete and strong faith in God. It's true that sometimes, God brings the greatest rains with a storm; and likewise, God also brings the greatest blessings to you, with your difficulty.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Challenges are what make life interesting overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.

Joshua J. Marine

Change is the law of life; and those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.

John F. Kennedy

Character is the most important and differentiating aspect of human life. In my view, when Wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when Health is lost, something is lost; but when Character is lost, everything is lost. You can judge the Character of a woman/man by how she/he treats fellow people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people and animals who can't fight back. Character is the biggest asset, so don't lose it for any price.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Chester Pullman is simply one of the most generous human beings I've ever had the pleasure of meeting in my life. To me, he is an American treasure!

Contessa Bianca Bertolli

Commit yourself to a dream... Nobody who tries to do something great but fails is a total failure. Why Because he can always rest assured that he succeeded in life's most important battle--he defeated the fear of trying.

Dr. Robert Schuller

Compromise, if not the spice of life, is its solidity. It is what makes nations great and marriages happy.

Phyllis McGinley

Cosmos is God, who whispered the syllable of life.

Dejan Stojanovic

Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things Knows not the livid loneliness of fear.

Amelia Earhart
