Creation and cultivation of Beauty doesn’t happen without tremendous Endurance. True Beauty is often emerged out of Chaos and Turbulence. Look at the eruptions of Volcanoes and shaking of Earth that give birth to beautiful mountains and scenic lakes. Think of those amazingly attractive Stalactites formed only after continuous erosion by slow dripping water. Something far superior, magnificent, better and beautiful always appears out of otherwise ordinary - only after enduring the colossal Chaos, frightening Fury, traumatizing Turbulence and disturbing Disorder within the stagnant Status Quo. That’s the reality of life! So, accept and endure the changes, no matter how chaotic, stormy and irrational they may seem to you today. You are chosen by Supreme Powers to Create and Cultivate the Beauty, something that never existed before – only through your exceptional Endurance. And I am sure that you will, my friend, pass this test with flying colors. You’ve done it before, and you’ll do it again. Go on, and break a leg!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Henry Miller

Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement. There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for planning. No time for future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future, and so they spent more time thinking about it. About the future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future --you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college.

John Green

Mind you, if you keep on worrying or regretting, you can't and won't help your condition. Rather, you will end up worsening it. But, when you cast all your worries on God. He will surely put his peace or calmness in your heart and life and as well he will take care of you. Yes of course, he can and he will surely take care of you. So, quit worrying or regretting over and over again.

Emeasoba George

Do everything in life with passion. Amazing artists, brilliant inventors, and wonderful writers reach the highest levels in their fields because of their passion. Without passion, life is like an empty and hollow seashell lying in the sand. It's the Passion that brings Life into everything that you do in life. Cheers!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Do not assume that she who seeks to comfort you now, lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. Her life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, she would never have been able to find these words.

Dream your life and live your dream!

Gordana Biernat

During my childhood in India, I was brought up to believe that if you are gifted with talents, those talents are not yours - because they come to you straight from God. It's not a chance or an accident that you have the special gifts and talents. You should leverage those God-gifted talents for the purpose of advancing society and mankind, and importanly, for helping others who are in dire need. Life is a give-and-take process. The more you will give back to society, the more you shall receive from God. This upbringing and philosophy of life have kept my feet firmly on the ground. I am truly grateful to my parents and teachers who guided me with such wonderful lessons of life and humanity.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

During my childhood, we were tought by our parents and teachers to treat all older women as mothers and younger women as sisters. We were tought to believe that women, just like men, are created in the image of God, and hence must be treated with love, dignity and respect they rightfully deserve. Those life lessons from childhood still remain close to my heart, regardless of time, place or society that I live in. I do hope that we will continue to teach the same precious lessons to our children even today, so that they will always see and treat every woman with respect and dignity, throughout their lives - as their own mother or sister or daughter, as God's divine image, and not as an object of desire to be ogled and fantasized about. In my view, real men treat women with dignity and respect - always!
