I've always believed in education and in good teaching that is guided by truth. But after a lifetime of educational pursuit, I now ask, what is true education and who decides on what is good teaching? This search has taken me through the spiritual, the delusional, social, physical, the psychological, the philosophical -- and back again. And I have made the most important educational discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my whole life: It is only through kindness that any true lesson can be taught and that I'm only here to help my students find that kindness. They are all my education, they are all my good teaching, they are my truth, they are my kindness.

Paul. F. Meekin

I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x y is play and z is keeping your mouth shut.

Albert Einstein

If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.

If only the ugly duckling had known her differentness would be an awesome asset some day, her earlier life would have been much smoother and enjoyable. We should be happy if we are different, because it's our differentiating differentness that will make a huge difference in the world and advance the humankind. You may be an ugly duckling today in the eyes of society, but you are the beautiful white swan of tomorrow. You are the Star today that will be Supernova tomorrow, illuminating and dazzling the universe as never before. Enjoy and celebrate your differentness today, and think positvely about tomorrow -always!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

If someone has stolen your idea or taken undue credit for your work, don't let it upset you. Learn from that experience and move on as swiftly as you can. Life is too short to dwell in the past, and fall in the trap of self-pity and misery. In my experience, those who steal the credit and ideas of others shamelessly, often don't realize that they are actually increasing their bad "Karma" by their wrongdoings, and that bad Karma quickly catches up with them in no time. Be assured! Time takes care in sweet and mysterious ways - always! Never forget that nobody will ever be able to steal or take away your creativity, ingenuity, and inventive mind, even though they may have stolen your one idea at one time only. Your divine spark of intelligence will continue to illuminate the world, even after losing that one idea - because surely there's plenty more where that came from!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.

George Eliot

If we insist that public life be reserved for those whose personal history is pristine, we are not going to get paragons of virtue running our affairs. We will get the very rich, who contract out the messy things in life the very dull, who have nothing to hide and nothing to show and the very devious, expert at covering their tracks and ambitious enough to risk their discovery.

Charles Krauthammer

If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer’s day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation.

Anthon St Maarten

If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don't have it, no matter what else there is, it's not enough.

Ann Landers

If you have no confidence in self you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence you have won even before you started.

If you have not been served personally by caring hands in your own life, do not be bitter, but instead, ask yourself who you can now serve.
