If life was fair, Elvis would be alive and all the impersonators would be dead.

Johnny Carson

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

If there was strife and contention in the home, very little else in life could compensate for it.

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm any hostility.

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.

Marcus Garvey

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.

Bryant McGill

If you take care of the small things, the big things take care of themselves. You can gain more control over your life by paying closer attention to the little things.

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson

If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.

Amit Ray

If you want to endure life, prepare yourself for death.

Sigmund Freud, his essay on war & death

If you want to forget something, you've to learn to let go. If you dislike something, you must let go that thing. If you don't, that very thing will live with you for ever, carved in your mind, and flowing in your veins. Time and Life are extremely precious to waste on something you dislike. So let go the things that are heavy and burdensome, the things that you dislike. Let your journey continue - upwards and onwards!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal. Not to people or things.

Albert Einstein

In all the affairs of life, social as well as political, courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest to the grateful and appreciating heart.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

In order to write about life, first you must live it!

Ernest Hemingway

In the end the aggressors always destroy themselves, making way for others who know how to cooperate and get along. Life is much less a competitive struggle for survival than a triumph of cooperation and creativity.

Fritjof Capra

In the journey of life, you'll always meet some people who will try to bring you down, tell bad things about you behind your back, humiliate or insult you in public, and make you feel small. Do not let them win, at any cost. Illegitimi non carborundum. Think of those mean and rude people as the sand paper that may scratch you, but at the end you'll come out smooth, polished and shining. And guess what? Those mean and rude people will just get worn out, dirtier, filthier and uglier than they were before criticizing you. You're the wonderful Winner who takes it all, and they're the lousy Losers standing small. You will be the one to laugh last and the longest. Cheer up, my friend.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life it goes on.

Robert Frost

Interestingly all people are born unique, but most people die copies! Take charge of your life. Lead your life the way you want it to be, and not the way others would like it to be. Life is always what you make out of it, so make it worthwhile and beautiful by following your values and principles. Cheers!

Interestingly, Paleo Diet is getting extremely popular nowadays. It's also known as: Caveman Diet, Stone Age Diet and Hunter-Gatherer Diet. It's basically the diet that includes raw wild plants and animals eaten by human beings during the Paleolithic era (that ended 10,000 years ago.) It's an interesting dichotomy, imho, in light of the fact that most cavemen actually died as early as the age of 25. During that era, very few could make it anywhere close to the modern day life expectancy of 85 to 95 in many countries. There is absolutely no good alternative to balanced good diet, be it Paleo or otherwise, and most importantly, refraining from smoking and drinking excessively. Have a wonderful healthy life!
