It's a misconception that Purity and Sanctity are only prerogatives of saints, and are not absolutely necessary for normal people. In my view, leading ultra-pure life with purity in thoughts, words, and actions surely define one's character. What's more, the Purity is an essential requisite and a most important criterion for defining a normal person. The disrespect or disregard to Purity and Sanctity is only the deviation from normal behavior IMHO. Strive to lead an ultra-pure life, in your thoughts, words and actions - always!
It's better to live a day selflessly helping the world than living too many years of life selfishly helping no one but self. Life is not just about the number of breaths we take - but about the number of moments and our actions that take the breath away and advance the mankind.
It's important to remember that when Wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when Health is lost, something is lost; but when Character is lost, everything is lost. My friend, lead your life with Truth, Honesty and Character -always!
It's so easy to "talk the talk" than walk the walk. I sometimes wonder how many of these Quoters "walk the talk", and follow their quotes with actions in their own lives. We must always do what we say, because that brings the true meaning and purpose to life.
It's true that nobody can go back in time and make a better start; but surely anybody can start from now and make an absolutely fabulous finish. For an optimist, life offers millions of opportunities at every juncture, anywhere, any time. Make the most of "Now" - always!
Jesus' ministry was clearly defined, and the alternatives to the illusion and temptations of the desert were spelled out. A choice was made--life abundant, full, and free for all. Make no mistake about it, the day that choice was made, Jesus became suspect. That day in the temple he sealed the fate already prepared for him. How was the world to understand one who rejected an offer of power and control
Knowing your self-worth is extremely important in life. You'll gain a great respect from everyone, only when you stand cofident in your own worth, stay firm with your values, and never settle for anything less.
Life bears an astonishingly closer resemblance to the boxing game IMHO. You see, in a boxing game, the boxer is declared defeated not when he has fallen but when he has refused to get up. That's why in life it doesn't matter how many times you fall; yet what matters in reality is how often you get up and rise. Good luck, my friend!
Life goes through changes so fast, you think your life is great, than one of your best friends dies. Then you think you found someone you truly love, only to figure out, she doesn't love you back. You cry and cry and cry, but nothing changes. You realize, that you must accept things for what they are, and what they have made you become.Everything in life changes you in some way. Even the smallest things. If you do not accept these changes, you do not accept yourself. For through these changes brings new and greater things to you, making you wiser, as time progresses. To avoid these changes is a loss. You only live your life once. Do not waste a minute of it avoiding things. Let them come to you, and learn from them. There's always tomorrow.
