.....in this world, you'll come across many people who will oppose you, and try to grind you down. Do not let them upset you or shake your confidence even a tiny bit. You must learn to derive your confidence and strength from their opposition. Paradoxical as it may sound to you, but that's the reality. Their obstacles will make you passionate, far more than ever before. Your critics will make you wise, foes will make you smart, and haters will keep you alert at all times. The key is to transform their negativity into positivity for yourself. Good luck!

....Faith is that tiny and beautiful songbird in one's heart that sings wonderful melodies even in the darkest moments, because it can feel and see the divine light that is yet to arrive with dawn. Faith enables us to believe in something that may be beyond any rationale, reasoning and logic. And Faith also our inner strength that empowers us to bring our dreams and vision to fruition, with the Grace of God. Take the leap in the unknown with full Faith in God and yourself.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Lao Tzu

Everyone should carefully observe which way his heart draws him, and then choose that way with all his strength.

Hasidic Saying

I do not ask to walk smooth paths nor bear an easy load. I pray for strength and fortitude to climb the rock strewn road. Give me such courage and I can scale the hardest peaks alone, And transform every stumbling block into a stepping stone.

Gale Brook Burket

Inflation is a force of pressure. If the socioeconomic system of a country is open and democratic, the pressure will dissipate via elections and peaceful change of government. On the other hand, if the system is closed, it might be able to contain the pressure for a while, but the pressure will continue to build up and at a certain point it will exceed the strength of the system causing it to crack. Rulers who learn from history and create a socioeconomic system that is open will achieve stability and continuity. Those who fight against these socioeconomic forces may win some battles in the short term, but they will lose the war.

Med Jones

It was a world which granted privileges to some and imposed prohibitions on others...Endowed with strength and eager to learn, one had to drag himself in a narrow prison cell when he could see an open field, a vast horizon in the distance; when he could feel the beatings of a heart; and when he believed himself entitled to enjoy the beauty of a dream.

Dr. Jose P. Rizal

Love and respect woman. Look to her not only for comfort, but for strength and inspiration and the doubling of your intellectual and moral powers. Blot out from your mind any idea of superiority you have none.

Giuseppe Mazzini

Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible.

Thomas a Kempis

Many of us are like Lotus flower that grows in the mud, and yet rises above the murkier muddy waters as an astoundingly beautiful flower, opening her petals one by one. The mud of adversities, challenges and obstacles don't stop her growth, but probably offer the nourishment and strength to rise above that mud. I often think that it's the strong desire, tenacity and perseverance of Lotus flower that must make her so unique in accomplishing way above and beyond the norms; because not everything that grows in the mud turns into an elegant Lotus flower. We must strive to build the same mental strength, perseverance and passion within - so as to grow above the mud of compelling circumstances, hardships, social rejections, and discriminations that we often experience in real world. Then only we will be able to transform into the eloquent Lotus flowers, gently opening our soft splendid petals one by one to make our world most beautiful.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

My freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful the more narrowly I limit my field of action and the more I surround myself with obstacles. Whatever diminishes constraint diminishes strength. The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one's self of the chains that shackle the spirit.

Igor Stravinsky

No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come.

Victor Hugo

No matter how old you are, there are certain moments in life when you need your father's hand and your mother's lap to comfort you, to give you the strength to fight and win against the odds. And no matter how old you become, or wherever you may be in this world, you'll realize that your father's hand and your mother's lap will always be there to comfort you and protect you throughout your life. No science or logic can explain this, for these are the matters of love and faith that defy all norms.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.

Albert Einstein

Scars are not something one should feel embarrassed about, and something one should try to hide. In my view, scars are really beautiful, because they show what you've been through, and how you've come out successfully through that challenging phase of your life. Your scars represent your courage, determination, endurance, and strength. And that's why they are so beautiful.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Success often breeds Success. Successful people associate with and learn from successful people. And that's how a lion goes from strength to strength. Success, however, must be managed wisely, because historically Success has ruined more people than failures. Good luck!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.

Kahlil Gibran

The phrase "Survival of the fittest" was first coined by Herbert Spencer in his "Principles of Biology" (1864) after reading Charles Darwin's theory of "natural selection" discussed in "On the Origin of Species" by Darwin - published in the same year. Five years later, Darwin first used Spencer's new phrase "Survival of the fittest" alongside his phrase "natural selection" in his fifth edition of "On the Origin of Species", published in 1869. It's interesting to note that "fittest" is often misconstrued as either the strongest of the species or the most intelligent species, which is neither an accurate description nor the interpretation desired by Darwin in his theory. In actuality, the fittest species is the one that is the most adaptable to change. In other words, those who can become most well adapted to current environment and the changes therein, can have the chance and opportunity to survive. Darwin's theory of natural selection teaches us that it's absolutely important to welcome the change, and manage the change for survival and for becoming the winner. It's really interesting that being the most adaptable to change often outweighs the strength and intelligence factors, contrary to the common understanding of life and the phrase "Survival of the fittest.

The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure.

Albert Einstein

There are those people today who live the same life, day in day out, predictable, risk free, dreamless, they are the harshest critics of those who strive to break free from this mundane existence. In this world, too many people are afraid to pursue the life they truly desire, too afraid of being criticised by others, too afraid of failing, too afraid of not knowing the way. However there are also those who choose to follow their dreams, those who choose to rebel, those who strive to be free, those who live. Stay true to yourself; break free from the chains of society and live.May you too have the strength and courage to pursue your dreams.

Roger Chao

There is a latent fire inside all of us, which is constantly burning with brightness and brilliance that guides us - all the time, and especially during the darkest moments of life. Those divine sparks of intelligence, beauty and elegance within all of us provide us with strength and courage to face the adversities. In my view, we survive through life's challenges, mainly because our inner intense fire is burning lot more strongly and brightly than the fires that are surrounding us outside. Life is thus nothing but a game of heat and light that we create, in my view, and play to win with focus and determination by driving away the chilling cold and deepest darkness around us.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

To me, a Horse symbolizes top five attributes that a man constantly desires: Confidence, Determination, Potency, Power and Strength.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

To me, Good Friday represents one of the most important events in the evolution of religious beliefs and humanity, not only for Christianity but for mankind in general, for it represents the greatest sacrifice by Jesus Christ as much as the exceptional suffering and passion in Jesus Christ’s‘ life. This sentence by Jesus Christ, “Father, forgive them they know not what they do.“, signifies the ultimate and the highest level of forgiving despite the venomous actions and horrible sins of enemies. Good Friday is the special day for meditation on the sufferings and sacrifices made by Jesus Christ for mankind, and most importantly, for gathering the strength to forgive one’s worst enemies regardless of their unacceptable actions.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
