.....the personal commitment to Integrity means: Speaking the honest truth at all times, even though it might hurt the listener, and create conflicts for you personally. It also means never to settle for anything less than what you deserve in your relationships with others. Living with Integrity is not easy, because she demands your total commitment to your personal values that must be higher than ordinary. She also expects you to make choices based on what you believe, and not what others tell you to believe. All being said, living with Integrity even for a day is million times better than countless years of life without her. A life with Integrity is the only life well lived, in my view. So go ahead, take that bold step, and live the life with Integrity.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

A person has three choices in life. You can swim against the tide and get exhausted, or you can tread water and let the tide sweep you away, or you can swim with the tide, and let it take you where it wants you to go.

Absurdities and Anomalies of Life always amaze and amuse me. Shared here are my favorite 21 mind-boggling dichotomies: (i) Only Certainty in this world is that there is nothing Certain, except death and taxes off course, (ii) Only Constant is the Change, (iii) The more you try to impress folks, the less impressed they will be, (iv) The more afraid you become of death, the less likely you wll enjoy life, (v) The more afraid you are to fail, the more likely you will fail, (vi) The more you fail, the more likely you will succeed, (vii) The harder you push for anything, the harder it will be to achieve, (viii) The more available anything is, the less likely you will want it, (ix) The more you learn, the more you realize your ignorance, (x) The more you argue with spouse or boss, the less likely you will win, (xi) The more you try to come close, the farther you will get pushed, (xii) The more choices you will have, the less satisfied you will be with any of those, (xiii) The more connected you get in social network, more isolated you will become, (xiv) The more you talk about your flaws, the more perfect you become in society's eyes, (xv) Peace is the only battle worth fighting for, (xvi) In order to better understand the world, you will have to turn away from it, (xvii) The more the people talk about something, the less they know about it, (xviii) The less someone cares about others, the less he cares about himself, (xix) the more you hate a trait in others, the more likely you are avoiding it in your own self, (xx) Those who can't trust others can't be trusted, and finally (xxi) No matter what it is, at the end of the day, the less is always the more.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

All swallows all. Life must eat life to survive.

Dejan Stojanovic

All the time we hear "Love is Blind." But it's not true. Blind is the Infatuation, while Love is All-seeing and All-accepting amazing aspect of life. Love is Strong and Permanent vis-a-vis Infatuation that is Fragile and Transitory. In my view, Love is like Silk, which is delicate, gentle, illuminating and soft - and yet so strong that no force on earth can tear it apart easily. Love is accepting each other for good qualities as well as flaws, and for strengths as much as weaknesses. Love is working together through the challenges of life, and overcoming obstacles with Synergy. I would summarize Love in three T's: Trust, Transparency and Teamwork.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Always be Honest and Truthful, even though it might hurt or create conflicts. Be in sync with your personal values, and make choices based on what you believe, and not on what others like. Live the life with Honesty, Truth and Integrity.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Always use your words with utmost caution, because at some stage in your life the only words you'll regret more than the ones left unspoken are the ones you used to intentionally and willingly hurt someone. Time and Words are most powerful, and neither of them can be taken back. Be nice to people - always!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

An epitome of the whole of life lies right in front of us, in the perpetual processes of re-oxidation and de-oxidation of the Hydrogens, within a single drop of water....that's also the essence of life on our Planet Earth and the Universe, by God's Grace.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can't ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it's already happened.

Douglas Couplan

And when the hourglass has run out, the hourglass of temporality, when the noise of secular life has grown silent and its restless or ineffectual activism has come to an end, when everything around you is still, as it is in eternity, then eternity asks you and every individual in these millions and millions about only one thing: whether you have lived in despair or not.

Soren Kierkegaard, "The Sickness Unto Death"

And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheefully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait... And as to you, Life, I reckon you are the leavings of many deaths, (No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before.)

Walt Whitman

Answer That you are here---that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

Walt Whitman
