Some chapters in the Book of Life tell of tragedy, others of triumph. Some chapters are dull and others are exciting. The key to being a success in life is to never stop on a difficult page, to never quit a tough chapter. Champions have the courage to keep turning the pages because they know a better chapter lies ahead.
Everyone can be great because anyone can serve.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
In this world, there are only two kinds of people who can be happy and successful.
One, who believe that God is almighty...then whatever good - bad, sin - virtue,
all is happening as per his will; the matter ends. Second, who believe that God
doesn't exist at all and take up all their responsibilities by themselves, again the
matter ends. But since all of us are stuck hanging between the two, we end up
being sad and unsuccessful.
- Deep Trivedi
Both the good and the pleasant present themselves to a man. The calm soul examines them well and discriminates. Yes, he prefers the good to the pleasant; but the fool chooses the pleasant out of greed and avarice.
Life isn't as serious as the mind makes it out to be.
- Eckhart Tolle
Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.
- Charles Spurgeon
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
- Alphonse De Lamartine
A lie will easily get you out of a scrape, and yet, strangely and beautifully, rapture possesses you when you have taken the scrape and left out the lie.
- Charles Edward Montague
Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being.
- Swami Vivekananda
Just because something is unbelievable does not mean you shouldn't believe it. Put another way, some things are worth believing in whether they're true or not.
