You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically - to say 'no' to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside. The enemy of the 'best' is often the 'good.'
- Stephen Covey
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.
- Bob Dylan
After helping someone, if you expect a gesture of gratitude from him, then there
is no point in helping. If you feel good when he expresses his gratitude, then too
helping is useless. In that case, you must understand that your help was merely
a means to satiate your ego.
- Deep Trivedi
Population can be a liability as well as an asset. If every citizen works, only then
can population be an asset. When one person earns and supports four, it is
dangerous not only for the family, but even for the country... In that case, where
is the question of fostering these pundits and sannyasins?
- Deep Trivedi
In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure.
- Malcolm X
How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I'm committed to?
- Anthony "Tony" Robbins
Too many people seem to believe that silence was a void that needed to be filled, even if nothing important was said.
- Nicholas Sparks
If you wish to be loved, show more of your faults than your virtues.
- Edward G. Bulwer Lytton
You look at it, but it is not to be seen; Its name is Formless. You listen to it, but it is not to be heard; Its name is Soundless. You grasp it, but it is not to be held; Its name is Bodiless. These three elude all scrutiny. And hence they blend and become one.
The sudden disappointment of a hope leaves a scar which the ultimate fulfillment of that hope never entirely removes.
- Thomas Hardy
