The self-confidence one builds from achieving difficult things and accomplishing goals is the most beautiful thing of all.
There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Since, O Mazda, from the beginning, Thou didst create soul and body; mental power and knowledge and since Thou didst place life within the corporeal body and didst bestow to mankind the power to act, speak and guide, you wished that everyone should choose his or her own faith and path freely.
When faith in our freedom gives way to fear of our freedom, silencing the minority view becomes the operative protocol.

If you take responsibility for yourself, you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.
- Les Brown
An old belief is like an old shoe. We so value its comfort that we fail to notice the hole in it.
- Robert Brault
When there is Love, there is no ego; ego dissolves like the dew drops with the sun.
- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Grant me, O God, strength and courage to restrain the desires of my heart, that I may be free to possess you, Amen.
- Jesus Christ
When you let go of past pain, believe in yourself, and follow your dreams—you can find true happiness!
- Casi McLean
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
