There are at least two kind of cowards. One kind always lives with him, afraid to face the world. The other kind lives with the world, afraid to face him.
The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge.
The greatest hazard of all, losing one’s self, can occur very quietly in the world as if it were nothing at all. No other loss can occur so quietly; any other loss-an arm, a leg, five $, wife etc- is sure to be noticed.
There is nothing noble about being superior to other person. The true nobility is in be superior to you previous self.
Biographies are the other clothes and buttons of the man- the biography of the man himself cannot be written.
Miss-fortunes one can endure- they come from outside, there are accidents. But to suffer for one own faults- ah! There is the sting of life.That’s the thing about needs. Some times when you get them meet, you don’t need them any more, there is as much difference between us and our self’s as between us and others.
When your inner and outer energies radiate in harmony, you are blessed and spiritually magnetic.
It is better to drink off deep grief’s that to taste shallow pleasures.
The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength with in you that survives all hurt.
Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.
You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment unless you trust enough. The only way to make a man trust worthy is to trust him.
Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear, deciding whether or not to true a person is like deciding whether or not to climb a tree, because you might get a wonderful view from the highest branch, or you might simply get covered in sap, and for this reason many people chose to spend there time alone and indoor, where it is harder to get a splinter.
Perhaps imagination is only intelligence having fun. Character is higher than intellect.
Have the courage to live. Any one can die.
To love with fear and not be afraid is the final test of maturity.
Courage is reckoned the greatest of all virtues; because, unless the man has that virtue, he has not security for preserving for any other. Courage doesn’t always roar. Some times courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.
Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.
The man sent a bill that read:
Tapping with a hammer …….. $ 2.00
Knowing where to tap ………… $ 9998.00
Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.

The Human mind is inherently designed to achieve a target. If a goal is not assigned to it, it will select any repetitive phrase or image received forcefully through internal (thoughts) or external (people, media, etc.,) stimuli. So, it is better that we set our passionate goals.
We all might have came across to situations where we feel like our mind has left us helpless, and there’s nothing we can do to make things change or happen, and for this we do consult some one else, who can come up or else suggest some better option to us or guide us.
But, my point is have we ever noticed that being a human being, and acknowledging the fact that our mind has some limitations, and it varies from an individual to individual when it comes to decision making, out of the box thinking etc.,,, why he simply just give up to situations ?
The answer is YES, because we never trained our mind to look for the alternatives, because we’ve been assisted by other like always when some fishy situation comes up, and this ability of our’s remain un-used.
Notice some times, you come across some thieves or some theft, and to negotiate or distract the offender you make him feel that you too have a gun, to come up to the mark and make him realize that you too carry a weapon, which in fact you don’t. Seems like philosophical, agreed but as said above I am talking about possibilities, utilizing the unused !
On the other hand we usually are taken down by emotions that run so high when it comes to some failures, or some deceptions, and go far from solving that particular situation, ending up simply in more and more troubles.
Your Boss, did not paid that attention to what you were trying to tell him, in any kind of situation from decision making to suggestions, as Your Boss justifies himself “More Experienced” than you. But have you ever noticed that this rejection has given you another opportunity to think above that, and that is just because you were willing for some thing to try which your boss turned down, and YOU HAVE KEPT YOUR MIND OPEN FOR NEW THINGS TO LEARN, don’t know how here is a little justification:
Failure to plan means planning for failure. A detailed action plan helps channelise our energy and efforts in a focused way. This covers projected milestones, available/required resources, anticipated obstacles, required action steps, review process, etc.
Frequently picture the end result in a relaxed mental state for at least 15 minutes twice a day. Always visualize a positive outcome which will help trigger a chain of events in the form of helpful opportunities (people, events, etc). These must be capitalized on without doubt or hesitation.
A never-say-die attitude is required at the physical, mental and emotional levels. This is where the intensity of the goal selected or lack of it makes or breaks the perseverance.
To conclude, I would say that self-discipline helps develop the patience to see your efforts eventually start to yield results. Nothing is complete without the divine support. Understanding how the paradoxical combination of effort and destiny affect our lives is paramount. This helps us determine when to persist, change course or accept the outcome. Believe that there’s only 10 % beyond your control happening around you, rest of the 90 % is in your control, which determines your aftermath once you respond to that 10 %. And responding does not means a quick fearsome reaction no, it’s all about using your Mind, which is the “Ultimate Weapon that does not need any HOLSTER”.
