Some thougts, some oft repeated lines and some Favoutite quotes..
Ever heard of the song “Ek shenashah ne “. Beautiful song about the Taj Mahal…
ASHES OF DREAMS YOU LET DIE
Book -Strength to Love By Martin Luther King
There is surely a piece of divinity in us, something that was before the elements, and owes no homage unto the sun.” Sir Thomas Browne
Beautiful lines by Theodore Roosevelt
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man
who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while
so that his place shall never be
with those timid souls
who know neither victory or defeat.
Lines from OTH- “The boy saw the comet and he felt as though his life had meaning. It was more than just a comet because of what it brought to his life: direction, beauty, meaning. There are many who couldn’t understand, and sometimes he walked among them. But even in his darkest hours, he knew in his heart that someday it would return to him, and his world would be whole again… And his belief in God and love and art would be re-awakened in his heart.
“Love means giving something you don’t have to someone who doesn’t want it”. Jacques Lacan
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves ‘who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?’
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.- Used in the movie-Coach Carter(good movie 🙂 )
There is nothing more precious than the truth, there is nothing more beautiful than a child..
I believed in the song of a songbird,And saw the smile of a child…
When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life.” Greg Anderson
