Life is a song - sing it.
Life is a game - play it.
Life is a challenge - meet it.
Life is a dream - realize it.
Life is a sacrifice - offer it.
Life is love - enjoy it.
- Sai Baba
“Life is like arriving late for a movie, having to figure out what was going on without bothering everybody with a lot of questions, and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends.”
People do not lack strength, they lack will.
The three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love and something to hope for.
Never allow a person to tell you No who doesn't have the power to say Yes.
- Eleanor Roosevelt
I am unlimited.
I take responsibility for my life.
My every action is a conscious choice.
I can accomplish anything good that I truly set my mind on.
I keep focus, and persevere.
Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.
- Mohandas K. Gandhi
When I hear somebody sigh, "Life is hard," I am always tempted to ask, "Compared to what?"
- Sydney J. Harris
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
thank you Mongi
Thanks so much Mongi.....I love that you visit us here!!
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
sorry I placed my post in the wrong topic, meant for "thought of the day " rather...ciao.
Hi Robin, hi Lone,
great what you´re doing since you´ve been back in town, pleasant posts to poke folks awake and revive those who love life and never hasten past it...
am convinced --very--, that you´re suffused with optimism and a certain kind of zest for life, a reward you doubtless one day earned or have been given for your never misusing faith ( on the margin, am not religious at all, saying this coz I wouldn´t like to be gotten wrong, but we get tenfold in return for being honest and tolerant in life without us knowing or asking ourselves where we have the whole love of life from, whilst it´s but the kind of love that we owe to our being a philanthropist and a selfless one like yourself as exude your posts and your agreeable way...
I may have been too " flowery ", but simply I´ve been struck by your pure and neutral kindness time and again..am not generous with such words otherwise, but we need to speak them when someone deserves them...maybe something hard to come by today...carry on.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.

What is the meaning of life? To be happy and useful.

I can be changed by what happens to me, but i refuse to be reduced by it.

Smile, even if it's a sad smile, because sadder than a sad smile is the sadness of not knowing how to smile.
Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
