quotes

Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person
is like expecting an angry bull not to charge because you are
a vegetarian.
~Shari R. Barr~



I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable,
 to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something,
to have made some difference that you lived at all.
Children are not your trophies to flaunt, but a priceless gift to treasure.

Nearly all men can stand adversity,
but if you want to test a man's character,
give him power.

~Abraham Lincoln~


one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow 
  he may have to eat them. 


Whether it is your garden or your life, be wise enough  to remove  the weed before the weed removes you.


It is better to earn a bad name and live good life, thean earn a good name and lead bad life.

I'll contribute a few lines by Tagore I just read on Facebook yesterday:

"I slept and dreamed that life was all joy.

I woke and saw that life was but service.

I served and understood that service was joy."
