quotes




I am the inferior of any man whose rights I trample under foot. 
Men are not superior by reason of the accidents of race or 
color. They are superior who have the best heart, the best brain. 
The superior man stands erect by bending above the fallen. 
He rises by lifting others.
~Robert Green Ingersoll~






Why there is so much stress in life ?
It is because we focus too much on good living standards
Rather than "living with good standards"
Unknown


"Society does not go down because of the activities of criminals, But because of the inactivities of the good people." Swami Vivekananda


God changes appearances every second.
Blessed is the man who can recognize him in all his disguises.
One moment he is a glass of fresh water, the next, your son bouncing on your knees
 or an enchanting woman, or perhaps merely a morning walk


No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined.
 No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled.
No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined. 
Harry Emerson Fosdick


The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict
 Martin Luther King Jr.


Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules;
And each must make,
Ere life has flown,
A stumbling block
Or a stepping stone.
 R.L. Sharpe



The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. 
You don't blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the President. 
You realize that you control your own destiny.
Albert Ellis


He who buys what he needs not,
sells what he needs.

~Japanese Proverb~


To me, a life that is slack is a life being lived inefficiently.
