I came across these quotes of famous people and have been wondering how come they knew our minds so well.
My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it ~ Abraham Lincoln.
We have a lot of kids who don’t know what works means. They think work is a four-letter word ~ Hillary Clinton.
The golden rule of work is that the bosses jokes are ALWAYS funny ~ Robert Paul.
The world is full of willing people; some willing to work, the rest willing to let them ~ Robert Frost.
Work is the curse of the drinking classes.~ Oscar Wilde.
AND THE BEST ONE.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith…
[STEVE JOBS, on his being fired from Apple in 1984]
I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life… It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.
Two things are very difficult in life.
“Hello” for the first time to an unknown person and
“Good bye” for the last time to whom you really love.
Some times we think why friends keep forwarding messages without any reason.
The reason is clear…
they have nothing to say but still want to be in touch and remind you that you’re in their
One machine can do job of 50 ordinary men; But No machine can do job of one extra- ordinary man;
If you can’t stand up for something, you will fall for everything
Be that EXtraOrdinary !!
Celebrate Life…. Have a great start..
Extra-Ordinary means beyond what is ordinary or usual; highly unusual or exceptional or remarkable !!
Nice line by Javed Akhtar Sahab:
” लब्ज़ ही ऐसी चीज़ है
जिसकी वजह से इंसान
या तो दिल में उतर जाता है
या दिल से उतर जाता है ”
ज़िन्दगी के इस कश्मकश मैं
वैसे तो मैं भी काफ़ी बिजी हुँ ,
लेकिन वक़्त का बहाना बना कर ,
अपनों को भूल जाना मुझे आज भी नहीं आता !
जहाँ यार याद न आए वो तन्हाई किस काम की,
बिगड़े रिश्ते न बने तो खुदाई किस काम की,
बेशक अपनी मंज़िल तक जाना है ,
पर जहाँ से अपना दोस्त ना दिखे
वो ऊंचाई किस काम की …..
Dedicated to all friends …
Beautiful lines to ponder..
Sometimes I feel I want to go back in times…
Not to change things,
but to feel a couple of things twice…
Sometimes I wish I was a baby for a while…
Not to be walked in the pram
but to see my mother’s smile…
Sometimes I wish I could go back to school…
Not to become a child,
but to learn how to be cool…
Sometimes I wish I could be back in the university…
Not to be a rebel but,
to understand what I study…
Sometimes I wish I was a fresher at my work…
Not to do less work but,
to recall the joy of the first pay cheque…
Sometimes I wish I could marry again all over…
Not to change the partner but,
to understand the ceremony better…
Sometimes I wish my kids were younger…
Not because they grew fast but, to play with them a bit more…
Sometimes I feel I still had some more time to live…
Not to have a longer life but,
to know what I could give…
Never can the times come back that are gone…
Let’s enjoy all the moments that we can ….
On this road called life, you have to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad, love what you got, and remember what you had.
Always forgive, but never forget, learn from your mistakes, but never forget. People change. Things go wrong. But just remember, the ride goes on….
Have you ever felt that you’ve almost made up our mind, but then, from nowhere, a black cloud of doubt appears that doesn’t seem to clear? Such doubts are like ripples in the water that give us a distorted reflection of ourselves and all that are around us. But once the ripples settle down, everything becomes crystal clear.
“We wait for the mud in a pond to settle down before we can get clean water; Similarly in Life also during Disturbing situations, lets allow our mind to settle down to get clarity of our thoughts”
What will You get by Improving Mental Clarity?
You will be able to
1 – perform well in your job or
2 – learn and retain information much longer, or
3 – work on any sort of complex problem, or
It will help you
1 – if you’re unsure of your purpose or direction in life, or
2 – if you’re stressed and struggling to relax and think clearly, or
3 – if you are seeking clarity in uncertain times
Learn to calm down the winds of your mind, and you will enjoy great inner peace;
While meditation can help you become more attuned with your mind, you already possess all the tools you need to reap the benefits of a quiet, calm mind… By simply tuning into the small things in life, you can work your way towards a greater happiness and fulfillment in your own life
Sometimes we’re so busy focusing on ourselves that we forget to enjoy the moments as they come. We become trapped in the confines of the day-to-day and the span of our own goals, and we forget to enjoy the beauty of life and the little things.
Lord Shiva’s third eye has always fascinated people. It stands there dramatically on his forehead ready to release a missile of fire and destroy the world. Many people assume that is whyShiva is called the `destroyer’. He is often referred to as Tryambaka Deva, meaning “three-eyed Lord”
The third eye, also called the mind’s eye, or inner eye, is a mystical and esoteric concept of a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. In certain dharmic spiritual traditions, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. The third eye refers to the gate that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In New Age spirituality, the third eye often symbolises a state of enlightenment. It’s often referred to as the “gyananakashu” , the eye of knowledge. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilise their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.
In Hinduism, the third eye is said to be located around the middle of the forehead, slightly above the junction of the eyebrows. Many people assume that because of His destructive ‘third eye’, Lord Shiva is known as the destroyer, or also known as Tryambaka deva. Shiva’s third eye is known as the eye of spiritual wisdom and knowledge. The right is referred as Sun and left eye as moon. They represent His activities in the physical world while the third eye symbolises His spiritual wisdom and power. Through His third eye, Lord Shiva is able to see beyond the apparent and destroy all evil. All the evil and ignorance vanishes as Shiva opens his third eye.
Shiva’s third eye thus represents the rejection of desire. It killed Kama, the God of love and desires. Shiva rejects desire because He understands that when the object of desire (Sati) goes away, there is immense sorrow and rage which develops in a being. Hence, to stay away from the desire is the best way to attain bliss.
SUCCESS is getting what you want… HAPPINESS is wanting what you get… ❤
“The things that makes your heart beat faster and your eyes glow when you do it or talk about it, no matter if it’s hiking, yoga, gardening, painting, meditation, love, photography, going for walks, helping others – do that…. Do it as often as you can. Because that’s what life is about. Creating as many passionate, happy moments as possible. Don’t let anyone stop you from doing the things you love – not even yourself.”
