Quote of the Day
My father was very disappointed by war and fighting. And he thought language could help us out of cycles of revenge and animosity.

He was always very clear to underscore the fact that Jewish people and Arab people were brother and sister.
Naomi Shihab Nye
I learnt early to have little expectation so I protected myself from ever feeling greatly disappointed.

Steven Van Zandt

Confidence has nothing to do with what you look like. If you obsess over that, you'll end up being disappointed in yourself all the time.

I love life. I wish I could live another 500 years, truly. There is so much to do. I don't feel bitter or angry or disappointed. If anything, I am very grateful for where I come from. I have absolutely no regrets.

God lets you be successful because he trusts you that you will do the right thing with it. Now, does he get disappointed often? All the time, because people get there and they forget how they got it.
He who seeks truth shall find beauty. He who seeks beauty shall find vanity. He who seeks order shall find gratification. He who seeks gratification shall be disappointed. He who considers himself the servant of his fellow beings shall find the joy of self-expression. He who seeks self-expression shall fall into the pit of arrogance.
When you give a lot of confidence in people and you don't get it back, you are a bit disappointed, but it's life.
