Quote of the Day
When you wake up every day, you have two choices. You can either be positive or negative; an optimist or a pessimist. I choose to be an optimist. It's all a matter of perspective.
Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.
Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.
I say what I want to say and do what I want to do. There's no in between. People will either love you for it or hate you for it.
Either you decide to stay in the shallow end of the pool or you go out in the ocean.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.
Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas A. Edison
When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways - either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.
On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.
Whosoever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or a god.
We love to expect, and when expectation is either disappointed or gratified, we want to be again expecting.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
Life is either a great adventure or nothing.
Selfish persons are incapable of loving others, but they are not capable of loving themselves either.
I'm just not into trying to convince people like me. I always say to myself, 'It is what it is.' I walk into a situation knowing that people are either going to love me or they're not, and that's OK. I'm just going to be me. You can't be everything to everyone.
You either believe that people respond to authority, or that they respond to kindness and inclusion. I'm obviously in the latter camp. I think that people respond better to reward than punishment.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
Men ought either to be indulged or utterly destroyed, for if you merely offend them they take vengeance, but if you injure them greatly they are unable to retaliate, so that the injury done to a man ought to be such that vengeance cannot be feared.
Problems or successes, they all are the results of our own actions. Karma. The philosophy of action is that no one else is the giver of peace or happiness. One's own karma, one's own actions are responsible to come to bring either happiness or success or whatever.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
If you aren't in the moment, you are either looking forward to uncertainty, or back to pain and regret.
The future will either be green or not at all.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
