Quote of the Day
- Page 4
We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
Writing means sharing. It's part of the human condition to want to share things - thoughts, ideas, opinions.
I don't pay attention to the number of birthdays. It's weird when I say I'm 53. It just is crazy that I'm 53. I think I'm very immature. I feel like a kid. That's why my back goes out all the time, because I completely forget I can't do certain things anymore - like doing the plank for 10 minutes.
I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you're spending your time doing something worthwhile.
My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn't prevent you doing well, and don't regret the things it interferes with. Don't be disabled in spirit as well as physically.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.
Edgar Allan Poe
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.
I really believe I've been a good person. Not perfect - forget about perfect - but just learning by what I was taught and living by my own values. I might have stepped on a few ants - and a few other things as well - but I've never hurt anybody.
Kiri Te Kanawa
I am a bit difficult to be around sometimes. I can be stubborn on a lot of things, and I'm set, but I can also adapt in a conflict situation and don't hold on to an ego. I end up seeing the larger good and adapt to it, provided it benefits me. I may come across as a cold person, but I am extremely sentimental.
Great things are done when men and mountains meet.
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
Vincent Van Gogh
Only love interests me, and I am only in contact with things that revolve around love.
Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.
All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
Love is a really scary thing, and you never know what's going to happen. It's one of the most beautiful things in life, but it's one of the most terrifying. It's worth the fear because you have more knowledge, experience, you learn from people, and you have memories.
I am convinced that material things can contribute a lot to making one's life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important.
Sometimes things aren't clear right away. That's where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead.
Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.
T. S. Eliot
It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.
Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it - memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.
I think that one of the things that you do learn is that falling in love and being in love with someone is a rarity. That you don't fall in love as many times as you think you're going to. And then when you do, it's really special; it's really important.
Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself.
Saint Francis de Sales
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
