It's all about recognising when the hurt is making you stronger and when it's just plain hurt.

He who angers you conquers you.

Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.

Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be. And, Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.

Information is not knowledge.

Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

Advice is seldom welcome, but those who want it the most like it the least.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

Holding on to anger is like grasping hot coal with the intention of throwing it at someone. But what you don't realise is that you are the one getting burned.

For every minute spent in organising, an hour is earned.

Cowards give excuses.

Imagine never even thinking "I am alone" simply because it has never occurred to you to think that there's any other way to be.

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.

None of us are as smart as all of us.

True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.

Time stays long enough for anyone to use it.

People only see what they are prepared to see.

If you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof was to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Warm is cooler than hot: literally and otherwise.

We all want to be different and that's what makes us all the same.

In true love and true friendship it's not important that you share everything. What is more important is that whatever you share must be true.

We live in strange times and places: each in a universe of our own. The people with whom we populate our universes are the shadows of whole other universes intersecting with our own. Being able to glance out into this bewildering complexity of infinite recursion and say things like, "Oh, hi, Ed! Nice tan. How's Carol?" involves a great deal of filtering skill for which all conscious entities have eventually to develop a capacity in order to protect themselves from the contemplation of the chaos through which they seethe and tumble.

It is essential to differentiate between what feels right, looks good, feels good, looks right, is right, feels wrong, and looks wrong.

In the quest of defining what is the right kind of love; since there are many forms of love, see not what makes you feel comfortable, but what gets you all agitated, because that is THE one, the one which has power over you is the strongest kind of love.

For harmony don't harm any.

No one can yank me out of this divine delirium. This has come from a million moments spent knowing myself, the person that I am. And now that I know the truth about my being, about the true reason why I am here, I feel that no element in the Creation can relinquish me from this aura of pure bliss that allows me splendid feelings of oneness with all the forces of the Universe.

Limitless and baseless love. And it will remain in me all through the entirety of my profound existence, growing stronger by the moment. It is only you that I have, to pacify my tumultous emotions and I feel blessed that I can turn to you to exploit my need for nurturing comforts. My love for you sustains every upheaval caused by time and distance and stays stubbornly in position as a rock on the shore of angry waters.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence therefore is not an act but a habit.

The happier people can be, the unhappier they are.

If you were told and believed to be true that, the amount of tears you shed are equal to the amount of laughter up till now, what would you remember to be significant regardless of this fabricated statistic, the laughter or the tears?
This question is along the same lines of the half empty half full perspective.

There's nothing that cannot be pursued. You just have to have an open heart and mind and not let anything or anyone bog you or your enthusiasm down. If you believe you can, nothing else should come in your way. Everything encapsulates your realm of possibilities. The world is ready to have you and the curtain's ready to open. They're all waiting at your feet for your greatness.
