Impatience with actions, patience with results.

Your heart needs to break multiple times for it to open up.

Somewhere in the process of maturing into adults, most humans misunderstood comfort for happiness.

Alice came to a fork in the road.
‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
‘Where do you want to go?’ responded the Cheshire Cat.
‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.
‘Then,’ said the Cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.”

– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.

Me? I’m dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It’s the honest ones you want to watch out for, because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly … stupid!

We mature with the damage not with the years.

  • Neither one knows how much damage one has taken (from outside perspective) nor damage can be quantified, so age is a good universal metric (better than nothing) to judge maturity/experience

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

– Lance Armstrong

People work together when it suits them.
They’re loyal when it suits them.
Love each other when it suits them.
And they kill each other when it suits them.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.

Unless someone truly has the power to say no, they never truly have the power to say yes”

So be gentle with yourself; show yourself the same kindness and patience you might show a young child - the child you once were.
If you won’t be your own friend, who will be?
If, when playing an opponent, you are also opposing yourself, you will be outnumbered.”

If babies held the same tendency toward self-criticism as adults, they might never learn to walk or talk.
Can you imagine infants stomping, ‘Aarggh! Screwed up again!’
Fortunately, babies are free of self-criticism. They just keep practicing.”

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

इंसान जो कहता है नाह की मुझे किसी बात का घमंड नहीं है, तोह ये सबसे बड़ा घमंड है की तुझे घमण्ड है की तुझे किसी बात का घमंड नहीं है

    तारीफ शैतान की जुबां होती है, इंसान के अंदर तक्कूबार (घमंड) पैदा करती है. तक्कूबार पर आपका control नहीं है.

    आप जब फ़क़ीर को भी पैसा देते हो नाह, उसके आँखों में मत देखो, उसकी आँखें शायद तुम्हारे अन्दर घमंड पैदा करदे की मैंने इसकी help की.

ठंडा दिमाग, मीठी जुबां और नरम दिल - ये तीन चीज़ें अगर कर ली इंसान ने तोह पार

  • You should keep on switching (and surpassing) your ideals (ones you look up to),
  • and if you are working hard and still not able to surpass him/her, then that person is also continuously doing a lot of hardwork to maintain that and he/she is consistent at maintaining that gap, respect that.

If you propose to speak, alwasys ask yourself: Is it true; is it kind, or is it necessary?

A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams a reality

– Greg Reid

The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love.

It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person–without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.

– Osho

The great paradox - when you are outwardly rich only then do you become aware of your inner poverty

It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.

– Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.

Way of the Peaceful Warrior

The journey is what brings us happiness not the destination.

– Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does.

– Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Life has three rules: Paradox, Humor, and Change.

  • Paradox: Life is a mystery; don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
  • Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure
  • Change: Know that nothing ever stays the same.

– Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now! Love is the only reality of the world, because it is all One, you see. And the only laws are paradox, humor and change. There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life, just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe; you are yourself and everyone else, too! It’s all the marvelous Play of God. Wake up, regain your humor. Don’t worry, just be happy. You are already free!”

– Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

If you don’t get what you want, you suffer;
if you get what you don’t want, you suffer;
even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever.”

– Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Everyone tells you what’s good for you.

They don’t want you to find your own answers. They want you to believe theirs.”

– Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

The first step to change,… is accepting your reality right now. Honoring your process. Compassionate self-awareness leads to change; harsh self-criticism only holds the pattern in place, creating a stubborn and defensive basic self. Be gentle with yourself as you would with a child. Be gentle but firm. Give yourself the space to grow. But remember that the timing is in god’s hands, not yours. ”

– Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior

A man interrupted one of the Buddha’s lectures with a flood of abuse.
Buddha waited until he had finished and then asked him, “If a man offered a gift to another but the gift was declined, to whom the gift should belong?” The man replied “To the one who offered it.”
“Then, I decline to accept your abuse and request you to keep it for yourself.”, said Buddha.
Don’t accept the gift of a verbal abuse (or) angry criticism. Then it still belongs to the person who offered it.

My wife and I have built a new home with a lovely garden which houses lovely bamboo trees.
I got reading on the Chinese bamboo and learned that the tree takes 5 years, 3 months to grow to its whole height of 80 feet.
Yet, for the first 5 years, you only see a tiny green shoot, but in the next 90 days, it grows into a full-fledged tree.
But in those first 60 months, it is growing its strong network of roots underground, to support the tree.
In an era of instant gratification, we settle for shorter trees, but remember patience has its reward.
These are your years of growing that strong network of roots but be sure when you finally achieve your success, people will call it overnight success."

– Rahul Dravid

Success hugs you in private but failure slaps you in public.

I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone, it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you fell all alone.
