Good Quotes for the Week

The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that the warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse. - Don Juan

 Failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying. - B F. Skinner

God made everything out of nothing. But the nothingness shows through -Paul Valery

Did you ever notice how difficult it is to argue with someone who is not obsessed with being right? - Wayne W. Dyer 

It is simple. We are where we should be, doing what we should be doing. Otherwise we would be somewhere else, doing something else.

“The world doesn't owe you anything. It was here first.” ~ Mark Twain 

The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself -Henry Miller 

Being nice, patient, responsible people does not make us door mats. Choosing to be the best people possible, regardless how others choose to behave, means we are in control of ourselves rather than simply being the puppet of our irresponsible ego. Ego is NOT capable of choosing our 'best' behavior. So being in control of our ego to create life with positive purpose actually makes us the powerful ones.

Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with
A love like that.
It lights the whole sky.
((((( Hafiz )))))
