Sight vs Insight.

A friend of mine sent me the following quotes. I lenjoy reading them and I thnk it speaks volumes. Read on ...


Eyes provide sight.

Heart provides insight.


Success is a measure as decided by others.

Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.


Knowing the road ahead is more satisfying than knowing you road ahead.

You work with the compass.

Let others work with the clock.


Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go.

Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.


Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be.

Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it.


Life is not merely a process of discovery but a process of co-creation.

Refined ballet combined with superb acrobatics

Refined ballet combined with superb acrobatics

Their flawless execution is awesome !


Why Me?

When they suffer they ask, 'why me?'

When they prosper, they never ask 'Why me'.

Everyone wishes to have truth on their side, but few want to be on the side of the truth.

Why has life become complicated now?

A friend of mine sent me and I thought it was so appropriate and speaks volumes. Read it and enjoy......

Why has life become complicated now?

Stop analyzing life.

Just live it.

Analysis is what makes it complicated.

Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday.

You are worrying because you are analyzing.

Worrying has become your habit.

That's why you are not happy.

Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.

Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

Diamond cannot be polished without friction.

Gold cannot be purified without fire.

Good people go through trials, but don't suffer.

With that experience their life become better not bitter.

Inner strength comes from struggle and endurance, not when you are free from problems.

What are you busy at?

Activity gets you busy.

Productivity gets you results.

Activity consumes time.

Productivity frees it!

What are you busy at?

The test of courage and tolerance...

The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.

-- Ralph W. Sockman (1889-1970)

If we wait until we've satisfied...

So what do we do?
Anything - something.

So long as we don't just sit there.

If we screw it up, start over.
Try something else.

If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.

-- Lee Iacocca

Don't be afraid if things seem difficult...

Don't be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning.

That's only the initial impression.

The important thing is not to retreat; you have to master yourself.

-- Olga Korbut

The future you see...

The future you see is the future you get.

-- Robert G. Allen

Being judgmental...

Being judgmental instead of constructive is turning off your audience.

If you can't curb the criticism, then don't do any talking at all.

You may learn something new through this little experiment.

Present Moment

Most people treat the present moment as if it were
an obstacle that they need to overcome.

Since the present moment is Life itself, it is an insane way to live.

-- Eckhart Tolle

Self Development

Self-development is a higher duty than self-sacrifice.

-- Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Computers and Men

The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men,
but that
men will begin to think like computers.

--Sydney J. Harris
