|“Faith is the bird that sings when the dawn is still dark”|

|“We are not creatures of circumstances; we are creators of circumstances”|
|“A man’s own self is his friend. A man’s own self is his foe.”|
|“Fear the cunning friend who smiles sweetly to your face
But conceals wickedness in his heart.
Distrust whatever words may come from
Men whose hearts are not in harmony with your own.
While sounding like a good friend’s words,
A rival’s words are readily revealed.
Do not trust an enemy though he bends low in his speech,
For the bending of the bow forebodes nothing but harm.”
|Thirukural, Thiruvalluvar 824-827|
|“Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.”|
|“Never mistake motion for action.”|
|God is the friend of silence. How nature – trees, flowers, grass grow in silence; how the stars, the moon and the sun move the silence.|
|God, despite his casual silence, still exists.|
|Don William Jr|

|A book is like a garden carried in the pocket|
|As the blazing fire reduces wood to ashes, similarly the fire of Self-knowledge reduces all Karma to ashes.|
|If a householder moulds himself according to the circumstances just like nature moulds Herself according to seasons and performs his Karma then only shall he acquire happiness.|
|Hatred anger lead to unhappiness, pain and misery. So one should be always be soft-spoken and all karma yogis should tread the path of righteousness.|
|Life is the biggest teacher
Chapters fold and unfold
Experiences, happy or sad
Some stories finished…some untold.
In this drama of life
We must play our role
We must fulfill our duties
And search inner peace for our soul
|GOD is present in the mind of that person who remains calm when faced by the pairs of opposites such as cold and heat,
Joy and sorrow, honour and dishonour.
|Sukha is the pleasure that a person gets when something good happens and Dukha is the sorrow that he gets when something bad happens. These are the responses that a person has to good or bad circumstances. Also good or bad circumstances are result of past actions, while the joy sorrow are experiences of present action. A self –controlled person remains balanced and calm in both.|
|We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.|
|By its very nature, existence cannot have any boundary. That’s why I’m saying skies are available for your flight. Don’t be content easily. Those who remain content easily remain small: small are their joys, small their ecstasies, small are their silences, small is their being. But there is no need! This smallness is you own imposition upon your freedom, upon your unlimited possibilities, upon your unlimited potential.|
|Vikramaditya: What is “truth”? That which is said repeatedly, that which said loudly, that which is said with authority or that which is agreed by the majority.
Divakara: None of the above. Every one has his own definition of “truth” and that is conditional.
|Acharya Siddhasena Divakara(Vardhamana Dvatrimika)|
|“There’s no secret about success. Did you ever know a successful man who didn’t tell you about it?”|

|“It is never too late to fall in love.”|
|Beauty is truth’s smile when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.|
