I believe that this world is what turned me into what I am today, the cruel, callous, calculating individual I am now. I don’t like myself but you must be cruel and callous to get by in this world. The kind and the soft are trampled on relentlessly and the cruel and cunning are feared and respected. So tell me, which would you choose? To be kind and weak, with a warm heart and be crushed and burned until you break, or be cruel, cunning and callous and be feared and thrive?
Egg is destined to break. If it breaks with outside forces, it ends the life. But if it breaks from inside, a new life is born.
– Bhagwant Mann
Life is always filled with ups and downs. Straight line even on an ECG means dead. So embrace situations and fight your way out.
– Bhagwant Mann
We can manufacture whatever we want within ourselves – joy or misery, fear or love, anxiety or ecstasy.
A life without meaning is equal to death. It’s like lying in your grave except that you still have breath.
A good way to ascertain what matters to you is to imagine the following: You wake up in the morning to the realisation that you have but a day to live. How would you want to spend that day? Who would you want to spend that time with?
– Adiela Akoo
The way you wear a correct dress for any occasion, the same way you must have correct attitude to handle any situation.
Each one of us has both; good and evil virtues. Those who decide to focus on the good ones succeed in life.

I’m one of the least materialistic people that exist, because material possessions don’t mean much to me. They’re beautiful, I enjoy them, they can enhance your life to a certain degree, but they’re ultimately not important.
– Tom Ford
Your life is far too valuable to be wasted on the life that everyone else is choosing.
– Joshua Becker
We were never meant to live life accumulating stuff. We were meant to live simply enjoying the experiences of life, the people of life, and the journey of life – not the things of life.
– Joshua Becker
The Past shouldn’t rob the Present, the Present is a Gift. The Future shouldn’t destroy this Moment, this Moment is meant to be Lived!
Don’t be gloomy. Do not dwell on unkind things. Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. Even if you are not happy, put a smile on your face. ‘Accentuate the positive.’ Look a little deeper for the good. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life.
– Gordon B. Hinckley

You: Stares at a blue light emitting screen all day. Never gets sunlight. Sleeps 6 hours a night. Never meditates. Does not pre-allocate your time. Also you: “Why can’t I focus on anything for more than 20 minutes?”
Un-think. Un-learn. Un-know. Un-believe. Un-speculate. Un-seek. Un-strive. Un-fear. Lose your mind and effortlessly be.
– Brian Thompson
Slow reading, most enjoyable reading. Slow learning, deepest understanding. Slow to conclusions, deepest thinking. Rushing can make you waste time and life.
Its good to leave each day behind, like flowing water, free of sadness. Yesterday is gone and its tale told. Today new seeds are growing.
It is preoccupation with possession, more than anything else, that prevents men from living freely and nobly.
– Bertrand Russell
To be of value, we must develop basic good human qualities – warmth, kindness, compassion. Then our life will become happier and more meaningful.

People tend to complicate their own lives, as if living weren’t already complicated enough.
– Carlos Ruiz
Run from what’s comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious. I have tried prudent planning long enough. From now on I’ll be mad.
Delete emails without responding or flinching. Don’t set up voicemail. Don’t travel purely for business. Don’t go to conferences unless speaking. Eat dinner with friends or family. Use blocks of open time to create, make good decisions, and focus on important over urgent.
– Naval Ravikant
Turn off the news. Delay the unessential. Reduce your appointments. Slow down. Break tasks into small portions. Seek help. Focus on little pleasures. Count your blessings. Sleep. Drink more water. Take a walk. Breathe deeply. Sit quietly and let every muscle relax.

Everything that exists in your life, does so because of two things: something you did or something you didn’t do.
– Albert Einstein
I once thought that if I could ask God one question, I would ask how the universe began, because once I knew that, all the rest is simply equations. But as I got older I became less concerned with how the universe began. Rather, I would want to know why he started the universe. For once I knew that answer, then I would know the purpose of my own life.
– Albert Einstein
We all want pleasure, we don’t want pain. If we don’t realize ‘who we are’ and ‘why we are here’, our life will go in vain.
I am thankful for living during the fast phase of the vertical evolution of humanity; for seeing so many changes in one lifetime.
The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably deal with.
– Tony Robbins
If life were predictable it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.
– Eleanor Roosevelt
If you can just live in the “Now” and focus on this moment with ease, then fear and worry will disappear as you live with joy and peace!
This world is like a drama. Everything that happens on the earth-stage is produced and directed by the creator. Then, why do we get upset, disturbed, and unhappy at what happens?
Nothing is real;
It’s a cosmic drama.
We are just actors;
We come and we go.
There will be laughter;
There will be tears.
Such is the cosmic show.
Carpe diem means ‘seize the day’! Make the best of it in every way! Don’t lose a moment, come what may! Forget about tomorrow, just live today!
Make some noise, because if you’re always waiting for the music to start, you’re bound to live a quiet life.
Being able to comfortably witness, and to reason about, what is going on around you is sufficient incentive to continue living.
When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.
