for one day you may look back
and realize they were the big things.

Let others argue over small things, but not you.
Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.
Let others leave their future
in someone else’s hands, but not you.

Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death
they would be asked two questions
and their answers would determine
whether they could continue their journey
in the afterlife.
The first question was, “Did you bring joy?”
The second was, “Did you find joy?”

or we make ourselves happy.

you’ll never have enough.

At bottom every man knows well enough
that he is a unique being, only once on this earth;
and by no extraordinary chance will such a
marvelously picturesque piece of diversity
in unity as he is,
ever be put together a second time.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Don’t be trapped by dogma,
which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinions
drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.
~ Steve Jobs ~
Life is a grindstone,
and whether it grinds you down
or polishes you up
is for you and you alone to decide.

For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin – real life.
But there was always some obstacle in the way.
Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business,
time still to be served, or a debt to be paid.
Then life would begin.
At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
~ Father Alfred D’Souza ~
Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.

Some come in your life as lessons.
