Mistakes may take place in your life but if you try hard to overcome those then you will feel that you are successful in your life.

I've discovered a lot in my 73 years!


I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.  —Gilda Radner
Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life. —Seneca
Having somewhere to go is home, having someone to love is family, having both is blessing. —Unknown
All men should strive to learn before they die, what they are running from, and to, and why. —James Thurber
May Light always surround you; 
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing; 
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom; 
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you; 
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For, 
May your arms Never Tire.
 —D. Simone
It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it. —Lena Horne
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it. —Margaret Thatcher
Nothing liberates our greatness like the desire to help, the desire to serve. —Marianne Williamson
We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race. We all share the same basic values. —Kofi Annan
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. —Albert Einstein
Anyone can look for fashion in a boutique or history in a museum. The creative explorer looks for history in a hardware store and fashion in an airport. —Robert S. Wieder
To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right. —Confucius
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. —Eden Ahbez
If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships - the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace.  —Franklin D. Roosevelt
You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for our own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful. —Marie Curie
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are to some extent a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece by thought, choice, courage and determination. —John Luther
