4. “Don’t let today’s troubles bring you down… Don’t let life’s little obstacles keep you from trying…Don’t let Don’t let your fears keep you from dreaming…Don’t give up for any reason…Believe in Yourself!


3. “Quality is free. It’s not a gift, but it’s free.  In reality, improving quality up to some threshold typically results in less time, less costand more scope. The “unquality” things are what cost more, all the actions that involve not doing jobs right the first time. Do things right in the first place, and you won’t have to pay to fix them or do them over. Whether you manage a large plant or run your own small business, applying this simple principle of quality control will boost your profits and your career”! Phil Crosby.

2. “Never accept anything less than you deserve”! Always remember your worth, or how much you deserve. You teach people how to treat you. Know Your worth. Demand the best, accept nothing less. Be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve. Don’t settle for anything less than wonderful, because you deserve so much more. Never apologize for having high standards, or, lower your standards to please somebody. People who really want to be in your life will rise up to meet them. The only people who deserve to be in your life are the ones who treat you with love, kindness and respect. Never set for anything less that you can be no matter how hard it may be to achieve it.

The ring’s true worth!

Read More

We all need the respect and esteem of those around us to be able to create our own self-esteem.


“The only person who can understand your true value is an expert.  Why do you go around expecting that anyone you meet on the street knows your true value?”


There’s an old story about a young man who went to see an old wise man for help.

“I’m here, sir, because I feel so small that I have no desire to do anything.  They tell me I’m useless, that I don’t do anything well, and that I’m lazy and stupid.  How can I improve myself? What can I do to get better?
Without looking at him, the wise man said: 
– I’m very sorry, young man.  I can’t help you, I must solve a problem of my own first.  Maybe then…
– And after a long pause he added – If you’d like to help me, I could solve my problem more quickly and then… maybe I can help you.
– Yyy … yes, sir. – he murmured, feeling once again degraded, his needs subordinated to those of the wise man.
– Good, then – the wise man replied.  He removed a ring from the pinkie finger of his left hand, and passing it to the young man he said
– Take that horse outside and ride to the town markets.  I need to sell this ring in order to pay a debt I owe.  It’s very important that you get the best possible price, absolutely nothing less than one gold coin.  Go and come back with the money as soon as you can.
The young man took the ring and went.  As soon as he reached the markets, he started showing the ring to the merchants.  They all seemed interested until he told them the price he wanted.
When he mentioned the gold coin, some laughed, others gave him strange looks.  Only one old man was kind enough to explain to him that one gold coin was too much for the ring.  He offered him a silver coin and a jar full of copper, but the young man rejected the offer following the instructions given to him not to accept less than one gold coin.
Having made more than 100 offers, having been rejected by every merchant in the market, he got on his horse and rode back.
He wanted desperately to have a gold coin to give to the wise man, so that the wise man could help him and advise him.
He entered the house.

– Sir -he said – I’m sorry.  You asked me to do something impossible.  Maybe I could have gotten two or three silver coins for that ring, but I just can’t trick any body into giving me more than its worth.
– The thing that you have just said is very important my young friend. – he replied with a smile – First, we’ve got to know the true value of the ring!  Get back on that horse and go to see the jewelry maker.  Who could possibly know better than he?  Tell him that you’d like to sell the ring and ask him how much he’ll give you for it.  But no matter what he offers you — do not sell the ring.  Bring it back here.
The young man got on his horse and set off.
By candlelight, the jewelry maker inspected the ring.  He used a magnifying glass and weighed it on a scale, and after a moment he said:
Tell the old man that if he needs to sell it immediately, I can’t give him more than 58 gold coins.  Got it, sprout?
– 58 gold coins?  he said in astonishment.
– Yeah. – If he has more time, he can probably find a buyer at 70 coins. Otherwise…
The young man took the ring and got up and left.  He was so excited that he galloped the horse all the way back.
 – Sit down. – said the wise man, as his young page burst through the door in excitement.  
He listened to the young man’s story, and then said  
You are just like this ring: a unique and valuable jewel. The only person. The only person who can understand your true value is an expert. Why do you go around expecting that anyone you meet on the street knows your true value?

And with this, he put the ring back on the pinkie finger of his left hand”.

Η Αληθινή Αξία του Δαχτυλιδιού


Υπάρχει μια παλιά ιστορία για ένα παιδί που πήγε να ζητήσει τη βοήθεια ενός σοφού: Ήρθα, δάσκαλε, γιατί νοιώθω τόσο ασήμαντος που δεν έχω όρεξη να κάνω τίποτα. Μου λένε ότι δεν αξίζω τίποτα, ότι δεν κάνω τίποτα σωστά, ότι είμαι αδέξιος και χαζός. Πως μπορώ να βελτιωθώ; Τι μπορώ να κάνω για να με εκτιμήσουν περισσότερο;”

Follow your instincts, sparkle. #verragio #unlikeanyother #engagementring

Ο δάσκαλος, χωρίς να τον κοιτάξει, του είπε: “Πόσο λυπάμαι, αγόρι μου. Δεν μπορώ να σε βοηθήσω γιατί πρώτα πρέπει να λύσω ένα δικό μου πρόβλημα. Μετά, ίσως..” και ύστερα από μια παύση συνέχισε : “Αν θέλεις να με βοηθήσεις εσύ, μπορεί να λύσω γρήγορα το πρόβλημά μου και μετά να μπορέσω να σε βοηθήσω.”

“Ε…μετά χαράς, δάσκαλε” είπε διστακτικά ο νεαρός, νοιώθοντας ότι τον υποτιμούσαν για άλλη μια φορά και μετέθεταν τις ανάγκες του.

images (25)

“Ωραία” συνέχισε ο δάσκαλος. Έβγαλε το δαχτυλίδι που φορούσε στο αριστερό του χέρι και το έδωσε στο αγόρι, λέγοντας :”Πάρε το άλογο που είναι εκεί έξω και τρέξε στην αγορά. Πρέπει να πουλήσω αυτό το δαχτυλίδι για να πληρώσω ένα χρέος. Είναι ανάγκη να πάρεις όσο περισσότερα χρήματα μπορείς για αυτό. Και με κανέναν τρόπο μη δεχτείς λιγότερα από ένα χρυσό φλουρί. Πήγαινε και έλα με το χρυσό φλουρί όσο πιο γρήγορα μπορείς.”


Ο νεαρός πήρε το δαχτυλίδι κι έφυγε. Μόλις έφτασε στην αγορά άρχισε να προσφέρει το δαχτυλίδι στους εμπόρους που το κοίταζαν με κάποιο ενδιαφέρον, ώσπου ο νεαρός έλεγε τι ζητούσε γι’ αυτό. Όταν το παιδί έλεγε “ένα χρυσό φλουρί” άλλοι γελούσαν, άλλοι του γύριζαν τις πλάτες και μόνο ένας γέροντας φάνηκε αρκετά ευγενικός για να μπει στον κόπο να του εξηγήσει ότι ένα χρυσό φλουρί ήταν πάρα πολύ για ένα δαχτυλίδι. Θέλοντας να βοηθήσει, ένας του πρόσφερε ένα ασημένιο νόμισμα κι ένα μπακιρένιο τάσι, όμως, ο νεαρός είχε οδηγίες να μη δεχτεί λιγότερα από ένα χρυσό φλουρί κι έτσι απέρριψε την προσφορά.


Αφού προσπάθησε να πουλήσει το κόσμημα σε όποιον συνάντησε στο δρόμο του στην αγορά – και σίγουρα θα ήταν πάνω από εκατό άτομα – , παραδέχτηκε την αποτυχία του, καβάλησε το άλογο και γύρισε πίσω. Πόσο θα ήθελε ο νεαρός να είχε ένα χρυσό φλουρί για να το δώσει στο δάσκαλο και να τον γλυτώσει από το πρόβλημά του. Έτσι, θα έπαιρνε κι αυτός τη συμβουλή και τη βοήθεια του δασκάλου.


Μπήκε μέσα στην κάμαρη. Δάσκαλε” είπε, “λυπάμαι. Είναι αδύνατο να τα καταφέρω. Ίσως να μπορούσα να πάρω δύο ή τρία ασημένια, όμως, νομίζω ότι δεν μπορώ να γελάσω κανέναν για την πραγματική αξία του δαχτυλιδιού.”

“Αυτό που είπες είναι πολύ σημαντικό, νεαρέ μου φίλε” απάντησε χαμογελώντας ο δάσκαλος. “Πρέπει πρώτα να μάθουμε την αληθινή αξία του δαχτυλιδιού.

Καβάλησε πάλι το άλογο και πήγαινε στον κοσμηματοπώλη. Ποιος άλλος θα ξέρει καλύτερα; Πες του ότι θέλεις να το πουλήσεις και ρώτησέ τον πόσα μπορεί να πιάσει. Όμως, μην του το πουλήσεις όσα κι αν σου προσφέρει. Γύρισε πίσω με το δαχτυλίδι.”


Ο νεαρός καβάλησε το άλογο κι έφυγε πάλι. Ο κοσμηματοπώλης εξέτασε το δαχτυλίδι στο φως του κεριού, το κοίταξε με το φακό, το ζύγισε και μετά είπε στο παιδί: “Πες στο δάσκαλο, αγόρι μου, ότι αν θέλει να το πουλήσει αμέσως, δεν μπορώ να του δώσω παραπάνω από πενήντα οχτώ χρυσά φλουριά για το δαχτυλίδι του.” “Πενήντα οχτώ χρυσά;” φώναξε το παιδί. “Ναι” απάντησε ο κοσμηματοπώλης. “Βέβαια, με λίγη υπομονή θα μπορούσαμε να βγάλουμε γύρω στα εβδομήντα χρυσά φλουριά, όμως, αν είναι επείγον…”


Ο νεαρός έτρεξε συγκινημένος στο σπίτι του δασκάλου να του πει τα καθέκαστα.

“Κάθισε” του είπε ο δάσκαλος αφού τον άκουσε. “Είσαι κι εσύ σαν αυτό το δαχτυλίδι. ‘Ένα πολύτιμο και μοναδικό κόσμημα. Και σαν τέτοιο, πρέπει να σ΄ εκτιμήσει ένας αληθινός ειδικός. Γιατί στη ζωή σου γυρίζεις εδώ κι εκεί ζητώντας να εκτιμήσει ο καθένας την πραγματική σου αξία;” Και μ’ αυτά τα λόγια, έβαλε πάλι το δαχτυλίδι στο μικρό του δάχτυλο του αριστερού του χεριού.






80. “If You Want To Be Strong, Learn How to Fight alone”. If I have learnt one thing in life  it’s to fight. Fight for what’s right. Fight for what you believe in, what’s important to you. But most importantly, fight for the ones you love, and never forget to tell anyone how much they mean to you while they’re still alive. If you don’t fight for what you want, don’t cry for what you lost. (Source and photo: Google)




78. NO STORM LASTS FOR EVER. And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure in fact wether the storm is really is over. But one thing is for certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. It will never rain 365 days concecutively. Keep in mind that trouble comes to pass, not to stay. Don’t worry! No storm, not even the one in your life, can last forever. After a storm, comes a calm. If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm. Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path. Without rain nothing grows. Learn to embrace the storms of your life. A positive attitude can turn a storm into a sprinkle. You can’t calm a storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass. (Source: Google, photo: “The Storm”: painting by Pierre Auguste Cot)


77. Do not be afraid to try new things. They aren’t all going to work, but, when you find the one that does, you are going to be so proud of yourself for trying. Don’t let fear hold you back from experiencing life. Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t. You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. Do the thing you fear you cannot do. In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take. (Source + photos: Google)


76. Leaders’ voices need to be warm and gentle, assured, determined, and brimming with life force when they offer guidance and encouragement. Always acting with sincerity and integrity will allow you to become a bigger person, and to strengthen and deepen your faith. Encouraging others in trying circumstances is an act that brings great benefit. A confident voice reassures people. It is no exaggeration to say that “The voice makes the Leader”!

71. “Remember to look up at the stars and not down on your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exists. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up. However difficult life may seem there is always something you can do and succeed at” Stephen Hawking (or Stephen William Hawking) (Source: Google, kathimerini.gr, Youtube)




69. “If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission. You are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity, power over your life, or you can choose happiness instead. You have power over your mind, not outside events. Realise this, and you you will find strength. Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. You only have control over three things in your life: The thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take. You are the source of your pain. Even when someone hurts you, YOU CHOOSE how to struggle, resist, deny and receive. Do a hundred things right and someone will still point out the one thing you did wrong. You can’t control the way others treat you, only the way you react. Don’t let the ignorance of others turn you into someone you don’t really want to be. You have power over your mind, not outside events. When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way to respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is. It’s not what you say to everyone els that determines your life; it’s whwt you whisper to yourself that has the greatest power”.

67. “No matter what I have been through I’m still here. I have a history of Victory”. Steve Maraboli. Someone once asked me  how I hold my head up so high, after all I have been through. I said it’s because no matter what, I am a Survivor. I’m here, I’m not going anywhere, I’m going to be the same player I’ve always been. I’ll figure it out. I’ll make some tweaks, some changes, but I’m still coming. “It does not matter how slowly you go, as not as you do not stop”. Confucius

66. It’s ACTIONS, NOT words that matter! You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the RIGHT words at all the right times. But in the end, its always their actions you should judge them. Loyalty is hard to find…Trust is easy to lose…Actions speak louder than words! Characterise people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words…Learn to love without condition. Talk without bad intention. Give without any reason. And, most of all, care about people without any expectation. What you allow, is what will continue. Sometimes when the people you love hurt you the most, you’d better stay quiet because…if your love wasn’t enough… do you think your words that matter? Silence doesn’t mean that a person quits, it simply means that one doesn’t want to argue wiyh people who just don’t want to understand.


65. No matter how nice your pictures are or how real your quotes are… There Are Some people who will never hit the like button just because it’s  YOU! TOXIC people will not be changed by the alchemy of your kindness. YES, be kind, but MOVE ON swiftly and let LIFE be their educator. “I will not stay silent so that you stay comfortable”!

64. You can’t force chemistry to exist when it doesn’t. In the same way you can’t deny it when it does. Dreams come true when desire transforms into concrete actions. The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat. Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion and knowledge (Plato). Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive. It’s not about having the skill to do something. It’s about having the will, desire and commitment to be your best. Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same. Desires dictate our priorities. Priorities shape our choices, and, choices determine our actions. Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be? The stronger the desire, the greater the motivation. The greater the motivation, the greater the achievement. Attract What You Expect, Reflect What You Desire, Become What You Respect, Mirror What You Admire!

63. “Friendship is a tree to take shelter from the storm, to find shade of the blazing sun, to climb its branches to get a better view, and to swing from, when we are happy”. Don’t waste time on negative people…The world is filled with so many beautiful souls who know the meaning of HONESTY, ROYALTY and FRIENDSHIP. Focus your attention on them! But…never take friendship for granted. You never know what tomorrow holds. You are BRAVER than you believe, STRONGER than you seem, & SMARTER than you think. A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, allows you to grow. In prosperity our friends know us. In adversity, we know our friends. A real friend is one who listens, doesn’t judge, and somehow makes everything allright. A true friend is someone who will always love you -the imperfect, the confused, the wrong you- because that’s what people are supposed to do. Best friends are people who make your problems their problems, just so you don’t have to go through them alone. (Source: Google, dailymail.co.uk, www.FINEtoFAB.com)

61. Relationships  lead to success. No matter how technical the world gets, opportunities happen through people.  The most important single ingredient of success is knowing how to get with people. If people like you, they will listen to you, but if they trust you, they will do business with you. The way you tell your story matters, even if you are only telling it to yourself. No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. If you are unhappy, change something. Quit your job, move. Let go of a miserable relationship. Stop making excuses. You are in control. Work hard in silence. Let success make the noise. Do it for the people who want to see you fail. Most people don’t want to see you suceed because it will remind them that they didn’t. Don’t worry about what people think of you. There are always be those who want to see you fail, simply because, they can’t succeed. Some people will hate you, simply because they see you enjoying the success they don’t have from the work they haven’t done. Use your haters as stepping stones to get to the TOP.

60. Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. There are far better things ahead than the ones we leave behind. You were given THIS LIFE because you’re strong enough to live it. The truth is bad things don’t affect us profoundly as we expect them to. That’s true of good things, too. We adapt very quickly to either. Do all things with kindness. With confidence, you have won before you have started. Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional.Let this be a shine that you’ve got a big heart and aren’t afraid to let others see it. Showing your emotions is a sign of strength. (source + pic: Google)


59. Everyone wants to eat but few are willing to hunt. The world is a jungle. You either fight and dominate or hide and evaporate. A lion runs faster when he is hungry. If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you are fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat us because you didn’t eat him. It’s better to be a lion for a day, than  a sheep all your life. Make your hustle greater than your mouth. We can’t become what we want by remaining what we are. Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. Don’t be sad because you’re at a low level of success. Just remember, even the cub is a lion. The only thing that can stop me is me. Often, what hurts the most is what grows you the most. TAKE EVERY CHANCE, DROP EVERY FEAR. “It’s not over until I WIN “! (Sources:google, www.spiritanimal.info, brainy quote, photo: Google)


58. Elegance isn’t  solely defined by what you wear. It’s how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read. Own only what you can always carry with you: know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag. You’ll see in the world what you carry in your heart. Carry only what you need- in your pocket, in your home, in your heart. It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it. No matter how well you think you carry yourself, if you do not value yourself, it will show. And you’ll be treated by what people perceive you as. Know who you are and be confident in it. Know your worth and act on it.  Carry on, no matter what are the obstacles. Simply refuse to give up-and when the going gets tough, you get tougher, and, you WIN! (Source: Google, www.quotationspage.com, say quotable, picturequotes.com, photo: Google).


57. “Many people have goals. Some will make a plan. Few will act upon them. Be amongst those few. You won’t regret it. Remember, the universe doesn’t give you what you ask for with your thoughts. It gives you what you demand with your actions. My strategy for success you ask? I don’t just verbalize. I demonstrate. Try it for yourself and watch each day come alive. Do what is right, not what is easy. Everything is energy. Your thought begins it, your emotion amplifies it, and your action increases the momentum. TAKE ACTION. Wanting is not enough; Act upon your goals! If somebody was watching your day -to-day behavior would they be able to see what you’re working towards? what your goals are? If the answer is no, FIX IT“.

56. I love to be around some people…I love to stay away from others…Some people come in our life as blessings, others come in our life as lessons…Let’s keep people in our life that truly love…motivate…inspire…encourage…enhance…make us happy …sometimes we have to just let go and see what happens…Let’s remember to give the ones we love wings to fly…roots to come back…reasons to stay…Relationships are about give and give…not about take and take…Let’s aim to improve…to be better than we were before…Let’s always believe something wonderful is going to happen…even with all ups and downs never a day should be taken for granted… Everything happens for a reason…Let’s make good decisions…Let’s keep trying to find our way…Everything is going to be alright…maybe noy today, but eventually…Knowing is not enough;we must apply…willing is not enough; we must do…Always open eyes and heart to a truly precious gift: TODAY!

55. “Healthy curiosity is a great key in innovation. Every challenge you encounter in life is a fork in the road. You have the choice to choose which way to go – backward, forward, breakdown or breakthrough. To fulfill your vision, you must have hindsight, insight and foresight. Success is not money, cars, fame or material possessions but the lives you touched positively.Growth is never an event, it’s a process. Youths are the life blood of any nation.” Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

53. Your mind will answer more questions, if you learn to relax and wait for the answer. We will be more Successful, in all our endeavors if we can let go of the habit of running all the time and take little pauses to relax and re-center ourselves and we’ll also have a lot more joy in living. Everything is impermanent, knowing this, just relax. Have faith that things will work out. All that is important comes in quietness and waiting. Relax, Refresh, Recharge!

52. The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience….Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not everyday is going to be a good day , that’s just the way it is. You gain strength, courage and confidence, by every experience in which you stop look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself “I’ve lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along”. Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and Success Achieved! Source: www.brainy quote.com, photo: Google

42. “You deserve someone who replies fast. You deserve someone who never gets tired of your pointless stories. You deserve someone who will show their eagerness to talk to you every minute of the day. You deserve someone to make you feel like you actually matter. You can’t just give up on someone because the situation is not ideal. Great relationships aren’t great because they have no problems. They’re great because both people care enough about the other person to find a way to make it work. Wait for the person who pursues you, the one who will make an ordinary moment seem magical, the kind of person who brings out the best in you and makes you want to be a better person. Wait for the person who will be your best friend, the only person who will drop everything to be with you at any time no matter what the circumstances. The best feeling in the world is being with someone who wants you as much as you want them”. Source: Google

34. “Start ignoring people who threaten your joy. Literally ignore them. Say nothing. Don’t invite any parts of them into your space. You have to love yourself because no amount of love from others is sufficient to fill the yearning that your requires from YOU. People who uplift you are the best kind of people. You don’t simply keep them.You have to treasure them. Stand up against dishonesty without having to go down to the level of dishonest people. Don’t get even. Instead, elevate your peace and understanding. If someone has offended you, insulted you, or, disappointed you, LET IT GO. If you are remembering all the ways you have been hurt or forgotten, Ask yourself: What good does it do for me to hold on to this? When you feel disrespected by them, remember to love and accept every bit of you. It repels the negative energy they are bringing. Beneath the pain is a lesson. Beneath the sorrow is hope. Beneath the struggle is courage. When it seems all is lost, you find what you really need. Don’t ever put your happiness into someone else’s hands. They’ll drop it. They’ll drop it every time. It’s always better to be alone with dignity than in a relationship that constantly requires you to sacrifice your happiness and self esteem”.

33. “There will be times in your life when you have to choose between being loved and being respected. Always pick being respected, that love without respect, is always fleeting – but that respect could grow into real, lasting love”.

32. “Today remember to keep walking forward. Today if anything is trying to hold you back, give no attention to it. Get your hopes up, get your faith up, look up, and get ready to rise up. You will be met with many obstacles in life, but always know you are capable of  great things. Keep going on your path.Embrace who you are and your divine purpose. Identify the barriers in your life, and develop discipline, courage and the strength to permanently move beyond them. Don’t spend your life wondering “what if” and worrying over something you have no control. What’s done is done. Even small positive shifts in thinking, create huge results if you are consistent in your efforts.When the vision is clear, the results will appear. Keep your mindset positive as you work your plan, flourish, and always remember why you started. Looking backwards will cause you to miss out on new blessings ahead. Move on. It’s up to you to keep on walking. Don’t stop believing,
Don’t be afraid of change,
Don’t underestimate yourself,
Don’t make excuses,
Don’t cheat yourself,
Don’t ever ever STOP!”

31. “When someone shows you how little you mean to them and you keep coming back for more, before you know it, you start to mean less to yourself. You are not made up of compartments! You are one whole person! What gets said to you gets said to all of you, ditto what gets done. Being treated like shit is not an amusing game or a transgressive intellectual experiment. It’s something you accept, condone, and learn to believe you deserve. This is so simple. But I tried so hard to make it complicated. Respect isn’t something you command through intimidation and intellectual bullying. It’s something you build through a long life of treating people how you want to be treated. The end never comes when you think it will. It’s always ten steps past the worst moment, then a weird turn to the left.”   Lena Dunham

30. “When people say they love you, you expect they mean it. When you give your trust to those you care about, you expect they will not break it. When you work hard on a dream, you expect everything will fall int place. It is a human nature to have expectations. However you must pour a liberal amount of reason into your life, so that when people do what they do and things won’t go as planned, you learn to accept things as they are and muster the courage to release what is beyond your control. Do not let failed expectations make you think you deserve less in life. Things will not always go your way, but don’t use that as a reason to diminish what you can do with your life”.


29. Doors…

“Your existence has many doors, and each serves a purpose that ultimately helps define who you are. Sometimes it is hard to open these doors.


Often you would think it just won’t work. It takes patience and perseverance, but you must believe that you already have every key for each door you encounter.


Imagine your heart as the keychain where all the keys you will ever need in your lifetime are dangling, waiting for you to use”!

27. “Ah…kindness…what a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is Love to be found in this world”.



“When I am afraid,

I will trust in you.

In God, whose word I praise,

In God I trust; I will not be afraid.

What can mortal man do to me?”

(Psalm 56:3-4, repeated in similar words in verses 10-11.

How Many “Fear Nots” are There in the Bible?

“Fear not!” is the most repeated command in the Bible. In fact, it’s been said that there are 365 “Fear nots” in the Bible — one “Fear not” for every day of the year!

God doesn’t want us to go a single day without hearing his word of comfort: “Fear not!”

So why are there more than 365 “Fear nots” in the Bible?

“Fear” is spoken of over 500 times in the KJV.

Furthermore, in addition to the “Fear nots” many times the Bible teaches us to “Fear God,” which really means reverence God alone and do not fear anyone or anything else. Expanding the search to look at verses encouraging us not to worry or not to be anxious would add many, many more “Fear not” Scriptures. This is why I say that there are more than 365 “Fear nots” in the Bible. Lloyd Ogilvie

The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness, to an opponent tolerance, to a friend your heart, to your child a good example, to your father deference, to your mother conduct that will make her proud of you, to yourself respect, to all others, charity”. Benjamin Franklin


23. “Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most you are in, now. Some people wait for 5.00 pm, all week for Friday, all their lives for happiness. Don’t be one of them. Don’t wait until your life is almost over, to realize how good it could have been. The good life begins right now, when you stop waiting for a better one. Don’t wait for things to get better, easier, simpler. Do it right now. Sometimes “later” becomes never. Life will always be complicated. Learn to be happy right now. Otherwise you’ll  run out of time. If you wait for perfect conditions, you’ll never get anything done. Look for ways to be happy every day”.

22. “Showing affection is important in any close relationship, because it is the means by which people demonstrate that they do still care about the other. We cannot survive without human affection. Care does not need powerful eyes or a cute voice, or a lovely face. It always needs a beautiful responsible heart. All the beautiful sentiments in the world, weigh less than a single lovely action. Someday, someone’s going to look at you, like you are the best in the world. The wrong person makes you beg for attention, affection, love and commitment. The right person, give you these, because they love you. You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandon, or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don;t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent on other people’s acceptance of you. It’s something inherent”.

20. Before we set our hearts too much upon anything, let us examine how happy they are, who already possess it. Francois de La Rochefoucauld (From: Brainy quotes)



“Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.” Harvey MacKay




Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”

“I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, “But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said,
“It made a difference for that one.”

― Loren Eiseley

14. The Law of Garbage truck

Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they look for a place to dump it. And if you let them, they’ll dump it on you. So when someone wants to dump on you, don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Believe me. You’ll be happier.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on! Don’t take their garbage and spread it on other people at work, at home, or, on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let Garbage Trucks take over their lives.
