My Quotes.......

Since childhood i have a habit of collecting quotes and making a note of it in my dairy given by my father.I don't remember exactly from when i started collecting,but i have a good number of them written in my dairy.When ever i am down,i read these quotes.Here are some which i like the most :-

"Our happiness and peace of mind lies in our doing what we regard as right and proper not doing what others say or so".

"Try hard to get what you like OR else you are forced to like what you get".

"To accomplish great things we must not only act but dream, not only plan but also believe".

"Never forget that it takes only one person or one idea to change your life forever".

"Don't forget that we are ultimately judged by what we give,not by what we get".

"Be aware of the silent conversation you hold with your self".

"If someone pelts you with stones,do not quarrel with him, rather try to raise yourself to such a height that the stones cannot reach you".

"No one is so powerful that he can harm others without harming himself".

"Worry often gives small things a big shadow".

"It is useless to tell a river to stop running; the best thing is to learn how to swim in the direction it is flowing".

"If you want to be successful,display enough courage to welcome failures".

"Home is a place where,when you have to go there,they have to take you in".--Robert Frost.

"There is nothing either good or bad.But thinking makes it so".--Shakespeare

"Nothing dies faster than a new idea in a closed mind".

"Experience is not what happens to man.It is what a man does with what happens to him".

"Remember that you can miss a lot of good things in life by having the wrong attitude".

"Children come through us.They don't belong to us.

It is not bow to decide where the arrow should go; the bow man knows it,

He decides it.----Swami Chinmayananda

"The most delightful surprise in life is suddenly recognizing your own worth".

"Darkest hour is just before the dawn".

"A prompt thank you is always effective than a two page letter of gratitude sent a week later".

"Anger is only one letter short of danger".

Nice qoutes Varunavi, I too had had this habit of collecting quotes and I used to write on the top of every page of my diary.

I liked this one,

Very good and interesting post, as usual, Varunavi.

These are my husband's lines, too. He often quotes them and follows them:

'Try hard to get what you like OR else you are forced to like what you get".

"To accomplish great things we must not only act but dream, not only plan but also believe".

"To accomplish great things we must not only act but dream, not only plan but also believe".

"Never forget that it takes only one person or one idea to change your life forever".

My husband read this post now and loved these lines.

I love these lines:

'Nothing dies faster than a new idea in a closed mind".

"Darkest hour is just before the dawn".

"A prompt thank you is always effective than a two page letter of gratitude sent a week later".

Thank you, Varunavi, with a looong comment!
