If you are never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take chances. It is better to light a small candle than to curse the darkness. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life, but define yourself. Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing. How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity? He said the one crucial thing that helped him was his ability to visualise: what would it be like to be riding on the end of a light beam? The rich substance of the Universe is yours to do with as you wish. Why settle for so little in life when you can have so much, just be daring to be different in your thinking.

Many talk like the sea but their lives are stagnant marshes. Others raise their heads above the mountain tops, while their souls cling to the dark walls of caves How was Einstein able to conceive the Theory of Relativity? He said the one crucial thing that helped him was his ability to visualise: what would it be like to be riding on the end of a light beam? You do not have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things, to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.
Do or do not. There is no try. When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff …and it’s All Small Stuff. Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits. You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision, for the limits of the world. We achieve a sense of self from what we do for ourselves and how we develop our capacities. If all your efforts have gone into developing others, you are bound to feel empty. TAKE YOUR TURN NOW. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go.
