Ships Are Safe in the Harbour (poem, author unknown)
All I live for is now
All I stand for is where and how
All I wish for are magic momentsAs I sail through change
My resolve remains the same
What I chose are magic momentsBecause ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are made for
The mind could stretch much further
But it seems that is not what our minds are trained forWe call for random order
You can’t control Mother nature’s daughter
Ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are built for
The witch hunter roams
The scary thing is that he’s not alone
He’s trying to down my magic moments
As we sail through change
Ride the wind of a silent rage
And sing laments of magic moments
Winning starts with beginning.
You’re only one conversation away from resolving what might be challenging you.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is NOW.
Some men have thousands of reason why they cannot do what they want to do, when all they need is one reason why they can.
Willis R Whitney
We are or we become those things we repeatedly do. Therefore excellence can become not just an event but a habit.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before beginning to improve the world.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
What would you attempt to achieve if you knew you could never fail?
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
Our passions are not too strong, they are too weak. We are far too easily pleased.
They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
To be awake is to be alive.
Henry David Thoreau
Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her; but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.
Never give up by Nick Vujicic
If you throw dirt, you lose ground.
Our doubts are traitors that make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the masters; seek what they sought.
I began to understand that the promises of the world are for the most part vain phantoms, and that to have faith in oneself and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.
Hatred is only love going in the wrong direction.
If you are going to seek revenge, you’d better dig two graves.
Fear knocked at the door, faith answered, and no one was there.
What lies between us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The unexamined life is not worth living.
Obstacles are those frightful things we see when we take our eyes off our goal.
One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his greatest surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.
You see things; and say why? But I dream things that never were; and say why not!
George Bernard Shaw
Knowing and not doing is the same as not knowing.
George Bernard Shaw
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic”
delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910
If you are facing in the right direction, all you need to do is keep walking. Buddhist proverb Hatred is only love going in the wrong direction.
You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do.
Sell your cleverness and purchase your bewilderment.
RumiIf you want to stay the same, what do you need to do?
Power is nothing without control.
*The Final Analysis*
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is all between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
If you can’t be a good example,then you’ll just have to be a horrible
To become experienced, you need experiences.
You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your head.
For fast acting relief from stress, try slowing down.
