    "Better to be a fool with a friend than proud and lonely."
    Copyright © 2003 Clarissa Marsh
    When you have hurt someone you care about admit where you're wrong and say "sorry", no matter how foolish you may feel. There is great humility in love and friendship. It's better than losing someone you love.

    Recipe for success:

    1. Wake up early in the morning (before the sun rise)
    2. Stand facing the east
    3. Say to the sun 'I'll defeat you today and I'm gonna beat you everyday'
    4. Start your day with a perfect smile on your face.

    "When dealing with adversity never forget the possible intervention of good fortune."
    Copyright © 2003 Alan Chow
    In a crisis there is a tendency that as the 'sh_t has hit the fan' the circumstances will all be contrary and require action. One always forgets that, as anything unfolds, elements of the positive are present as well as the obvious negative. It is both a matter of perspective and a simple matter of probability. Nothing is all good or all bad.

    "If you are not a part of the solution, you are a big part of the problem."
    Author Unknown --- Submitted by Ilampooranan P. --- Pondy, India
    Most times we focus too much on the problem to find a solution. Four steps to solve it are:
  1. Face the fact that there is a problem
  2. Define the problem clearly
  3. Identify a solution
  4. Never talk about the problem again, only the solution
