" Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good."
Vaclav Havel

" I believe that the power to chart your destiny is only within thyself. Not within others, but only within thyself. It is very complicated and hard to have substantially rich beliefs and intuitions about shaping it the way we want it to be. Hence, we must develop physical, mental, and spiritual skills in order that we may be honing ourselves the right way. I believe that inclining yourself towards the common good is especially the best way to overcome any trial in the odyssey of life. You have only one life, one chance to prove your thirst in this vast world; one chance to do all the things you want, one chance to be yourself."

" The power to fulfill your destiny is within you; the battle over your life and the struggle you are in is about what you were born, called, and gifted to do. Life may have knocked you down but it hasn't knocked you out. Stand on your dreams, draw on your faith, hold on, and when the smoke clears, rise up and announce, 'By the grace of God, I'm back'."

Everything about life is about holding on.

" There is a superior wisdom above us, who doesn't act according to our wishes. When your efforts fail, turn to this wisdom through meditation. You will get startling answers and solutions you thought didn't exist."
Written in 2008 by S. Dasgupta --- India
I experienced this personally when I was repeatedly failing to publish papers with well-known refereed journals. I focused on the problem with regular meditation and success followed! We often face repeated failures in life, as I faced and we often give up the effort, thinking it's useless, thus forego a rare once-in-a-lifetime chance to make it big. It is at this juncture, that we must turn to meditation and prayers to get true answers from the superior wisdom: GOD. Yes! It can happen that the answer is: QUIT. But the efforts put on the failed project will certainly come in handy in another project; hard work never goes waste.

" Love is not just a feeling, but also a presence. I see and feel your presence everywhere. I hear you in my head. You are an inexorable part of me. You are my new conscience. A happy man can only be happy when he loves himself. I love my best parts most. And that's how I know I love you above all else."

" Problems and difficult times are sure to come our way, at one time or the other, as long as we remain flesh and blood. But having the understanding that our condition, at anytime in life, IS never our portion for a lifetime gives us the strength to press on."
Written in 2008 by Kingsley Ajoku --- Nigeria
I have come to know that every problem of life has an expiry date; though it lingers, it must pass in its time.

" To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony."
William Ellery Channing --- Submitted by Lauren Covington --- New Jersey

" We can all be angels to one another. We can choose to obey the still small stirring within, the little whisper that says, Go. Ask. Reach out. Be an answer to some one's plea. You have a part to play. Have faith. We can decide to risk that He is indeed there, watching, caring, cherishing us as we love and accept love. The world will be a better place for it. And wherever they are, the angels will dance."
Joan Wester Anderson
