" When walking in the forests of life and you become lost... take the path least worn, for that is the one that leads somewhere."
Written in 2009 by Clint E. --- Texas
I developed this... as a helpful push in the right direction for people who might need it. Sometimes what seems like a horrible idea could be the smartest one, for the path least worn led somewhere, because the others that took it didn't have to come back :)

" Attitude is Destiny. Where are you heading to? "
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Daisy Da Veiga --- Holland
I know I read 'attitude is destiny' somewhere. I added the question 'Where are you heading to?' This is because I like people to stop for a moment and think what they are doing with their lives. What is going in the direction they want to and what isn't and also to think what they can do to change it? I believe attitude says it all. So think about your attitude and what direction in life you're taking. If you're happy with it, keep moving. If you're not, change direction and continue moving.

" We are valued, not solely on the end part of what we strive for, sometimes it's more about how we reached that part. More so, even if we weren't successful, the fact we strived and believed in ourselves already feels like winning. Always have faith in yourself and try to search your inner self because it all starts from your inner core."
Written in 2009 by James Padilla --- Philippines
You'll end up always winning.

" It takes two to tango, but one may always decline the invitation to dance."

We need to take responsibility for our own role in a conflict. If it takes two to tango and you don't like it, why dance in the first place?

" I see life similar to a journey; a journey can be smooth, sometimes it can be bumpy, it has its ups and it has its down. Sometimes the downs seen infinite but this doesn't shake the driver because their eyes are fixed on the destination."
Copyright © 2009 Benedict Mulenga
I said these words to a friend of mine when he felt overwhelmed by life's troubles, I totally forgot about it until months later he said, "Ben, thanks a lot. What you said pushed me through my troubles and now I am free." So I thought to myself that if these words could help my friend, they could also help someone else because as most of us know, 'the tongue is the most powerful weapon ever' and logically words are the strongest ammunition.

" World is very big and Life is small. So don't waste your time hating someone or making enemies. Love yourself; Love everyone."
Written in 2009 by Viral Katira --- India
I wrote the above quote and it is for all. Sometimes, in today's life, we start to hate a person due to a misunderstanding. When that person goes far away from us, then we realize how important that relationship was. I am speaking about every relationship.
