" Our Life is perhaps like a song. It has its high and low notes, but it all fits into a beautiful melody."

" In the hardest times of life, keep your head high and remember that your everyday actions will affect you in the way you live your life and raise your family. If you love your family, that's a sacrifice. It isn't just about you any more; it's you and your family. Love is a gift not an obligation. To find out if you really love your family think about this: Have you really sacrificed yourself for your family? If so, you're doing the right thing."

" Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop trying to figure out precisely how we feel, and sometimes we just have to say, 'whatever happens, happens'."

" Feel happy for others. This world is full of selfish people. Each one is concerned just about his own self. He that is a common man just prays for himself, just for getting his own wish fulfilled. He feels his problem is the biggest. He wants himself to be happy and have the best life no matter how the others live. But guys, just think for a moment. Is it right to be so self centered? Just give some time thinking about others, helping them with their problems, feel happy in their happiness instead of getting jealous. Come out of your self-obsessed world. You'll have a great satisfaction when you see someone has smiled because of you. You'll feel like wow! Not only this, you'll also get that person's blessings. Believe in brotherhood and life will be good to you."
