" Success is good to taste. It is dear to everyone. It is a great experience. But we should have the ability to handle success. If we don't have the ability to handle it, it's better we don't get it. We should always remember that success, if not handled properly, has ample power to corrupt a man. It is a great achievement to achieve success and still remain humble. It keeps us successful throughout our life."

" Isn't it amazing, that we, a creation, can continue to create? Even if the creation is a story or sculpture, these create emotions, which go on to create thoughts in others minds, causing an incredible cycle with endless possibilities. What a shame it would be if we never created a thing the whole time on this earth, breaking a remarkable chain."
--- Copyright 2006 Samantha Mcinerney
I wrote this for myself when I started year 12, and it's gotten me through so far, reminding me to push on, if not for me, for someone else.

" If you are not strong, your fate depends on those who are stronger."
--- Written in 2006 by Savan Gandhi --- India
This thought is a practical thought. What it means is if you are weak (in any sense e.g. Money, Power, Knowledge), then it is like your fate depends on the people who are stronger than you. This would not be observed in normal circumstances, but yes we also need to consider the worst case. You know the jungle rule. This thought only elaborates the worst case. Everyone should be prepared for the worst case, as life is not always smooth. That's my opinion. This thought is a warning or alert for all the weak ones. Weak ones have to get up.
