" Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you."
Jim Rohn

You were born with potential
You were born with goodness and trust
You were born with ideals and dreams
You were born with greatness
You were born with wings
You are not meant for crawling, so don't
You have wings
Learn to use them, and fly
Rumi

" We all are Islands with Invisible Bridges."
Written in 2008 by Jeton Lajqi --- Brazil
I am from Kosova. Today this quote came to my mind and I wanted to share it.


July 23, 2008
We all have a choice
To live a lie
Or be ourselves
To laugh and cry
Or to follow someone else

To look up and smile
Or bow down and frown
To walk the whole mile
Or take off our crown

We have a choice
To shout out loud
Or chant a whisper
To fly through the clouds
Or to be blown like paper

To conquer our fear
Or hide in the shadow
To the wise words hear
Or be thrown out the window

We all have a choice
To climb our highest mountain
Or fall into our deepest hole
To drink from life's fountain
Or live life like a troubled soul

To learn love in the heart
Or grasp to hate with regret
To wake up and start
Or sleep until sunset

We all have a choice
To speak truly with ourselves
Or go against what seems

We all have a choice
To fulfill our greatest dreams

" The supreme prayer of my heart is not to be learned, rich, famous, powerful, or "good", but simply to be radiant. I desire to radiate health, cheerfulness, calm courage, and good will. I wish to live without hate, whim, jealousy, envy, fear. I wish to be simple, honest, frank, natural, clean in mind and clean in body, unaffected - as ready to say "I do not know", if it be so, and to meet all men on an absolute equality - to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid. I wish others to live their lives, too - up to their highest, fullest, and best. To that end I pray that I may never meddle, interfere, dictate, give advice that is not wanted, or assist when my services are not needed. If I can help people, I'll do it by giving them a chance to help themselves; and if I can uplift or inspire, let it be by example, inference, and suggestion, rather than by injunction and dictation. That is to say, I desire to be radiant - to radiate life."

" Someone may have hurt you in the past when you were young and innocent. Anger and hate you felt, a natural feeling to have, but then forgiveness and restoration is also possible and appropriate and it feels good to give up hatred."

I feel this way.

" Although we may feel sorry for the person who plunges to their death, we should feel more sorry for the person who never even gets in the air."

This week I broke free from an invisible prison. This prison was the "play it safe, you have too much to risk/lose" prison. After 26 years, and knowing or seeing 3 people who were close to me in some shape or form, take a fatal plunge.... I went in the air, on a "powered parachute"! The most crazy, most exhilarating, and FREEING thing I have done thus far in my life! We climbed 1200 feet in the air, and flew right over my house on a beautiful summer night! The flight was one hour in duration.

" If you strongly desire something with your heart, the whole world conspires to fulfill your desire. Desire, dream and work hard to fulfill it! Yes, idle dreaming never helps so you should work hard and leave the rest for the God and the world. Your desires will be fulfilled - ALWAYS!"
Tejaswini C. Jambotkar --- Submitted by Mandar Jambotkar --- Australia
Several of our dreams are DEPENDANT on many of other things to happen, so several times we leave Hope! But instead, desire...VISUALIZE what you want, then experience the magic! Yes, Magic. The whole conspires to fulfill your dream. If you still don't believe, try it!

" Think Positive * Act Positive * Achieve Positive"
Written in 2007 by Faisal Ahmed --- Pakistan
This quote was an essence of my life till now. Now as I am 27, this is the only thing that I would like others to know. And I hope, if we seriously think on this line, then it's truly very positive.

" I BELONG TO ALL: I am neither an eastern man nor a western man. I don't belong to any country, to any nation, to any religion. Because if you belong to any country, you cannot belong to all. And if you belong to any religion, all religions cannot be yours. I don't belong to any. I have no roots in any country, in any religion, in any partial humanity."

" Sometimes you have to speak up, even if they don't want to hear it, because if you don't you are not being true to your self."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Chaoz Loma --- Philippines
I can relate to this quote because sometimes I'm afraid to speak my mind and then I realized that you have to stand up for yourself and let the world know who you really are.

" Failure is just nature's polite way of saying, 'Not yet, my dear.'"
Written in 2008 by Munya Mutema --- Zimbabwe
Many people are not living up to their best capabilities due to what I call failure fear. They are afraid of failure, therefore many are satisfied with not trying.

" The first question which you will ask and which I must try to answer is this, "What is the use of climbing Mount Everest?" and my answer must at once be, "It is no use." There is not the slightest prospect of any gain whatsoever. Oh, we may learn a little about the behavior of the human body at high altitudes, and possibly medical men may turn our observation to some account for the purposes of aviation. But otherwise nothing will come of it. We shall not bring back a single bit of gold or silver, not a gem, nor any coal or iron. We shall not find a single foot of earth that can be planted with crops to raise food. It's no use. So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for."

" You are well equipped with an incredible potential for absorbing knowledge. Let your imagination, the key to learning and memory, unleash that brain power and propel you along at ever-increasing speeds. It's not an exclusive path with access granted only to those with a special gift for learning. It is, instead, available to everyone who has a brain. Anything's possible."
Dominic O'Brien --- Submitted by Tania Saghir --- Pakistan
This quotation impressed me personally, so I thought to share with all friends. Try to read it with full concentration and get its deep meaning. Hope it will benefit you.

People think that they can succeed in life without preparing for their future and also while they are playing with opportunities.
