Captivating Lines from Here and There - 8

  • Three factors are invariably found in a strong nation- A collective pride in its achievements, unity and the ability for combined action - APJ Abdul Kalam, Former President & nuclear Scientist
  • I have always been the opposite of a paranoid.I operate as if everyone is a part of a plot to enhance my well being - Standale, author of "Fantasies can set you free"
  • Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone - Robert Allen,Coauthor"One minute millionaire"
  • Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.It is our light not darkness that most frightens us.We ask ourselves "Who am I to be be brilliant, gorgeous,talented and fabulous?" Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God;your playing small doesn't serve the world- Marianne Williamson, American Spiritual teacher
  • Total commitment is not just hard work.It is total involvement- Von Braun, aerospace engineer
  • Criticism is the opposite of encouragement, despite the attempt to label it "constructive criticism". Criticism is used to compete,to compare and reduce the victim, all of this disguised as being "for your own good".Criticism tears down people, encouragement builds them up- From the book  'Slug Manual' by Jennifer James
  •  The world is full of people who establish their worth by secret comparison and overt criticism- 'Slug Manual'
  • People may forget what you said to them.People may forget what you do to them but they will never forget the way you made them feel.
  • I can accept failure.Everyone fails at something.But I can't accept not trying- Michael Jordan, Basketball player
  • Do not look for others' faults but rather for their virtues and the virtues in the self will be magnified.For what we think upon, that we become - Edgar Cayce, American mystic
