Captivating Lines from Here and There-19

  • The therapeutic successes of non-medical healers throughout the ages must be evaluated in the light of the capacity for self healing that exists in all living forms and particularly in human beings - From the book " Anatomy of illness" by Norman Cousins 
  • The answer to helplessness is not so very complicated. A man can do something for peace without having to jump into politics Each man has inside him a basic decency and goodness - Don Pablo Casals, Musician 
  • Shop burnt! House burnt!Goods burnt! but Faith not burnt! Starting business tomorrow!
  • Never depend on your genius. If you have talent,industry will improve it; if you do not, industry will supply the deficiency- John Ruskin, Art critic
  • Far too many people short circuit their chances of success due to a low self image- Paul.J. Meyer, Author & success Guru 
  • 'Complex' means there are many parts to the problem. ' Complicated' means you cannot distinguish one part from the other. When you become egotistical in a situation, you complicate it.
  • If you see a situation as 'complicated' you will remain lost. If you see it as 'complex' and analyse the various parts, you will find several simple obvious answers.Put them all together and you will have your solution.
  • "The feeling of fear" seems complicated until you take it apart- eg. Are you afraid of flying or are you afraid of crashing?
  • The digital world is pretty biased in that way. Your failures are personal and your success is public.If we constantly live in such a biased world, our expectations from life also become biased, where small failures become massive and big successes look small.-
     Sathyarth Priyedarshi, Head of marketing, Jio chat.
  • If man  listens to the goodness and acts on it, he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage for a man to listen to his own goodness and act on it. Do we dare to be ourselves? This is the question that counts.-  Don Pablo Casals, musician

This quote to my mind draws attention to the other side of the coin when the impact of failure also can be huge for some who can't handle it.
