Seven thought provoking gems.

Today is the fifth day of The Festival of words.We  have two days more the festival to come to an end. I am listing 7 quotations which are true for all times to come. Hope my readers will like them.

1:          .Don't cry it is over; smile that it has happened"
              Dr. Suees

            Some people keep cribbing about what they could/would have achieved. Every thing which has passed away will never come. We must not think of the past. We should be satisfied and thank God for his mercies.


2         .“In three words I can sum up everything I've learnt about life,it goes on.” 
                                     Robert Frost

                  We must live in the present. Time and tide wait for none.Life will go on, so let us                          also move forward.


3        .“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as                                though everything is a miracle.”   
                           Albert  Einstein

            We must live a life of contentment.  Look  forward everyday .                    Every morning brings a new hope and new experiences. What we                    could not achieve is best forgotten.


 4,     Life is what we make it,always has been, always will be.                               Grandma Moses.

          Whatever we do and how so ever we perform will  make or mar                  our future.


5.     “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live  for ever.
             Mahatma Gandhi

          Whatever work has been assigned to us must be completed.Don't postpone it.
           Make  efforts to imbibe good thoughts, and actions and make them your                       second nature.



6.   “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the                            world.” 
               Nelson Mandela

       An educated person  has the capability to impress and reform others        They can, by their good actions and behaviour  bring about a  change            in   the  society


7.      Grace has  been defined as outward harmony of the inward soul.
         William Hazlitt


          If our heart is pure  and full of good thoughts our actions will be                   noble and  and pleasing.
