The Journey is So Short

A young lady sat in a public transport. An old grumpy lady came and sat by her side as she bumped into her with her numerous bags. The person sitting on the other side of her got upset, asking the young lady why she did not speak up and say something.

The young lady responded with a smile, 'It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop.'

The response deserves to be written in golden letters in our daily behaviour and everywhere: It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short.

If each one of us could realise that our passage down here has such a short duration, to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, ingratitude and bad attitudes would be a waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short...

Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short...

Whatever penalty anyone serves us, let's remember that our journey together is so short...

Let us therefore be filled with gratitude and sweetness. Sweetness is a virtue never likened to bad character nor cowardice, but better likened to greatness.

Our journey together down here is really short and cannot be reversed... No one knows the duration of his journey.

No one knows if he will have to alight at the next stop.

Let us therefore cherish and hold on to friends and family! Let us be cal, respectful, kind, thankful and forgiving to each other. If I've hurt you, I ask your forgiveness. But please remember: The journey down here is so short...

Shakespeare said...

I always feel happy, you know why?
Because I don't expect anything from anyone, expectations always hurt...
Life is short, so love your life.
Be happy, and keep smiling. Just live for yourself.
Before you speak, listen.
Before you write, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you hurt, feel.
Before you hate, love.
Before you quit, try.
Before you die, live.

Food for thought

Don't walk in front of me... I may not follow...
Don't walk behind me... I may not lead...
Just walk beside me... And be my friend...

Confidence comes naturally with success, but success comes only to those who are confident. So begin your day with confidence.

The seeds of kindness you plant today will bloom in the hearts of those that you touch, forever.

Spend your time on those who love you unconditionally. Don't waste it on those who only love you when the conditions are right for them.

Best philosophy in life is to keep the mind happy! We don't know whether success gives happiness or not, but a happy mind can always lead to success!

Failures are part of life...
If you don't fail, you don't learn..
If you don't learn, you'll never change.

Happiness keeps you sweet,
Trials keep you strong,
Sorrows keep you human,
Failures keep you humble,
Success keeps you glowing,
But only God keeps you going.

Life is a trip.
The only problem is that it doesn't come with a map...
We have to search our own routes to reach our destination.

Don't be afraid to start over. It gives you a chance to build something even better.

If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher. - A P J Abdul Kalam

We come with nothing, we go with nothing, but one great thing we can achieve in our beautiful life is... a little remembrance in someone's mind and a small place in someone's heart.

If you cannot find the right words for the certain situation, just give a smile. Words may confuse, but a smile always convinces!

Some people are poor financially but so rich by heart.

You can not change your future, but you can change your habits, and surely your habits will change your future. - Dr Abdul Kalam

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving, otherwise you will fall.

In the journey of life, we pass pleasures and pain.
There will be sunshine and rain,
There will be loss and gain.
But we must learn to smile again and again.

A tree that wants to touch the sky must extend its roots into the earth. The more it wants to rise upwards, the more it has to grow downwards. So to rise in life, we must be down to earth, humble and grateful.

Golden time of our life may not return back forever but the good relation and the golden memories will stay in the heart forever.

If you have the spirit of understanding everything in a positive way... you'll enjoy each and every moment of life, whether it's pressure or pleasure!

Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule, but love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

Rumours are carried by haters, spread by fools and accepted by idiots.

The most useful asset of a person is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, with ears open to listen and hand willing to help.

Happiness is a choice. Yeah, things in life make it difficult, but at the end of the day you control your own happiness.

Honesty is a very expensive gift. Don't expect it from cheap people. - Warren Buffet

In every religion there is love, but love has no religion.

The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you don't stop.

Missing someone isn't about how long since you've seen them or the amount of time you've talked to them. It's about that very moment when you're doing something and wishing they were right there with you.

Kindness makes you the most beautiful person in the world no matter what you look like.

A beautiful dress can change the personality. However, a beautiful behaviour can change the whole life! Change your dress as often as you like, but wear your best behaviour permanently.

Millions of tress in the world are accidentally planted by squirrels - who bury nuts, then forget where they hid them. Do good and forget. It'll grow some day.

Sugar and salt may be mixed together, but ants reject the salt and carry away only sugar.
We are also surrounded with infinite choices and possibilities...
The art is to select the right people and right choices in life to make your life sweeter and successful.

Life will never be perfect, but the perfect moments make it all worthwhile.

The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of wind.
But the goodness of person spreads in all directions.

Don't care about what other people think of you. There will always be those people who want to see you fail because they can't succeed.

Start your Day with Positive Thoughts

Life is all about three things - winning, losing and sharing.
Winning others' heart, losing bad things and sharing happy moments.

Life is better when you are happy, but it is even better when other people are happy because of you, so share happiness everywhere in the environment.

You will never get what you want until you are thankful for what you have.

The beauty of the morning is not in the freshness of the atmosphere. It is in the freshness of our thoughts and feelings of how we wish to start our day.

Many people are able to speak about beautiful things but only a a few of them are able to listen, because listening requires mind power.

Happiness is one of our greatest gifts. It is to be shared, cherished, and enjoyed every day of our lives.

One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

Where there is great love there are always miracles. - Willa Cather

In life we all haven an unspeakable secret, an irreversible regret, a broken promise, an irreplaceable lost, and unforgettable love. Still, life is about being happy, because everything in life can be summed up in just few words. Life is a beautiful journey.

Hard work is like stairs and luck is like lift. Sometimes lift may fail, but stairs will always take you to the top.

Good behaviour doesn't have any monetary value. But it has the power to purchase million hearts.

The mind is a powerful force. It can enslave us or empower us. It can plunge us into the depths of misery or take us to the heights of ecstasy. Learn to use the power wisely. - David Cuschieri

Enjoy every moment of your life..
Life is too short to waste on grudges.
Laugh when you can, apologise when you should, and let go of what you can't change.

To have peace in life, love the people who treat you right and pray for the ones who don't.

Appreciate every little beautiful moment in every day of your life. Give it a try and you'll see the world from another perspective.

God has given us eyes not to insult but to look beyond situations.
Mouth not to criticise but to speak for truth.
Hands not to punish sinners but to give a helping hand.
Ears not to be insensitive but to hear voice in pain.
Everything has its own purpose. We should use it well.

We are human. We are not perfect.
We are alive. We try things.
We make mistakes.
We stumble. We fall. We get hurt.
We rise again. We try again.
We keep learning. We keep growing.
And we are thankful for this priceless opportunity called life.

Judge nothing, you will be happy.
Forgive everything, you will be happier.
Love everything, you will be happiest.

God's blessings come as a surprise but how much you receive depends on how much your heart believes!

What's done is done. What's gone is gone.
One of life's lessons is always moving on. It's okay to look back and think of fond memories but keep moving forward.

Beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul.

Life is too short! Take time to celebrate and appreciate the amazing people in your life.
It's not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters.

Life is too short to worry about what others say or think about you. So just enjoy life, have fun, and give them something to talk about.

Good results are generated at the end of the day only if good thoughts are generated at the beginning of the day.

When people respect you as a person, they admire you.
When they respect you as a friend, they love you.
When they respect you as a leader, they follow you.

Observe and ask questions of people you respect, and you'll gain incredible lessons that you can apply to your own life.

If we wait until we're ready, we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives.

A strong woman may remain silent when people talk behind her back. But that doesn't mean she doesn't notice. It simple means she chooses not to waste her energy on foolishness. She mas more important things to do.

Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviour.
Keep your behaviour positive because your behaviour becomes your habits.
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny. - Mahatma Gandhi

Happiness keeps you sweet.
Trials keep you strong.
Sorrow keeps you human.
Failure keeps you humble.
And courage keeps you going.

When we die, the only thing remembered is what you accomplished.
Not the car you drive, the clothes you wear, the house you have, how good you look, how much you earn, what job you have, none of that.
You either die a legend, or you die a nobody.
The choice is yours.

If your eyes are positive, you will love the world.
But if your tongue is positive, the world will love you.
A woman's love is in action. She looks with her heart and feels with her eyes.
A woman is the bank where her family deposits all anger, worries and hurt.
A woman is the cement that keeps her family together and her love lasts a lifetime. - Mother Teresa
