A kaliedoscope of words

Photo coutesy: wikimedia

Over the years, I have come across people of varying personality profiles with different professional and hierarchical backgrounds. Needless to say, I had something to learn from each one of them. Something they might have mentioned in a casual conversation had a sustained effect on me. Here's such a list in reverse chronological order. I will add more as I remember them.

'Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do' - Forwarded by Lalit

'Some people never find happiness because they keep looking in the wrong places. And when all the while it might be lying just next to them, they spend their whole life looking elsewhere and complaining that they did not find it' - Ma

'Modesty is a virtue, but it's foolish to lie.'- Shashi ( Quoting Bobby Fischer on being asked who's the greatest chess player of his times)

'I saw the gaps but missed the points which could have formed the line'- Saikat Bose

'(Frankly) My dear, I don't give a damn! ' Rhett Butler. Gone with the wind

'Be yourself' - Candid Diary

'You will do it, I can almost see it written on your face' - Mr. Sinha

'Happiness is an attitude, it doesn't depend on circumstances' - Nishant

'The whole world is your abode' - Dad

'The world is a lot more than that appears from an open window' - Sunny

By assimilating wisdoms of different people passing through your life and by uncovering some wisdoms on your own you are really becoming ‘yourself’.
My applause.
