Memorable quotes

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain

  •  "Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. 

    Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. 

    But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. (Siddhartha Gautama - The Buddha), 563-483 B.C.
  • Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. 

    Never break four things in your life – trust, promise, relation & heart because when they break they don’t make noise but pains a lot………………

  • Religion is based . . . mainly on fear . . . fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand. . . . My own view on religion is that of Lucretius. I regard it as a disease born of fear and as a source of untold misery to the human race." 
    [Bertrand Russell]
