Just an observation: it is impossible to be both grateful and depressed. Those with a grateful mind-set tend to see the message in the mess. And even though life may knock them down, the grateful find reasons, if even small ones, to get up. - Steve Maraboli

It isn’t the incompetent who destroy an organization. The incompetent never get in a position to destroy it. It is those who achieved something and want to rest upon their achievements who are forever clogging things up. - F. M. Young

It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one. - George Harrison

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. - C. S. Lewis

It is the power of creative men to perceive the relations between thoughts, or things, or forms of expression that may seem utterly different, and to be able to combine them into some new forms – the power to connect the seemingly unconnected. - William Plomer

The Mystery of Life

Dear Friends,

My latest eBook The Mystery of Life is now available on Amazon. It is free for 3 days. Please feel free to download a copy. However, I would appreciate your taking some time to write a review, if you think the book worthy of it. Cheers!

Click Here for the book.

A preview of the book

            Feeling dazed and overwhelmed with life? Don’t know how to handle the difficulties that you face? Wondering about the meaning of life and your purpose for being here? Baffled by what life is all about? Rest assured that you are not the only one who feels this way.
            ‘The Mystery of Life’ is a compilation of quotes on life. You will definitely perceive life differently after going through this book. In the book are thoughts, opinions and views of sages, philosophers, mystics, religious leaders and people who have given life a good deal of thought.
            Life isn’t fair, life isn’t perfect – but, it is still a beautiful life. Arm yourself with an open mind, a dose of common sense, a sense of humour, and your journey through life will be a pleasant one.


            If you think that life is one big mystery, you are not alone. And the only way to solve this mystery is to live through it. Pay attention to your surroundings, keep an open mind, have no expectations, and be ready to deal with what life throws at you.
            Life is never smooth nor straightforward. There will always be ups and downs, tears and laughter. You do the best you can with what you have. Nobody will ask more of you than that. If you do your best, you will have no regrets, even if things do not quite end up the way you want them to.
            Assembled in this book are thoughts and opinions of sages, philosophers, spiritual leaders, mystics, and people who had given life a great deal of thought. Most of these quotes teach us life-lessons not taught in classrooms. They may answer some of the questions you have on life as well as change your understanding and attitude towards life.
            It helps if you are able to understand their meaning literally and metaphorically, and are also able to infer and draw parallels to situations and circumstances in life.
            So, let us see what other people have to say about life. Their thoughts and opinions might give us a head start, and help to pave the way to an enriching and fulfilling life for us.

Life - Quotes

In civilized life, where the happiness, and indeed almost the existence, of man depends so much upon the opinion of his fellow-men, he is constantly acting a studied part.

Life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh with you, some laugh at you, and some show up really late.

They are the only ones who matter. - Unknown

Food for Thought

As the sun rules the day and the moon governs the night, so too, we are connected by: the air that we breathe, light that we see and the darkness that follows. Life is too short to waste it on disagreements. Surely, we can all agree to disagree. So let us find a common ground, form a union and spread joy, happiness and freedom around the world for the benefit of you, me and the future generations to come. - Raymond Beresford Hamilton

To those who see with loving eyes, life is beautiful. To those who speak with tender voices, life is peaceful. To those who help with gentle hands, life is full. And to those who care with compassionate hearts, life is good beyond all measure. - Unknown

The most beautiful experience we can have is the most mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. - Albert Einstein

The world is so unpredictable. Things happen suddenly, unexpectedly. We want to feel we are in control of our own existence. In some ways we are, in some ways we’re not. We are ruled by the forces of chance and coincidence. - Paul Auster
