Hi , Post here the quotes you like. Starting from myself, I am posting

A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg
even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.

"Whatever you are doing, put your whole mind on it. If you are shooting, your mind should be only on the target. Then you will never miss. If you are learning your lessons, think only of the lesson."

"It is our own mental attitude which makes the world what it is for us. Our thought make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light. First, believe in this world, that"

"We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act."

Nila

These are really goods.

One more from my side

Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do

Live every day like it was your last, but save as if you'll live forever


God, Monty Python And The Holy Grail
Every time I try to talk to someone it's "sorry this" and "forgive me that" and "I'm not worthy"...


Douglas Adams
The world is a thing of utter inordinate complexity and richness and strangeness that is absolutely awesome. I mean the idea that such complexity can arise not only out of such simplicity, but probably absolutely out of nothing, is the most fabulous extraordinary idea. And once you get some kind of inkling of how that might have happened, it's just wonderful. And . . . the opportunity to spend 70 or 80 years of your life in such a universe is time well spent as far as I am concerned.


Albert Einstein
When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.


Eugene Spafford
Usenet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea; massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.


Michael Sinz
Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good; and when it is bad, it is better than nothing


Last words of Francisco Villa
Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something.


Ronnie Barker
The toilets at a local police station have been stolen. Police say they have nothing to go on

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow,
Learn as if you were to live forever..."

-Mahatma Gandhi

And here is hindi version of the same...

Khwaab dekho to aise ke bas jiye chale jaana hai,
Aur jiyo to aise ke jaise kal mar jaanaa hai...

Look to this day for it is life,
the very life of life...
For yesterday is already a dream and tomorrow is only a vision.
But today, well lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a dream of hope.

Investment whiz Warren Buffet has outlined his mechanism for designing a fair and equitable society. "Let's say that it was 24 hours before you were born, and a genie appeared and said, 'What I'm going to do is let you set the rules of the society into which you will be born. You can set the economic rules and the social rules, and whatever rules you set will apply during your lifetime and your children's lifetimes.' And you'll say, 'Well, that's nice, but what's the catch?' And the genie says, 'Here's the catch. You don't know if you're going to be born rich or poor, white or black, male or female, able-bodied or infirm, intelligent or retarded.'

"Now," Buffett asked his audience, "what rules do you want to have?"
