True treasures experienced and voiced years ago. They hold good even today and are worth cherishing and remembering every once in a while. Sometimes when I read them, I feel they are so apt to the situation I am in at that point. Kind of gives me reassurance that people have been there before and come out victorious, it is just a matter of time and that particular moment will surely pass, learn from that moment and never let that affect your future.
Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.
-Arthur Golden (Memoirs of a Geisha)
Stress is an ignorant state, it believes that everything is an emergency.
-Natalie Goldberg, Wild Mind.
When my mind feels blank and empty, I just pick up
Wisdom or Reader's Digestmy fav books and whichever edition it is or however old it is, it never fails to relieve me of my tension. So much of knowledge just packed in a few pages imparting wisdom and knowledge...
Assumptions are the termites of the relationships.
Half of the harm that is done in the world is due to people who want to feel important.
- T.S. Eliot
How true it is to say that books are our best friends, they never leave us nor bother us. They show us the right path without actually listening to us or being judgmental. Choosing the book to read is vital and once you pick what is right for you, you are stuck with it for life and it is always a give-give and take-take relation from then on..
Thank you sooooo much God for these small mercies and the greatest treasures.
It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of our ignorance.
