    Self-determination has to mean that the leader is your individual gut, and heart, and mind or we're talking about power, again, and its rather well-known impurities. Who is really going to care whether you live or die and who is going to know the most intimate motivation for your laughter and your tears is the only person to be trusted to speak for you and to decide what you will or will not do. - June Jordan

    Happiness

    All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

    "No one wants to spend their life treading water"
    Donald Trump

    It's very difficult to remain static, we are generally either improving or going backwards. If you don't have a desire to continually improve on what you are doing, maybe it's time to look for something that inspires you more.

    Wise words indeed, Fergal. Yours are better than Donald's. :D

    I think we're on the same wavelength. When I'm feeling inspired and excited about a project, I'm at my happiest. Charles Kingsley was right. He said "We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about." When the enthusiasm's no longer there, it dulls your senses.

    Education today means that learning is not a once in a life-time venture, but instead is a process of continuous learning and re-learning as rapid change transcends each aspect of our daily lives.

    “You are the embodiment of the information you choose to accept and act upon. To change your circumstances you need to change your thinking and subsequent actions.”


    it means alot to me. I have been inspired alot by this quote. Life needs changes at continuous basis. If changes are not applied, rate of growth in all departments of life ceases. hence, one should keep on changing according to situation and act according to current situations.

    It's better to accept the fact that you are not appreciated
    than to insist yourself to someone who never really see your worth...
