THIS IS LIFE – WORTH READING

{ a} Never discuss your problems with everyone, 20% will not care and 80% will be glad that you have them.

{b} Life is similar to a boxing game. Defeat is not declared when you fall down. It is declared when you refuse to get up.

{c} It is always the wrong people who teach the right lesson in life. That is called life experience.

{d} Everything is valuable only on two occasions: [1] Before getting it and [ 2] After getting it

{e} Two places are most valuable in the world: [1] The nicest place is to be in someone’s thoughts and [ 2 ] The safest place is to be in someone’s prayers.

{f} Fear has two meanings: [1 ] Forget everything and run and [2] Face everything and rejoice. The choice is ours.

{g} EGO is the only requirement which destroys any relationship. Be a bigger person,skip the ‘E’ and let it ‘GO’.

{h}As long as we do not forgive people who have hurt us, they occupy a Rent-Free space in our mind.

{i} I asked God: If everything is already written in destiny, then why should i pray? God smiled and said: I have also written ‘ Conditions Apply’.

{j} Empty pockets teach millions of things in life. But full pockets spoil us in million ways.

{k} Trust is like a sticker. Once it is removed, it may stick again but not as strong as it holds when you first applied.

{l} Never win people with arguments. Rather defeat them with your smile. Because people who always wish to argue with you, cannot bear your silence.

{m} Memories are always special. Sometimes, we laugh by remembering the days we cried and sometimes we cry by remembering the days we laughed. That’s life.
