THE BEAUTY OF LIFE

Alone i can ‘Say’ but together we can ‘talk’.

Alone i can ‘Enjoy’ but together we can ‘Celebrate’.

Alone i can ‘Smile’ but together we can ‘Laugh’.

That’s the Beauty of Human Relations. We are nothing without each other.

The razor blade is sharp but can’t cut a tree as well as the axe can’t cut the hair.

Everyone is important according to his or her unique purpose…

Never look down on anyone unless you are admiring their shoes. 

Have a freaky, fantastic and flourishing friday.

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.

The American Southwest has been decimated by drought. Nevada and Arizona skirmish over dwindling shares of the Colorado River, while California watches, deciding if it should just take the whole river all for itself. Into the fray steps Las Vegas water knife Angel Velasquez. Detective, assassin, and spy, Angel “cuts” water for the Southern Nevada Water Authority and its boss, Catherine Case, ensuring that her lush, luxurious arcology developments can bloom in the desert and that anyone who challenges her is left in the gutted-suburban dust.

When rumors of a game-changing water source surface in Phoenix, Angel is sent to investigate. With a wallet full of identities and a tricked-out Tesla, Angel arrows south, hunting for answers that seem to evaporate as the heat index soars and the landscape becomes more and more oppressive. There, Angel encounters Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist, who knows far more about Phoenix’s water secrets than she admits, and Maria Villarosa, a young Texas migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky.As bodies begin to pile up and bullets start flying, the three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt, and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.With Phoenix teetering on the verge of collapse and time running out for Angel, Lucy, and Maria,their only hope for survival rests in one another’s hands.But when water is more valuable than gold alliances shift like sand, and the only truth in the desert is that someone will have to bleed if anyone hopes to drink.
