Give your life a chance to make you happy !
Everyone looks at your broad chest and feels wow
But the cuts behind your back are invisible to all
Everyone cheers you for your sixes
No one appreciates when you are duck out
Everyone looks at the shape of your muscles
But no one looks at the number of hours you have put behind
The burns on your skin
The patches of healed wounds
The cuts of various accidents
The roughness of life, rubbing against your skin, you are bound to grow tougher !

I melt in your love to become the carpet under your feet !

However hard I want to fight with you,
inside of me drop all the guards and weapons,
which leaves me with nothing
to fight with and fight for !
We all struggle in our own created world !
When you are hit by life
You either become successful or
you become a philosopher
or a poet or a teacher
We all want good life but only a few are ready to do what it takes
We all learn to leave with a broken leg, which isn’t actually broken !
If someone doesn’t behave like a grown up, you have no responsibility, don’t take on yourself.
Once you realize that there are preferences of people and they can be different from your own – you will be a complete human.
First you ask
Then it becomes your habit to ask
Then you keep on asking
Then you become dependent
Either we adjust to live with what we have
we work towards getting what we want
We are so lost in making life that we forget to live life.
When we work hard, all the unnecessary drag about life is lost.

WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR BY RABINDRANATH TAGORE
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
Excerpt from Gitanjali
~ Rabindranath Tagore
Wisdom Quotes by Epictetus
Epictetus (c. 55 – 135 AD) was a Greek Stoic philosopher. He was born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia(Turkey). His teachings were written down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses and Enchiridion. Epictetus taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Epictetus, all external events are beyond our control; we should accept calmly and dispassionately whatever happens. However, individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline.
