THE HEART OF WRITER

 Every writer worth his salt
Suffers from a keen sense
Of failure, because he
Knows he could have done
Things better.
It’s the bad writers who
Are always pleased
With themselves.

                ―    RuskinBond

SUBMERGE IN NATURE

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is a society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but nature more.

                  ―   Lord Byron                   

RICHEST MAN

That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest.

                ―   H.D. Thoreau

REASON BEHIND SUCCESS

The reason why few people succeed
in moving mountains is that few of them practice on molehills.

   Ruskin Bond

LIVE AND HELP LIVE

Live and let live’ is a good maxim,
but ‘live and help live’ is better.

   Ruskin Bond

HOW TO DEAL 'DIFFICULTY'

When a difficulty presents itself,
remove it at once if you can,
for the longer you look at it
the less you will like it.
-       Ruskin Bond

OFFENCE

When anyone has offended me,
I try to raise my soul so high that the offence can not reach it.

-       Descartes

DEFINITION OF SUCCESS IS HERE

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of  false friends;
to appreciate beauty, 
to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has been breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

-          Ralph Waldo Emerson
