Find your truth

Human Bondage
Man is bound by his own action except when it is performed for the sake of sacrifice. Therefore, Arjuna, do efficiently perform your duty, free from attachment, for the sake of sacrifice alone.
- Bhagvad Gita 3.4
“Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Thee...”
- St. Augustine
“A successful man is he who receives a great deal from his fellow men, usually incomparably more than corresponds to his service to them. The value of a man, however, should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive. The striving, the effort to achieve success and to excel is not a bad thing. However, to make that the ultimate goal of life is nothing short of being foolish for earthly gains and achievements are short-lived. It is the search for the divine truth that ultimately brings real fulfilment."
- Albert Einstein

Season of Hope

US Open - First day
"We got here Thursday. I really don't know what day it is any more. I thought today was Friday."

Venus Williams struggles with the time difference after flying in from China.

“We were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do, that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them and even if you don’t agree with them.”

Michelle Obama - Denver Democratic Convention (Wife of Barack Obama)

“For me, this is a season of hope.”
“This is the cause of my life,” New hope that we will break the old gridlock and guarantee that every American — North, South, East and West, young, old — will have decent health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege."
“Barack Obama will close the book on the old politics of race, gender and group against group and straight against gay,”

Edward M. Kennedy - Denver Democratic Convention

Idea of Happiness

From Net

Happiness is the taste of the hot and sweet jalebis that you eat in the shade of the nukkad's sweets shop, watching the rain splashing outside.
Happiness is the smile on the face of the little beggar boy when you give away the last penny of your pocket money that you had saved to buy your favorite ice cream, to him.
Happiness is the beauty of the moonlight when you sit in the calmness of the rooftop, listening to your favorite music.
Happiness is what you see in the laughing eyes of a toddler, completely ignorant of the harshness of life ahead.
Happiness is what u feel when you put your head in your Mom's laps and she strokes your hair so fondly.
When it comes to happiness, I can never forget that day when I got late to my class and got scoldings that even today send a shiver up my spine. It was a rainy day and i had stopped on my way to help an old vegetable seller to stand her stall. Even after the scoldings, when i saw my face in the rain-laden window glass of my class, I was smiling!
