WORDS OF WISDOM:

There are seasons, in human affairs, when new wants are unfolded in  multitudes, and a new and undefined good is thirsted for. There are  periods when to dare, is the highest wisdom.
The Truth

"He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed."
prov:13-20


"As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair (beautiful)
woman which is without
discretion."
prov:11-22

"If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his
toungue. But deceiveth his own heart This man's religion is vain.
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to
visit the fatherless and widows in their affiction, and to keep
himself unspotted
from the world.
James:1,26-27

"The Lord has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the
Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and
to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8

GREAT QUOTES
"Never take direction from a crowd for your personal life. And,
never choose to quit just because somebody else disagrees with you."

"Mankind is at the crossroads. It has to make its choice between
the law of the jungle and the law of humanity."

"The first step towards overcoming procrastination is to eliminate
all excuses and reasons for not taking decisive and immediate action."

"We become like those with whom we associate."

"In the midst of unbelievable circumstances, believe."

"Non-cooperation with evil is a sacred duty."

"A compromise will always be more expensive than either of the
alternatives."

"No obstacle will ever leave you the way it found you."

"Ingratitude and criticism are going to come; they are a part
of the price paid for leaping past mediocrity."

"It is better to be alone than in the wrong company."

WORDS TO LIVE BY
"It is curious how we delude ourselves, fancying that the body can
be improved, but that it is impossible to evoke the hidden powers
of the soul. I am engaged in trying to show that if I have any of
those powers, I am as frail a mortal as any of us and that I never

A godlike man is one,
Who feels anotherís pain
Who shares anotherís sorrow,
And pride does disdain.

Who regards himself as the lowliest of the low,
Speaks not a word of evil against any one
One who keeps himself steadfast in words, body and mind,
Blessed is the mother who gives birth to such a son.

Who looks upon everyone as his equal and has renounced lust,
And who honours women like he honours his mother
Whose tongue knows not the taste of falsehood till his last breath,
Nor covets anotherís worldly goods.

He does not desire worldly things,
For he treads the path of renunciation
Ever on his lips is Ramaís holy name,
All places of pilgrimage are within him.

One who is not greedy and deceitful,
And has conquered lust and anger
Through such a man Saint Narsaiyon has a godly vision,
Generations to come, of such a man, will attain salvation

His oft-quoted passages can be cited. He said "By religion, I do not mean formal religion, or customary religion, but that religion which underlies all religions, which brings us face to face with our Maker. It is the permanent element in human nature which counts no cost too great in order to find full expression and which leaves the soul utterly restless until it has found itself. Again, he observed : "Religion which takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them, is no religion. He did not define religion in exact and definitive language. One of his attempts was to bring religion closer to common man. In that regard his was functional. But most of the times Gandhi felt that religion could not be understood without knowing its relation with God.

There is one thing which came to me in my early studies of the Bible. It seized me immediately. I read the passage: 'Make this world the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and everything will be added unto you'.

There is no religion higher than Truth and Righteousness. If we commit sins with the name of God on our lips, can we hope to win the grace of God ? Suppose one man admits the existence of God, but lives a life of falsehood and immorality, while another knows not the name of God but lives a life of truth and virtue, can there be any doubt as to which should be regarded truly religious as well as moral?

If you're so into the culture, you would know the red dot was called a "Bindi."

It's used to designate relation status (married) and for design.
