Life gives us brief moments with another...but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a life time... In quiet moments when you think about it, you recognize what is critically important in life and what isn't. Be wise and don't let good things crowd out those that are essential. Sometimes at the best moments a single word or a look is enough.
Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
There are moments in life, when the heart is so full of emotion That if by chance it be shaken, or into its depths like a pebble Drops some careless word, it overflows, and its secret, Spilt on the ground like water, can never be gathered together.
Kiss your life. Accept it, just as it is. Today. Now. So that those moments of happiness you're waiting for don't pass you by. You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
If I get a chance to live few moments of my life again then I would love to experience few things in my life again.

In your life, you meet people. Some you never think about again. Some, you wonder what happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again. But you do. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same again. You must never miss the opportunity to tell these people how much they mean to you.
There is no feeling more comforting and consoling than knowing you are right next to the one you love. But some emotions don't make a lot of noise. It's hard to hear pride. Caring is real faint - like a heartbeat. And pure love - why, some days it's so quiet, you don't even know it's there.
Relationships-of all kinds-are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.
As you think so shall you be! Since you cannot physically experience another person, you can only experience them in your mind. Conclusion: All of the other people in your life are simply thoughts in your mind. Not physical beings to you, but thoughts. Your relationships are all in how you think about the other people of your life. Your experience of all those people is only in your mind. Your feelings about your lovers come from your thoughts. For example, they may in fact behave in ways that you find offensive. However, your relationship to them when they behave offensively is not determined by their behavior, it is determined only by how you choose to relate to that behavior. Their actions are theirs, you cannot own them, you cannot be them, you can only process them in your mind. Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations. Don't over-analyze your relationships. Stop playing games. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness.
Whenever you're in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude. The closer and more confidential our relationship with someone, the less we are entitled to ask about what we are not voluntarily told.

For it is Life, the very Life of Life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and Realities of your Existence.
The Bliss of Growth,
The Glory of Action,
The Splendor of Beauty;
For Yesterday is but a Dream,
And To-morrow is only a Vision;
But To-day well lived makes
Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.
Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!

Next day, I was thinking that I wish every time when we make mistakes in our lives, God could show us those red lines or blinking red lights to let us know that we have made an error somewhere and we should correct it before it gets to late like Spell checker does every time. Because the error of one moment becomes the sorrow of a whole life sometimes. But then I thought, ignorance and error are necessary to life, like bread and water. Sometimes we may learn more from a man's errors, than from his virtues.
I didn't even know that there is a difference between error and mistake which now I know thanx to Wikipedia.
One reference differentiates between "error" and "mistake" as follows:
An ‘error' is a deviation from accuracy or correctness. A ‘mistake' is an error caused by a fault: the fault being misjudgment, carelessness, or forgetfulness. Now, say that I run a stop sign because I was in a hurry, and wasn't concentrating, and the police stop me, that is a mistake. If, however, I try to park in an area with conflicting signs, and I get a ticket because I was incorrect on my interpretation of what the signs meant, that would be an error. The first time it would be an error. The second time it would be a mistake since I should have known better.
I think mistakes are a fact of life. It is the response to the error that counts and I don't think so it would be fun to live totally perfect lives. Error is discipline through which we advance.
I've learnt so much from my mistakes
I think I'll make another
Never make the same mistake twice,
There are so many new ones to make;
Try different one each day....
And hey, I haven't made any mistakes while writing this post.
I didn't even use Spell checker...
why you laughing???
I did use spell checker..
but no mistakes were found out.

One must know oneself. If this does not serve to discover truth, it at least serves as a rule of life, and there is nothing better. It's unbelievable how much you don't know about the game you've been playing all your life.
These days I wanna spend sometime with my self at such place,
Any life, no matter how long and complex it may be, is made up of a single moment, the moment in which a man finds out, once and for all, who he is. So I may just find out, who I am.
