From Freud we learned that the past exists now in the person. Now we must learn, from growth theory and self-actualization theory that the future also now exists in the person in the form of ideals, hopes, duties, tasks, plans, goals, unrealized potentials, mission, fate, destiny, etc. One for whom no future exists is reduced to the concrete, to hopelessness, to emptiness.
Scarlett O'Hara, Gone With The Wind (1939)
Oh, love is real enough, you will find it someday, but it has one archenemy and that is life.

Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.
The book you don't read cant help.
Indecision is the thief of opportunity.

Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
A teacher, a really good teacher, is never a giver of truth; he is a guide, a pointer to truth. Therefore, a good teacher, or, more appropriately, a guide, studies each student individually and helps to awaken the student to explore himself, both internally and externally, and ultimately to integrate himself with his being. All in all, a teacher acts as a catalyst, and not only must he have a tremendous understanding; he must also possess a sensitive mind with great flexibility and adaptability.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.
John Keating, Dead Poets Society (1989)
Courage is a moral quality , it is not a chance gift of nature like an aptitude for games. It is a cold choice between two alternatives, the fixed resolve not to quit , an act of renunciation which must be made not once but many times by the power of the will. Courage is will power.
Love is patient and kind, love is not jealous or boastful, it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way, it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things.
Seeing yourself as you want to be is the key to personal growth.
I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too !

That first peak is the best place to pause and look back, to see if you took the easiest route, to learn the lessons from the first climb. And it is the best place to examine the terrain ahead, to change your plans and goals, to take a deep breath and begin climbing again.
People are where they are because that's exactly where they really want to be. . . whether they'll admit that or not

Success is never wondering what if.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
After every happiness comes misery, they may be far apart or near. The more advanced the soul, the more quickly does one follow the other. What we want is neither happiness nor misery. Both make us forget our true nature, both are chains -- one iron, one gold , behind both is the Atman, who knows neither happiness nor misery. These are states, and states must ever change , but the nature of the atman is bliss, peace, unchanging. We have not to get it, we have it, only wash away the dross and see it.

Norman Vincent Peale
Marriage is a door which looks out upon a beautiful view. As that door is opened and the horizon unfolds before you, know that nothing is sweeter than the warmth of one hand within another.
Love is the true means by which the world is enjoyed. Our love to others, and others love to us.
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think wise, risking more than other's think safe, dreaming more than others think practical, and expecting more than others think possible.
But inaction itself is a kind of action, and it has consequences. Consistently and absolutely maintained, inaction would necessarily lead to swift ruin , it would be a form of suicide. A refusal to enter into the world is a refusal to meet the challenge of reality which darkly demands that I dare and find out what will happen. In my situation I bear responsibility for what occurs because I do not intervene , if I can do something and I don't do it, I am guilty of the consequences of my inaction.
