Be thankful if you have a job which is little harder than you like.
A razor cannot be sharpened on a a piece of velvet.
Choose rather to want less, than to have more.
Even when opportunity knocks a man still has to get up off his seat and open the door.
Everywhere man blames nature and fate,
yet his fate is mostly but the echo of his character and performance, his mistakes and weaknesses.
If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you grow old.
If you wish to reach the highest begin at the lowest.
In the game of life it’s a good idea to have a few early losses,
which relieves you of the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeated season.
In this world, there is always a danger for those are afraid of it.
Opportunities are never lost. The other fellows take those you miss.
Every opportunity, an obligation:
every possession, a duty.
(excerpts from little book on achievements by Gyan C. Jain)
