Life had many Lessons. But the Biggest or the mother of all lessons for me is NOT TO TAKE ANY RELATION FOR GRANTED. The Adage "We realise the Importance of People only when we loose them." has been the most IMP lesson.

Actually I am not that much experienced or fully skilled by age to have a nice comment on your statement. However, I may put few points on my experiences on my till date journey on life as follows: 1) Stick to your real interest that is beneficial for you and your family and friends. 2) Let no single minute get wasted since time constitutes your life-time only! 3) Identify your inner potentials very well with due peace of mind, study as well as strengthen them and put them into actions that must lift you and your close ones. 4) Be kind for a needy or poor person by heart that will open a channel for you to have mercy of God. 5) Understand that the entire humanity and the world is only the physical form of God that is present before you as an opportunity to extend your service. Thanks.

Each and everyday of life, we learn something new.. something useful.. I learnt how to live.. how to adjust .. how to adapt ourself to where we are... I have learnt many things.. I have learnt who is my close friend who does good to me and who is a friend for name sake.. also learnt how to escape from people who are planning to fool me n betray me.. thats what life is.. sometimes it smiles at u sometimes it cries for u..

there are so many thing i have learned till now. One is that most boys like to flirt with you. You can have no best frind in today's world. They act so when they need your help. Forget you later. If you are very good to others, people like to take advantage of you. They just exploit you.

one fundamental lesson i've learnt in life is that each day passes and a new dawn comes into our life, the hours just before dawn are the darkest. you see, happy times pass quickly and without any thoughts of tomorrow. but during our sad and difficult days, we stop and ponder over our actions, we become bewildered and take many wrong decisions which further worsens the situations. during troubled times we must keep a cool head (its not easy but possible, i've practiced it and am still doing so...)always remember that joy and sorrow are part of life and dont let trivial shortcomings affect your happiness. the fact that we are alive and surrounded by wonderful people should be a joy in itself. everybody is human and have their own pitfalls, but just learn to ignore and move on in life.

I have learned that white will always be right. When you're black (or african american), you have to work twice as hard to be considered half as good as everyone else. Even then, people will find fault in you. This is very sad, and I hope things will change someday.

We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams.And above all Christ is the answer to all our worries

Learnt that whatever your predicament there’s always an exit, it’s just that sometimes the lights for the sign aren’t on.

never trust a women blindly. the only ones whom v can trust blindly are our parents. dont indulge in love when you are immature. later it hurts.
