Words of wisdom, can you share yours?

If you could sum up your life and leave a message to humanity what would it be? You can quote a phase or make you own. You can also try to explain the meaning of it so that others can appreciate the beauty of your phase. For me, as I write on my profile I would say "This, too, Shall pass!" Here is a little explanation about it, read on: "Words to fit every situation, good or bad. Words to ease the heart and mind in every circumstance, appropriate to every situation, as useful in prosperity as in adversity, words by which a person could be guided for his or her life, in every circumstance, no matter what happens. These magic words will give comfort to the afflicted, courage to the frightened, and hope to the depressed. As we climb the ladder of success and encounter life's tougher moments, we can find solace in these words of wisdom: This, too, shall pass."

Everyone should have a down period in our life, so for your future, I think, it depends on your atitude to your depressed life...so the best sentence I can share to you, my friends, is: Never be unduly elated by victory or depressed by failure, and another sentence should be: Those who can draw lessons from their failure are destined to success...thanks

"This too shall pass" is one of my favorites!!!!! But I find "Everything happens for a reason" to be the most inspirational and wisest quotes of them all (for me of course)... That simple little saying has gotten me through some extremely tough times. No matter good or bad, everything truly does happen for a reason! Every thing that takes place in our lives (events, meeting new people, losing people, etc) happens to bring you closer to the next chapter of your life... It all takes place for a reason! Sometimes we are too blinded by our own happiness or misery though to see the bigger picture..

Yeah, nice one too. But sometimes we often get lost by just finding the reason for a particular incident that happens to us.

Care more for one another, there is always a tomorrow, look ahead, be a leader not a follower. heads up life is love. without hope we have no future. look toward a better day for yesterday is gone. smile brings on other smiles. donot worry be happy. happiness is within you. love one another we all would know each other. think first then react.

words of wisdom,good topic,the life we live as 3 tough teachers i was gonna say beauty teachers cause too me they r but to many they would say tough,so they come to the point where they say life is tough or rough,but its no bed of roses,now the 3 teachers r 1) PAIN (2)SUFFERING (3) SACRIFICES,these teachers have taught me how to accept life and never be looking for no comfortable way out,and i am so glad i accepted these teachers casue if i never did they would not leave me alone until i did,and now if anyone should ask me which lifestyle would i prefer a luxurious one are a tought one i would choose the tough one why? because it turned me into a real man not a boy nor a baby to always be crying whenever i come under tough times but to stand and fight until u are victorious,a luxurious life for me would make me run away from pressure quickly,and i would not be brave but a coward,i could never lead nor captain my ship i would jump over board before the passengers,a rough life turns u into a figther,so i would choose that so to me accepting my teachers i now see life everday as an experience always ready to learn more always ready for the fight,to prove how much i need to learn more or see how much i have advanced on the path of knowledge,and this is some of my words of wisdom,enjoy

Hi Fulltank! Words of wisdom can give readers wisdom. When I read the novel of Jane Eyre, I was inspired by these words: Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs. It tells us to be merciful and tolerant to others. If we can do that, then there will be much less trouble and we shall always be happy in our lives. Happy my lotter:)

As far as I have seen in my 21 years of life span I can not conclude in one line/para/page/book. Even then I am trying: Life is to live......................(conditionless) You cant control it; you need to ride it. You are not the only one in suffering. Believe in yourself just that's all it is. Word of caution here, if you try this you'l end up with success only if you are a great believer of yourself, otherwise it can ruin yoiur entire life.

Hi Fulltank. I love sayings and proverbs that hold wisdom, and some of my favorites are: Carpe diem, which means seize the day! The present moment is the only one in which we can truly live. Let this be the criteria by which you measure all things: Is this an act of love? Life exists to be embraced, not merely endured. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Those have meanings which I feel don't require an explanation :)) Karen
