Good Advices!!!

HAPPINESS

To be happy with a man,
you must understand him a lot
and love him a little.

To be happy with a woman,
you must love her a lot
and not try to understand her at all.

Shmuley's Words of Wisdom!



Shmuley's Words of Wisdom....(I still do not know who is Shmuley?)

Hanging around with Shmuley can be quite inspiring. So, we decided to grab a pen and paper and absorb everything that we could. We are now offering up nugget-sized bits of Shmuley's advice here.


You can't be a good parent without being a good spouse.

There are two kinds of parental love: the love you give your kids, and the love you give your spouse. Kids with loving spouses grow up believing in romantic love.

It's your kid's job to resist. It's your job to impose your will
Good discipline is just another form of love.

Ten percent of life is what happens; the other 90 percent is what you do about it.

Many of us parent out of fear - fear of alienating our kids, fear of making the wrong choice - but fear never leads to the right destination.

You cannot fix your children without also fixing yourself.

The greatest gift a man & a woman can give to their children is the gift of loving each other.

Shalom in the home, domestic tranquility, is the ultimate blessing. The man who has a woman who believes in him is impregnable and invincible. Nothing in life can hurt him because he has peace at this center.

Your marriage is not a facet of your life. It is your life. It is not a detail of your happiness, but its source and greatest blessing. Swallow your pride. Go back to the person to whom you once committed your life and exert the energy to make the marriage work again. By doing so you will have the satisfaction of knowing, not only that you never stopped climbing – that you never quit – but rather that you never climbed alone.

There is enough uncontrollable pain in life without us unnecessarily adding self-inflicted wounds.

The hero is not the man who conquers the world, but who conquers his own passions.

We dare never parent out of fear. Fear is a hysterical reaction to an imagined threat, while caution is a calculated response to a real danger.

We must raise our children to fear none but God alone.
(for me our Conscience here)

A parent's bedroom is not a family sitting room or family dormitory. Children should never sleep in their parents' bedroom. If you need to hire a security guard to make your bedroom into Fort Knox, that is still better than allowing your role as parent to conflict with your role as lover to your spouse.

The rule of relationships is this: We all want to be wanted, need to be needed, desire to be desired. Demonstrating a dependency on the object of your love is the golden rule of relationships.

Man is a force of nature, like a hurricane, whose turbulence is on the extremities but has utter calm at its center. We are powerful when we have shalom, tranquility, in the home, when the place to which we retreat is tranquil. Then, none of the external noise pierces our soul. For many families today, however, they have tumultuous winds in the home, forcing them to flee to mind-numbing escapes on the extremities, outside the home.

It's not true that a couple's sex life need end with the advent of children. On the contrary, what is lovemaking other than a man and woman at play, flirtatious and precocious. And the natural playfulness that children inject into the lives of their parents can help them to draw closer.

The greatest gift that a man can give his children is to love their mother. Conversely, the greatest gift that a mother can give her children is to love their father.

By being happily married we gift to our children the knowledge that love works, that the world is comprised of pieces of a puzzle that ultimately fit.

The man who cheats on his wife thinks of himself as an adventurer, when really he is a wanderer.

We dare not make money into a commodity by which to purchase self-esteem.

The foremost sin in a marriage is to put someone (even your child) before each other.

The real purpose of counseling a family is not to point out right and wrong, but to
inspire
them to choose the right and reject the wrong.

The Garden of Eden was not a place in space, but a place in time. It represents our childhood years, when everything is magical and perfect. Eviction from Eden represents growing up, the natural tendency to be bitten by the hardships and disappointments of life, to calcify and coarsen. The restoration to Eden takes place when we have children, who reintroduce all the lost Eden-like qualities of childhood into our lives.

Parents today are guilty of believing that they can have healthy children without having a healthy family environment.

Most of us promise ourselves that we will never make the same mistakes as our parents, yet we grow up and almost by osmosis, we start becoming them. We end up transmitting to our children the same imperfections that our parents transmitted to us. It's a never-ending cycle. And there comes a time in the generational life of a family that one generation has to say, "Enough, I will be healed so that my children will heal." Let that generation be us.

You cannot have healthy children without having a healthy family environment.

There are no bad children. Only bad parents. When our kids act up, it's time to look in the mirror.

Parents need their children far more than children need their parents.

You are not a hero to the world unless you are first and foremost a hero to your children.

Have you really been successful if the people who mean the most to you, think the least of you?

WISE SAYINGS!


WISE SAYINGS


The darkest hour has but sixty minutes.
Never hate anyone quite as much as you think you should.
Habits come in three classifications:
Good, bad, and those you are just now trying out.

One of the delicate jobs in life is teaching the kids
how to avoid hurting other people's feelings without being liars.
Whether your influence on people is good or bad
depends on whether they are better or worse than you.

We've never heard of a mob rushing across town to do a kindness.

Money can't buy happiness unless you spend it on somebody else.
A man may lead a woman to the altar,
but it frequently happens that his leadership stops there.

A good listener is not only popular everywhere,
but after a while he learns something.

For every minute you are angry you lose 60 seconds of happiness.

To be the picture of good health be in a good frame of mind.

The man who has not tasted the bitter does not know what the sweet is.

Wealth is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it.

You never get a second chance to make a good impression.

It is part of the cure to wish to be cured.

SIXTEEN THINGS THAT TOOK ME OVER 50 YEARS TO LEARN:




SIXTEEN THINGS THAT TOOK ME OVER 50 YEARS TO LEARN:

1. Never, under any circumstances, 
take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

2. If you had to identify, in one word, 
the reason why the human race has not achieved, 
and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

4. People who want to share their religious views with you 
almost never want you to share yours with them.

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

7. Never lick a steak knife.

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear 
and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even 
remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you 
can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other 
people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, 
regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status 
or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, 
we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person. 
(This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)
Note: For no. 13, one could add to waiter/waitress - labourer, 
worker, servant, maid, gardener, mechanic, sales person, cashier, beggar, driver, helper, etc.

14. Your friends love you anyway.

15. Never be afraid to try something new. 
Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. 
A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

16. Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes, 
and it's up to the women to stomp the crap out of them 
until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

FINAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 

There is more money being spent on breast implants and 
Viagra than on Alzheimer's research. 
This means that by 2030, there should be a large elderly 
population with perky boobs and huge erections 
and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

A Blog Posted by Singapore 's Youngest Millionaire

A Blog Posted by Singapore 's Youngest Millionaire

By Adam Khoo In Money |

Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Suzhou (China). I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books.

Recently, someone came up to me on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked.
He asked, 'How come a millionaire like you is travelling economy?' My reply was, 'That's why I am a millionaire.' He still looked pretty confused. This again confirms that greatest lie ever told about wealth (which I wrote about in my latest book 'Secrets of Self Made Millionaires'). Many people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires have to wear Gucci, Hugo Boss, Rolex, and sit on first class in air travel. This is why so many people never become rich because the moment they earn more money, they think that it is only natural that they spend more, putting them back to square one.

The truth is that most self-made millionaires are frugal and only spend on what is necessary and of value. That is why they are able to accumulate and multiply their wealth so much faster. Over the last 7 years, I have saved about 80% of my income while today I save only about 60% (because I have my wife, mother in law, 2 maids, 2 kids, etc. to support). Still, it is way above most people who save 10% of their income (if they are lucky).
I refuse to buy a first class ticket or to buy a $300 shirt because I think that it is a complete waste of money. However, I happily pay $1,300 to send my 2-year old daughter to Julia Gabriel Speech and Drama without thinking twice.

When I joined the YEO (Young Entrepreneur's Organization) a few years back (YEO is an exclusive club open to those who are under 40 and make over $1m a year in their own business) I discovered that those who were self-made thought like me. Many of them with net worths well over $5m, travelled economy class and some even drove Toyota's and Nissans (not Audis, Mercs, BMWs).

I noticed that it was only those who never had to work hard to build their own wealth (there were also a few ministers' and tycoons' sons in the club) who spent like there was no tomorrow. Somehow, when you did not have to build everything from scratch, you do not really value money. This is precisely the reason why a family's wealth (no matter how much) rarely lasts past the third generation. Thank God my rich dad (oh no! I sound like Kiyosaki) foresaw this terrible possibility and refused to give me a cent to start my business.

Then some people ask me, 'What is the point in making so much money if you don't enjoy it?' The thing is that I don't really find happiness in buying branded clothes, jewellery or sitting first class. Even if buying something makes me happy it is only for a while, it does not last.
Material happiness never lasts, it just give you a quick fix. After a while you feel lousy again and have to buy the next thing which you think will make you happy. I always think that if you need material things to make you happy, then you live a pretty sad and unfulfilled life.

Instead, what make ME happy is when I see my children laughing and playing and learning so fast. What makes me happy is when I see by companies and trainers reaching more and more people every year in so many more countries. What makes me really happy is when I read all the emails about how my books and seminars have touched and inspired someone's life. What makes me really happy is reading all your wonderful posts about how this BLOG is inspiring you. This happiness makes me feel really good for a long time, much much more than what a Rolex would do for me.

I think the point I want to put across is that happiness must come from doing your life's work (be in teaching, building homes, designing, trading, winning tournaments etc.) and the money that comes is only a by-product.
If you hate what you are doing and rely on the money you earn to make you happy by buying stuff, then I think that you are living a life of meaningless.

ROSE...a story from my Grandniece WenYi

ROSE...a story recieve from my Grandniece WenYi

The first day of school our professor introduced himself
and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know.
I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder.
I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me
with a smile that lit up her entire being.

She said, 'Hi handsome.. My name is Rose. I'm eighty-seven years old.
Can I give you a hug?'
I laughed and enthusiastically responded, 'Of course you may!'
and she gave me a giant squeeze.

'Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?' I asked..
She jokingly replied, 'I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married,
and have a couple of kids....'
'No seriously,' I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her
to be taking on this challenge at her age.
'I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!'
she told me.

After class we walked to the student union building and shared a
chocolate milkshake. We became instant friends. Every day for the
next three months we would leave class together and talk non stop.
I was always mesmerized listening to this 'time machine' as she shared
her wisdom and experience with me.

Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily
made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she revelled
in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students.
She was living it up.... At the end of the semester we invited Rose
to speak at our football banquet.
I'll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up
to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech,
she dropped her note cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little
embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said,
'I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whisky is
killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order
so let me just tell you what I know.'

As we laughed she cleared her throat and began,
'We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we
stop playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy,
and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day.
You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die.
We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even
know it! There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up.
If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do
one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old.
If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do
anything I will turn eighty-eight.
Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability.
The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change.
Have no regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did,
but rather for things we did not do.
The only people who fear death are those with regrets.'

She concluded her speech by courageously singing 'The Rose.'
She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives.

At the year's end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those
years ago. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep.
Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute
to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late
to be all you can possibly be.

When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of advice
to your friends and family, they'll really enjoy it!
These words have been passed along in loving memory of ROSE.

REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY.
GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL.


We make a Living by what we get. We make a Life by what we give.
God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Hari Malaysia!

Today 16th September 2008, Hari Malaysia,
Let us agree that…
There are thirteen states, and only one Malaysia
There are many parties, but we are one nation
While we may differ, we are not enemies
We can be critical, but not offensive
We shall seek and embrace truth, and reject deceit
We shall not take sides based on partisan views
Because wrong is wrong and right is right,
no matter who does it
Let us all oppose corruption, racism and bigotry
Unite for one future,
free from sleaze, discrimination and poverty;
Multiplicity is God’s creation; let us replace race with Unity
Let us see Unity in diversity, and learn to love all, because
When we dislike the other, we dislike part of God’s design,
We are One
We may greet each other in different ways,
what we are all trying to say is:
I am pleased to meet you, my brother, my sister Malaysians
For there are
Many lamps, One Light
Many hearts, One Spirit
Many prayers, One God
Many Colors, One Race.
Have a meaningful Hari Malaysia
Let us add value,
Anas Zubedy

I believe!


I believe .....
That just because two people argue,
it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
it doesn't mean they do love each other.

I believe .....
That we don't have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.

I believe .....
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe .....
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I believe .....
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I believe .....
That it's taking me a long time to
become the person I want to be.

I believe .....
That you should always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.


I believe .....
That you can keep going long
after you think you can't.


I believe .....
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.


I believe .....
That either you control your attitude
or it controls you.


I believe .....
That heroes are the people who do
what has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.


I believe .....
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.


I believe .....
That my best friend and I can do anything
or nothing and have the best time.


I believe .....
That sometimes the people you expect
to kick you when you're down,
will be the ones to help you get back up.


I Believe .....
That sometimes when I'm angry
I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.


I believe .....
That maturity has more to do with
what types of experiences you've had
and what you've learned from them
and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.


I believe .....
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.


I Believe .....
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.


I believe .....
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.


I Believe .....
That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret.
It could change your life Forever.


I believe ......
Two people can look at the exact same thing
and see something totally different.


I Believe .....
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours
by people who don't even know you.


I believe .....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to you -
you will find the strength to help.


I believe .....
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.


I believe .....
That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.


I Believe .....
That you should send this to all of the people that you believe in.
I just did.


The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the best of everything they have.

Ironies of life!

Ironies of life



Men :

1. All men are extremely busy.
2. Although they are so busy, they still have time for women.
3. Although they have time for women, they don't really care for them.
4. Although they don't really care for them, they always have one around.
5. Although they always have one around them, they always try their luck with others.



Women :

1. The most important thing for a woman is financial security.
2. Although this is so important, they still go out and buy expensive clothes and stuff.
3. Although they always buy expensive clothes, they never have something to wear.
4. Although they never have something to wear, they always dress beautifully.
5. Although they always dress beautifully, their clothes are always just 'an old rag'.
6. Although their clothes are always 'just an old rag', they still expect you to compliment them.
7. Although they expect you to compliment them, when you do, they don't believe you.





Wisdom:



WHEN I WAS MARRIED 25 YEARS, I TOOK A LOOK AT MY WIFE ONE DAY AND SAID,
'HONEY, 25 YEARS AGO WE HAD A CHEAP APARTMENT, A CHEAP CAR, SLEPT ON A SOFA BED AND WATCHED A 10-INCH BLACK AND WHITE TV, BUT I GOT TO SLEEP EVERY NIGHT WITH A HOT 25-YEAR-OLD BLONDE.'


NOW WE HAVE A $2M HOME, A $245,000.00 CAR, NICE BIG BED AND 50' PLASMA SCREEN TV, BUT I'M SLEEPING WITH A 50-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT YOU ARE NOT HOLDING UP YOUR SIDE OF THINGS.'


MY WIFE IS A VERY REASONABLE WOMAN.

SHE TOLD ME TO GO OUT & FIND A HOT 25-YEAR-OLD BLONDE,
AND SHE WOULD MAKE SURE THAT I WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE LIVING IN A CHEAP APARTMENT,
DRIVING A CHEAP CAR, SLEEPING ON A SOFA BED AND WATCHING A 10-INCH BLACK AND WHITE TV.

A POEM

SLOW DANCE


Have you ever watched kids

On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain

Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.


Do you run through each day

On the fly?

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done

Do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores

Running through your head?

You'd better slow down

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.


Ever told your child,

We'll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,

Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time

To call and say,"Hi"

You'd better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.


When you run so fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift....

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING

WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING
For all young parents, ..... and grand parents..... uncles and aunties...

A message every adult should read because children
are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say.



When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my
first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately
wanted to paint another one.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a
stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind
to animals.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my
favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little
things can be the special things in life.


When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a
prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always
talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a
meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
learned that we all have to help take care of each
other.


When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of
your time and money to help people who had nothing,
and I learned that those who have something should
give to those who don't.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care
of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
to take care of what we are given.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you
handled your responsibilities, even when you didn' t
feel good, and I learned that I would have to be
responsible when I grow up.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come
from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things
hurt, but it's all right to cry.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you
cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.


When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of
life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
productive person when I grow up.


When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and
wanted to say,'Thanks for all the things I saw when
you thought I wasn't looking.'


TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE I KNOW WHO DO SO MUCH FOR
OTHERS, BUT THINK THAT NO ONE EVER SEES.


LITTLE EYES SEE A LOT.


Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend)
influences the life of a child.

Superb Bill Gates Comments


Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this!
Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school.
He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality
and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

必看 .....TENSION!

One Moment listen please

The Moment you are in Tension
You will lose your Attention
Then you are in total Confusion
And you will feel Irritation
Then you will spoil personal Relation
Ultimately, you won't get Co–Operation
Then you will make things Complication
Then your blood pressure may raise Caution
And you may have to take Medication
Instead, understand the Situation
And try to think about the Solution
Many problems will be solved by Discussion
This will work out better in your Profession
Don't think it's my free Suggestion
It's only for your Prevention
If you understand my Intention
You will never come again to Tension

The Gift of Saying So Much with so Few Words!

If you will take the time to read these,
I promise you'll come away with an enlightened perspective.
The subjects covered affect us all on a daily basis:


They're written by Andy Rooney, a man who has the gift
of saying so much with so few words.


I've learned .. That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.

I've learned .. That when you're in love, it shows.

I've learned .. That just one person saying to me, 'You've made my day!' makes my day.

I've learned .. That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the
most peaceful feelings in the world.

I've learned .. That being kind is more important than being right.

I've learned .. That you should never say no to a gift from a child.

I've learned .. That I can always pray for someone when I don't have
the strength to help him in some other way.

I've learned .. That no matter how serious your life requires you to be,
everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.

I've learned .. That sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.

I've learned .. That simple walks with my father around the block on
summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult.

I've learned .. That life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

I've learned .. That we should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for.

I've learned .. That money doesn't buy class.

I've learned .. That it's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.

I've learned .. That under everyone's hard shell is someone who
wants to be appreciated and loved.

I've learned .. That to ignore the facts does not change the facts.

I've learned .. That when you plan to get even with someone,
you are only letting that person continue to hurt you.

I've learned .. That love, not time, heals all wounds.

I've learned .. That the easiest way for me to grow as a person is
to surround myself with people smarter than I am.

I've learned .. That everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.

I've learned .. That no one is perfect until you fall in love with them.

I've learned ... That life is tough, but I'm tougher.

I've learned .. That opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.

I've learned .. That when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere.

I've learned .. That I wish I could have told my Mom that I love her
one more time before she passed away.

I've learned .. That one should keep his words both soft and tender,
because tomorrow he may have to eat them.

I've learned .. That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

I've learned .. That when your newly born grandchild holds your
little finger in his little fist, that you're hooked for life.

I've learned .. That everyone wants to live on top of the mountain,
but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.

I've learned .. That the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.


It's Friendship Week.
Show your friends how much you care about them.

Farewell Letter of Gabriel Garcia Marquez


FAREWELL LETTER FROM A GENIUS

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, famous writer from Colombia, and Nobel Peace Prize winner for literature, has retired from public life for reasons of health.
He has a form of cancer, which is terminal. He has sent afarewell letter to his friends.

A GENIUS SAYS GOODBYE FOR GOOD

It is recommended reading because it is moving to see how one of the best and most brilliant of writers expresses himself & with sorrow.
(Even as I'm SURE this would have sounded TWICE as good in Spanish, let us enjoy the English version nonetheless.)

He says:

If God, for a second, forgot what I have become and granted me a little bit more of life, I would use it to the best of my ability.

I wouldn't, possibly, say everything that is in my mind, but I would be more thoughtful of all I say. I would give merit to things not for what they are worth, but for what they mean to express.

I would sleep little, I would dream more, because I know that for every minute that we close our eyes, we waste 60 seconds of light.

I would walk while others stop; I would awake while others sleep.

If God would give me a little bit more of life, I would dress in a simple manner, I would place myself in front of the sun, leaving not only mybody, but my soul naked at its mercy.

To all men, I would say how mistaken they are when they think that they stop falling in love when they grow old, without knowing that they grow old when they stop falling in love.

I would give wings to children, but I would leave it to them to learn how to fly by themselves.

To old people I would say that death doesn't arrive when they grow old, but with forgetfulness.

I have learned so much with you all, I have learned that everybody wants to live on top of the mountain, without knowing that true happiness is obtained in the journey taken & the form used to reach the top of the hill.

I have learned that when a newborn baby holds, with its little hand, his father's finger, it has trapped him for the rest of his life.

I have learned that a man has the right and obligation to look down at another man, only when that man needs help to get up from the ground.

Say always what you feel, not what you think. If I knew that today is the last time that that I am going to see you asleep, I would hug you with all my strength and I would pray to the Lord to let me be the guardian angel of your soul.

If I knew that these are the last moments to see you, I would say 'I love you'.

There is always tomorrow, and life gives us another opportunity to do things right, but in case I am wrong, and today is all that is left to me, I would love to tell you how much I love you & that I will never forget you.

Tomorrow is never guaranteed to anyone, young or old.

Today could be the last time to see your loved ones, which is why you mustn't wait; do it today, in case tomorrow never arrives.

I am sure you will be sorry you wasted the opportunity today to give a smile, a hug, a kiss, and that you were too busy to grant them their last wish.

Keep your loved ones near you; tell them in their ears and to their faces how much you need them and love them. Love them and treat them well; take your time to tell them 'I am sorry';
'forgive me', 'please' and 'thank you', and all those loving words you know.

Nobody will know you for your secret thought. Ask the Lord for wisdom and strength to express them.

Show your friends and love ones how important they are to you.

Send this letter to those you love. If you don't do it today...tomorrow will be like yesterday, and if you never do it, it doesn't matter either, the moment to do it is now.

For you,
With much love,

Your Friend,
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
