“Enthusiasm is one of the
most powerful engines of success.
When you do a thing,
do it with all your might.
Put your whole soul into it.
Stamp it with your own personality.
Be active, be energetic and faithful,
and you will accomplish your object.
Nothing great was ever achieve
without enthusiasm.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson


“Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
 Ralph Waldo Emerson

for you never know how soon it will be too late.”

Thought of the Day

“Every man alone is sincere.
At the entrance of a second person,
hypocrisy begins.
We parry and fend the approach
of our fellow-man by compliments,
by gossip, by amusements, by affairs.
We cover up our thought from him
under a hundred folds.”

Quote of the Day

“The purpose of life is not to be happy.
It is to be useful, to be honorable,
to be compassionate,
to have it make some difference
that you have lived and lived well.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. I have always loved reading thoughts as in those two or three sentences, it teaches us such a deep feeling, if jotted down would consist of an entire book. Furthermore Bernard Shaw’s quotes are the greatest of all, in my opinion.
