Risk, Courage, Ability, Motivation, Purpose

  • Most people would rather be certain they’re miserable, than risk being happy.
  • The cynic knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing.
  • Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
  • What is a friend? I will tell you….. It is someone with whom you dare to be yourself.
  • One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency.
  • However brilliant an action may be, it should not be accounted great when it is not the result of great purpose.

-I liked these quotations from the Sunday Times of India, April 27th 2008.
