Thought For The Day

Dear Children,

-The aim of an argument or discussion should not be victory, but progress.

-True eloquence consists in saying all that should be said, and that only.

-Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy.

-To get your ideas across use small words, big ideas, and short sentences.

-One of the best ways to persuade others is with your ears - by listening to them.

-Do not be afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.

-Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.

-Goodwill is the mightiest practical force in the universe.

-Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.

-I find that it is not the circumstances in which we are placed, but the spirit in which we face them, that constitutes our comfort.

-Think positively and masterfully with confidence and faith, and life becomes more secure, more fraught with action, richer in achievement and experience.

With Love, Amma-Naana
