A cheerful, intelligent face is the end of culture: Ralph Waldo Emerson

· A cheerful temper will make beauty attractive, knowledge delightful.
· Cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind.
· Cheerfulness is the friend and helper of all good graces.
· Cheerfulness sharpens the edge and removes the rust from the mind.

Our thoughts create our reality — where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go...

Educating emotions

Expressive arts can bring young people much more than simply aesthetic pleasure. But inculcating a cultural hobby is not an easy task. It requires patience and perseverance; aesthetic pleasure is a learned and acquired skill.

క్రమ పరిణామాలు - డా. సి. నారాయణరెడ్డి

ఆ విత్తనం చిన్నదే కదా అని ఉపేక్షించొద్దు
పరిస్థితుల సముచిత దోహదంతో
ఆ విత్తనమే వృక్షమై నిలుస్తుంది

ఇది చినుకే కదా అని అనుకోవద్దు
ప్రకృతి రచించనున్న వర్షాకావ్యానికి
ఈ చినుకే తొలి పలుకు

ఇప్పుడు ఒక మహాత్ముని గుండెలా
నిండుగా ప్రవహించే జీవనది
ఒకప్పుడు ఏ కొండకోనల్లోనో
సన్నటి నీటిపాయగా తప్పటడుగులు వేసిందే

ఏ చరిత్రయినా చిటికెలో తయారు కాలేదు
అది ఎన్నెన్ని సంఘర్షణలను తట్టుకుని
ఎందరి త్యాగాలను ఊతకర్రలుగా పట్టుకుని
తరతరాలుగా కాలం విధించే అగ్రి పరీక్షలకు నిలిచి
మనదాకా తరలి వచ్చిందో

విడివిగా ఉన్నప్పుడు ఇటుకల విలువ తెలియదు
అవే సంఘటితంగా రూపొందితే మిద్దెలై మేడలై
మనల్ని విభ్రాంతుల్ని చేస్తాయి
ఎంతటి కొమ్ములు తిరిగిన విద్వన్మణియైనా
పసిప్రాయంలో అఆల స్తన్యం ఆరగించిన వాడే
ఉలిదెబ్బు పడందే ఏ రాయీ రమణీయ శిల్పాకృతి పొందదు

ప్రాథమిక దశను బట్టి
దేని అస్తిత్వానికీ అంచనా కట్టలేం
కాలమనే బృహత్ గ్రంథం పుటలు విప్పి
అన్ని క్రమపరిణామాల ఆద్యంతాలు

Thought For The Day

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change: Charles Darwin

Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations: Peter F. Drucker

A life lived with integrity — even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune — is a shining star in whose light others may follow in the years to come: Denis Waitley

To be successful in life you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone. Without any of these “bones” you are nothing; with these “bones” you are something.

If I Can.. - A Poem By Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

You have to ...

You have to Feel before you can Touch
You have to Fail before you Succeed
You have to Learn before you Know
You have to Be Quiet before you can Talk
You have to Look before you can Find
You have to take a Step before you can Walk
You have to Give before you can Get

How to De-Stress With Tea...

With the first cup of tea, you are a stranger. With the second...a friend. Invite a friend. Tea is a sociable drink that is perfect for sharing with a friend. Spending time talking while you drink a cup or two of tea will allow you both to unwind and relax after a stressful day.

Researchers in England have found that people who drink black tea de-stress more quickly. Tea is the most popular drink in the world and has been served everywhere from China to America. Whether you drink it hot or cold, with lemon or milk, the simple act of sitting down with a cup of tea can help you fight stress and relax after a busy day.

Mom's Favorite Rangoli - Collected From Web & News Papers - Many Thanks to all the Artists

I didn’t force myself into self-improvement – I started living consciously: Arina

I didn’t develop self-discipline – I found my passion!
I didn’t lose weight by sticking to a diet – I changed my relationship with food.
I didn’t learn to manage my time – I got my priorities straight.
I didn’t make everyone like me – I cut on judging, gossiping and complaining instead.
I didn’t solve the world hunger problem – I simply made my life purpose helping one person at a time.

Most so-called Failures are only temporary defeats.·

* Every adversity, every failure, and every heartache carries with it the Seed of an equivalent or a greater Benefit.·
* Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting.
*Until you have learned to be tolerant with those who do not always agree with you; until you have cultivated the habit of saying some kind word of those whom you do not admire; until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others, you will be neither successful nor happy.

Life is your canvas... You Paint it yourself

You are the hope!
You are a part of all that surrounds you.
Celebrate your connection to life as you step into the future.

Your abilities can take you to the top,
but it is your character that will keep you there.

Unlock your potential.
Every moment has a hidden gift.

Discover. Dream.
You will create your tomorrows by what you dream today.

Imagine the unimaginable.
This is your time. This is your life.

Life is your canvas and no one can paint it but you.
Learn from yesterday, live for today,
You are the hope for tomorrow!

Power of Thoughts

Do not under estimate the Power Of Thoughts. Just as water has the power to shift and mold earths landscape, your thoughts have the power to shift and mold the landscape
of your life
