I have been writting this since 1995, some on pages of my old diary then notepad and few on old blogs. Lets put some here, these are not in order or something..just scraps!!

Know that life is truely over, when you've more memories than dreams

For some reason, the Al Pacino monologue from "Scent of a woman" just came to mind.

"Now I have come to the crossroads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew, but I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard. Now here's Charlie. He's come to the crossroads. He has chosen a path. It's the right path. It's a path made of principle that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey. You hold this boy's future in your hands committee. It's a valuable future. Believe me. Don't destroy it. Protect it. Embrace it. It's gonna make ya proud one day, I promise you"

Wish we could help you make that decision but it is all yours alone to make.

I'm not thinking of what you are thinking,but I might note that an act of courage is often mistaken for a blunder until its true sense becomes clear only years later.

I might stir you up to believe in my qualifications only if I had a stentorian voice of a great preacher. But I don't.

I might excite you to feel uplifted and inspired only if I had something uplifting and inspiring to say. But I don't.

You earned knowledge; and you also gained maturity -- some of you.

But you earned other gifts -- hopefully:

patience, persistence, perspective,

confidence, compassion, and command of the English language,

the fine art of learning how to learn, and

resistance to disappointments and failures,

not to speak of friendship and romance

and a whole lot more.

But there is the idling mind of the third kind, and it is the best.

It is the mind that whiles away in creative mental doodling.

Oh, yes, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and Jill a weary girl.

Communication expands knowledge. It is a transport vehicle for distributing information, and information is a resource, the goods for transport. Information is a fodder for knowledge, not knowledge itself.

As Heraclitus astutely observed 25 centuries ago, " A Lot of Learning does not teach Understanding."

War is the father of all and king of all, who manifested some as gods and some as men, who made some slaves and some freemen.

The road up and down is one and the same.

The world is nothing but a great desire to live and a great dissatisfaction with living.

Guard jealously
Your private time
And private space.

Cherish and nurture
Silence in your mind.

Remember always:
Idle but not idly.

****Socially Weak, Economically needy, and politically powerless.

"The root of all morality is self control."

Any path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you… Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it, as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone, one question… Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t it is of no use.
The Teachings of Don Juan
