Inspirational Quotes

By:Mr. Ashok Sharma

UPANISHADS Ahimsa is not causing pain to any living being at any time through the actions of one's mind, speech or body.

UPANISHADS Meditation is in truth higher than thought. The earth seems to rest in silent meditation; and the waters and the mountains and the sky and the heavens seem all to be in meditation. Whenever a man attains greatness on this earth he has his reward according to his meditation.

UPANISHADS Punarapi Jananam, Punarapi Maranam Punarapi Jananeejathare Sayanam. Man is born again and again and again. Birth is followed by death. Adi Shankara, Bhaja Govindam. Birth and death are two illusory scenes In the drama of this world: Really no one is born, no one dies, No one comes, no one goes, It is Maya's jugglery, It is play of the mind; Brahman alone exists. There is birth for the body alone, five elements combine to form the body; The Atman is birth less and deathless; Death is casting off the physical sheath. It is like deep sleep; Birth is like waking from sleep;/ Be not afraid of death, 0 Ram! Life is continuous. The flower may fade but the fragrance floats; the body may disintegrate, but the immortal fragrance of the soul Always will remain. Learn to discriminate The Real from the unreal; Think always of the Infinite That is birth less and deathless. Transcend Maya and Moha, Go beyond three Gunas, Give up attachment for the body free yourself from birth and death and merge in the Immortal Essence.
UPANISHADS That Being, of the size of a thumb, dwells deep within the heart. He is the lord of time, past and future. Having attained him, one fears no more. He, verily, is the immortal Self.

UPANISHADS The Good Earth So long as the earth preserves her forests and wildlife, man's progeny will continue to exist. This is the Hindu approach towards the conservation of ecology.

UPANISHADS The wise man ever studiously avoids Extremes in speech and act, himself; and when Others press to extremes in heated speech, He passes by, in quiet, answering not.

UPANISHADS There is something beyond our mind which abides in silence. It is the supreme mystery beyond thought. Let one's mind and one's subtle body rest upon that, and not rest upon anything else. God is sound and silence. Attain therefore contemplation, contemplation in silence on Him.

UPANISHADS Thou art the sheath, the tenement, of God. Abiding-place and treasure-house of Brahma.

UPANISHADS Where you hesitate between two courses of action, always choose the one which leaves you more alone, more in silence, more in love. Consulate these selves depend on that Self as retainers on their chieftains.

UTTARADHYAYANA SUTRA The body, they say, is a boat and the soul is the sailor. Samsara is the ocean which is crossed by the great sages.

UTTARADHYAYANA SUTRA The night passes; it is never to return. The night passes in vain for one who acts not according to the law.

UTTARADHYAYANA SUTRA Though others sleep, be thou awake. Like a wise man, trust nobody, but be always on the alert; for dangerous is the time and weak, the body. Step carefully in your walk, supposing everything to be a snare. Bestow care on your life till you win the stake. Afterwards, you should despise it, annihilating its sins.

VACASPATI MISRA Even one thousand scriptural statements cannot transform a jar into a piece of cloth.

VAUVENARGUES All men are born truthful, and die liars.

VED MEHTA India has an uncanny way of bringing out extremes in people. I suppose because we have been afflicted and enriched by centuries of migrations, moved like a pawn between this ruler and that. Our capacity for a single allegiance has been dulled. Instead we have developed an ability to be compassionate and cruel, sensitive and callous, deep and fickle.

VED VYAS Adhere there is Krishna, there is dharma, where there is dharma, there is victory Since Duryodhana, leader of the Kauravas, lid not observe dharma, ie did not have Krishna. No Krishna, no victory.

VEDANTA SOCIETY OF NEW YORK The Sanskrit word Vedanta can be split into two separate words, Veda and anta, literally meaning the anta (end) or culmination of the Vedas... Although most Vedic hymns indicate that polyatheism or the practice of worshipping multiple gods and goddesses prevailed in India during the Vedic period, the notion of One God was distinct as well in many hymns... In Vedanta is found a reconciliation of religion with science, of faith, with reason. A Vedantist is a seeker of truth who accepts and respects all religions as paths to the same goal.

The void is to be understood as the Primordial Nothingness the raw stuff out of which all is created as well as the background against which every creation can be discerned.

VERNE N ROCKCASTLE The water you are about to drink/ Deserves a second thought, I think; For Avogadro, oceans, and those you follow/ Are all involved in every swallow... The water you're about to taste/No doubt represents a bit of the waste/from prehistoric beast and bird, a notion not at all absurd... So someone slaking a future thirst/ Could easily drink what you drank first./The fountains spraying in the park/ Distribute bits from Joan of Ark/And Adam, Eve, and all their kin;/ You'd be surprised where your drink has been. The water you cannot retain/ Will some day hence return as rain, Or be beheld as the purest dew,/ Though long ago it passed through you.

VERNON HOWARD You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.

VICKI WOODYARD Sitting in surrender you will be present in presence. Gifts will arrive from the magic of the moment peace, bliss, and all the hell realms will offer themselves to you...

VIETNAMESE PROVERB Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.

VIETNAMESE PROVERB Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet.

VIJAY MALLYA Power is a very loaded term. It seems to suggest influence and how much influence I have or don't have is for others to judge. Power is also a very misunderstood term. Being called powerful tends to boost people's egos. I have no ego. I just do what it takes to make my businesses thrive. If people say Im powerful, it's not going to change my character or my behaviour in any way.

VIJAY TENDULKAR What is reality? The coexistence of the observer and the happening makes the reality. Reality becomes reality only when it is seen. There is nothing like absolute reality your perception of what is happening combined with the happening makes the picture of reality complete.

VIJAY TENDULKAR Good-bad, right-wrong, once you tag things like that, you lose the ability to see the complete truth...A murderer can also be a loving father. Don't tag things. Words are insufficient to describe the picture in totality Try not to get trapped in the dictionary meaning of words.

VIJAY TENDULKAR Theatre is possibly the medium I'm most comfortable with. There is, I feel, more respect for a writer's word there. And it is a medium that's open to change from one performance to the next. Speaking of words, I really envy musicians some- tunes. Vocalists... they can transcend the word quite easily, get away from its heaviness and achieve the unsaid element in communication...

VIJAY TENDULKAR There are times when one's life appears to be a stage. People come, people go. They come in order to go, and go with no intent of return. When they return, they return as one's past. A past that would make you feel that the present is false.

VIJNANA BHAIRAVA Let inhalation and exhalation become spontaneous. Then the coiled up Shakti uncoils and straightens upwards.

He who follows the ascent of this energy while preoccupied with this rite that consists of deep bliss, will, thanks to this Goddess and completely absorbed in her, attain Bhairava.

He may have got The means by somewhat dubious means, but now This is the loveliest of all gardens. What Do scruples know of beauty anyhow? The Humble Administrator admires a bee Poised on a lotus, walks through the bamboo wood, Strips half a dozen loquats off a tree And looks about and sees that it is good. He leans against a willow with a dish And throws a dumpling to a passing fish.

VIKRAM SETH Cold, cold friend, FrostNight comes, and I Am dispossessed. Most cold, cold, is this night, and my youth old, my spirit lost. I cannot rest. I walk alone. Frost, burn upon my every bone.

VIKRAM SETH It was a contract of trust with more than you. I know I left my home too many years ago. I place the golden thread across my wrist, that done, Struggle with my left hand to put it on. You should have done that; I too have lost half the rite. I promise you your gift in'78. Those future numerals look curious; and your brother Too will be strange when next we meet each other. How we must both have changed; only the custom stays, Educing from the past the undying days.

VIKRAM SETH When every park becomes a highway plain Cemeteries and golf-courses will remain; For every thinking man who is not red Reveres the rich; and, next to them, the dead.

VINCENT VAN GOGH Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.

VINCENT VAN GOGH Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence Perhaps it will seem to you that the sunshine is brighter and that everything has a new charm. At least, i believe this is always the result of a deep love, and it is a beautiful thing. And I believe people who think love prevents one from thinking clearly are ' wrong; for then one thinks very clearly and is more active than before. And love is something eternal the aspect may change, but not the essence. There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning. The lamp was there and it was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light too, and that is its real function. And love makes one calmer about many things, and in that way, one is more fit for one's work.

Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are his chief energies.

VISHNU SHARMA A person seeks friendship for a reason;/ with reason a person incurs enmity/ So, is it not reasonable for a person/ to seek amity rather than enmity?

VISHNU SHARMA- Giving and receiving, each others secrets sharing, dining, entertaining; these six are sure signs of affection. Unless some act of kindness is done, affection scarcely comes to anyone; the very gods grant their blessings when entreated with offerings. As long as a gift is in the offing so long will affection be forthcoming; once the calf sees the under dry he bids his mother goodbye.

VISHNU SHARMA Not weighing a full measure; always quoting false prices; swindling consistently one's regular customers, are despicable practices followed by wild tribes of the hills.

VISHNU SHARMA One person above all deserves high praise in this mortal world of ours: he who carries out to the last particle the dictates of virtuous conduct: from whom no suppliant turns away, no seeker of sanctuary leaves disappointed, his hopes shattered...

Op- pressed by waning fortunes, struck down by cruel Time, a man sees his friends even become foes, while long-standing affection turns cold.

W. CLEMENT STONE/NAPOLEON HILL Every negative event contains within it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.

W. S. LANDOR There is nothing on earth divine except humanity.

W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.

W.B.YEAST Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold/ Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.

W.C.FIELDS If at first you dont succeed, try, try again. Then quit.

W.E.B.DU BOIS There is in this world no such force as the force of a man determined to rise. The human soul cannot be permanently chained.

W.E.GOLDSTONE- This is the negation of God erected in to a system of government.

W.H. ALIEN The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle aged has all their five senses in keeping their wits.

W.J. CAMERON Money never starts an idea; it is the idea that starts the money.

W.M.LEVIS The tragedy of life is not that it ends soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

W.R. WILLIAMS Youth is the season of hope, enterprise and energy, to a nation as well as an individual.

W.W. ZIEGE Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from reaching his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

WAIKMAN Civilisation varies with the family, and the family with civilisation. Its highest and most complete realisation is found where... woman is exalted to her true and lofty place as equal with the man; where husband and wife are one in humour, influence, and affection, and where children are a common bond of care and love. This is the idea of a perfect family.

WALLACE D WATTLES The poor do not need charity; they need inspiration. Charity only sends them a loaf of bread to keep them alive in their wretchedness, or gives them an entertainment to make them forget for an hour or two. But inspiration can cause them to rise out of their misery If you want to help the poor, demonstrate to them that they can become rich. Prove it by getting rich yourself.

WALLACE STEVENS Time is a horse that runs in the heart, a horse Without a rider on a road at night. The mind sits listening and hears it pass.

WALLY AMOS Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you.

WALPOLA RAHULA Be aware and mindful of whatever you do, physically or verbally during the daily routine of work in your life, private, public or professional... That is to say, that you should live in the present moment, the present action, when and where it is relevant.

WALPOLA RAHULA Sometimes you see a man in a restaurant reading while eating... You wonder whether he eats or reads. One may say that he does both. In fact, he does neither, he enjoys neither. He is strained and disturbed in mind... and he does not live his life in the present moment, but unconsciously and foolishly tries to escape from life.

WALT DISNEY - Somehow I cant believe that there are any heights that cant be scaled by a man who knows the secret, of masking dreamed come true. The special secret it seems to me can be summarised in four Cs. They are curiosity, confidence, courage and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way. ? Implicitly and unquestionably. All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

WALT DISNEY - You have not realise it then, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

WALT DISNEY A dream is a wish your heart makes.

WALT DISNEY I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing that it was all started by a mouse.

WALT DISNEY Id rather entertain and hope that people learn something and educate people and hope theyre entertained.

WALT DISNEY Mickey Mouse is, to me, a symbol of independence. He was a means to an end... I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing that it was all started by a mouse.

WALT DISNEY The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.

WALT DISNEY The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

WALT DISNEY Too many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. They don't remember what it's like to be 12 years old. They patronise, they treat children as inferiors. Well I won't do that.

WALT DISNEY When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human; and that is the secret of his popularity.

WALT DISNEY When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do. And one thing it takes to accomplish something is courage.

WALT DISNEY Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children's approach to life. They're people who don't give a hang what the Joneses do. You see them at Disney land every time you go there. They are not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought sometimes it isn't much, either.

WALT DISNEY You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.

WALT DISNEY You can dream, create, design, and build the most wonderful idea in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality.

WALT DISNEY You may not realize it then, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

WALT DISNEY:- You have not realize it then, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

WALT DISNEY'S WISDOM All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable.

WALT WHITMAN Are not the processes of culture rapidly creating a class of supercilious infidels, who believe in nothing? Shall a man lose himself in countless masses of adjustments, and be so shaped with reference to this, that, and the other, that the simply good and healthy and brave parts of him are reduced and clipp'd away, like the bordering of a box in a garden?

WALT WHITMAN Behold, I do not give lectures or a little charity When I give I give myself.

WALT WHITMAN- Behold, I do not give Pictures or a little charity. When I give I give myself.

WALT WHITMAN Do I contradict myself?/ Very well then I contradict myself.

WALT WHITMAN Do I contradict, myself?/ Very well then I contradict self/I am large, I contain multitudes.

WALT WHITMAN In the faces of men and women, I see God.

WALT WHITMAN To breathe the air, how delicious! To speak, to walk, to seize something by the hand!... To be this incredible God I am!... 0 amazement of things, even the last particle! 0 spirituality of things! I too carol the Sun, ushered or at noon, or as now, setting; I too throb to the brain and beauty of the earth and of all the growths of the earth....

WALTER ANDERSON I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude towards the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have life itself.

WALTER ANDERSON If you're angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug which is all the more reason to do so. It's hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that's precisely what happens when we hug each other.

WALTER BAGEHOT It is good to be without vices, but it is not good to be without temptations.

WALTER BAGEHOT The greatest mistake is trying to be more agreeable than you can be.

WALTER BAUER The Arctic expresses the sum of all wisdom: Silence.

walter benjamin He who is not very strong in memory should not meddle with lying.

WALTER CHRYSLER I prefer the folly of enthusiasm to the indifference of wisdom.

WALTER GAGEBOT A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

WALTER GROPIUS If your contribution has been vital there will always be somebody to pick up where you left off, and that will be your claim to immortality.

WALTER J TURNER Everything has a cause and for everything there is an effect.

WALTER LIPPMAN When all men think alike, no one thinks very much.

WALTER LIPPMAN When all think alike, then no one is thinking.

WALTER LIPPMAN You cannot endow even the best machine with initiative; the jolliest steam-roller will not plant flowers.

WALTER PATER To burn always with this hard, gem-like flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life.

WALTER REUTHER If you are not big enough to lose, you are not big enough to win.

WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR We talk on principal, but act on motivation.

WALTER SCOTT O, what a tangled web we weave, when we first practise to deceive!

WALTER WINCHELL Gossip is the art of saying nothing in a way that leaves practically nothing unsaid.

WANG YANGMING The state of having neither good nor evil is that of principle in tranquility Good and evil appear when the vital force is perturbed. If the vital force is not perturbed, there is neither good nor evil, ' and this is called the highest good.

WANGARI MAATHAI I am working to make sure we don't only protect the environment, we also improve governance.

WANGARI MAATHAI We can work together for a better world with men and women of goodwill, those who radiate the intrinsic goodness of humankind.

WARREN BENNIS Managers are people who do things right, leaders are people who do the right things.

WARREN BUFFEN We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful.

WARREN BUFFET Let's suppose the stock market is a single individual, Mr. Market. Sometimes he feels euphoric and can see only the favourable factors affecting the business. When in that mood, he names a very high buy-sell price because he fears that you will snap up his interest

WARREN BUFFETT A public opinion poll is no substitute for thought.

WARREN BUFFETT If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.

WARREN BUFFLETT Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are beautiful.

WARREN G. HARDING My God, this is a hell of a job. I have no trouble with my enemies. I can take care of my enemies all right. But my damn friends, my goddamn friends. They're the ones that keep me walking the floor nights.

WARREN HUTCHERSON In school you were told that in case of fire you have to line up in a single file from smallest to tallest. What was the logic? Do tall people bum slower?

WARREN THOMAS Its relaxing to go out with my ex-wife because she already knows Im an idiot.

WASHINGTON LIVING Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.

WASSILY KANDINSKY Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, and the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.

WAYNE DYER - In any relationship in which two people become one, the end result is two half people.
