If you trust Google more than your doctor then
maybe it's time to switch doctors.

The fact that a great many people believe
something is no quarantee of it's truth.

Believe those who are seeking the truth.
Doubt those who find it.

The truth is more important than the facts.

"Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation."

T.S. Eliot (Four Quartets, 'Burnt Norton')

Ways of thinking

Postby yat_chum » Wed May 30, 2012 11:43 am

"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it."
Mother Teresa
