Swami Vivekananda
সত্যের জন্য সব কিছু ত্যাগ করা যায়; কোন কিছুর জন্যই সত্যকে ত্যাগ করা যায় না।
Everything can be sacrificed for truth, but truth cannot be sacrificed for anything.



Albert Einstein
(German born American Physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity. Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. 1879-1955)
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them.
A person starts to live when he can live outside himself.
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

And in the end, itís not the years in your life that count. Itís the life in your years.

The path of least resistance is the path of the loser.



Mark Twain
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
It isn't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just isn't so.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.



Sri Ramakrishna (1836-1886)
যত মত তত পথ।
As Many Views, As Many Ways.




Ma Saroda (মা সারদা)
সহ্যের সমান গুণ নেই, সন্তোষের সমান ধন নেই।
দোষ ধরতে পারে সবাই। কিন্তু গুণের প্রশাংসা করতে পারে কজন।
যদি শান্তি চাও অন্যের দোষ ধোরোনা। বরং নিজের দোষ দেখ।



Dr Seuss

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us.
He who is too busy doing good finds no time to be good.
The world speaks to me in colours, my soul answers in music.
You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.
Faith is a bird that feels dawn breaking and sings while it is still dark.
Every child comes with the message that God is not yet tired of the man.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
He who wants to do good knocks at the gate: he who loves finds the door open.
Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.



 



Winston Churchill
Never, never, never give up!
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.
 A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
