The ross within us

A mail forward I received some days back.

A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully and before it blossomed, he examined it.

He saw the bud that would soon blossom, but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns? Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and just before it was ready to bloom... it died.

So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The God-like qualities planted in us at birth, grow amid the thorns of our faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects.

We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies. We never realize our potential. Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns of another, and find the rose within them.

This is one of the characteristic of love... to look at a person, know their true faults and accepting that person into your life... all the while recognizing the nobility in their soul. Help others to realize they can overcome their faults. If we show them the "rose" within themselves, they will conquer their thorns. Only then will they blossom many times over.

Smart Thoughts of life

Don't compare yourself with any one in this world.If you compare, you are insulting yourself.

Don't complain about others; change yourself if you want peace.

It is easier to protect your feet with slippers than to cover the earth with carpet.

No one can go back and change a bad beginning, but anyone can start now and create a successful ending.

Easy is to judge the mistakes of others. Difficult is to recognize our own mistakes.

If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it. If a problem cannot be solved what is the use of worrying?

'Changing the Face' can change nothing. But 'Facing the Change' can change everything.

Be bold when you loose and be calm when you win.

No one will manufacture a lock without a key. Trust that God created solutions for all problems we meet.

Every successful person has a painful story. Every painful story has a successful ending. Accept the pain and get ready for success.

Heated gold becomes ornament. Beaten copper becomes wires. Depleted stone becomes statue. So the more pain you get in life you become more valuable.

Mistakes are painful when they happen. But year's later collection of mistakes is called experience, which leads to success.

Life laughs at you when you are unhappy...
Life smiles at you when you are happy...
Life salutes you when you make others happy...
If you miss an opportunity don't fill your eyes with tears.
Tears may hide another better opportunity in front of you.

If you keep doing what you have always done, you will keep getting what you have always gotten.

For things to change, you have to change. For things to get better, you have to get better.
