Day Three - Quotes Challenge

"The purpose of life is undoubtedly to know oneself. We cannot do it unless we learn to identify ourselves with all that lives. The sum-total of that life is God."
- Mahatma Gandhi
Faith is not found outside, but within us. And compassion teaches us to love others, and identify ourselves. In compassion, we find God.

Day Two- Quotes challenge

"The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.” 
-Leo Buscaglia

Here’s a story I read which portrays the same message:

One evening, a little boy was walking along the shore. The bursting tide had thrown some fish along the shore. The boy started picking the fish and throwing them back in the sea.

An older man watched this. He said to the boy, “It’s not like you can save all the fish. Why waste time trying?

The boy paused, and said, “Ask that to the fish I just threw back. It mattered to him.”

Nobody can change the world single-handedly, but if everyone does their little bit, the world will be a better place.

Does anyone know the author of the story? Please, let me know if you do.

Day One- Quotes challenge

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
- Steve Jobs
I am all for change, so it wouldn't come as a surprise to any one that the above quote is one of my favourites.
Every one is different. When you try to blend in, you move away from your ideal perfection, not closer to it. Be a rebel than a follower, because rebels dare to be true to what they want. It's much better to make this world unique than strive for belonging to an average world.

So, here's to the thought, that we can change the world. Because unless you believe you can, you never will.
