Responsibility & Thoughts by Swami Vivekananda

We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.

- Swami Vivekananda

Man and Life by Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered 

"Man. Because he scarifies his health in order to make money.
Then he scarifies money to recuperate his health.
And he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die,
and then dies having never really lived."

Life is like roller coaster

Life is like a roller coaster.  It has its ups and downs.
But it's your choice to scream or enjoy the ride.
