Today is the World Environment Day. June 5th is celebrated as World Environment Day since 1974. The motto behind celebrating environment day is to spread awareness among common people, to understand the importance of environment and its diversity, to understand the dependence of humans on the environment, etc.
In this post I am sharing with you some quotations that inspire us to take care of our environment. These quotations are short but inspiring. In less words, these quotations help us understand the importance of nature and its biodiversity.
I hope we learn at least something from our previous mistakes and react as soon as possible. We still have time to mend our mistakes, be responsible and act wisely to take care of what we have.
Success and failure are two opposite terms that are often used to describe growth and achievements of any individual. Some say that you can’t be successful without failures. I agree with it. We actually learn from our mistakes that led to failures. We grow, learn and experience new things from our failures.
In this post, I am sharing four inspiring quotations from famous people around the world. I hope these quotes will inspire and motivate you too.
As we know that every individual is different, some people can bear the outcomes of failures while others cannot. For some people, failure is devastating and they fail to cope up. We should always understand that failures are not final and life does not end with them. When one thing fails, another thing might work out.
Success and failure are part of our journey. An individual cannot grow without failures. And no person is always successful in whatever he or she does in his/her first attempt. We fail, we learn, we try again, we change few things, and slowly but steadily we succeed.
So, always keep trying. Don’t be afraid of failures. Failures will come and go. Failures teach us how to succeed. Be positive, learn from mistakes and keep going, success will be achieved.
This was all for today. I hope all of you are doing good. Please let me know which one is your favorite quotations from the one I shared here. Your comments are always appreciated.
Thank you for stopping by and reading this post. Be kind and generous.
At the moment there are all sorts of news that are constantly filling our brains with negativity and the toughest part is, we can’t ignore them. In the months of March and April I was so much engrossed in the news of COVID-19 that sometimes it felt that everything is falling apart and this world is going to end.
Then I decided not to watch any news related to the pandemic, not to react with any memes or messages sent on any social platform, etc. This helped me a lot. I ignored any messages of COVID-19 that were sent on WhatsApp groups.
Being a microbiologist, I knew social distancing, using masks and gloves and maintaining personal hygiene is important. Eating healthy and boosting immunity is important as we don’t have the vaccine yet. So, I sticked to these religiously. Things started getting better. I felt reduction in my negative thoughts.
Positivity and negativity impacts our mind and body in different ways. Science also proves the impact of positive and negative thoughts on our body and mind.
In present scenario our mind constantly receives news related to COVID-19. Everyone talks about it. In the news, any digital platform and at homes we knowingly or unknowingly keep talking about the deadly virus. Our minds are overwhelmed with the negativity.
So we need to cleanse our body and mind and cultivate positive thoughts. We can’t certainly remove the negativity around but we can atleast stop those thoughts from reaching us.
We can do yoga, meditate, and pray. We can spread positive words and positive thoughts because as it seems now this is the way we will be living for at least an year. Thus, we need to stay positive and healthy.
Blogging is a great platform to spread positivity. Positive thoughts are always welcomed by people as they generate positivity around us. Positive thoughts generate positive energy and heals the body.
The mind is everything, what you think you become.
So, let’s spread positivity and heal ourselves. Let me know what you think about spreading positivity. How can we stay positive during this critical time?
Thank you for stopping by and reading the post. Stay tuned for more such posts. Till then stay safe, healthy and happy.
Inspirations are what we humans need from time to time. We often get inspired by people, by their work or by their thoughts. Today I chose the word Happiness for inspirational quotes and there are lots of people who talk about happiness that might inspire us.
Happiness is not a new word that I am talking about in my blog. I have already shared about happiness in one of my previous posts. You can check out in the link provided here.
I have selected 4 quotations on happiness but thee are many quotations available on the internet. You can look for other if you want. I chose only 4 so that the impact of the quote can be more. When we have too much thought, we often get burdened by the thoughts and our minds become blank. So only 4-5 at a time, I suppose is better. Here are few selected inspirational quotes on happiness.
This is so true. We ourselves are responsible for our happiness. Our actions are responsible whether we will be happy or sad. So it’s important to watch our actions as they are the deciding factors of our happiness.
A happy soul has a happy mind and a healthy body.
Here the author talks about love and its relationship with happiness. According to him, love always brings happiness, peace and blessings. If we are loved, we are in peace and we are blessed.
This quotation is so well suited in today’s world. We often worry a lot about things that are not in our hands and become sad. This quote inspires us not to worry about the things that are not in our control.
Happiness lies within us. Life can be happy with what littlest we have but we tend to ignore what we actually have and long for things that we don’t have. If we are satisfied with what we have, happiness will always be there. Our thinking makes us happy or sad. So, to be happy we need to be satisfied and stay positive.
In this hard time when we are trying to live and survive with the deadly virus, staying happy is a big deal but we need to be happy as we just learned, we need very little to be happy and everyone of us have that little.
What is your favorite happiness quote? Please share with me in the comment section. Let me know whether you liked this post or not. Your thoughts will be appreciated. Thank you for stopping by and reading this post. Be happy and stay safe.
Today, I am sharing four amazing thoughts by two great people who once lived in this world Gautam Buddha and Swami Vivekananda. The thoughts are inspiring and true in present world too.
I do believe in this. What we think, is what we really are. If we think positive we become a positive person and vice versa. Our thoughts make us and we see the world through our thoughts. So what we think is extremely important.
True, how we act in a situation is critical. If we act positively to a situation, even in a extremely negative situation, our fate might help us. This was what I could understand from this quote. Please let me know in the comment section, what you think about this quotation.
We often forget to talk to ourselves. Talking to ourselves everyday might help in reducing stress and negativity. It might also boost our confidence and help us in overcoming our shortcomings. So, from today, I am planning to talk to myself before going to bed and see what changes I see in myself.
Yes, by default humanity should be the one and only religion in this world. Helping others and needy should be our motto of life. The more we help other, the more happiness it brings.
With so much negativity around, let’s think something positive on this Sunday and spread positivity in the world. Thank you for stopping by and reading the post 🙏.
This is the most inspiring quote I ever read or came across till date. This quote inspires me to live everyday to the fullest. It also inspires me to keep learning everyday. Now that we are living in lockdown or shelter at home, what is the best thing that we can do, is to learn something new, try something new, work on something that we always wanted to, try on a new hobby, because learning keeps us engaged and happy.
And when it comes to learning there are so many things to try. We can learn drawing, painting, calligraphy, cooking, writing, photography, new courses, dancing, yoga, Zumba, and many more. Today everything is available on YouTube. We can learn being at home too.
So what are you waiting for? Utilize this time to gain something. The time is too critical, and its not going to be normal in coming months. Live, learn, and grow. This is the most positive thing and the need of time.
In my previous post I have shared the review of the book, When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. In this post I am going to share lines (quotes) from this book that I liked.
There must be a way, I thought, that the language of life as experienced – of passion, of hunger, of love – bore some relationship, however convoluted, to the language of neurons, digestive tracks, and heartbeats.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 39)
Paul had passion for both Science and Literature. He wanted to find the meaning of life and death in both Science and Literature.
Cadaver dissection epitomizes, for many, the transformation of the somber; respectful student into the callous, arrogant doctor.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 44)
A cadaver may not sound as interesting to common people as it sounds to doctors. Cadavers are interesting to doctors as they learn new things and with experience they master the human body. Cutting a dead body (a dead human body) is not a fun. Studying different organs of a dead human body is not a fun at all.
Cadaver reverse the polarity. The mannequins you pretend are real; the cadavers you pretend are fake.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 45)
Humans are organisms, subject to physical physical laws, including, alas, the one that says entropy always increases. Diseases are molecules misbehaving; the basic requirement of life is metabolism, and death its cessation.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 70)
Because the brain mediates our experience of the world, any neurological problem forces a patient and family, ideally with a doctor as a guide, to answer this question: What makes life meaningful enough to go on living?
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 71)
Neurosurgery seemed to present the most challenging and direct confrontation with meaning, identity, and death.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 73)
The call to protect life – and not merely life but another’s identity; it is perhaps not too much to say another’s soul – was obvious in its sacredness.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 98)
Good intentions were not enough, not when so much depended on my skills, when the difference between tragedy and triumph was defined by one or two millimeters.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 105)
Death comes for all of us. For us, for our patients; it is our fate as living, breathing, metabolizing organisms. Most lives are lived with passivity toward death – it’s something that happens to you and those around you.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 114)
Death is real and each one of us has to face it. Death becomes difficult when it comes to us. Its hard to believe but we have to face it one day.
You cant ever reach perfection, but you can believe in an asymptote toward which you are ceaselessly striving.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 115)
Before my cancer was diagnosed, I knew that someday I would die, but I didn’t know when. After the diagnosis, I knew that someday I would die, but I didn’t know when. But now I knew it acutely. The problem wasn’t really a scientific one. The fact of death is unsettling. Yet there is no other way to live.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 131-132)
Yes, all cancer patients are unlucky, but there’s cancer, and then there’s CANCER, and you have to be really unlucky to have the letter.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 133)
Cancer is so scary. It scares us to the core. Cancer is a deadly disease, terminal disease, as mentioned in this book. The feelings of the author are clear as a patient and as a doctor.
Torn between being a doctor and being a patient, delving into medical science and turning back to literature for answers, I struggled, while facing my own death, to rebuild my old life – or perhaps find a new one.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 139)
After so many years of living with death, I’d come to understand that the easiest death wasn’t necessarily the best.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 143)
Death may be a one-time event, but living with terminal illness is a process.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 161)
Human knowledge is never contained in one person. It grows from the relationships we create between each other and the world, and still it is never complete.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 172)
Part of the cruelty of cancer, though, is not only that it limits your time; it also limits your energy, vastly reducing the amount you can squeeze into a day.
Paul Kalanithi (When Breath Becomes Air, Pg: 196)
While reading the book, I got lost in the pain and sufferings of the author and missed many good sentences. I recommend this book to everyone who like reading non-fiction books.
I was just surfing on internet and found some inspirational quotations that took away my heart. I don’t know why but these quotes really inspired me. It gives the punch of being what we are and why we are. Inspirational quotes keeps us motivated when we are feeling low, when we are tired and when we want to give up.
This quote only talks about you. It talks about you being brave, strong, smart and beautiful. Even if you are feeling low you will start feeling good. It tries to bring the stronger and smarter part of you.
This quote is so simple and sleek. It says just two words “Be Positive”, that’s it. Being positive is a good thing. It removes negative people and negative thoughts from our life.
This is damn correct. You are special and one. Nobody can replace you. You are what you are. Take care of yourself and never compare yourself to anyone.
This quote if you see as the first thing in the morning, it will boost your mood and will make your day. It will help you to stay positive throughout the day.
Your read it and you smile. One of my posts was dedicated solely to smile and its advantages. So, this is one of them and I like it.
These are five quotes that I found interesting and inspirational. I hope these quotes also prove inspirational to you.
