Personalities

There are times of happiness and after comes times of sadness. The most unsatisfactory thing about happy time is that it passes away very soon, we get so busy being happy that we forget to take a breath and realize that ‘yes, this is it, it’s here, I am happy’ .We also forget to live it to the fullest but when the blue times arrives, it knocks us down, makes us live it properly and there we get weak.

But life has got support ,we often overlook. People live and die but some of them leave good things for us. We are required to take a look at them in our sad times and there it is, hope and inspiration.

Some of these personalities who should be re-read throughout our life to remain motivated and positive towards life are-

Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda was a Hindu monk and one of the most celebrated spiritual leaders of India. He was more than just a spiritual mind; he was a prolific thinker, great orator and passionate patriot. He carried on the free-thinking philosophy of his guru, Ramakrishna Paramhansa forward into a new paradigm. He worked tirelessly towards betterment of the society, in servitude of the poor and needy, dedicating his all for his country.

Some of his famous quotes are-

  • We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

  • The brain and muscles must develop simultaneously. Iron nerves with an intelligent brain — and the whole world is at your feet.

Dalai Lama

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is one of the most beloved and recognized leaders of our time. The 14th Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism and the Tibetan people.  He was recognised as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama when he was two years old. The 84-year-old self-proclaimed “simple monk” has dedicated his life to the service of humanity, promoting a universal “religion of human kindness.” 

Some of his famous quotes are-

  • People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.

  • Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back, and reasons to stay.

  • Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.

A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was a prominent Scientist and 11th president of India. He was also known as the Missile Man of India. He was honoured with several prestigious awards including India’s highest civilian honour Bharat Ratna in 1997. He was one of the most loved Presidents of India.

He quotes many inspiring things as such-

  • Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work.

  • You cannot change your future, but you can change your habits, and surely your habits will change your future.

Gautama Buddha

Siddhartha Gautama, known as the Buddha, was the Indian spiritual teacher who founded Buddhism. No written records about the birthday of Gautama Buddha were found from his lifetime or from the one or two centuries thereafter. However, most people accept that this one of the great spiritual gurus lived, taught, and founded a monastic order during the Mahajanapada era. 

He gave many greatest life lessons like-

  • Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

  • The past is already gone, the future is not yet here. There’s only one moment for you to live.

  • Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

Chanakya

Each and every one of us wants to become successful. We aim to fight and win in businesses, careers, relationships and, ultimately, in life. However, most of us fail to reach our full potential because of various speed breakers. Chanakya and the Art of War draws upon lessons from the great teacher, philosopher and strategist Chanakya’s masterpiece, Arthashastra, which can help us overcome those speed breakers to become innovative and influential and realize our true potential.

His sayings-

  • Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.

  • A man is born alone and dies alone; and he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone; and he goes alone to hell or the Supreme abode.

  • A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.

  • The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
