“Life Isn’t About Keeping Score”


“Difficulties in your life do not come to destroy you, but to help you realize your hidden potential and power.  Let difficulties know that you too are difficult.”   – Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam



“Your honesty,

Your love,

Your compassion

Should come from your inner being,

Not from teachings and scriptures.”     – Osho



“Life isn’t about keeping score.  It’s not about how many people call you and it’s not about who you’ve dated, are dating or haven’t dated at all.  It isn’t about who you’ve kissed, what sport you play, or which girl or guy likes you.  It’s not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your skin or where you live or go to school.  In fact, it’s not about grades, money, clothes, or colleges that accept you.  Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends, or if you are alone, and it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are.  Life just isn’t about that.

But life is about who you love and who you hurt.  It’s about how you feel about yourself.  It’s about trust, happiness, and compassion.  It’s about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love.  Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance, and building confidence.  It’s about what you say and what you mean.  It’s about seeing people for who they are and not what they have.  Most of all, it’s about choosing to use your life to touch someone else’s in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise.  These choices are what life’s about.”   – Nike



“I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, ‘If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.’”   – Kurt Vonnegut
