This is my first post (besides introduction) so I'll make it a good one!

“This pain is not to make you sad, remember. Thats where people go on missing.... This pain is just to make you more alert--because people become alert only when the arrow goes deep into their heart and wounds them. Otherwise they dont become alert. When life is easy, comfortable, convenient, who cares? Who bothers to become alert? When a friend dies, there is a possibility. When your woman leaves you alone--those dark nights, you are lonely. You have loved that woman so much and you have staked all, and then suddenly one day she is gone. Crying in your loneliness, those are the occasions when, if you use them, you can become aware. The arrow is hurting: it can be used. The pain is not to make you miserable, the pain is to make you more aware! And when you are aware, misery disappears.” - Osho

I love the poem "Opportunity" by Edward R. Sill...too long to type it here, unless somebody would like me to do it.

Teddy Roosevelt's "Man in the Arena" speech: "It is not the critic who counts; ….The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, …; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again…; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
