Top quotes on life

We all need to be motivated in life. I feel that when we go to college, school, there is a curriculum at place. Strangely later in life you would realize that we all need a curriculum for life and it has to be designed by us. Much of what happens to us is a function of our decisions. We all are in this journey together and at the same time alone. We require a daily bout of motivation to carry us through our day. I keep small snippets of motivational quotes gathered from reading.


I hope you will like these, do share your favourite one on life.

    ~Milton Berle
  1. If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever.
