Julia Roberts's Eat, Pray, Love may be the answer to many people who are caught in a rut. Forgotten how to live life on your own terms? Well then, eat, pray, and love.
Eat, because it nourishes your body and mind. Don't shy away from food. If you love food, eat without guilt. Our body can be resilient to the food we eat. But we should also respect the body's needs.
Pray, for the redemption of our souls.
Spirituality gives you solace and peace of mind. Prayers should not read like a wish-list for Santa Claus. Instead, they should energize the soul and loosen the grip of material thoughts.
Love, as you have never loved before. Do not feel ashamed to express love and revel in the feeling of being in love. Love everything and everybody around you. See how it revitalizes your soul.
There is a lot we can do with our life. But we have only one life to do it.
We are all familiar with the virtues of good living. We have shining examples of lives well lived -- Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, and many more. It is not easy to live as they did. But if we manage to improve our lives in the smallest possible way, we can make a difference to the world.
Take the example of Myanmar's freedom fighter, Aung Sung Suu Kyi. A veteran opposition leader, she has spent more than a third of her life in prison. Yet she continues to fight for democracy, and against the oppressive laws of the dictatorial government.
This Nobel Peace Prize winner may look like a fragile flower, but she is quite the lioness with sublime strength.
Let us take a page from the life of Aung Sung Suu Kyi and seek inspiration to change things around us. With inspiration from these famous quotes about life, you can take on the world.
Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us.
Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force.
Katherine Anne Porter
Our being is subject to all the chances of life. There are so many things we are capable of, that we could be or do. The possibilities are so great that we never, any of us, are more than one-fourth fulfilled.
Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.
Martin Luther King
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
John F. Kennedy
Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.
Our talents are the gift that God gives to us... What we make of our talents is our gift back to God.
Henry David Thoreau
Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.
