A seed of inspiration sown nearly 6 months ago, became a fully blossomed talking tree; with over 3200+ inspirational quotes contributed by diverse individuals from across the globe. It has been my earnest endeavor for nearly 2 months to pick nearly 500 contributions, both quotes and perspectives, to bring to you this bouquet of which I take immense pleasure and pride. The reason for it, in my point of view, is not difficult to seek.

When faced with difficult questions or challenging situations in life like “Where to go?”, “What to do”? “Which path to take?”, “Whether to end it all?” and such; I must admit that I did not have the desired success in silent reflections. I always paused to introspect, yes, but ultimately took recourse to a wise-saying, a quote or an anecdote to pick-me up and help me stay on course.

The questions eventually begin to fade and the path one chooses and the journey one embarks upon takes over and becomes life.

There is a tremendous sense of relief and a surge of elation that an appropriate quote brought to one’s mental state while facing despair or doom, which cannot be expressed in words; no amount of gratitude will pay back in kind, expect heading resolutely in the direction, the wise men who gave those quotes have pointed out.

I strongly believe, this compilation is going to impact lives positively across the globe, as they did when they touched our lives. I sincerely urge, each and every one of you, who have had the opportunity to go through this, to pass it on to your family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances. There can be no better gift that we can bestow on them than that brings in a smile, instills confidence, gives impetus to their efforts or helps them turn a new leaf for better.

For each and every contribution in your hand is nothing short of an elixir. And no road-map works better.

      Here’s mine. Give us Americans a good perspective on our government vs. the various forms of government all over the world.

      “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” (from a House of Commons speech on Nov. 11, 1947)

      1. GPJ says:

        Unfortunately ‘Democracy’ is theoretical.

        What America has now is far from that ideal. Capitalism, not just the fallacy of Democracy, might well be the problem.
