Bhagvad Gita Quotes

Image
What did you produce, which you think got destroyed?
You did not bring anything, whatever you have, you received from here. Whatever you have given, you have given only here.
Whatever you took, you took from God. Whatever you gave, you gave it to Him. You came empty handed,  You will leave empty handed.

Bhagvad Gita Quotes

You need not have any regrets for the past. You need not worry for the future.
The present is happening..... What did you lose that you cry about?
What did you bring with you, which you think you have lost?

A masterpiece by Robert Frost

Image
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same, 

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.
