    I love this quote the best -

    “The questions you ask determine the quality of your life.”

    That is so true in life. What we experience, what we perceive is really determined by what we focus on. Focus on the negatives, and that is what you will experience. Likewise when you focus on the positives, you will experience positive things. Choose the questions that you ask yourself wisely because that will largely determine what you focus on.

    A friend is a kind of help. Rain the life on the road, friends can block wind chill for you, for you share sorrow, remove the pain and difficulties, friends will always friendship.
    He is you climb up the escalator when you were injured, is a medicine, is you when a bowl of water of hunger, is when you across the river is the boat; He is money can’t buy orders not to come of, only the truly can track, and the most valuable for the real thing.
    A friend is a kind of acacia, a friend is each other, each other about miss, mutual concerns, each other on. Missing is like a flow of endless river, like a gentle frivolous, like a cloud of a fragrant flowers, like a piece of lingering sound made by the wind.
    Sometimes he also is a kind of light memories, light tea, light resonance……
    Have the friendship, little a lot of worry, gloomy leaves, won’t fall on the earth, and float on the surface, to distant drift, friendship is the river is, is a kind of pure and fresh air, behind out in front……

    I like this one by Teddy Roosevelt
    It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the ma who is actually in the Arena, whose face is marred b dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again an again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming but he who does actually strive to do the deed, who knows the great devotion; who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails while daring greatly, know that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls, who know neither victory nor defeat.

    we must focus to see the light.

    Believe you can and you’re halfway
    there.

     

    Theodore
    Roosevelt

     

    Change your thoughts and you change
    your world.

     
    These are very great quotes which should be absorbed for a peaceful life,but i feel when we are in actual difficulties,its very hard to be focused and to see the light of solution,as the mental pain is more intensive than the physical …pain can be.
