-- Liew Mun Leong

"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to make more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is in reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want."

-- Margaret Young

"To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out."

-- Roger Ebert

Fifty years ago, human could never go to the moon.  What is impossible now might be possible in the future as long as there are still people who are willing to say i m possible."


"Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleeve of care The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course, Chief nourisher in life's feast.

Nothing Impossible With a Willing Mind
