Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes Of The Day

Hello All,

Here is another iteration of the "Jewels of Truth & Favorite Quotes of the Day" segment. May you enjoy it as I have enjoyed writhing them up.

739) A man's (woman's) purpose is two fold, first to serve himself as best he can without committing offense to himself or others. Second, to serve others with a good heart as a means of personal soulful enrichment. This is the purposeful life that liberates all who beckon it fruitfully. --- Ivan / Atrayo.

740) Winning in life should not be dictated by the standards of a society, especially by others. Winning is a personal choice set by hopefully modest gains dictated by worthy goals that are achievable by an individual. And, winning must not come at an expense too great to pay. Lest one reaps hardship and regret along the way. By pursuing objectives that are punitive rather than complimentary in nature. Winning is a personal benchmark always to be valued but not exalted above others. --- Ivan / Atrayo.

Outwardly one's life may suffer every kind of limitation, from bodily paralysis to miserable surroundings, but inwardly it is free in meditation to reach out to a sphere of light, beauty, truth, love, and power. --- Paul Brunton. "Meditations for People in Crisis"

It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about. --- Dale Carnegie.
