Lateral Thinking

Edward De Bono is the founder of the Lateral Thinking concept in the 1960s. And has authored many books including The Six Thinking Hats.

The winner is the chef who takes the same ingredients as everyone else and produces the best results.

Complexity means distracted effort. Simplicity means focussed effort.

Philosophy is about analysis, not thinking. We humans are very good at analysis but useless at thinking.

You can analyse the past.But you have to design the future.

God's Ultimate Gift to Man - Dreams.

Famous Dream Quotes hand-picked for You to read and follow.

If you can dream it, you can do it.
Walt Disney

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?
George Bernard Shaw

Be careful what you wear to bed at night, you never know who you'll meet in your dreams.

We have got to have a dream if we are going to make a dream come true.
Denis E. Waitley

It's not enough to have a dream, Unless you're willing to pursue it. It's not enough to know what's right, Unless you're strong enough to do it. It's not enough to learn the truth, Unless you also learn to live it. It's not enough to reach for love, Unless you care enough to give it Men who are resolved to find a way for themselves will always find opportunities enough; and if they do not find them, they will make them.
Samuel Smiles

Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.
Carl Jung

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
Henry David Thoreau

Dreams are like stars, you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through the bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
Woodrow Wilson

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

I have no theory about dreams, I do not know how dreams arise. And I am not at all sure that - my way of handling dreams even deserves the name of a "method." I share all your prejudices against dream-interpretation as the quintessence of uncertainty and arbitrariness. On the other hand, I know that if we meditate on a dream sufficiently long and thoroughly, if we carry it around with us and turn it over and over, something almost always comes of it. This something is not of course a scientific result to be boasted about or rationalized; but it is an important practical hint which shows the patient what the unconscious is aiming at. Indeed, it ought not to matter to me whether the result of my musings on the dream is scientifically verifiable or tenable, otherwise I am pursuing an ulterior-and therefore autoerotic-aim. I must content myself wholly with the fact that the result means something to the patient and sets his life in motion again. I may allow myself only one criterion for the result of my labours: does it work? As for my scientific hobby-my desire to know why it works-this I must reserve for my spare time.
The Aims of Psychotherapy

No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see the possibilities - always see them, for they are always there.
Norman Vincent Peale

Whatever you can dream, begin to do it. Boldness has the power and magic in it.

We grow great by dreams ... Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they [flourish]; bring them to the sunshine and light, which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.
Woodrow Wilson

Wake up in the morning with a dream in my eyes.
Allen Ginsberg

The end of wisdom is to dream high enough to lose the dream in the seeking of it.
William Faulkner

To accomplish great things, we must not only act,
but also dream; not only plan,
but also believe.
Anatole France

We make realities out of our dreams and dreams out of our realities. We are the dreamers of the dream.
Roald Dahl

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakens.
Carl Jung

I didn't even dream it would be so good. But I would never let my children come close to the thing
Vladimir Zworykin, inventor of television

Nothing happens unless first a dream.
Carl Sandburg

Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.
Nothing happens unless first a dream.
Carl Sandburg

I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams,
and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the Dreams shall never die.
Edward Kennedy

Strive, Seek, Find Your Dream. Good Luck.

Famous Quotes on Money

Money is like manure, it should be spread around.

Brooke Astor, the multimillionaire Manhattan socialite.

Famous Romantic Lyrics

Isn´t It Romantic

Are the stars just shining brighter?
Is that perfume in the air?
Seems the moon has got control of me
And I don´t really care
With our bodies gently swaying
To the rhythm of the night
Has there ever been a place or time
That ever felt so right
Oh, I´ve dreamed about this moment
Ever since I saw your face
Now I never wanna let it slip away

Isn´t it romantic
How our kisses seem to set the night on fire?
Baby, when I look at you it takes my breath away
Isn´t it romantic
when we close our eyes and hold each other tight?
If only love could always be this way
There´s a samba playing somewhere
Or is it just my beating heart?
I can swear I hear the strumming of
A classical guitar
Playing softly while you whisper
All the words I´ve longed to hear
As I pull your body close to mine
The world just disappears
Oh, I dreamed about this moment
Ever since I saw your face
Now I never wanna let it slip away

Isn´t it romantic
How our kisses seem to set the night on fire?
Baby, when I look at you it takes my breath away
Isn´t it romantic
when we close our eyes and hold each other tight?
If only love could always be this way
Isn´t it romantic
How our kisses seem to set the night on fire?
Baby, when I look at you it takes my breath away

Isn´t it romantic
when we close our eyes and hold each other tight?
If only love could always be this way

Isn´t it romantic
How our kisses seem to set the night on fire?
Baby, when I look at you it takes my breath away
Isn´t it romantic
when we close our eyes and hold each other tight?
If only love could always be this way.

True Value of Money

Money has little value to its possessor unless it also has value to others.

Leland Stanford

Edmund Spenser Love Poems

One day I wrote her name upon the strand,
But came the waves and washed it away:
Again I wrote it with a second hand,
But came the tide, and made my pains his prey.
Vain man, said she, that dost in vain assay
A mortal thing so to immortalize!
For I myself shall like to this decay,
And eek my name be wiped out likewise.
Not so (quoth I), let baser things devise
To die in dust, but you shall live by fame:
My verse your virtues rare shall eternize,
And in the heavens write your glorious name;
Where, whenas death shall all the world subdue,
Our love shall live, and later life renew.

Percy Bysshe Shelley Love Poems

The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another's being mingle--
Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;--
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Famous Osho Quotes

I have been misunderstood perhaps more than anyone else ever, but it has not affected me, for the simple reason that there is no desire to be understood. It is their problem if they don't understand. I am not going to waste my sleep because millions of people are misunderstanding me.

Osho, Baghwan Rajneesh, mystic and guru

Quote about Father

It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.

Anne Sexton

Famous Love Poems

The Passionate Shepherd to His Love
Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That valleys, groves, hills and fields,
Woods, or steepy mountain yields.

And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks
By shadow rivers, to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of roses,
And a thousand fragrant posies;
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle,
Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle.

A gown made of the finest wool,
Which form our pretty lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold,
With buckles of the purest gold.

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs,
An if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me, and be my love.

The shepherd swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May-morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me, and be my love.

Christopher Marlove (1543 - 1607), English Poet.

Love for Life

I love being alive and will be the best man I possibly can.
I will take love wherever I find it and offer it to everyone who will take it.
I will seek knowledge from those wiser and teach those who wish to learn from me.

Duane Allman

Lao Tzu thoughts on Leaders

Superior leaders get things done with very little motion. They impart instruction not through many words, but through a few deeds. They keep informed about everything but interfere hardly at all. They are catalysts, and though things would not get done as well if they were not there, when they succeed they take no credit. And, because they take no credit, credit never leaves them.

Lao-Tzu, Chinese Philosopher

Famous John F Kennedy Quotes

Ask not what your country can do for you…ask what you can do for your country.

There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.

One-fifth of the people are against everything all the time.

Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all.

Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.

You know nothing for sure . . . except the fact that you know nothing for sure.

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetimes on this planet. But let us begin.

We must seek, above all, a world of peace; a world in which people dwell together in mutual respect and work together in mutual regard.

Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.

When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters--one
represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.

The quality of American life must keep pace with the quantity of American goods. This country cannot afford to be materially rich and spiritually poor.

Democracy is a difficult kind of government. It requires the highest qualities of self-discipline, restraint, a willingness to make commitments and sacrifices for the general interest, and also it requires knowledge.

Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.
The human mind is our fundamental resource.

What is objectionable, what is dangerous, about extremists is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.

Freedom has many difficulties and democracy is not perfect, but we have never had to put a wall up to keep our people in, to prevent them from leaving us.
Speakin in Berlin, Germany on 26 June 1963

The free way of life proposes ends, but it does not prescribe means.

Finally, it should be clear by now that a nation can be no stronger abroad than she is at home. Only an America which practices what it preaches about equal rights and social justice will be respected by those whose choice affects our future. Only an America which has fully educated its citizens is fully capable of tackling the complex problems and perceiving the hidden dangers of the world in which we live.

Famous Mahatma Gandhi Quotes

The Roots of Violence: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles.

Mahatma Gandhi: Indian spiritual leader, (1869-1948)

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Best Jesse Owens Quotes

The black fist is a meaningless symbol. When you open it, you have nothing but fingers -- weak, empty fingers. The only time the black fist has significance is when there's money inside. There's where the power lies.

One chance is all you need.

Find the good. It's all around you. Find it, showcase it and you'll start believing it.

It's like having a pet dog for a long time. You get attached to it, and when it dies you miss it.
On being asked how he felt when his world records were broken.
I always loved running…it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.

Jesse Owens, The Buckeye Bullet

The Free Spirit of America

In America,anybody can become somebody.

Jesse Owens to the American media

Talent comes from the villages

You take some of the great champions in America. You take, for instance, a person like Joe Louis, the former heavyweight champion of the world. Joe Louis came out of a village in Alabama and then he moved into the big city and then he got his change in amateur athletics and amateur boxing, and then he went on to be the heavyweight champion of the world.

Take, for instance, one of the small villages you have in your country -- that is where you are going to find a great deal of talent and a great deal of wisdom. An institution in the United States was built by a man who was born in a log cabin and lived in a very small village, and that institution is Tuksegee, Alabama, and the man who founded it was Booker T Washington, who is one of our great men in America, as far as education or educators are concerned. So you see, it does not have to be a person born in a large city. It does not mean that he has to have all the things that are going to make him a champion. Champions are born in hamlets and villages all over the world, so I still say that we are going to have one here to.

Jesse Owens in an interview to Eric Prabhakar

When I came back to my native country, after all the stories about Hitler, I couldn't ride in the front of the bus, Owens said. I had to go to the back door. I couldn't live where I wanted. I wasn't invited to shake hands with Hitler, but I wasn't invited to the White House to shake hands with the President, either.

Olympic Winning athelete Jesse Owens on his struggle to live despite winning olympic gold medals

Not Giving up

I decided I wasn't going to come down. I was going to fly. I was going to stay up in the air forever.

on his final world record in long jump, 26 feet, 5 and 5/16

Symbol of Human Struggle

Perhaps no athlete better symbolized the human struggle against tyranny, poverty and racial bigotry. His personal triumphs as a world-class athlete and record holder were the prelude to a career devoted to helping others. His work with young athletes, as an unofficial ambassador overseas, and a spokesman for freedom are a rich legacy to his fellow Americans.

President Jimmy Carter

The Leap of the Century

It dawned on me with blinding brightness. I realized: I had jumped into another rare kind of stratosphere -- one that only a handful of people in every generation are lucky enough to know.

Jesse Owens on his Olympic achievements

Achieving your dream

We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes
an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.

    When not to quit proverb

    The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.

    Chinese Proverb

    My Love for You

    How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
    I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
    My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
    For the ends of being and ideal grace.
    I love thee to the level of every day's
    Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
    I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
    I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
    I love thee with the passion put to use
    In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
    I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
    With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
    Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
    I shall but love thee better after death.

    Elizabeth Barrett Browning, poet

    Truth Matters

    It needs two people to speak the truth. One to tell and the other to listen.

    Valentine Song

    If we must be together mate
    Make it up to me now!
    Buy me books and dark chocolate
    Avoid cliches like WOW!

    Don’t be a wastrel with that purse
    Make me laugh instead,
    Spin me reams of jolly verse
    Like stars let it spread!
    Remember the time you sent greetings

    For each festive event?
    Whatever happened to those favourite things
    Your austerity won't it relent?
    Go ahead and goof with all the gals,

    It's all fair game and jest;
    But remember we are the best of pals
    Don’t treat me like the rest!
    For I am a special, cool dude
    Friendly, frank and sincere

    Despite my dark and sombre mood
    I am transparent, pure and clear.
    So don’t manipulate or assign
    Parameters to this friendship terrain;

    Don’t analyse, control or design
    Let full freedom naturally reign.
    Yes, we are not spectacular
    Like the princess in the fable,

    Or wax eloquent in the vernacular
    Like artists capable.
    Just what will it take - tell me please!
    Will it be poetry, prayer or song?

    Mystically, magically won't you appease
    My soul before too long?
    For the heart aches in penury
    As we listlessly ponder and pine,

    O’ how much longer this January
    My dearest, sweetheart mine!

    Rajeshwari Iyer, South Asian Women's Forum

    Unselfish Love

    Of all the Qualifications, Love is the most important, for if it is strong enough in a man, it forces him to acquire all the rest, and all the rest without it would never be sufficient. Often it is translated as an intense desire for liberation from the round of births and deaths, and for union with God. But to put it in that way sounds selfish, and gives only part of the meaning. It is not so much desire as will, resolve, determination. To produce its result, this resolve must fill your whole nature, so as to leave no room for any other feeling. It is indeed the will to be one with God, not in order that you may escape from weariness and suffering, but in order that because of your deep love for Him you may act with Him and as He does. Because He is Love, you, if you would become one with Him, must be filled with perfect unselfishness and love also.

    Jiddu Krishnamurthi, philosopher and messiah from India
    Uncoditional love may be seen through the eyes of a child.

    Positive quote about Love

    Total negation is the essence of the positive. When there is negation of all those things that thought has brought about psychologically, only then is there love, which is compassion and intelligence.

    Choice in Romance

    ...that was the first thing I had to learn about her, and maybe the hardest I've ever learned about anything--that she is her own, and what she gives me is of her choosing, and the more precious because of it. Sometimes a butterfly will come to sit in your open palm, but if you close your hand, one way or the other, it--and its choice to be there--are gone.

    Old Flame Lyrics

    Old Flame
    I saw you staring at each other
    I saw your eyes be-gin to glow
    And I could tell you once were lover's
    You ain't hidding nothing I don't know
    There's an old flame, burning in your eyes
    That tears can't drown,and make-up can't disguise
    That old flame may not be stronger,
    but it's been burning longer
    Than any spark I might have,
    started in your eyes
    You said it ended when he left you
    You say your love for him is gone
    But those old memories still up set you
    For I might be a memory before to long


    Madness in Love

    There's always some madness in Love. But there's always some reason in madness.

    Zidane Videos, Video Games, Analysis, Headbutt Clips

    Do it The Zidane Way Video?

    When Zinedane Zidane head butted Materazzi in the FIFA 2006, little did he realise that France was going to lose beacuse of that Zidane action.

    To make matters worse, the media is abuzz with stories of the actual cause of that infamous head ramming on Materrazi.

    Speculation was rife that Materazzi insulted Zidane calling him a "terrorist". And, news channels were quick to employ French and Italian Lip Readers to figure out what actually transpired.

    The Zidane Truth
    Materazzi has revealed that he neither called the FIFA Golden Boot inner a 'terrorist' nor did he insult the French soccer icon's mother, who was reportedly ill at that time.
  • See the complete video, not available on most television channels.

    "I held his shirt .. for only a few seconds, he turned toward me and scoffed at me, looking at me with super arrogance, up and down: 'if you really want my shirt, you can have it later.' (Zidane said) It's true, I shot back with an insult," La Gazzetta dello Sport quoted Materazzi as saying.
    The paparazzi suggested that Materazzi may have squeezed Zidane's nipples.

  • The matter hasn't ended as yet, with a section of Italian fans asking

    FIFA to withdraw the Golden Boot awarded to the former Real Madrid player, Zidane.

    Amazing things about Zidane Vs Materazzi

  • (Just drag Zidane (in pic 2) and do the head butt yourself.)

    ZIDANE a new way to solve problems.. do it like zidane.

  • I think it's best for each other to forgive. Materazzi was wrong no doubt in insulting Zidane. But that mean that you can physically assault a person. Zidane hasn't been a good model to younsters watching the game.

    Well, I have a lot of time on airplanes. That's enough to do a book. I've written several books on flights.

    Cute pick up lines for positive romantic use.

    Have you always been this cute, or did you have to work at it?

    I just had to come talk with you. Sweetness is my weakness.

    Baby, you must be a broom, 'cause you just swept me off my feet.

    Was your father a thief? Because he stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.

    Didn't it hurt when you fell from heaven?

    You must be tired because you've been running through my mind all day.

    The only things your eyes haven't told me is your name.

    Mature Love

    Immature love says: "I love you because I need you."

    Mature love says: "I need you because I love you."

    Erich Fromm (1900–1980), U.S. psychologist, author of Hope

    Secret of Love

    Love is the profoundest of secrets. Divulged, even to the beloved, it is no longer Love. As if it were merely I that loved you. When love ceases, then it is divulged.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862), U.S. philosopher

    Positive side of Love

    ...that was the first thing I had to learn about her, and maybe the hardest I've ever learned about anything--that she is her own, and what she gives me is of her choosing, and the more precious because of it. Sometimes a butterfly will come to sit in your open palm, but if you close your hand, one way or the other, it--and its choice to be there--are gone.

    Barbara Hambly, Spoken by John Aversin, Dragonsbane

    In love with you

    I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.


    Breaking up with Valentine

    I'm in Love!!

    "If you don't love me for me,
    don't love me at all,
    because you are loving someone else." - ?
    "It's rock-paper-scissors as to whether
    I will get over you at all
    It's hand against hand and both hands are mine
    I never thought I'd see the day when I would say,
    I give up And break the stallions of my wildest expectations
    But I do not want to know you this way, surrounded by so much pain
    And how am I supposed to let go of you this way?

    Positive Habits for Children - The Joy of Reading

    An uncle in the neighborhood stimulated my interest for books, when I was in fourth standard. Every Saturday he used to bring an Enid Blyton book. Sometimes the joy of books made me skip playing sessions. Today, I owe much of my knowledge of that uncle. Not all children ate as luck, which is why you should take your child into the world of books.

    Begin by reading bedtime stories and you will soon see your child longing for the nights to come. Choose stories that have plenty of pictures, are about either children or animals. Open the book for them to see and relate to the characters in the book. Reading stirs up the child’s imagination, helps build up their vocabulary and enriches their understanding of the world around him.

    You can even read to children below two years. Although they may not understand everything, you will see that they respond to your voice, relates to things they understands and is generally excited and sits glued to your lap.

    When children old enough to read, buy comics, the Panchatantra tales or stories from the Ramayana and Mahabharata. Then you could progress to Lad Bird, Harry Potter, Enid Blyton and the like. If child is old enough make it a habit to read the newspaper together. It’s not necessary to read only in the hall, get to the terrace, balcony, under a tree or the garden. The surroundings too add to the joy.

    A small library is a must in the home. Start by browsing through the second-hand bookstalls on the pavements in the neighborhood. An encyclopedia is certainly recommended. Membership in a school or private library will go a long way in keeping him occupied when there’s time in hand.

    Dramatize when you read, let your voice go up and down, use your hands frequently to portray the size of the animal being spoken about. This helps the child visualize and they will display a range of feelings wonder, anger, revulsion, joy etc…Teach them to visualize by asking to close their eyes and imagine the elephant bathing in the river. Can your child see the trunk pumping the water on the elephant’s back? Keep an eye on the child’s interest, if it wants shut the book and try anther activity.

    Passion for Love Harper Lee

    What is love? Many things are love--indeed, love is present in pity, compassion, romance, affection.

    Few of us achieve compassion; to some of us romance is a word; in many of us the ability to feel affection has long since died; but all of us at one time or another- be it for an instant or for our lives- have departed from ourselves: we have loved something or someone. Love, then is a paradox: to have it, we must give it. Love is not an intransitive thinglove is a direct action of mind and body.

    Without love, life is pointless and dangerous. Man is on his way to Venus, but he still hasn't learned to live with his wife. Man has succeeded in increasing his life span, yet he exterminates his brothers six million at a whack. Man now has the power to destroy himself and his planet: depend upon it, he will - should he cease to love.

    Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

    To my Caring Husband

    To my Valentine

    My love, this is the bitterest, that thou---
    Who art all truth, and who dost love me now
    As thine eyes say, as thy voice breaks to say---
    Shouldst love so truly, and couldst love me still
    A whole long life through, had but love its will,
    Would death that leads me from thee brook delay.

    Robert Browning, Poem

    Positive thought about Overcoming Fear

    Most fears cannot withstand the test of careful scrutiny and analysis. When we expose our fears to the light of thoughtful examination they usually just evaporate.

    Express Love to Valentine

    The two of us touched at a moment in time .
    We created a dream, which was purely divine.
    We walked through forests all green and lush.
    We waltzed into infinity, which brought forth a rush.
    We soared over mountains with particular delight.
    Now, back from fantasy, we have shed new light,
    on an age old problem we did not comprehend.
    All that was needed was to reach out and touch.
    Ever since than we have learned so much.
    Just imagine, if we hadn't taken that moment in time,
    I would never be yours. You would never be mine.
    Will you be my Valentine?

    Tell your Valentine quote

    One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love.
    Sopocles, Greek dramatist

    Must love be ever treated with profaneness as a mere illusion? Or with coarseness as a mere impulse? Or with fear as a mere disease? Or with shame as a mere weakness? Or with levity as a mere accident? Whereas it is a great necessity, lying at the foundation of human existence, morality and happiness, mysterious, universal, inevitable as death.
    Harriet Martineau.
    Love…. is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.
    Helen Keller

    Romantine Valentine Poem


    Remember me when I am gone away,
    Gone far away into the silent land;
    When you can no more hold me by the hand,
    Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
    Remember me when no more day by day
    You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
    Only remember me; you understand
    It will be late to counsel then or pray.
    Yet if you should forget me for a while
    And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
    For if the darkness and corruption leave
    A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
    Better by far you should forget and smile
    Than that you should remember and be sad.

    Christina Rossetti

    Romantic quote for your Valentine

    Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes,
    one within the other,
    that come from the puzzling East,
    however many you discover there is always one more.

    J.M.Barrie, The Adventures of Peter Pan

    Shakespeare's poem for Valentines

    Shall I Compare Thee to a Summers day

    Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?
    Thou are more lovely and more temperate:
    Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
    And Summer's lease hath all too short a date:
    Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
    And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
    And every fair from fair sometime declines,
    By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd:
    But thy eternal Summer shall not fade
    Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
    Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
    When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st:
    So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
    So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

    William Shakespeare, British playwright

    Surrender to Valentine

    Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to love.

    Virgil, Roman poet

    Poem for Valentine

    Till we meet,
    Time will just crawl,

    The days will be spent in day-dreaming,

    The nights in fantasy-land!
    My heart beats at a slower pace,

    Except when I hear your voice;

    At first I was a little frightened
    to share myself with you,

    But you soon laid all my fears to rest.

    Till we meet,
    I know that I’ll miss you every moment of the day,

    Minutes seem to be hours,
    Hours run into months

    Each month seems to stretch into eternity...

    Sacrifices and compromises are the order of the day,

    But hopefully one day, they too shall be gone.
    I look up at the stars in the sky,

    But I guess they’ll only sparkle brightly when I’m with you.

    Till we meet,
    Through the fog that envelops me,

    I stare, sightless at the horizon knowing that you are right there,

    The food I eat, tasteless,

    Till you are there by my side to share it with;

    I am tempted to drink myself into oblivion,

    Hoping that will send me spinning into orbit

    And maybe land in a place close to you...

    Where your waiting arms gather me close, never to let go...

    Till we meet,
    I will not feel whole, my world seems incomplete,
    Am waiting for that glorious day
    When our eyes first make contact across a room,
    And recognize each other instantly,

    Wide smiles on our faces, almost breaking into a run

    To cover the remaining distance and turn it into closeness.

    Our bodies and souls collide in blissful memories

    Of words oft-spoken virtually, but now translated into reality,
    I love you....the words will take on another dimension,
    Au revoir till we meet again in the real world....

    Inspiring Margaret Thatcher Quote

    Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's when you've had everything to do, and you've done it.

    Sweet lines for Your Valentine

    When Lilacs Last in the Door-yard Bloom’d

    WHEN lilacs last in the door-yard bloom’d,
    And the great star early droop’d in the western sky in the night,
    I mourn’d—and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.

    O ever-returning spring! trinity sure to me you bring;
    Lilac blooming perennial, and drooping star in the west,
    And thought of him I love.

    O powerful, western, fallen star!
    O shades of night! O moody, tearful night!
    O great star disappear’d! O the black murk that hides the star!
    O cruel hands that hold me powerless! O helpless soul of me!
    O harsh surrounding cloud, that will not free my soul!

    In the door-yard fronting an old farm-house, near the white-wash’d palings,
    Stands the lilac bush, tall-growing, with heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
    With many a pointed blossom, rising, delicate, with the perfume strong I love,
    With every leaf a miracle......and from this bush in the door-yard,
    With delicate-color’d blossoms, and heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
    A sprig, with its flower, I break.

    In the swamp, in secluded recesses,
    A shy and hidden bird is warbling a song.

    Solitary, the thrush,
    The hermit, withdrawn to himself, avoiding the settlements,
    Sings by himself a song

    Song of the bleeding throat!
    Death’s outlet song of life—(for well, dear brother, I know
    If thou wast not gifted to sing, thou would’st surely die.)

    Over the breast of the spring, the land, amid cities,
    Amid lanes, and through old woods, (where lately the violets peep’d from the ground, spotting the gray debris;)
    Amid the grass in the fields each side of the lanes—passing the endless grass;
    Passing the yellow-spear’d wheat, every grain from its shroud in the dark-brown fields uprising;
    Passing the apple-tree blows of white and pink in the orchards;
    Carrying a corpse to where it shall rest in the grave,

    Coffin that passes through lanes and streets,

    Through day and night, with the great cloud darkening the land,

    With the pomp of the inloop’d flags, with the cities draped in black,

    With the show of the States themselves, as of crape-veil’d women, standing,

    With processions long and winding, and the flambeaus of the night,

    With the countless torches lit—with the silent sea of faces, and the unbared heads,

    With the waiting depot, the arriving coffin, and the sombre faces,

    With dirges through the night, with the thousand voices rising strong and solemn;

    With all the mournful voices of the dirges, pour’d around the coffin,

    The dim-lit churches and the shuddering organs—Where amid these you journey,

    With the tolling, tolling bells’ perpetual clang;

    Here! coffin that slowly passes,

    I give you my sprig of lilac.

    Night and day journeys a coffin.

    Kahlil Gibran's Love Poem

    Romantic Love Poems of Kahlil Gibran

    Then said Almitra, "Speak to us of Love."

    And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:

    When love beckons to you follow him,

    Though his ways are hard and steep.

    And when his wings enfold you yield to him,

    Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

    And when he speaks to you believe in him,

    Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

    For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.

    Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,

    So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

    Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.

    He threshes you to make you naked.

    He sifts you to free you from your husks.

    He grinds you to whiteness.

    He kneads you until you are pliant;

    And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred

    All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that
    knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.

    But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,

    Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,

    Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.

    Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

    Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;

    For love is sufficient unto love.

    When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, I am in the heart of God."

    And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

    Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.

    But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

    To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

    To know the pain of too much tenderness.

    To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

    And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

    To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

    To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;

    To return home at eventide with gratitude;

    And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

    Kahil Gibran, Lebanese poet.
