Once, I wrote a quote in my Facebook post about truth. I wrote “Truth always wins is the biggest lie.” I think this is my best quote not because I wrote it myself but because it is a fact which is unfortunately true. But, why I wrote so?

Right from the childhood we humans deal with lies and falsehood. Every child witnesses its parents speaking lies. Teachers, relatives, friends, politicians, religious preachers, businessmen, etc all speak lies but pretend to be the model of truthfulness. A child is told that whatever is written in the religious books is true. They are made to believe in false stories related to God, gods, Satan, demons, hell and heaven. These false stories influence the minds of children and when they grow up, they become a hypocrite and believer of falsehood.
How many corrupt politicians, big businessmen and their slaves get punishment for their atrocities and lies? In fact, rich people seldom get punishment for their crimes. On the other hand, poor are put behind the bars for committing petty crimes. Laws are formed in such a way that only a rich person can get justice. For seeking justice, one needs help of an able lawyer. Able lawyer demands too much money. A rich person can afford to hire an able lawyer but a poor cannot. So, the poor are deprived of justice. You can see many such examples in India where poor criminals spend their whole life behind the bar for the petty crimes in which the maximum sentence would have been six months if the trial had been done in time. Also, these poor could not get bail because they were not able to pay the money for bail. Courts grant bail to rich people within a few hours, even on holidays. The USA demolished Iraq in the name of chemical weapon which were never found. Was it not the victory of falsehood?
One can witness many incidents in history where truth was defeated. In fact, whole history is written by the victors. Those who raised their voices to support truth were slain mercilessly. Socrates had to drink poison because he preached youngsters to say truth. Jesus Christ was killed because he was against lies. Mahatma Gandhi was killed because he was not the liar. So, I wrote this quote. It came in my mind after seeing victory of lies and falsehood everywhere. Falsehood and hypocrisy prevail all over the world.
My best quote is "It doesn't do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live"
The quote was given by Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer Stone. The quote stuck with me right from the very first time I heard it.
You see, so many of peeps seem to have dreams and live in this FANTASY WORLD they've built for themselves that they forget there's a life to live.
It's not bad to have dreams that you plan to achieve
I have dreams. Dreams are a necessity on the road to achievement. However, dreams are worked into manifestation. If all you do is fantasize about what you want to do, buy that dream house, buy a yacht, get your dream spouse, you will never achieve anything.
Like Myles Munroe opined, the graveyard is the Richest place in the world because in there are a lot of buried potentials that never got actualized.
Dreams are given shape when they are worked. Start from somewhere and work your vision till manifestation happens. That's it.
@Ezravandi It's hard to choose the best quote!
But I would quote a Bible verse for this, Ecclesiastes 9:4 'For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.'
It's a great reminder that as long as we are alive, and as long as we still have breath in our lungs, there is hope. In this world where sometimes everything seems so wrong, there is still hope.
P.S. As a friend shared recently, the core of our attitude must shift from despair to hope.
My best quote is : "If you spend money every day in a month but earn money just one day in a month, you will remain poor". This is what many network marketers use to motivate people to action. I love this quote because I find it to be very true. It has also inspired me never to stop dreaming, working and believing that I can make it
My favourite quote isn't a quote at all. Rather it's a poem. It was written by Max Errhmann in 1927 and is called the desiderata which literally means "desire this" it's the most important piece of literature to me right now and it goes like this
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.
These are words I strive to live by
My best quote is “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”.....i love this quote because it motivates me to never give up in life and it
also makes me to stay focused and be more determined to face whatever challenges in life and ensure that i overcome them...
