We won't always know whose lives we touched and made better for our having cared, because actions can sometimes have unforeseen ramifications. What's important is that you do care and you act.

If you simply try to "do unto other as you would like them to do unto you" then you could wind up doing things to others they might not enjoy as much as you do. . . . An even more "finely tuned" rule might be what some call "The Platinum Rule," namely, "Do Unto Others as They Would Have You Do Unto Them." In other words, take time to learn about your neighbor's tastes, their mood, their nature, and their temperment, before you start "doing" things "unto them." Treat others the way they want to be treated.

All life in this universe is governed by certain clearly defined laws. People call them by different names - The Law of Cause and Effect, Karma, Newtons Third Law, etc. These very laws can be used as proof for both sides of the argument, of whether God exists or not. So, the only thing we all ever really need to do in life is to study these laws as proof of our innermost beliefs, whatever they might be.

religion must be the cause of unity, harmony and agreement among mankind. If it be the cause of discourd and hostility, if it leads to separation and creates conflict, the absence of religion would be preferable in the world...

One of the primary tests of the mood of a society at any given time is whether its comfortable people tend to identify, psychologically, with the power and achievements of the very successful or with the needs and sufferings of the underprivileged.

Hindu Belief in a (sarcastic) nutshell? __ Life on earth is specially reserved for the Ignorant and Arrogant only. And only the ones who have the courage to cling on to this deadly duo of Ignorance and Arrogance are rewarded with another chance to enjoy yet another death-birth cycle on this earth. Anyone daring to lose those two special qualities, are kicked out of this cycle (moksha). Every man to himself as the choice is his and his only.

No one seriously doubts Socrates' maxim: The unexamined life isn't worth living. Self-assessment and attempts at self-improvement are essential aspects of "the good life." Yes, we should engage in ruthless self-reflection and harsh scrutiny, but we should simultaneously acknowledge that such introspection will, at best, only result in a partial view of our minds at work. Complete objectivity is not an option.

If a person, whether your friend or not, fails in his attempt and your heart is wide enough to clap at his effort, only then you have a human heart in the real sense. Many people feel happy at others' failure, out of jealousy.
