Some think there’s a good chance the Universe doesn’t actually have purpose. That it just exists and will forever contract and expand, with no reason other than it can.

But to bring something into existence, something else must have existed to produce it. Big Bang aside, everything we see around us today has been created as a result of chemical and physical processes. Each processes got its purpose in the chain of events that led to it. In other words, existence without reason doesn’t make much sense, be it living or non-living. Author Joshua J. Marine has a famous quote on this:

All work and no play makes us dull guys and gals. That’s why we’ve made it a rule to have a laugh every once in a while on this blog. This quote of the day is as comical as it gets.

Studies show that having about 12 laughs a day ensures a healthy living. Of course, if you drown yourself in booze and smoke two packs of cigarettes a day, you can’t expect to live to be 100 just by laughing all the time. However, scientists agree that it helps a great deal. No wonder it feels so good to laugh!

Quote Of The Day By Henry van Dyke

Thinking objectively can get you places. Sometimes there’s no right or wrong answers. Just circumstances. Building a factory can churn out useful products and create new jobs. At the same time, said factory can hurt a local business, or pollute the environment. When timing and location are considered, the choice to erect a factory can be regarded both right and wrong.

But not doing anything never did anyone any good. Also, you can’t please everyone. So you do what you have to do. In the words of Henry van Dyke

Artist: Samuel Johnson Woolf (1880-1948). Time magazine.

I’ve never been much of a history fan. Whether it had something to do with that tyrant of a teacher I had or my limited attention span, I’ve always found it hard to commit battles and reigning years to memory.

What do successful people believe in? Ghostwriter & speaker Jeff Haden tries to answer this question with ten examples of ordinary beliefs that lie at the core of successful types. You wouldn’t believe how many simple-yet-crucial things most of us overlook.

According to the influencer, these ten beliefs are not to be ignored if you’re aiming for the stars: 1) success is only inevitable in hindsight; 2) you can choose choose yourself; 3) your role is to serve; 4) you’ll win through persistence; 5) doing things no one else is willing to do; 6) making lasting connections; 7) strategy is important… but execution is everything; 8) real leadership is determined over years, not moments; 9) work comes first and payoff comes later… often much later; 10) you’ll write your own slice of history.

There have been hundreds, if not thousands of influential characters in the history of our civilization who have stressed the importance of accepting failure in the pursuit for success. But few have articulated it in such a compelling manner as the founder of Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford.

One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again.

– Henry Ford

Although he didn’t actually invent the automobile, Henry Ford has been perhaps the most important figure in the automotive industry. He transformed what had been a simple utilitarian machine into a revolutionary method of transportation.

Quote Of The Day Is NOT By Mark Twain

One of the first rules of journalism is to get your facts straight before sitting down to write. Sadly, even the biggest publications fail to do that sometimes.

Sifting through the interwebs to find a new catchy quote for our audience, I came across this inspiring piece of writing that most sites attribute to Mark Twain, the famous 19th century author and humorist.

“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.”
