    Quotations for the Month of August 2020

    .
    Patience is the highest offering and the Lord loves to receive it.
    ધૈર્ય એ સર્વોચ્ચ અર્પણ છે અને ભગવાન તેને પ્રાપ્ત કરવાનું પસંદ કરે છે.

    ― K. M. Munshi (Krishnavatara)

    નથી જાણ્યું અમારે પંથે શી આફત ખડી છે, ખબર છે આટલી કે માતની હાકલ પડી છે.

    - ઝવેરચંદ મેઘાણી

    नियति नही पूर्वनिर्धारित उसको हर क्षण, मानव निर्णय बनाता- मिटाता है ।
    Destiny is not predetermined. Each and every moment has been created and destroyed by man.

    -Dharamavir Bharati

    बुद्धिमान लोग हमेशा स्वेच्छा से ही सही रास्ते पर चलते है ।
    Intelligent people regularly walk on the right path on their own.

    -Hazari Prasad Diwedi

    कुणाचंही दु:ख असो ते कळण्याचा मार्ग या जगात एकच आहे, तो म्हणजे त्याच्या जागी आपण आहोत, अशी कल्पना करणं हा.
    Place yourself in other person's shoes to feel the pain he is going through.

    -V. S. Khandekar

    चुका दाखवताना त्या कमी कश्या करायच्या हे ही सांगितले तर त्याचा परिणाम चांगला होतो.
    Showing how to minimize the mistakes will have better impact than just identifying them.

    ― Shivaji Sawant, मृत्युंजय

    "माणूस बुद्धीच्या आणि संपत्तीच्या जोरावर जगाला सहज फसवू शकतो, पण आपल्या मनाला फसविता येणं कुणालाच शक्य नसतं."
    Even though a human can influence others with his own intellect and wealth, he cannot lie with his consciousness.

    ― Shivaji Sawant, मृत्युंजय
