(for cultivating innovations) Make new mistakes everyday.

(along the line of some of the earlier quotes and it's a great quote to remember when you aren't happy with how things are) If you keep doing what you are doing, you'll keep getting what you are getting.

(similar line of thoughts to move us beyond the ordinary to the extra-ordinary) If you do what everybody does, you get what everybody gets.

I take refuge in the Buddha.
I take refuge in the dharma.
I take refuge in the sangha.

This poem can be read in two ways.  Itís a powerful reminder of the difficulties many face when attempting to realize their inner beauty.  First read from top down, then bottom up.  O0

ʎʇʇǝɹԀ Ugly

Iím very ugly
So donít try to convince me that
I am a very beautiful person
Because at the end of the day
I hate myself in every single way
And Iím not going to lie to myself by saying
There is beauty inside of me that matters
So rest assured I will remind myself
That I am a worthless, terrible person
And nothing you say will make me believe
I still deserve love
Because no matter what
I am not good enough to be loved
And I am in no position to believe that
Beauty does exist within me
Because whenever I look in the mirror I always think
Am I as ugly as people say?

~Abdullah Shoaib

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. ~ John Wooden
