i-TFTD #197

i-TFTD #197

#197-1. If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of potentialfor the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints; possibility never.
-Soren Kierkegaard

#197-2. There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.
-Bern Williams

#197-3. While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.
-Angela Schwindt

We all know many quotes on hope, future, potential and optimism as captured in the famous Hindi phrase, "Ummeed pe duniya kaayam hai" but we forget it when we need it most -- when faced with a difficult problem. Experts say that "possibility thinking" can be an acquired habit and that it actually helps generate more solutions.

I have always admired and tried to emulate people who keep looking to move ahead from what seems to be an impossibly stuck situation. It is much easier to moan about fate.

Once we open ourselves to learning from children, they teach us a lotincluding possibility thinking.
