My Quotes

I just write my thoughts. I raise some questions and answer some, open some eyes and close some and wonder why people find life so hard when it is so simple and oh so beautiful!

Some people are like trees: so rooted to their mindset that they are unable to move and explore other worlds right beside them. Some are like birds: soaring high and low, riding on air, exploring new vistas, taking risks, learning lessons, and moving on. Free as the wind. No roots, no chains. Just wings and wings...Your thoughts determine your level of freedom. They give you roots or wings. You choose. You can't fly and be chained at the same time...!
