"Money can't buy love, but it improves your bargaining position." ~ Christopher Marlowe We have most likely heard this saying in that it is better to give than to receive. Regardless of its origins, it presupposes that the act of giving is held better in regard than the act of receiving, most highly regarded by those of religious virtues and values. [ 472 more words ]

"I look formidable." ~ Vin Diesel For all the greatness, strength and capability that we human beings possess, it is but a sliver of humanity's potential realized in that glorious moment of time. Yet, like the ripening of fruits culminating in its prime sweetness , nothing lasts forever. A wise Roman philosopher-king called Marcus Aurelius once said that time is a like river, with that moment in time passing and then just as easily swept away by a new passing moment, never to return again.

"I learned the value of hard work by working hard." ~ Margaret Mead At some point in our lives, we would murmur to ourselves how unfair life is. I digress. Life is fair in its unfairness in that people always have the freedom and opportunity to pursue what they want to and to rise above their situations to be better. By remembering we always have the freedom to choose our attitude and actions in life, we can forge our destiny and give meaning to it, as Viktor E. [ 383 more words ]

"The ego is nothing other than the focus of conscious attention." ~ Alan Watts Let's set the scene. There are fish. They swim in a fishbowl full of water. They swim back and forth while interacting with each other. There is a person observing the fishes and wondering if the fishes consciously realizes they are in water and whether they understand the importance of water to their very survival.

If you've been around the block of life, you'd realized something ridiculous, in that its not what was said that matters, its what who said it that matters. This brought me to a terrifying conclusion. Most people don't know value when it stares them right in their bloody faces. Not because the item or whatever it may be in question is not valuable, rather it is because people need to be told what is valuable rather than think for themselves at all what is valuable or not.

For all the greatness that humanity can do, that doesn't mean that very greatness would indeed last forever. Only time and eternity are companions of forever. This poem best expresses this notion.. Horace Smith's "Ozymandias" In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone, Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws The only shadow that the Desert knows:— "I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone, [ 446 more words ]

“The man who makes everything that leads to happiness depends upon himself, and not upon other men, has adopted the very best plan for living happily” ~ Plato One of the hardest and harshest truths of human life is the earnest realization that the relationship between the quality and enjoyment of one's life is proportional to how much we ourselves take real responsibility for our own individual life in all its aspects.

Everything is judged by its appearance; what is unseen counts for nothing. Never let yourself get lost in the crowd, then, or buried in oblivion. Stand out. Be conspicuous, at all cost. Make yourself a magnet of attention by appearing larger, more colorful, more mysterious than the bland and timid masses. ~ Robert Greene (48 Laws of Power) Appearance is everything.

The nature of value is subjective to every person. This means that the value of something will mean differently to each individual. That something can be anything include goods, services, experiences, people and more. For simplicity's sake and easy understanding, value would be underlined from the frame of a business perspective though it can be applied on anything in our lives. [ 709 more words ]

"Even wisdom has to yield to self-interest." ~ Pindar Very early on, during an economics class, I had a lecturer explain during class that the economy and market works because of self-interest. He was very explicit and direct in mentioning that self-interest is not the same as selfishness. At the time, I was coming to terms along to the same line of thought and it was refreshing for someone else to say that. [ 432 more words ]
