“For though I was raised Protestant, my true religion is actually civility. Please note that I do not call my faith “politeness.” That’s part of it, yes, but I say civility because I believe that good manners are essential to the preservation of humanity— one’s own and others’— but only to the extent that that civility is honest and reasonable, not merely the mindless handmaiden of propriety.”
Kathleen Rooney, Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk

Jitesh  Donga
“આ જિંદગીમાં ખુશીથી જીવવાનો એક જ રસ્તો છે. ગમતું કામ કરવું. એવું કામ કરવું જેમાં મારો કંઈક અર્થ હોય, ખુશી મળતી હોય અને કામનો નશો હોય, ઝનૂન હોય. એવું કામ કરવું જે કરીને શરીર ભલે થાકે, પરંતુ મનમાં ઉત્સાહ જ હોય. જેમાં રૂપિયા ભલે ઓછા મળે પરંતુ હું ખુશ હોઉં.”
Jitesh Donga, નોર્થ પોલ [North Pole]
