English Proverbs- WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY

English_Master March 19, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY ‘Will’ means not the ordinary desire but an unflinching, undaunting wish to achieve something. If you have a will to achieve your goal, you will positively overcome the difficulties that come in your way. Every problem has its solution. Whatever, inventions are seen today were a problem one day, but the will and hard work of the inventor found their solution. Impossible is possible for the persons of strong will. Path of success runs through many labyrinths of failures. One, who has a will to achieve success, never gets frustrated by the odds and failures of the path. Every successful man fails many times but with unshaken faith and strong will, he becomes successful one day. Think high, try your best, without being daunted by the odds of the path, and success is yours. One can certainly win and achieve one’s goal, if one firmly believes in self and makes up one’s mind to lead and succeed. The secret of success lies in the determination, dedication, and perseverance of a man. A man who strides majestically with firm steps and unshaken faith, no matter what the odds and obstacles, is the man who actually finds his way and...

English Proverbs- TRUST YOURSELF TO GET SUCCESS

English_Master March 18, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion TRUST YOURSELF TO GET SUCCESS To achieve your goals and get success, you must believe and trust in yourself. Unless you belief and trust yourself, true success may not happen for you. Most people fail in life because they don’t trust themselves. They have made many resolutions and set up many goals that failed and so become disappointed. They listen to the pessimistic opinions of their family members and friends. Stay away from negative people who enjoy telling you all the time why you’ll never succeed. Seek and associate with positive people who have the same ambitions in life like you do. Think about both sides of everything before doing it. Have big dreams. Let your imagination soar high to the blue sky. No matter what happens to you in life, don’t give up on yourself. Never give up on your dreams and aspirations. Some dreams may take a short time to become a reality while others may take a long time, but all the same they will come true someday, if you keep moving on. One becomes what one dreams to be, only if one can be persistently diligent and determined. Self belief and self-efficacy are the two most basic elements for one to move forward...

English Proverbs- ‘THINK POSITIVE’ WIN POSITIVELY

English_Master March 18, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion ‘THINK POSITIVE’ WIN POSITIVELY “A man who wins is the man who thinks He can”.—Walter D Wintle Positive thinking leads a man to success. One, who thinks that he can achieve the things, will put his best to achieve, will not be fettered by the problems in the path of success and one day he will win positively. Self confidence, determination, perseverance, and hard work are the keys to success. Every small or big, easy or complex problem has its solution. There is a way out of every labyrinth, and there is an answer to every enigma. The only requirements are the confidence, hard work and determination and you get the answer. Where there is a will, there is a way. If you find any problem, a typical one, don’t lose heart, go ahead and devote yourself fully, analyze each aspect, and get the problem solved. Every invention taken place so far was riddled with many unfound answers, but the inventor’s zeal and perseverance found the solution and a new invention took place. For a confident person, the word ‘impossible’ is not there in his dictionary. A determined and dedicated person finds way in all complexities. Undaunted by the initial problems and failures he keeps on finding...

English Proverbs-PREPAREDNESS FOR WAR FOR PRESERVING PEACE

English_Master March 18, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion PREPAREDNESS FOR WAR FOR PRESERVING PEACE Peace means freedom from war, but how can we preserve it unless or until we are well equipped for war. A peace loving nation may not have any intention to enlarge its boundaries but who can guarantee the intentions of neighbour countries. Very strange and paradoxical it seems that preparedness for war is essential for preserving peace. But the saying appears to be true for if a country is well equipped with all the modern war gadgets and weapons, other nations will have to think twice before attacking. On the other hand, a weak nation becomes prey to the whims and aggressions of powerful neighbours. Balance of power is must for preserving peace. What happened with our country when China attacked in 1962? We, being a fully peace loving country, never felt the necessity till then to equip ourselves with modern war gadgets and weapons. China, took the opportunity and attacked us, and made encroachment on our land. What did UNO do? What Super Powers did? None came to our rescue. Think of today, when we are equipped with all kinds of nuclear and other weapons, can China dare to attack us now? No…, because China well knows our preparedness for...

English Proverbs-NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS

English_Master March 18, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS One success leads to another success. If you get one success, it is usual that you get an encouragement to try to get another success. Success boosts confidence of a person. Success imbibes self respect; success motivates and fills one with glory. This change in emotional state has something to do with a truism we’ve all heard: “Nothing succeeds like success.” When you feel successful, you’re willing to tackle uncertain jobs in the belief that you’re going to succeed again. Success is the aim of success. That for we aspire for, reflects our ability and capability to do a thing. Dedication, devotion to the task and positive thinking with determination has been the important factors of success of every successful man. Nothing that comes too easily is worth having? When you want to succeed, be ready to pay the price for it, which include braving failures and setbacks and keep persistent with your efforts till the goal is achieved. Mere talking idle, day dreaming or aimless drifting, will not take you to goal, but only divert your attention and dissipate your energy and strength. Hardships, obstacles, failures are the various points in the path of success. They are not to be evaded, but...

English Proverbs-THE CHILD IS FATHER OF THE MAN

English_Master March 18, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion THE CHILD IS FATHER OF THE MAN “The childhood shows the man,  As morning shows the day.” This line which has since taken the shape of a proverb really occurs in the famous poem ‘My Heart Leaps When I Behold’ of Wordsworth, the great poet. It implies that the qualities and characteristics shown by a child often indicate what the child is going to be as a grown up man. The childhood is the reflection of future personality. The habits, traits, qualities of a man are usually the development of the habits, traits, qualities he had as a child. A careful study of the characteristic and qualities in a child can help us to foretell his future prospects. The child is father of the man is proved true in many cases. See the example of Shivaji who, during his childhood, loved so much to hear the stories of famous heroes of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, became later a great warrior himself. Michael, the famous sculptor and painter, during his childhood used to make drawings on the pots, easels, stools and other things belonging to an old painter. The old painter said, “One day this boy will beat me.” A Young Italian lad, Titian, was very fond...

English Proverbs-JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED

English_Master March 17, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED Many Chief Justices, Judges of the Supreme Court, the High Courts, the Law Ministers, the Law Commission, the Media, the Great Writers and Thinkers have all lamented over the delay in the dispensation of justice. The inordinate delay in the provision of relief amounts to the virtual denial of any relief found in number of cases. If a case of compensation in a motor car accident case is decided after ten years, when the career of the children is already spoiled for want of money, if a case of property is decided after the death of the plaintiff, what is the value or use of such a decision? Seen in the real or practical sense the courts or the government or the procedures are the real culprits for the sufferings of the plaintiff. Instead of saying that Justice Delayed is Justice denied, we should say Delayed Justice is the Injustice. Millions of cases are pending in various courts, tribunals and commissions for disposal. None can predict about the minimum or maximum time for disposal of any kind of cases by the courts, whether, it is a civil case or a criminal case or a case of claims of compensation to a victim...

English Proverbs-KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

English_Master March 17, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion KNOWLEDGE IS POWER Doing right things at right time in the right way, produces the right, results, we aspire. Times have gone, when power of sword ruled the world. Even during that period, the power of sword alone never ruled, but the knowledge about enemy, knowledge about own strength and knowledge of the right time for attack always had played a crucial role in grabbing the power. In other words, knowing what to do at what time—in what direction and how, are the various parameters that lead to sure success. Knowing our timings well, knowing our goals well, knowing our strengths and weaknesses well and shaping them, in right direction, we can achieve what we aspire to achieve. Knowledge gives power to mobilize the things in right direction and so it is said that knowledge is power. If we venture to establish any business or wish to achieve any goal, we must acquire full knowledge of all the things including our limitations and weaknesses. Knowledge gives us capacity and capabilities to know the result of our actions, probability of success and failure, propriety of our venture and so knowledge is said to be power. For a country, knowledge about its friends and foes, and knowledge about the...

English Proverbs- KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT CHARACTER IS DANGEROUS!

English_Master March 17, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT CHARACTER IS DANGEROUS! Character without knowledge is weak and feeble, but knowledge without character is dangerous and a potential menace to society. Character and knowledge together are the twin goals of true education. Today, most of the children are growing up in conditions that do not provide the moral or ethical framework needed to develop good character. Even when families try hard to provide a strong foundation, they often find their efforts undermined by the media, the child’s peers, and increasingly, the Internet. What good is knowledge without character? He asked. “What good is your knowledge of Physics if all you do is building bombs? What good is your knowledge of Philosophy and Ethics if you will not stand up for what’s right?” Hardly a day goes by without news stories about crime and violence. The lack of character education is increasingly apparent. The present day education gives us knowledge but no respect for the ethics, character and moral values. This lack of character is evident in society by increasing occurrences of violence in our schools, disrespect for authority, increasing emphasize in the media on violence and early sexual activity, as well as self-destructive or addictive behaviour. The rate of serious crimes -including rape, sexual...

English Proverbs-MONEY IS A GOOD SERVANT, BUT A BAD MASTER

English_Master March 17, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion MONEY IS A GOOD SERVANT, BUT A BAD MASTER No doubt, money is an essential, almost indispensable article in the present day world. It is the ‘money’ through which we can purchase all the necessary comforts and amenities of life. If you have money, you can obtain what seems impossible to others. It is the money which gives a man, confidence, credit worthiness, credentials, capacity, capabilities and courage. In present day materialistic world, money has become very powerful. The present day corruption, cut throat competition, callous degradation of moral and ethical values, are all for the sake of grabbing and accumulating more and more money. The prestige, respect, social status, commanded by a person is calculated as per his monetary status. Time has gone, when we valued a person in terms of his moral and ethical values. People were earlier known for keeping their words, for donating everything to a donee. Now, people are known in terms of their ranking in the list of rich of the world. Money has become the centre of all activities. Money and muscle power have become essential ingredients of a successful political leader. Money is regarded as omnipotent by a few people, particularly by the poor. As whatever one does not...

English Proverbs-MONEY IS DEARER THAN HONEY

English_Master March 17, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion MONEY IS DEARER THAN HONEY Money is so dear that one conceives of money as being sweeter than honey. Therefore, who can give up the desire to accumulate money, especially in household life? Everybody whether thieves, professional servants, soldiers and merchants try to acquire money even by risking their very dear lives. Money matters everywhere in the society. A rich person can purchase a finer house, a nicer car, better food, more effective schools, more courteous service. We strive and yearn for money all day long—but for what purpose? To acquire the things we want in order to fulfill our needs and make us happy. Will money really meet our needs though? Are we even aware of what our needs really are? And once we have money, will it really do us any good? Perhaps the reason so many rich, powerful and famous people descend into drugs and alcoholism is that deep down inside they sense the things they have are really very empty and temporal—a vain chasing after the wind. They experience disappointment after having acquired these things and go into denial that they still are not fulfilled and at peace. So, they must put up an act and pretend that having these things is some...

English Proverbs- FAILURES ARE THE PILLARS OF SUCCESS

English_Master March 15, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion FAILURES ARE THE PILLARS OF SUCCESS “Failure is not fatal; it can be the stepping stone to success, if you can make ‘the failure’ to work for you.” “Failures are our best teachers; they are the mirrors who show us our real face.” Every successful man fails at some time. Failure tells you about your weaknesses, shortcomings, lack of preparations, and lack of efforts. So, if you can manage to learn from failures, you will definitely reach where you started out to go. Making a mistake is not a crime, and, the ability to learn from it contributes to lasting success. Extract the lesson to be learnt from failure and try again with redoubled vigour. Facing failure makes us stronger, wiser more resolute, and spurs us on to greater efforts. There is no failure in truth saves from within, unless we are beaten there, we are bound to succeed. ‘Failures’ mean lack of preparation, lack of competitiveness, lack of analyzing the things properly. Failures not only tell us that we couldn’t prepare ourselves up to the level of success and reveal our shortcomings, but also give us encouragement to try again with more preparations, with more labour and with more hard work. Failures are the stepping stones...

English Proverbs- DILIGENCE IS MOTHER OF SUCCESS

English_Master March 15, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion DILIGENCE IS MOTHER OF SUCCESS “The heights by great men reached and kept Were not attained by sudden flight, But they, while their companions slept, Were toiling upward in the night.”—Longfellow There can’t be any short cut to success. The toil of years, the sweat of your brow, struggle you make, everything counts in achieving the goal. Looking at the biographies of great men, we find that most of the successful persons, whatever their field, inventors, artists, scientists, technocrats, sculptors, thinkers, leaders and workers of any kind, owe their success to their indefatigable hard work and dedication. They were the men who achieved their success with dedication, devotion and true hard work. This really proves that the secret of success consists in being master of our subject. Such mastery is attainable through continuous application and study. Those, who work diligently, not only achieve their goals and get success, but also remain happy, cheerful and active, which is itself a great reward even if the work does not bring success. Idleness or laziness is worse as it brings jealousy, gloom, frustration, depression which is more degrading than the failure itself. Walter Scott, the famous novelist of Scotland, who started his life as an ordinary clerk, attained the great...

English Proverbs- AS YOU SOW SO SHALL YOU REAP

English_Master March 15, 2016 No Comments
  Proverb Expansion AS YOU SOW SO SHALL YOU REAP You shall harvest what you plant, spiritual or natural. If you sow the seeds of corruption, you shall reap the fruits of corruption. If you sow the spirit of love for all, you shall reap life everlasting. If you roll a stone, to hurt someone, it will turn and roll back on you all and so if you dig a pit for someone, you will fall in it yourself. God is the great paymaster. We are his workmanship. We are the clay and he is the Potter, so do something for the God who made you and he, will not forget the things that you do but you shall receive your pay, good or bad. The theory of Karma is spoken about in many of the sacred texts of all the religions in the world and it is implied in the golden rule ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’. The implication is as you treat others, so you will be treated. What is difficult to grasp about Karma is when it is actually playing a role in your life. The survivor of abuse, who may not have ever hurt anyone in his/her life, may...

English Proverbs- ALL THAT GLITTER IS NOT GOLD

English_Master March 15, 2016 No Comments
Proverb Expansion ALL THAT GLITTER IS NOT GOLD Being guided by the appearance can be disastrous. In this world of deception and deceit, what is seen outwardly, is not the reality. Often the glittering appearance hides the foulness of wickedness. When advertisements are shown, they distort the things and the judgment of reality becomes very difficult. The good looking innocent type people are the perfect cheats of the day. The only way to save ourselves from such hypocrites is to be very /attentive and careful in life. What is exhibited and displayed outwardly should not be taken, as creditworthy. Visual appearances are commonly deceptive. The quality of a thing can only be judged by its use. In many cases, a thing appears to be very durable and cheap but it may turn out to be a duplicate. Duplicates or imitations commonly have more shine or glitter than the original one. A person can be judged by his deeds, attitude and tendency towards showing off to others. A rude man may be more helpful and co-operative than a person of pleasant countenance. A well dressed, gentlemanly looking person is apt to deceive you by his outwards looks. What he intend to show, may not be his actual intentions. Appearance may...
