Quote of the Day

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people
always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become
great."

Mark Twain

How do you think you can apply this in real life?

I have always been encouraged by wonderful, great people.
I have been put down by those "small" people.
I have come to see that those small people are usually very insecure individuals.
And isn't funny how it is easier to believe something bad about ourselves than something good?

I find that the easiest people to be around are those who inspire my ambitions.

HI TOMMY, ME HERE SAYING HI AGAIN
I THINK THAT NEGATIVE PEOPLE WILL STAY CLOSER TO US ONLY IF WE LET THEM TO BE.
I KEPT MY MIND BUSY AT WORK, MY FAMILY, AND AUTHOMATICALLY NEGATIVE PEOPLE LEFT ME ALONE.
I THINK THAT NEGATIVE THINKING CAN BE CURE ONLY BY THOSE WHO ARE COMMITED TO CHANGE FOR THEMSELVES, AND BY POSSITIVE AUTOSUGESTION.

HAVE YOU NOTICE THAT WHEN YOU START TO PUT THE PRINCIPLES OF THINK AND GROW RICH INTO PRACTICE, LIFE STARTS TO TEST YOU IN MANY WAYS AS YOU HAVE NEVER IMAGINE?

LIFE WILL BRING SO MANY NEGATIVE THINGS TO YOU, BUT IF YOU APPLY THOSE PRINCIPLES WITH PERSINTENCE LIFE WILL GIVE UP AND THE REWARDS WILL COME YOUR WAY.

O Casamento do Sol

Dizem que em certo tempo desejou o Sol de se casar, e todas as gentes, agravadas disso, se foram queixar a Júpiter, dizendo: - Que no Estio trabalhosamente sofriam um Sol, que com seus raios os abrasava, donde inferiam e provavam, que se o Sol casasse e viesse a ter filhos, queimaria o mundo todo; porque um Sol faria Verão calmoso na Índia, outro em Grécia, outro na Noruega e terras setentrionais; pelo que sendo todas as três zonas tórridas, não teriam as gentes onde viver. Visto isto por Júpiter, mandou que não casasse.

(Esopo, Fábulas, vertidas do grego por Manuel Mendes)

A great quote - Mark Twain always says things in the finest way, and even if you don't agree with what he says, you can't help but think about it.
Many of my friends are 'small' people - they do not encourage me to go after my dreams nor do they believe that I can. My family doesn't even think I can - and maybe I don't either.
I believe what Mark Twain says in this quote is true - and I feel these great people sometimes. They inspire me, encourage me and they make me want to live to see what tomorrow brings. But I have never met any of them - they are all people who I simply admire. People like Mark Twain who by saying a simple thing can make you feel at ease.
I won't cut my friends or my family out of my life, even though they don't believe in me. I guess in some way - I believe in myself, and by knowing that dreams do come true - for some people, I can go on, hoping they will for me...

Great quote - and very timely. I recently embraced this philosophy. I've also had the mindset for the past 5 years or so that no matter what the situation is, I can learn something positive from it. I think things happen for reasons that I won't see for a long time. Even the negative people can impact you in a positive way if you choose to see it in that light. I agree with "Blessed" about the small people feeling insecure - it's easier to make those comments about others to make yourself feel better than to actually go out of your way to be pleasant and polite and do something positive.

車燈來看看唷!
情趣用品用品對一般人來說充滿神秘動人的吸引力,許多人想一窺情趣用品用品究竟,卻又不敢太過接近,因為這個領域充斥著謠言與標籤、讓許多人深怕一碰及就會讓別人投射以異樣的眼光看待。

如果大家稍微留意一下,不難可以發現一些事,大多人在逛街時對每一間情趣用品用品店的櫥窗都會向內張望後姍姍離去,有一些人卻是假裝目不斜視的走過。畢竟台灣人的觀念並沒有像國外一樣的開放,所以還無法很公開與光明正大的踏進情趣用品用品去選購一些情趣用品用品
 
利用網路購物的方式去選購情趣用品用品是相當方便的一件事情,可以從網頁上獲得商品的詳細介紹而不必害羞的去詢問店員商品的使用方法,並且在商品的介紹上面也不亞於從店員那獲得的資訊,有些甚至還更詳細一些。
 
在台灣有許多情趣用品用品訂購網站,從以前只有少樣的情趣用品用品到今日數百種的情趣用品用品看來,這種促進閨房之樂的東西已經漸漸地為人們所接受與喜愛。

但以目前的市場來說,絕大部分的情趣用品用品網站皆以銷售台灣、大陸製造的情趣用品用品居多。原因很簡單:成本低廉,卻也因此犧牲了品質和安全性!情趣用品用品是直接與自己和最親密的另一半的身體接觸,為了節省一點點的金錢而選擇品質粗糙的廉價黑心情趣用品用品,實為相當不智的選擇。
