who will cry when you die      Last week, I completed this wonderful book named ‘Who will cry when you die’ by Robin Sharma. The book is famous among frequent readers and has inspired millions of people in the world. Now that I have read it, I regret for not picking it up in early stages of my life. It reminded me of my colleague and friend from VIT, Pune, Ms. Pallavi Sandav who used to read lot of books at that time. She used to be so positive, energetic and fulfilled in every moment of her life. The book has all the life-changing thoughts and daily dose everyone needs for quality life.

     Many websites/ blogs have collection of mostly all quotes from the book. However, in this post, I’m listing out my favourite lines from the book. They are simple yet hard-hitting and worth sharing;

  1. Learn to Be Silent

  2. Forgiving someone who has wronged you is actually a selfish act rather than a selfless one.

  3. Kindness, quite simply, is the rent we must pay for the space we occupy on this planet.

  4. “Sleep is like a drug,” he explained. “Take too much at a time and it makes you dopey. You lose time, vitality and opportunities.”

  5. You will never be able to eliminate a weakness you don’t even know about. The first step to eliminating a negative habit is to become aware of it.

  6. Anyone can become angry — that’s easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way — that is not easy,” taught Aristotle.

  7. who cares what others think when you know that what you are doing is the right thing to do.

  8. We see the world, not as it is but as we are.

  9. Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it

  10. How high you will rise in your life will be determined not by how hard you work but by how well you think

  11. We have two ears and one mouth for a reason: to listen twice as much as we speak.

  12. the tougher you are on yourself, the easier life will be on you.

  13. The first step to eliminating a negative habit is to become aware of it.

  14. We all have a deep-seated need to feel important.

  15. The smallest of actions is always better than the boldest of intentions.

  16. Don’t rehearse the activities of your day while you are lying in bed trying to get to sleep. Don’t eat after 8 P.M. (If you have to eat something, have soup.) Don’t watch the news before you go to sleep. Don’t read in bed.

  17. All man’s miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.

  18. Would you really want to live in a world where everyone looked, acted and thought exactly as you do?
