Gods in the chrysalis

Some men see things as they are and say why? I dream of things that never were and say why not? The real difference between men is energy. A strong will, a settled purpose, an invisible determination can accomplish almost anything and in these lies the distinction between great men and little men. Sometimes, life doesn’t always present the perfect scenario on a platter of gold. Only men, who take a moment to think, plan to grab it from life. You will become as small as your controlling desire, as great as your dominant aspiration. No matter how small things ...

COMPETENCIES OF THE STARS

Controversy has arisen often times that stars are born over the concept of others that stars are made.

Personality is very largely determined before birth by ...
