H. Jackson Brown Jr. quote about regret and disappointment

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

I think H. Jackson Brown Jr. has some wise words for all those people who are too afraid to try something new, to venture out on a business or travel to the destinations that they’ve always dreamed about.

The H. Jackson Brown Jr. quote from P.S. I Love You:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

5 Tips: How to write your best letter

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

old-letters

Most people struggle with letter writing but if you follow this simple advice your letter writing ability will improve instantly.

Here are 5 tips to improve your letter writing…

 

  1. Write as if you were speaking - You want your words to come out easily on paper, as if they were in one of your conversations — so practice your letters while hearing the dialogue in your head.  It’s been said that Aristotle first gave this piece of advice in about 360 B.C. and Jane Austen has also been known to favor the same.
  2. Be honest - Tell it like it is. There’s no need to beat around the bush and it won’t help convey your message any better. Make sure you’re not holding back and say what you want to say. Your message will come out genuine.
  3. Don’t be afraid grovel - Expression is a big part of letter writing. And since you’re being honest you should also not be afraid to grovel. Hugh of Bologna wrote in his writing manual that under his guidance “the uneducated are immediately cultivated, the stutterers are immediately eloquent, the dull-witted are immediately enlightened, the twisted are immediately made straight”. So as you can see, you shouldn’t be afraid to grovel.
  4. Be spontaneous – It’s been said that formality spells death to authentic correspondence. Be spontaneous when writing a letter and it will be a refreshing to your reader. A spontaneous letter is also an honest letter.
  5. Keep it brief – I think this advice was best said in a Latin tract somewhere between 400 BC and 400 AD. Where it stated that a letter should be “restricted” and “Those that are too long, not to mention too inflated in style, are not in any true sense letters at all but treatises.”  “A letter’s aim is to express friendship briefly and set out a simple subject in simple terms. The man who utters sententious maxims and exhortations seems to be no longer chatting in a letter but preaching from the pulpit.”

We hope this will help you with your letter writing and like with most things it takes practice, so get started and good luck!

 

A romantic quote about what it means to sit silent with the one you love

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever…. connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
― C. JoyBell C.

A Wonderful Quote By Mark Twain

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

In this wonderful quote, Mark Twain tries to explain the truth of life by saying, “No matter how much you try to live up to other people’s expectations, unless you approve of your life yourself, you’ll never feel comfortable and you’ll never be truly happy”. When we lack confidence and in particular have low self esteem, we find ourselves needing the approval of others to feel good about ourselves so we should stop seeking the approval of others.
