From the cradle to the grave,between this two things is called our life.Our life is too shorter than we can imagine,in this short life we don't want sorrow,we all want to make it enjoyable by filling it with so many interesting,exciting things,if we feel something that's empty we would try to fill up the empty.We could be making more money, gaining knowledge,doing something totally new,being in charge of own life,looking for meaning in the everyday and all the human rights, basically fulfilling our wants.We all have desires and we are working hard to fulfill our desires.Every man have a goal and they can do anything to reach the goal.We do not want to live a life without happiness and we all need to find what makes us happy. On the other hand,sometimes we have a lot of things in life which we do not need anymore.So, we clean those stuff from our life and giving away so that new stuff can come in our life.Like trees leave their old leafs so that new leafs can come,like nature change season one by one,one gone another season is coming. If your cup of joys is fulfilled then distribute them with others for your cup will be refilled and pass the happiness around the table.Then everyone In every spheres of our life we face many different cases,we should solve them.If we not happy with something, something that making us uncomfortable,we have to do something to fix that.We can’t ignore it,scratch where it itches and bring it out of your life.

Last of all,I want to say that I am agree with this statement –

...Wait—let’s stop there. To be honest, I kind of cringe at the thought of this being a weight loss book, because I firmly believe that we are so much more than numbers and that what really matters in life is who we are, not what we weigh. But I understand that you probably picked this book up because you’d like to be healthier and weigh less. I get it! I am very grateful that you are here, and I am excited to share my story and what I’ve learned from working with thousands of women just like you. So even though we’re not calling this a weight loss book, it definitely is a book that will help you release weight. What’s so unconventional about it is that it will tell you to stop dieting, to eat what you love, to ignore the numbers on the bathroom scale, and to change the way you think about controlling your weight. And, unlike most books about weight, we won’t be spending tons of time talking about what to eat. Instead, you’ll learn about balance, which will help you kick dieting and self-loathing to the curb. Listen, I know what you’re thinking: Balance, schmalance. You don’t care about balance. You just want to get rid of some extra pounds and fit into the jeans you wore five years ago. I understand that you want to start getting results instantly. I know how that feels. I am a recovered yoyo dieter, and I purchased so many diet books, I could probably open a bookstore with them all. I used to joke that I could teach weight loss classes because I knew so much about nutrition......

Dickson, Gordon - Dragon

...Chapter 1 At 10:30 a.m., sharp, James Eckert pulled up in front of Stoddard Hall on the Riveroak College campus, where Grottwold Weinar Hansen had his lab. Angie Farrell was not, however, ready and waiting at the curb. Of course. It was a warm, bright September morning. Jim sat in the car and tried to keep his temper un- der control. It would not be Angie's fault. That idiot of a Grottwold undoubtedly had dreamed up some- thing to keep her working overtime in spite of-or perhaps because of-the fact he knew she and Jim were supposed to go home-hunting this morning. It was hard not to lose his temper with someone like Grottwold, who was not only one of the world's non- prizes but who had been very patently trying to take Angie away from Jim and get her for himself. One of the two big doors on the front of the Stoddard Hall opened and a figure came out. But it was not Angie. It was a stocky young man with bushy reddish hair and mustache, carrying an overstaffed briefcase. Seeing Jim in the car, he came down the steps over to the car and leaned on the edge of the opened win- dow on the curb side of the front seat. "Waiting for Angie?" he asked. "That's right, Danny," said Jim. "She was supposed to be out here to meet me, but evidently Grottwold's still hanging on to her." "That's his style." Danny Cerdak was a teaching assistant in the Physics Department. He was the only other Class AA volleyball player on campus. "You're going out to see Cheryl's trailer?" "If Angie......

For Jerry, Evelyn, and Amanda INTRODUCTION You THE MISCONCEPTION: You are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is. THE TRUTH: You are as deluded as the rest of us, but that’s OK, it keeps you sane. You hold in your hands a compendium of information about self-delusion and the wonderful ways we all succumb to it. You think you know how the world works, but you really don’t. You move through life forming opinions and cobbling together a story about who you are and why you did the things you did leading up to reading this sentence, and taken as a whole it seems real. The truth is, there is a growing body of work coming out of psychology and cognitive science that says you have no clue why you act the way you do, choose the things you choose, or think the thoughts you think. Instead, you create narratives, little stories to explain away why you gave up on that diet, why you prefer Apple over Microsoft, why you clearly remember it was Beth who told you the story about the clown......
