"Maybe if I'd agreed to do the debutante thing like she wanted. Or taken up pageants instead of riding jump bikes with a bunch of grungy boys. I'd always tell her, why can't I do both? Who says you have to be either smart or pretty, or into girly stuff or sports? Life shouldn't be about the either/or. We're capable of more than that, you know?”

What has design got to do with simplicity?

Everything. Personally, at least.

In my years of practice designing there is one philosophy I always keep in mind-Simplicity. Don't make things more difficult than they already are. If you can explain things in five words, don't use ten. Design is essentially problem-solving. Devising a visual solution to communicate an intended message effectively. Why use ten effects to treat a graphic element when you can do it with one?

K.I.S.S. (a.k.a. Keep It Simple, Silly.)

Dream Quotes

Dreams are an inevitable part of every individual's life. Everybody dreams but only a few have the determination to realize their dreams. Mary Manin Morrissey, a great 20th century thinker, says, "You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith." Your dream is your faith. Scientists have proven that it is our subconscious mind that dreams during our sleeping state and it dreams of what our conscious mind fills it with. Therefore, dreams are nothing but a mirror of our future success. However, in some people, this acknowledgement is needed to be brought out through some solid and inspirational methods, such as dream quotes and sayings.

Bob Marley Quotes

1- Open your eyes look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?

Have you ever asked yourself this question whether you are satisfied with the kind of life you are living? If not it's time to ask yourself this question. Sit in a place where there is no one to disturb you. Close your eyes and asked yourself where I'm going in my life? What is the essence of my life? And Am I really contended with the way I'm living my life? You'll get all of these answers from your inner self. This will help you know what you actually want in life. And as Ben Stein observed, "The indispensable first step to getting the things that you want out of life is this: decide what you want."

2- Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate

Life is full of ups and down. They are part of life. Everyone has to go through tough time. But neither tough time nor happy time last forever. They come one after another. Just like night comes after day and day comes after night. We, therefore, should not get trembled and flummoxed when riding through ruts. Instead, we should be contended and keep ourselves cool no matter what time of life we are going through

3- Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny.

It's you who has to decide where you want to go. Everything is in you hands. Every thing is completely is in your control. Your destiny is in your own hands.

4- When one door is closed, don't you know, another is open.

This is one of my favorite bob Marley quotes. In fact, I would say when one door is closed thousand of others doors are open. We just have to shift our focus from that closed door and veer off to new doors.

Farewell Quotes

Goodbyes and farewells are something that no one ever wants to face. Regardless of whether it's a friendship or close romantic relationship, it's never easy. Sometimes, when it's time to say goodbye, there is no other choice.

Farewell Quotes

Some relationships just don't work out, and sometimes, there are other things standing in the way. You may have to move away or the person you are close to may have a life-threatening condition that takes them to a better place. Goodbyes are a part of everyone's life. While there is no bright side to saying farewell, there are a few quotes that you might find comforting:

1. "We Only Part to Meet Again" John Gay

This is often true in most cases. A lot of people don't see it that way, but it really can happen. For example, if you're graduating from college or high school, you know there are likely to be a lot of friends who you may not ever see again, but over the years, you make it a point to catch up. They find you and you find them. It's an almost automatic part of life that occurs without even trying. People are continuously bumping into one another in odd places at odd times because that's just the way it goes. Call it fate or call it destiny, but most of the time, you do find those you have missed and it ultimately makes up for all the time you spent apart.

2. "Don't Be Dismayed at Good-Bye's. A Farewell is Necessary Before You Can Meet Again. And Meeting Again, After Moments or Lifetimes, is Certain For Those Who Are Friends" Richard Bach

When people part, it's often not forever, regardless of the relationship. If you're faced with a circumstance that requires you to say goodbye to a close friend, one thing to keep in mind is that if you were ever truly friends in the first place, there is no way that the bond can be broken. Nothing can come between two people who really care about one another. They will always find their way back.

3. "All Farewells Should Be Sudden, When Forever" Lord Byron

There is a lot of truth to this quote as well. Someone who has to say farewell should not let it drag out. Life is so much easier when farewells are sudden, that way you're not continuously dreading the moment your loved one has to go and are able to enjoy the present. If you are the one who is saying goodbye, you automatically know that there will be people that do not want you to go and who will try to convince you otherwise. Sometimes, it's also a good thing to not even know that we ourselves have to go until the time has arrived.

4. "It's Been an Incredible Ride. Mission Accomplished. With That, I Have to Bid Farewell. I'm the Happiest Person In The World Right Now...It's Better Than I Ever Thought It Would Be" Jerome Bettis

This farewell quote is proof that not all journeys have to end in tears. Oftentimes, a farewell is nothing more than a passing from one phase of life to another. Maybe you've quit your job because you knew it wasn't right for you, or maybe you received a promotion that requires you to relocate. It's possible that you've decided to take on a new attitude and bid farewell to the "old you". Saying goodbye in a lot of cases is the best thing to do, because it allows room for growth and better things to come.

5. "Man's Feelings Are Always Purest and Most Glowing In The Hour of Meeting and Of Farewell" Jean Paul Richter

You can look at this quote in a variety of ways. One way goes back to the fact that farewells are not always forever. When you meet with someone again, you're flooded with emotions that seem to overflow from your heart and shine through you onto the one you've missed. When it's time to say goodbye (or bid a temporary farewell), those emotions are just as strong, if not stronger. You're more likely to talk about your feelings for that person and realize how much you've enjoyed their presence in your life. People rarely realize how important someone is to them until it's time for them to go, be it only for a little while, or forever.

Farewells can definitely be devastating, that is why everyone should always take time to appreciate everyone in their life because eventually, everyone will have to bid farewell. Nothing in life is forever, nor is anything in life certain. Sometimes it's nice to not think about these things, but regardless, they are still an inevitable part of life. The best way to view a farewell is in a positive light no matter how sad it may seem.
