One is never too great or too big to ask for forgiveness – Dada J P Vaswani

When you have the will to live for your ideals, to live your passions, the warmth of your faith, confidence and conviction will melt even the most stubborn blocks of insecurity and uncertainty.

One is never too great or too big to ask for forgiveness.

When you make a mistake, admit it. Learn to say “you were right, I was wrong” or “this was my fault” or “I made a mistake”. It may seem very difficult at first, but once it is said you will feel good and considerably lighter.
The world, as we have it today, is created by a few undaunted dreamers, who never gave up on their visions despite trying conditions.
– Dada J P Vaswani
