Never give up. Post 6

How has your day been? Mine was exhausting, but in a good way as I exercised a lot today.
I have been enjoying interacting with you, and reading all your comments.

Today, I am sharing with you two quotes that hang on the wardrobe in my room. These are quotes I find very meaningful. I had picked these scrolls in the course of my travels (I am fortunate to be able to travel a lot) and now they hang in my room where I see them every day. I relate to them a lot, and find them profound.

Which of these quotes do you relate to? Do you relate to them at all? Are there any quotes you live by?
Share with me in my comments.

Till tomorrow, smile!

ps:Grab my books:


  1. I loved the first one. when it comes to failure, I really don't know how to move on gracefully, I find it extremely difficult to start all over again. In college I had submitted final draft of dissertation and my principal madam asked me to rewrite 6 chapters again. I was numb and I could not write a single word for two days but then the new draft was appreciated by every one. sometimes its very hard to stay motivated.

  2. I can relate to both mam. They are really good ones. The undying spirit and understanding the true meaning of life and love is so pure. There are some that I believe in too...quotes like " one smile from your side can make a difference". " Change is the only constant and if we do not change we will be dead". I have a small notebook name dream catcher in which I write quotes from books and novels I read throughout the year and which I can resonate with. I like reading those quotes whenever I feel a bit slow and sad. Eagerly waiting for your next post

  3. Hello Preeti,
    Beautiful Quotes indeed. For me, my Mother's comments about things we happened to see on our way while walking together; or her perception about life and its strange ways make more sense. Now that I am away from her, her dialogues are my constant companions. For example, whenever she would see me giving up to sleep she would always say, "Vidyarthi ko sukh kahan aur sukh chaahney wale ko vidya kahan." In English it means A student has no rest and a person who wants rest will not attain knowledge. Every little achievement demands hard work and dedication.

  4. I liked both quotes. Very true those lines are must follow in life. Thank you so much for spreading positivity which u does as always.

  5. I can relate to both of them. We should never ever give up. We should do something useful while we are here. I believe that the world needs love. These communal fights, terrorism, racism, violence, human trafficking are very unhealthy, not just for us, but for the next generation. They learn from us. Something very important today is keeping the roads clean, like we keep our homes clean. I feel blessed to be born in a democratic country. I feel that democracy should always live.

    I love many quotes. They focus on Karma, never losing faith and hope. There is no substitute for hard work and determination. If you dream of doing it, work to achieve it. Have patience. Self Love is important. Loving others unconditionally is very important. Focus on present. Don't fear. Focus on giving, not getting. Karma is watching you.

    LOVE is very important in life.

    1. One quote is very important in my life. My school's motto is "Service before self". That has made a huge difference in my life.

  6. Love both quotes and particularly the second one. I have one plastered on the wall Don't Quit that I bought during the college years in Pune over more than a decade. One fine day, remove it from the luggage and stick it to the wall. Such quotes work like the magic pill on us :)

  7. Beautiful quotes Ma'm! I can relate to both.. Actually, I'm a kind of person who loves to read quotes whenever I feel down.. They influence me a lot.. I try to find suitable quote related to every situation and now I have a good collection in my phone..
    I ll share few of them:

    "If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you.. Don't run from challenges, embrace them.. No one grows in comfort"

    "Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley"

    "Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you"

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.

When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!

The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…
