In a true marriage, a man and a woman think more of the partnership than they do of themselves. A feeling of security and contentment comes from mutual efforts. Impatience and misunderstanding are responsible for most family problems


"An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets, the more interested he is in her." (Agatha Christie)

A wife is not her husband's servant. She deserves respect as an equal. Thougt a husband has the bread winner's duties, helping out with household chores does not demean a husband's masculinity. At the same time, a nagging and grumpy wife is not going to make up for shortages in the home.

Neither will her suspicion of her husband help to make a happy marriage. "If you want your wife to listen to you, talk to another woman." If her husband has shortcomings, only tolerance and kind words will get him to see light. Right understanding and moral conduct are the practical side of wisdom.
"Women fall in love through their ears and men through their eyes." (Woodrow Wyatt)

Common sense tells us that to lose weight, we must eat less and exercise more. But somehow we get stalled. We start on a weight-loss program with good intentions but cannot stay on track. Neither the countless fad diets, nor the annual spending of $50 billion on weight loss helps us feel better or lose weight.

Too many of us are in a cycle of shame and guilt. We spend countless hours worrying about what we ate or if we exercised enough, blaming ourselves for actions that we can't undo. We are stuck in the past and unable to live in the present—that moment in which we do have the power to make changes in our lives.

Buddhism and Science
Beginning in the nineteenth century and continuing to the present day, both Buddhists and admirers of Buddhism have proclaimed the compatibility of Buddhism and science. Their assertions have ranged from modest claims about the efficacy of meditation for mental health to grander declarations that the Buddha himself anticipated the theories of relativity, quantum physics and the big bang more than two millennia ago.

In Buddhism and Science by Donald S. Lopez Jr. is less interested in evaluating the accuracy of such claims than in exploring how and why these two seemingly disparate modes of understanding the inner and outer universe have been so persistently linked.

Modern life is a struggle, a struggle to gain monetary rewards, comfort and luxury.
Instead of bringing happiness, this lifestyle brings anxieties and stress.
There are important moments in everyone's life when all material things are of little value when compared of the mental
or spiritual joy of detachment from worldly thing.

In living a lay life, the importance of economic welfare for leading a good life cannot be understand.
We should not pretend that people can be happy if they are starving and living under miserable conditions.
Poverty and living in slum areas can stifle human happiness. It is a wretched life in the slums if a large family has to live, eat, sleep and procreate in one small hut.
