Talha Saleem

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, when you are unable to set priorities in life, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.

Our Martyr


Our Martyr

When the people
have won a victory
whether small
or large
do you ever wonder
at that moment
where the martyrs
might be?
They who sacrificed
to bring to life
something unknown
though nonetheless more precious
than their blood.
I like to think of them
hovering over us
wherever we have gathered
to weep and to rejoice;
smiling and laughing,
actually slapping each other’s palms
in glee.
Their blood has dried
and become rose petals.
What you feel brushing your cheek
is not only your tears
but these.
Martyrs never regret
what they have done
having done it.
Amazing too
they never frown.
It is all so mysterious
the way they remain
above us
beside us
within us;
how they beam
a human sunrise
and are so proud.

True Joy In Life


In the words of  George Benard shaw:

” This is the true joy in life…being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as mighty one.. being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world would not devote itself to make you happy… I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as i live it is my privilege to do for it whatever i can. I want to be thoroughly used up when i die.For the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. Its a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment and i want to make it burn brightly as possible before handling it on to future generations. “
