A Teacher a Philosopher revisited from the past– Aristotle

My heartiest Greetings to you!!

My dear friend Kranti tagged me for this wonderful challenge, sometime back. Thank you so much, Kranti for thinking of me and nominating me for this wonderful Tag “Ancient Authors”.

Your blog sparkklingthoughts is wonderful indeed, and your posts are really thought-provoking and sparkling.✨

I have chosen the philosopher who laid the foundation of western philosophy with Socrates and Plato, the Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle.

Aristotle, whose name means “the best purpose”.

Aristotle (c. 384 B.C. to 322 B.C.) was a philosopher and scientist who is still considered one of the greatest thinkers in politics, psychology, and ethics. At the age of 17, he enrolled in the renowned Plato’s Academy, and for twenty years he studied with Plato. In 338, he began tutoring Alexander the Great. In 335, Aristotle founded his own school, the Lyceum, in Athens, where he spent most of the rest of his life studying, teaching and writing. Some of his most notable works include Nichomachean EthicsPoliticsMetaphysicsPoetics and Prior Analytics.

Some of my favorite quotes:

 

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.

RULES

1 Choose the author or philosopher (it should be one from the Ancient Time). Don’t know anyone? Google it. It shouldn’t be so hard.

2 Choose 3 quotes from this author/philosopher. The country of origin – doesn’t matter (Egypt, Greece… Italy). Add any info or explanation if you like.

3 Share those quotes and nominate 3 to 6 people. (Oops, that’s not obligatory)

4 The title of the post? Choose something cool. I know you are smart enough.

I am tagging you, dear friend! 🙂 (No obligation though)

It would be great if you join this tag, but I totally understand if you cannot take it right now!!

Come let’s enjoy some ancient philosophy!!

Lyrics Challenge – 3 Days Challenge Day 3

Greetings Everyone!!! This is my day three the last day for the Lyrics challenge Tisha tagged me for this.

Thanks so much, Tisha for tagging me for this challenge, it is really interesting and I am enjoying my favorite songs. Today I chose a prayer, which connects me to the God, the one which is in us. This also reminds me my school days it was a part of our daily assembly. Again I have not seen this movie or maybe I don’t really remember it. but

For next three days, I will try to share my three favorites from a different genre of songs.

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post one quote (song lyric) each day for three days.
  3. Nominate three people.

My third song lyrics go here:

This reminds me of my school days, it was part of our prayer for assembly.

Movie: Ankush
Music: Kuldeep Singh
Singer: Poornima

Itani shakti hamen dena daata
Man ka wishwaas kamajor ho na
Ham chale nek raste pe hamase
Bhulakar bhi koi bhul ho na

Dur ajnjaan ke ho andhere
Tu hamen jnjaan ki roshani de
Har buraai se bachate rahen ham
Jitani bhi de bhali jindagi de
Bair ho na kisi ka kisi se
Bhaawana man men badale ki ho na

Ham na sochen hamen kya mila hai
Ham ye soche kiya kya hai arpan
Ful khushiyon ke baante sabhi ko
Sab ka jiwan hi ban jaae madhuban
Apani karuna ka jal tu baha ke
Kar de paawan har ek man ka kona

With translation:

itni shakti hume dena data
man ka vishwas kamzor ho na
hum chalen nek raste pe hamse
bhoolkar bhi koi bhool ho na

give us so much strength, O Lord,
that the faith in our hearts never wavers.
may we walk the path of goodness
and we don’t make a mistake even accidentally.

door agyaan ke hon andhere
tu hamein gyaan ki roshni de
har buraai se bachte rahein hum
jitni bhi de bhali zindagi de
bair ho na kisi ka kisi se
bhaawana man mein badle ki ho na

let the darkness of ignorance be away,
give us the light of knowledge..
let us be far from all bad things,
however much life you give us, it be good.
may there be no ill will between people,
and there be no feeling of revenge.

hum chalein nek raste pe hamse
bhoolkar bhi koi bhool ho na
itni shakti humein dena data
man ka vishwas kamzor ho na

hum na sochein hamen kya mila hai
hum yeh sochen kiya kya hai arpan
phool khushiyon ke baanTein sabhi ko
sabka jeevan hi ban jaaye madhuban
apni karuna ka jal tu baha ke
kar de paavan har ik man ka kona

may we never think what we have got,
but what is it that we have contributed.
let us give the flowers of happiness to all,
and everyone’s lives become a garden of sweetness,
you flow the water of your compassion,
and make every corner of the heart pious.

hum chalein nek raste pe humse
bhoolkar bhi koi bhool ho na
itni shakti hame dena data
man ka vishwas kamzor ho na

Thanks so much, Tisha for tagging me for this challenge, it is really interesting and I am enjoying my favorite songs. I am struggling to find just one song, ahhh but I am taking one from many favorites. This one is also an old Hindi movie song, I have not seen the movie, but the song I love it. The song is written by Gulzaar, a poet who has written enormous songs, poetry and more. I wasn’t even born when this song was composed, hehehe but it is one of my favorite. I am sharing the song lyrics in Hindi, the song on youtube.com, Lata Mangeshkar’s voice and with the meaning line by line.

For next three days, I will try to share my three favorites from a different genre of songs.

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post one quote (song lyric) each day for three days.
  3. Nominate three people.

My second song lyrics go here:
Movie/album: Kinara (1977) Singers: Bhupinder Singh, Lata Mangeshkar Song Lyricists: Gulzar (Sampooran Singh Kalra) Music Composer: Rahul Dev Burman

Naam gum jaayegaa
Chehara ye badal jayegaa
Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe

Naam gum jaayegaa
Chehara ye badal jayegaa
Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe

Vaqt ke sitam kam hasi nahi
Aaj hai yahaan kal kahi nahi
Vaqt se bhare agar mil gaye kahi
Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe

Naam gum jaayegaa
Chehara ye badal jayegaa
Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe

Jo guzar gai kal ki baat thi
Umr to nahi ek aas thi
Raat kaa silaa agar phir mile kahi

Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe

Hoo naam gum jaayegaa
Chehara ye badal jayegaa
Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe

Din dhale jahaan raat paas ho
Zindagi ki raah unchi kar chalo
Yaad aaye gar kabhi ji udaas ho
Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe

Hoo naam gum jaayegaa
Chehara ye badal jayegaa
Meri aavaaz hi pahachaan hai
Gar yaad rahe.

Naam Gum Jayega, Chehra Ye Badal Jayega
My name will be lost, my face will change
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember
Naam Gum Jayega, Chehra Ye Badal Jayega
My name will be lost, my face will change
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember

Waqt Ke Sitam… Kam Haseen Nahi…
The atrocities done by time are also beautiful
Aaj Hai Yahaan… Kal Kahin Nahi…
I’m here today, tomorrow who knows where
Waqt Se Pare Agar… Mil Gaye Kahin…
If I meet You someplace, distant from time
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember
Ho… Naam Gum Jayega, Chehra Ye Badal Jayega
My name will be lost, my face will change
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember
Jo Guzar Gayi… Kal Ki Baat Thi…
What has passed, is the past
Ho… Umr To Nahi… Ek Aas Thi…
It wasn’t life, it was just some kind of hope
Raat Ka Sila Agar… Phir Mile Kahin…
If I find such a night again
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember
Naam Gum Jayega, Chehra Ye Badal Jayega
My name will be lost, my face will change
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember
Din Dhale Jahaan… Raat Paas Ho…
Where the day sets, the night lives near that place
Ho… Zindagi Ki Lau… Unchi Kar Chalo…
Always hold the flame/torch of life high and move forwards
Yaad Aaye Gar Kabhi… Ji Udaas Ho…
Whenever I think about it, my heart feels sad
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember
Naam Gum Jayega, Chehra Ye Badal Jayega
My name will be lost, my face will change
Meri Aawaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai, Gar Yaad Rahe
My voice is my identity, only if You can remember
