या झोपडीत माझ्या - संत तुकडोजी महाराज

राजास जी महाली, सौख्ये कधी मिळाली
ती सर्व प्राप्त झाली, या झोपडीत माझ्या ॥१॥

भूमीवरी पडावे, ताऱ्यांकडे पहावे
प्रभुनाम नित्य गावे, या झोपडीत माझ्या ॥२॥

पहारे आणि तिजोऱ्या, त्यातूनी होती चोऱ्या
दारास नाही दोऱ्या, या झोपडीत माझ्या ॥३॥

जाता तया महाला, ‘मज्जाव’ शब्द आला
भिती न यावयाला, या झोपडीत माझ्या ॥४॥

महाली मऊ बिछाने, कंदील शामदाने
आम्हा जमीन माने, या झोपडीत माझ्या ॥५॥

येता तरी सुखे या, जाता तरी सुखे जा
कोणावरी न बोजा, या झोपडीत माझ्या ॥६॥


Chanakya Quotes

  • Learn from the mistakes of others...you can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
  • A good wife is one who serves her husband in the morning like a mother does, loves him in the day like a sister does and pleases him like a prostitute in the night.
  • Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.

Do you remember

Do you remember, dear, the days so long ago when we were at school, and the chemistry lab where you and I worked over messy experiments and grew to know each other. Your family had just moved to our town; I learnt that your father came from a distinguished family and was a government official. My father was dead, and I lived with my mother in an unfashionable street. We let half our house, and my mother did fancy sewing for the well-to-do people in town. She did it proudly, with her head held high, but you did not know that. All you knew was that I was a dressmaker's son.


Man's best friend

I want my children to have a dog
Or may be two or three
They'll learn from them more easily
Than they will learn from me.

A dog will teach them how to love,
And have no grudge or hate
I'm not so good at that myself
But a dog will do it straight

I want my children to have a dog,
To be their pal and friend
So they may learn that friendship
Is faithful to the end.

There never yet has been a dog
That learned to double cross
Nor catered to you when you won
Then dropped you when you lost.
