Don't let anyone stop you from being who you really are... You are the way you are for a purpose - fulfill your destiny!

Learn every day and live in present

Learn from the past, plan for the future and live in the now.

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." - Albert Einstein

Look for the positive things in life; they are everywhere.

Nothing is impossible if you really set your mind to it, be open to feedback and learning, always keep your promises, be honest with people.

You'll never regret what you do; but you might regret what you don't.

Live every moment of your life as if it were your last

Satisfaction comes from your efforts at overcoming your shortcomings and adversity, and earning dignity.

Nothing lasts forever.
keep it in mind and love..!

Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you have to express it.

Everyone has something to teach you if you will be quiet long enough to hear it.

Pay attention to your senses and you will gain wisdom, face your fears and you will gain courage, follow your curiosity and you will gain understanding, and when you leave let the things you touch be better for your having been there.

Treasure every moment; your time is the most non-renewable resource, use it to do some good and make a difference.

When you start to listen to yourself and what your body is telling you, you can then change your world and the world around you.

The difference between dream and reality is ACTION!

Don't chase money. Chase great ideas, and the money will follow as a natural byproduct of the pursuit.

“A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The only thing that is permanent or constant, is Change. So, keep challenging yourself and stepping out of your comfort zone.

Never quit learning, loving, laughing and listening!

Listen to your inner voice... it comes from your child soul.

Pain is the challenges we face, the scars from it are what we have learned and the accomplishments we have made.

Pursue your passions, make new friends everyday

You only get out of life, what you are willing to put into it.

Think about how your actions will affect
others, no matter if it is in the work place
or in your personal life.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

When you have questions or are feeling stuck, check in with your heart; it is where your guidance and inspiration lie, and living from it brings great joy!

Dance as though no one is watching,
Love as though you've never been hurt before,
sing, as though no one can hear you,
work, as though you don't need the money,
live as though heaven is on earth.

It doesn't matter what people think about you, just be yourself and never give up!

Never be afraid to become the person you know you can be.

"Come from the heart. Even if things don't turn out quite how you had hoped or expected, you will have been yourself and you will be happy."

Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your final altitude

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today"

The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve, but a reality to experience.

Being successful isn’t just about what you make happen for yourself, it’s about what you make happen for others.

Enjoy the journey of discovery that is life, and be a friend to all you meet along the way.

Control your emotions, keep learning from life experieces, do not hurt any one by your words or actions.


Those people in your life that you count on the most will probably betray you while those from whom you expect the least will often surprise and support you throughout your life.


Thanks to you all. Anh Tho

Vietnamese Classical Literature - 19th Century

Vietnam Classical Literature is not known to the outside world as Chinese Literature. For the younger generation, the study of Vietnamese literature seem to fade away, leaving place to contemporary authors on topics on modern existentialism. In my attempt to "come back to source", I have started a collection of books on Vietnam, and classify them under various topics such as Culture, History, Vietnam War, Politics, Biographies, Contemporary Vietnam, International Relations, Doing Business in Vietnam, Reference and Languages, Zen Buddhism, Philosophy, Art and Literature. 

Here is a short picture of the literary world under the last dynasty of Vietnam: the Nguyen. 

Indeed, the 19th Century was a flourishing century for literature and the arts in Vietnam. It opened up with the Kim Vân Kiều  by Nguyễn Du (1765-1820) and closed with the anonymous Song of True Patriotism (Chính Khí Ca :1900). 

Three outstanding talents, Nguyen Du, Mdm Ho Xuan Huong and Nguyen Dinh Chieu contri…
