Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantmentit
is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

The Naked Door

As I stood before this naked door, it shouted out its soul to me…I felt lost and lonely…“Our pains are caused by our wrong viewpoints toward things. The false self throws up an imaginary picture of how it insists things should be. And every time this ‘should be' clashes with what actually happens, we react painfully. The problem is not what actually happens, but our demands that something else should happen…”

Hello everyone! My name is Gulzar Junaid, aged 23. I’m animator, cartoonist, photographer and a poet.
I will be posting some of my sketches n model sheets here…hope you all like them…
Art for me is not limited only in terms of visual form format. Art for me is about communication, getting across what I deeply feel… learning to know oneself, maybe through visual or verbal form or pattern. It is the mixture of experiencing, exploring, imagining, interpreting, innovating, experimenting, preplanning, visualizing, conceptualizing, illustrating, and executing…
