HONEST WORK: All honest work is good work; it is capable of leading to self-dev elopement, provided the doer seeks to discover the inherent lessons and makes the most of the potentialities for such growth. – Paramahansa Yogananda

LET THEM: Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let GOD deal with the things they do, because hate in your heart will consume you too. – Will Smith

KAMADHENU: Every culture has a desire fulfilling instrument. Europe evolved the wishing well that grants spoken wishes. The Chinese have a tree that confers wishes and the Budhists, a jade ring. Hindus seek blessings from Kamadhenu – the wish fulfilling cow. – ‘Hinduism Today’

HOLISTIC HABITS: He that in his studies wholly applies himself to labor and exercise, and neglects meditation , loses his time; and he that only applies himself to meditation, and neglects labor and exercise , only wanders and loses himself. – Confucious

MIND AND BODY: Happily we are learning that the mind has to do with the misdeeds of the body, and that there are no more therapeutic agents than cheerfulness, happiness and hope. – Olive T Miller

The Liberian Registry has reached a historic milestone with the registration of its 4,000th vessel – the 50,000 dwt chemical / product tanker newbuilding High Trust, owned by d’Amico Tankers Limited, Dublin (d’Amico International Shipping S.A. group).

Scott Bergeron, CEO of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the US-based manager of the Liberian Registry, says, “The Liberian-registered fleet continues to grow at a rapid pace with the planned addition of quality tonnage under quality ownership and management. The High Trust is an appropriate name for our 4,000th vessel, since it symbolises the ongoing faith shown in the Liberian flag by the international shipping community.

“Size may not be everything. But ship registries which continue to build on their market share in a tightly regulated and safety-conscious sector by adding quality tonnage are clearly providing the service and expertise which today’s shipping industry demands.”

The Liberian Registry is one of the world’s largest and most active shipping registers, and has long been considered the world’s most technologically advanced maritime administration. It has a long-established track record of combining the highest standards of safety for vessels and crews with the highest levels of responsive service to owners. Moreover, it has a welldeserved reputation for supporting international legislation designed to maintain and improve the safety and effectiveness of the shipping industry and protection of the marine environment.
