You should not stop

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Saturday, 28 Mar '09

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.”
My Thoughts:
You always accept it as it is. They say it is the conventional truth. This was followed by your forefathers. And that’s the reason you don’t question.

Remember, if you don’t question, your doubts would not be solved. So be ready to challenge the conventional truth.

In which direction are you moving?

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Friday, 27 Mar '09


“The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving.”
My Thoughts:
On which platform you are standing is not of any importance. The train you take determines your destination.

Same is with your life, where you are – is not important, what you do is what determines your destiny.

Beware of Idealist

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Thursday, 26 Mar '09

Sensibly silly

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Wednesday, 25 Mar '09

“Silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way.”
My Thoughts:
You might have experienced this, when you tell a joke nobody laughs and when the same joke is told by a standup artist, that a great hit.

I have learned that not only the content matters, but also the presentation does. So the wrapper is as important as the product itself.

Endurable Pain

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Tuesday, 24 Mar '09


“Pain makes man think. Thought makes man wise. Wisdom makes life endurable.”
My Thoughts:
After reading this, does it seems to you that pain is good. Sometimes I think it is. After all, many a times, you learn new things only if you learn form your mistakes.

So the next time you have a painful experience, you know that there would be a happy ending if you have a thought on it.

Two reasons to die

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Monday, 23 Mar '09

“Men die for two diametrically opposed reasons: when they value what they seek to defend, and when there is nothing worth living for.”
My Thoughts:
There is some purpose of your valuable life – this is what I have been telling in my previous quotes. And I repeat this again.

When you die, people would remember your deeds, the cause you lived for. In this world, there are people who live for a cause and there are others who don’t have a cause. So which group you want to belong?

Change the world and have a good time

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Saturday, 21 Mar '09

“I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult.”
My Thoughts:
Today happens to be my Birthday! And I am writing this quote to remind myself that I have lost one year of my life to change the world and to enjoy life.

And doing both is a difficult job. But I would do all my best to bring change this world as I enjoy!

Know where to Hit

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Friday, 20 Mar '09

“Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.”
--Anonymous
My Thoughts:
Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed? The ship's owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.

Two of the ship's owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed! A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.

"What?!" the owners exclaimed. "He hardly did anything!"

So they wrote a note to the old man saying, "Please send us an itemized bill."

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer ........................ $ 2.00
Knowing where to tap ........................... $ 9998.00

Bricks they throw

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Thursday, 19 Mar '09

“A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him”
My Thoughts:
Don’t be depressed by what people say you or if they ill-treat you. These are like bricks that they throw at you.

You have to make your building of success by these bricks and then show these people your capabilities!

Change yourself

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Wednesday, 18 Mar '09

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
My Thoughts:
The story goes like this…..once there was a King; he once went for a tour of his kingdom. On his way walking, his foot was hurt by a thorn. Soon he ordered his minister to cover every inch of his kingdom with velvet so that no thorn can hurt him.

But then there was a wise minister who said that “My Lord, why don’t you wear Shoes?” We all behave like the king, just wanting to change the world at first thought. But if you think deeply, you would find that changing oneself is more effective!

Never got that

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Tuesday, 17 Mar '09

“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.”
My Thoughts:
As I had said yesterday, about my appraisal discussion……I tried in all verbal ways to convince my boss that I deserve a better rating but that of course didn’t work.

Then I occurred to me, the words of my Prof. Anthony. He said that teachers don’t give marks to students because they never got those marks. Same applies here, my jerk boss never got a good rating….and the story goes……

Point of View

Quote & Thought for the Day -- Monday, 16 Mar '09

“The horizon of many people is a circle with a radius of zero. They call this their point of view”
My Thoughts:
Yesterday, yes on Sunday, I was having discussion with my Boss for my appraisal. And I got a feel of this, how someone can be so dumb to have no acknowledgement of someone’s work and say that this is in my point of view.

They cannot see beyond the horizon and don’t want to face the realities and then they say that’s their point of view.
