Thought provoking QuotesOctober 20, 2008
There are certain quotations which do not advice. They do not preach. They are not judgmental. They don’t claim that they are the Truth. But still you would have to think about each of them at least twice. The wisdom ingrained in them is sometimes not visible openly. That’s why I have categorized them as thought provoking. I have been getting the following quotes from a friend through email (The subject is Good Morning, though and with a neat picture). Some of them have indeed made my day, not just the morning. Have a look at a few selected ones that I have liked over the years.
“The true mystery of the world is the visible; not the invisible”
“Money is a very excellent servant; but a terrible master”
“An angry man is again angry with himself when he returns to reason”
“Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward. They may be beaten but they may start a winning game”
“Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind”
“Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning”
“It’s not what you are called, but what you answer to”
“Putting off an easy thing makes it hard”
“Having enemies’ means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life”
“Failure is not falling down; but staying down”
“By learning to obey, you will know how to command”
“To be content with a little is hard; to be content with much is impossible”
“If you wish to travel far and fast, try traveling light, taking off all your burdens”
“LUCK….. stands for Labouring Under Correct Knowledge”
“Intellectuals solve problems. Geniuses prevent them”
“The future will be exactly like the past; only far more expensive”
“Hardwork has a future pay-off; Laziness pays-off now”
And how about this one to close: “Cheer up, the worst is yet to come” !!
PS: I’ll try to post more such quotes, but at irregular intervals. But the worst is yet to come – so cheer up people 🙂
