Great Words

>> Sunday, August 24, 2008

I have been tagged by two very special people from Blogville…

Thomas, the face which rules “Indians most wanted (character assassin)” charts in the blog world. His skills are known far and wide. No one dares to cross his path, for then the consequences are dangerous. I hope this description doesn’t make me one of his victims too …

And then by Neena. Her lucid writings never fail to touch a chord. She takes you down memory lane each time she pens a few lines.

Tag Rules

Jot down 5 of your favorite quotes from the various books you’ve read. If you don’t have the books with you now, googling (Wikiquotes and the like) can be used to find them. Tag five people and acknowledge the person who tagged you. ( okay I just copied the rules verbatim Thomas !!)

1) "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference." --Robert Frost

My all time favorite quote. It describes the person I am and strive to be …

2) Winning is most important. Everything is consequence of that -- Ayrton Senna

I love Formula 1. The speed is exhilarating and so are the races … the man I admire the most is Ayrton Senna. He lived in the fast lane in the literal sense!!
He always said God is my co-driver and I believe that’s true for each of us.

3) I'd rather be hated for who I am than be loved for who I’m not. Wanting to be someone else is waste of who you are ... Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain isn’t a role model, but somewhere these words ring so true.

4) "A true friend is someone who knows there's something wrong even when you have the biggest smile on your face."

Don’t know where I read this quote, but had it written down. So true about friends, they know when things are genuine and when the smile is plastic and your broken inside.

5) “People think it must be fun to be a super genius, but they don't realize how hard it is to put up with all the idiots in the world.”--Calvin

I find my life is a lot easier the lower I keep everyone's expectations. – Calvin

Calvin and Hobbes, my stress buster. When the going gets tough, nothing motivates more than a simple comic strip.

I end this tag with a quote from a book, “A Thousand Splendid Suns”, one of the few books which made me value each gift I have. The value of the freedom I enjoy so unabashedly.
. . . she was leaving the world as a woman who had loved and been loved back. She was leaving it as a friend, a companion, a guardian. A mother. A person of consequence at last. (Hope I can leave the world just like that)

I tag Keshi , Mayz , Solitaire , Macadamia the nut, Karthik.

**3) I'd rather be hated for who I am than be loved for who I’m not. Wanting to be someone else is waste of who you are ... Kurt Cobain

Neena Padayatty August 25, 2008 at 10:11 AM  

When God's the co-driver,victory isn't necessarily coming first,it's more of enjoying the ride.(just my thought).:-)

find my life is a lot easier the lower I keep everyone's expectations. – Calvin


I love this quote..

Solitaire August 25, 2008 at 12:20 PM  

Haay la! Hard tag!

I love the one by Frost. I think its about my life!!

Tom August 25, 2008 at 12:40 PM  

Frost is my fav poet, this one and the "miles to go befoe i sleep" one is too good. And I've heard the 3rd quote somewhere, but din know it was Kurt Cobain's. You know what Cobain's suicide letter said - "It's better to burn out than to fade away". And, thanks for doing the tag!

mayz August 25, 2008 at 1:50 PM  

yeh toh bahut mushkil tag hai :((

Karthik August 25, 2008 at 2:01 PM  

I think most of the people who do this tag will have a quote by Frost :-)

Deepti August 29, 2008 at 10:46 AM

Deepti August 29, 2008 at 11:00 AM  

@Tom: cobain did have some profound thoughts though he was all screwed up in the head :)

Deepti August 29, 2008 at 11:01 AM  

@Mayz: Do it when you have lotsa time .. looking forward to see you do it :)

Deepti August 29, 2008 at 11:02 AM  

@Karthik : Frost is a great thinker no doubt at all :)
