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.
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.
