We grow old...

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. ~Samuel Ullman

Proud of him....

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him. ~Abraham Lincoln

I Wish...

As I was walking up the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
I wish, I wish he'd go away.
~Hugh Mearns

Where we started....

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
~T.S. Eliot, 1943

I wonder if Eve could....

I wonder if Eve could write letters in Paradise! But, poor Eve, she had no one to write to - no one to whom to tell what Eden was, no beloved child to whom her love traveled through any or all space. Poor Eve! ~Catharine M. Sedgwick

Breaks the heart....

Sticks and stones are hard on bones
Aimed with angry art,
Words can sting like anything
But silence breaks the heart.
~Phyllis McGinley, "Ballade of Lost Objects," 1954

Something absolutely new....

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

Hit in the head ...

A sport where the players actually enjoy getting hit in the head ...

Sad truth in life...

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Hate leaves...

Hate leaves ugly scars, love leaves beautiful ones. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966.

Like a Queen...

How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon
From the slow opening curtains of the clouds
Walking in beauty to her midnight throne!~George Croly, Diana

Effort...

The one thing that matters is the effort. It continues, whereas the end to be attained is but an illusion of the climber, as he fares on and on from crest to crest; and once the goal is reached it has no meaning. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Wisdom of the Sands, translated from French by Stuart Gilbert

In Youth...

In youth we learn; in age we understand. ~Marie Ebner-Eschenbach

In Love with a Dimple...

Many a man in love with a dimple makes the mistake of marrying the whole girl. ~Stephen Leacock, Literary Lapses, 1910

March days....

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

In every man's heart there is a secret nerve that answers to the vibrations of beauty. ~Christopher Morley

The Light....

Into my heart's night
Along a narrow way
I groped; and lo! the light,
An infinite land of day.
~Rubaiyat of Rumi

My daughter turns two today....!!!

Welcome to the "terrible Twos".....wish me good luck...!!!

My daughter's first Birthday...

My daughter "Niharika" on her first birthday.
"Niharika" means a cluster of flowers and it also means - a girl who is admired the most.

My newborn baby......

My newborn baby on 10th March 2007...

Whenever I held my newborn baby in my arms, I used to think that what I said and did to him could have an influence not only on him but on all whom he met, not only for a day or a month or a year, but for all eternity - a very challenging and exciting thought for a mother. ~Rose Kennedy

Inner Light....

Someday perhaps the inner light will shine forth from us, and then we'll need no other light. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sunday, March 8, 2009

Dark.........

An age is called "dark," not because the light fails to shine but because people refuse to see it. ~James Michener

As none can see......

As none can see the wind but in its effects on the trees, neither can we see the emotions but in their effects on the face and body. ~Nathaniel LeTonnerre, translated

In your direction......

My thoughts are free to go anywhere, but it's surprising how often they head in your direction. ~Author Unknown

Each day too short.....

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see. ~John Burroughs

Book...

I suppose every old scholar has had the experience of reading something in a book which was significant to him, but which he could never find again. Sure he is that he read it there, but no one else ever read it, nor can he find it again, though he buy the book and ransack every page. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Two at a time...

A man's health can be judged by which he takes two at a time - pills or stairs. ~Joan Welsh

Beauty without strangeness....

I don't like standard beauty - there is no beauty without strangeness. ~Karl Lagerfeld
