Thought for the day

The faith you have in others is a reflection of the faith you have in yourself.

Life may have a trash bin, but there's no "Delete Forever" option. Be careful about what you invite/accept into your life. Someday, it might define you.

All roads lead to happiness; we just don't know where to stop.

I differ. Happiness doesnt need a road. Happiness is everywhere - like air. you just have to see it, feel it.

Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.

@s.H.a.S.h.I
That human tendency is also the impetus for progress . What I meant to say in #1 is that we should find some time to "Stand and stare"

Happiness is in the traveling. Not always in reaching.

@tintin
Agreed. And like air too, it is highly under-rated. We don't understand its importance until there is a dearth of it and we are suffocating.

Bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug ..... now you do the debugging pal :D

Aparna Kar said...

@arun
Yes.

@candid
I'd call it selective memory. Some things you need to remember. Or else you'll be a sucker for sadness and with no cure for that :D

I would say, life many a times deletes without an "Are You Sure?" warning (to use your analogy). So, be sure what you attempt to delete on an impulse!

Happened upon your blog today. BTW, for some reason, the Wikimapia pics in the post below don't load.

And I love the captions on your slide-show... Tomb Raider indeed!

Hey ,
Long time..
This one is my favoritte..

"Absolute faith corrupts as absolute power".

Aparna Kar said...

@the_new_cloud
Hey! That's one of my favorites too. Eric Hoffner I guess. There's another of his on power that I like: Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many.
But nowadays, I am trying to turn my faith more inwards than letting it rush to an external source to replenish itself, so it's more on the line of Andre Gide's thoughts I am following here :Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself - and thus make yourself indispensable.

Aparna Kar said...

@Shantanu
Well, thanks for dropping by. You got a great page there. I'm blogrolling you.
Btw, there's no element called "regret" in my life. Life is too short for that. No one wants to "settle" for anyone/ anything . We all want the best for ourselves. And for that, if I have to streamline my thoughts, prune my desires and discipline myself to concentrate my efforts on only my immediate objective, then I will. Redundant ideas/emotions are like junk in your attic. You will only get lost in the dust and find the thing you truly seek at the end.

Aparna Kar said...

Or maybe.. Never

@arun
Time to upgrade your system. :P
It's obsolete now.

Heyyy! I'm coming to your blog after a long time and great to see you've crossed seven seas and landed just one state away from where I am!! I work in Rhode Island, and you're in Boston! :) Are you at Boston University? Great place I've heard! Congrats, awesome work and best of luck for the "rest of your life"! :)) Student life in the US is really awesome, as I've seen with the Brown students in Providence.. so enjoy, I'm sure you'll have a great time!

Aparna Kar said...

@Still searching
Oh yes. I like the lifestyle out here. You got to do everything yourself and that keeps you so busy that you get time to do ONLY the things that are important to you. This makes life simple and smooth if you ask me.
I'm pursuing my MBA from UMASS, not BU. The only univ I applied to :P.
The faculty and peer group is very supportive out here. Maybe I'll write a post on my last week soon- maybe today. I'm planning to go to Galleria in the afternoon with a friend though... retail therapy.. it always works :D
