‘A honest man is not made perfect overnight. His honesty is rigorously cultivated from tender age not as matter of approval from others but in his proper estimation of his own worth. Show me a man who despises his fellow men and I know for certain he has in himself something to despise him for. I will think twice before I trust him with my goods.’

A quote I wrote as a comment on a friend’s profile:
‘When I thought I should blow my top for all the injuries done to me I filed it under ‘friend’ and I can’t remember anymore what it was’
This is my own quote. Hi, Murray look what you as a friend inspired me! It is nice to have friends who raise you a notch higher, as always

A man who weeps today over yesterdays will find it necessary to repeat the same tomorrow.

170.
Instant food and instant nirvana cannot put body and soul together for long.

171.
A prophet of doom or a soap box orator is not as dangerous as pleasure peddlers who come in all guises ranging from God-man to pimps. Pleasure is the bait that gets most of men hooked.

‘Transfer factor’ is a protein which recognize a disease by activating body’s immune system so that it will not catch it a second time. It is possible to inject immunity from one person to another. One might even go as far as to say that the key to one’s well-being depends upon this factor. Love is the ‘transfer factor’ that keeps relationships from breaking up.

All knowledge arises from doubt. So is referral practice.

Vanity paints holograph of ourselves in the mirror.

How happy can one be? How wretched may one feel? There is no scale by which one may plumb the depth except that when one is happy it suffuses the body entirely with its warmth; similarly with misery. A letter from a long absent friend makes one happy while the first cuckoo call with the coming of spring makes another happy beyond belief. How we respond to our world is not in proportion to the external causes themselves.
There is a disconnect between me and my world in terms of my emotional outflow.

Reasoning faculties of my brain may rely on set aspects of my physiology but how I feel or affects my body belong entirely to another realm. Smile of a baby has made me happy for no particular reason that I could think of. Did I also become one for that briefest moment or is it that my experience as an infant responded to its smile? I dare say thinking is not the key but in the manner we are connected to the visible and invisible aspects of our existence ought to explain the mystery.
How healing of the body takes place in one by faith and with surgery in another may owe to this disconnect.

176.
To deflate a stuffed shirt it does not require anything more than a tickle in the funny bone.

177.
Tyrants fear the keen shaft of wit more than the grape shot of a cannon.

178.
A majority could be crushed by the Press, as much as it lets an individual off the hook by silence.

In my kindergarten days I was taught to share what I have got with others. In the corporate world I find just the opposite. One need only look at the way AIG top brass have, in 2008, given bonus themselves.

‘ ‘Evil pays back in kind;and good is its own reward.’so said my father in my youth but now older and wiser with life experience I think evil and good are two parallel lines as made out by moralists of old. Mankind has them overstepped so often that there is a blur between the lines. He who condemns evil may look well he hasn’t got his foot on the wrong side’.

“There is only one area where no one is considered a failure: death.

Unfortunately lessons learnt in life make some cheat here as well. Suicide it is called”.
