Attalus, you’re the butt of a good joke:
‘His toga’s filthy, but he is clean- clean broke.'( from the fourth book)

‘Address me,’you insist, ‘as Long,’
Longbottom. The contraction is wrong.
Surely you wouldn’t make the same
Mistake if Cockburn were your name? ( from the sixth book)

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

Life is such a wonderful experience that one often misses it in the anticipation of what is to follow.

*A child who cannot wait to snap his ties to his mother’s apron strings will soon find he has to pick up the pieces himself; and also make good of the damage.

*Success by worldly standards has been dinned onto you. You want to prove your parents that you are better than they, only to find they are not there when you succeed.

*Success that you run after sometimes is such you may win too soon. If you don’t follow it with much more spectacular you are a has been. Imagine not yet thirty something and a has been. Who can live down that?

*Think of success that comes so late: OK you may have bitten off much more than you could chew. But after lifelong struggle you have no single tooth left and no stomach either to digest it all.

*Suppose you achieve success. You paid your price for it in sweat and tears. Well and good. Those friends who cushioned you in your toil have all become your sidekicks: of course they get a kick out of your winnings. You thought success was some kind of life annuity only to find it has been spread all too thin to satisfy any.

*You went through life with blinkers on and you had one single aim. But when you are,in the end let to pasture you can only see what you missed and you can do nothing about it.

Second Quote

On Epigram ©

An epigram in its brevity compresses aspects of life that is incompressible. Epigram is set in certain sequence of words of what life is, chaotic and carrying several nodes of ideas. Epigram at its best hits on the nail of a complex set of ideas. Nothing more.

An action that is appropriate to time and place is an epigram set purely on a moral plane.

An epigram may not prove right at all times; neither would an action in another set of circumstances.
