Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

Hoping is half-assed
just like hopping is one-legged.
Stand

with all you have.

Wedding Saving Passbook (Nice Story)

slated in mainstream at 2:22 pm

:Email forward. Original source unknown:

Monica married Nick this day. At the end of the wedding party, Monica’s mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook with Rs.1000 deposit amount.

Mother: ‘Monica, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage life. When there’s something happy and memorable happened in your new life, put some money in. Write down what it’s about next to the line. The more memorable the event is, the more money you can put in. I’ve done the first one for you today. Do the others with Nick.

When you look back after years, you can know how much happiness you’ve had.’ …

"Nonstop has been a victory for humanity"

slated in mainstream at 9:08 pm

Many have contributed to Nonstop at a level of personal sacrifice I personally find inspiring — granted, not as much as we’d have liked nor sufficient to guarantee Nonstop’s future, but at least enough to incubate an experiment in higher education in which we all ought to be able to take pride. In less than a year, I would absolutely say Nonstop has been a victory for humanity.

I’ll ask Wikipedia/Google.

Dad: you know, people are using Google more and more to answer all kind of big life questions now..
like, “what should I wear today?”, “what should I do this weekend?”
