| Quotes to Chew on|
"The only way you can do more things in life is
to do them" -- my wife, this morning (as I complained to her that we are too busy)
"Ultimately, Only the Truth Prevails" -- I find this quote from Upanishad (apprx 1400 B.C), used as India's byline, very profound.
Since the world still has a lot of falsehood and injustice, one must consider after-life for this quote to make sense.
The emphasis, as I see, is both on the Ultimate as well as on Truth.
"Only Bill Clinton can distract the attention from a sex scandal
by making another sex scandal!" -- Jay Leno in 1999. I remember this often because
these days on television,
they are interrupting one advertisement with yet another advertisement! Have you noticed?!
Who baby-sits the baby-sitter's children?
Those in USA won't find this amusing, but cultures like Indian, fragmented by class and
status structures, will.
I've known a friend who babysat the children of a doctor-couple for many
years. Now the friend has a child, and the doctors are baby-sitting so
that the baby-sitter can take a vacation.
