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.
