Sensitive Words! (Celebrating the 2500th Year of the Written Word)

Few thoughts to share..the mommy to be whose baby shower pictures I clicked has a baby girl !! So it's pink all the way!!! Congratulations to the new parents.

I read somewhere and firmly believe ,You should choose your words..and your actions carefully,......they have the power to make you as well as destroy you..they have the power to build a relationship and destroy it too.....well! that was me ...getting philosophical .. am sure many of you would be waiting for the weekly post by my dear Grandpa..so without further delay ...find below , what he has to say this week : )....

Diogenes , the cynic Greek philosopher(350 BC),a pupil of Socrates, is widely remembered for his famous search for an honest man, conducted in broad daylight with a lighted lantern.
Once a young man saw him begging alms from a stone statue .He asked him“Why are you begging from a statue? Would it give alms to you?
Diogenes replied "I am begging from the statue to practise forbearance in case any one refuses to give alms to me"

And here's some curry for the Soul :)

1.Be content to seem what really you are.....Marcus Aurelius
2.It is not the mountains we conquer but ourselves....Edmund Hillary
3.People are like stained glass windows.They sparkle and shine when the Sun is out but when darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
4.After all the hullabaloo,it is jocular to find that "nuclear" is only an anagram of "unclear"
