two lessons i learnt this week:

lesson no. 1

It isn’t what we can do
That creates an impression.
It is what we can’t do
That does the job.

half-full or half-empty?

lesson no. 2

We spend most of our time
Thinking of what we could have done
Instead of what we actually have done.


or well he might have said these

These are my top 10 quotes from one of my favourite writers, George Orwell. If there are mis-quotes, please notify me.

• Four legs good, two legs bad.

• At 50, everyone has the face he deserves.

• War is war. The only good human being is a dead one.

• The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.

• All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

• During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

• There are some ideas so wrong that only a very intelligent person could believe in them.

• If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

• Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.

• Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals.
