A man whose nick name was 'A Walking Encyclopedia' met his match quite unexpectedly, in a party!

The W.E (Walking Encyclopedia) was showing off the width, depth, breadth and volume of his vast knowledge to the adoring circle of friends.

(They had no choice but to grin and bear it. Well, that is another story and beside the point here.)

A very simple looking man-nothing in comparison to the W.E. in any respect- told him,"Sir! between us we know everything that needs to be known!"

The W.E gave a quizzical and queer look at the unimpressive speaker of these words. The man continued,

"You seem to know everything except that you are a bore! I know that you are a bore. So between us we know everything that needs to be known under the Sun!"

Moral of the story...
The is a David for every Goliath in God's creation!

A well written letter may bring you a new friends,

collect money for you, help you to achieve your desires;

but a poor one will cost you everything you value most.


'life is like that!'

if we accept it like that then there are no problems.

When we do not accept it starts a sries of problems.

Life is full of problems! As long as we are able to identify them and also find

suitable solutions, they won't remain as problems any more!

Life is like that :)!

The best reason to keep your chin up in trouble

is that it keeps the mouth shut.

What people do and what they think

is never stamped on their smiling faces!

Pleasures are greatest in anticipation.

Just remember that this is true of troubles also.

The best argument is one which

seems to be merely an explanation.

Parents spend the first part of a child's life in getting it to walk and talk

and the rest of the childhood in getting it to keep still and shut up.

There are no more disturbing emergencies,

than those which result from one's own actions.

The wise do not merely drain away old grudges;

They constantly refill the pool of their lives,

with fresh dreams and enthusiasm.

A little learning is not a dangerous thing for one,

who does not mistake it for a great deal.

He who does not trust others is himself not trustworthy.

Humanity and Humility.

Infinity is undefined just as zero is, but the similarity ends there. Zero is undefined

in itself-but not in the magnificent manner of Infinity but in the most

contrastingly pathetic manner!

Zero means naught/ nothing! It is emptiness, soonyam, vacant, vacuum, the

lowest point of reality.

The Laws governing zero are equally pathetic too!

1. o + o = o.

2. o - o = o.

3. o x o = o.

4. o / o = o.

Whether you add, subtract, multiply or divide two zeroes they still remain a zero!

If zero must have an existence of its own, a value attached to it, it should first

have the good sense and humility to attach itself, behind the number 1 or one of

its multiples. If it tries to stand in front of the 1 arrogantly as 01, it will get promptly

dropped down like a hot-potato!

But if it adds itself behind the 1 as 10, 100, 1000, 10000, etc it gains value by

enhancing the value of 1.

Every Jeevaathmaa is a ZERO by itself! It will get value (Sat, Chit and

Anandham) only by associating with 1 the Paramaathmaa.

Left by itself...it had been , it is and it will be a ZERO and nothing more.

strangely the English word Soonyam also contains the symbol oo of

Infinity but does not not add the glory of oo to the 0!

The outstanding feature of a garrulous bore

is his complete unawareness of that fact.

He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes.

He who does not ask remains a fool for ever.

Dear Mr. Alwan,

I could FEEL the truth in the incident related by you in detail!

Is there a personal touch in it?

Human mind is never satisfied.

Those who are forced to walk, wish to possess at least a bicycle.

Those who ride bicycles wish for a motor bike/ scooter.

Those who possess scooters wish for a car.

Those who have ordinary cars covet for A.C.cars.

Nothing wrong in being ambitious. That is what makes man progress in

life. But when the wishes become greed and the motto becomes

'at any cost'... troubles start brewing! :spider:

with warm regards,

Nearly every married man you come across knows

how to govern his wife. Only she would not let him! :high5:

A woman usually forgets her husband's 'past',

if he comes home to her with a 'present'

and tall promises for the 'future'! :drama:

The larger the island of knowledge,

the longer the shore of wonders.

It takes all kinds of people to make the world.

But at times I wonder whether the proportion is correct!
