Quotable Quotes Part II

Visalakshi Ramani

Well-known member
A for Apoplexy.

B for Bangra dance

C for Cat's Paw

D for Dog Fight

E for Eccentricity

F for a Fit of Frenzy...

This list can go on till Z!

But it is sure to cause

A and B in some persons

who will turn to C and D

due to their E and F.

My aim is to tell people

to keep away from these

and not dive headlong

into any of these dangers.

If one out of N persons turns

green/ red/ blue every time

he sees my name or my post

it is his very own problem...

neither mine....nor yours!

Why should I refuse to meet the (N-1) others

who wish to meet me, read me and remember me?

Quotable Quotes Part II

is launched so that at least

a few people - even if not all

will be benefit from these.

Usually I welcome everyone

with joined palms to enter

the thread and participate.

But I too have become wiser.

Once bitten twice shy! Right?

This thread is devoted exclusively

to the words of wisdom of the

well known people and not

every Tom, Dick and Harry or

every Amar, Akbar and Antony or

every Appu, Kuppu and Chuppu!

I hope the message is clear enough.

So NO prattle & rattle, no craps & scraps.

No trolling, drooling or spoiling the thread.

While this thread is not a private property

nor is it a No-man's-land (porampokku)

to dump personal grudge and garbage.

Thank you anticipating your cooperation!

Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there more quickly

True buddies are said to be

Dear Tmt VR

" Thank God, that I am an atheist ! ".

Or should it be :

" Just look at all these religious morons. I wonder what it would like to be one of them. God Forbid " ?

Thank God

Dear friends!
Thank you for your valuable contributions to this thread.
Actually I must click a LIKE for each of your posts.
Instead of it I am verbally stating it here. :)
Life is too short to commit all possible mistakes
by ourselves and learn from the costly school of experience.
That is where these words of wisdom help us to learn
from the experiences of the others who were also good enough
to record them for the future generations.
Welcoming more useful posts from you,

P.S. Everyone except A.M ji has given the author of the quote.
Since two versions are presented, I guess it is his own quote.
So this will invite prattle about everything under the sun.
Shall we stick to the authentic quotes by famous personalities please?

A for Apoplexy = blowing a fuse in human body.

B for Bangra dance = the most robust, noisy and expressive form of Indian dance - second only to kathakali.

C for Cat's Paw = a person used by another to do dangerous, distasteful, or unlawful work;

dupe: from the tale of the monkey who used the cat's foot to rake the chestnuts out of the fire.

D for Dog Fight = A dogfight, or dog fight, is a form of aerial combat between fighter air crafts.

May be I ought to have given these foot notes yesterday itself! :)
