Fortune favors the bold.

Don't say things! What you are stands over you all the while and
thunders so that I can not hear what you say to the contrary.

Cowards die many times before their deaths.
The valiant never taste of death but once.

Evil is wrought by want of thought
as well as by want of heart.

Everyone wants to live at the expense of the State.

They forget that the State lives at the expense of everyone.

True stories don't always have happy endings.

There is always a danger for those who are afraid of it.

Some people find faults -
as if they were buried treasures!

A good scare is worth more to a man,
than a good advice!

A second marriage is the best example of
the triumph of Hope over Experience!

Be true to yourself and you can never be false to anyone.

Be Cheerful and fear nothing.

Little drops make the mighty ocean.

Little acts of kindness make the life worth living.

What would 115 degree F feel like???
Even at 100 degree F the wind creates a feverish feeling!
And the netas still do not want to believe in Climate change! :(

Nothing and nobody is really insignificant or unnecessary in God's creation!

God is a great economist. He does not waste either the material or His time or

the available space by creating unwanted beings!

There are two universal Laws called 'The Law of conservation of Mass' and
'The law of conservation of Energy.'

We can neither increase nor decrease the total mass of things in the universe.
Neither can we increase nor decrease the total energy in the universe.

All we can do is to transform them from one form to another - sometimes in
reversible actions and at other times in irreversible reactions.

The moment we realize this absolute truth, we are qualified to become seekers of true knowledge. :
Another truth is that the 'sum total of mass and energy also remains unchanged!'

That is the Poornam- which we can never destroy, nor create or alter! Great isn't it? :)

In spite of all these established facts, some people still doubt in the existence of the Supreme Power we have named as God! :(

Make yourself indispensable,
and you will move up.

Behave as though you were indispensable,
and you will move out.

Talk less and work more.
You are sure to make yourself indispensable.

If you hold on to your faith even in total darkness,

you will the Sunshine through your tears.

God makes us more perfect through sufferings.

It is the alternate heating and cooling that

tempers the glass and makes it stronger.

A really good letter, if you read it aloud,
will not sound like a letter at all!

A good letter pleases him that writes
and him that receives.

A well written letter will be
a heart to heart talk between
the writer and the receiver.

I remember my dad used to read all my letters before posting - when I was still Miss. Raman.
It was not for censoring or spying but he loved to read my writing - even if it were a mere post card!

Imagine what will happen if a restless monkey was made to drink wine to its eyebrows
and which got stung by a black scorpion and which was handed a double edged sword
and which was let loose on a busy street filled with people of all ages.....
Don't stretch your imagination too much!
You may witness such a scene too soon!

பலநாள் திருடன் ஒருநாள் அகப்படுவான்.
பலநாள் தேடிய பதில் ஒருநாள் கிடைக்கும்!

மாமனார், நாத்தனார், கொழுந்தனார் என்று எல்லா
உறவுகளின் பெயர்களும் 'னார்' என்று முடிவது ஏன்?

மாமாங்கம் சிந்தித்ததன் பலன் இன்று கிடைத்தது.
மறுக்க முடியாத விளக்கம் ஒன்று - எவராலுமே!

மாட்டுப் (மாட்டிய?) பெண்ணை விடாமல்
மாறி மாறிக் கிழித்து நார் நாராகுவது தான்....

வேலை, தொழில், பொழுதுபோக்கு மட்டுமன்றி
கேலி, கேளிக்கை, ஜாலி எல்லாமே இவர்களுக்கு!

மாமியார் பெயர் எப்படி விட்டுப் போயிற்று?
மாமியார் கிழிப்பதோடு நில்லாமல் மேலும்

அலசிக் காயப்போட்டு அவை பறந்துவிடாமல்,
மேலும் 'கிளிப்'பும் போட்டு விடுவதாலா?

(பின்குறிப்பு)

நார் நாராக்கிவிட 'னார்கள்' இல்லையா?
வேறு யாராவது வந்து சேருவார் பாரீர்!

மற்றிதன் காரணம் - "Nature abhors vacuum "
வெற்றிடத்தை இயற்கை வெறுத்திடும்!

இது பழங்கதை ஆகி விட்டதோ?
அதனால் பாதகம் ஒன்றும் இல்லை !

ஆள் மாறலாம் ....ஆனால் ரோல் மட்டும் என்றும் மாறாது!
மாமியாரின் ரோலை மருமகள் எடுத்துக் கொள்ளலாமே!

'வல்லான் வகுத்ததே வாய்க்கால்!' என்றால்
செல்வாக்கு உள்ளவர் வகுப்பதே வாழ்க்கை

Of all those arts in which the wise excel,
Nature's chief masterpiece is writing well.

Think much, speak less, write little.

True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learned to dance.
