Words!


I love the way Mont blanc (maw blah') is not pronounced the way its spelled.

I love it when misspell is most often misspelled!

I love the way a silent 'G' in sign is emphasized in signature

and i love it the most when a word contradicts its own meaning!






Words have always fascinated me. I just love the way it motivates, angers, intrigues and disguises people. It grabs my attention more often that I thought it did! Novels, stories, poems, lyrics, scripts, one liners, headlines... all written with a sole intention of conveying thoughts.




Ironically, Quotes never really gripped me that well. It definitely inspired me but only for the second I read it. The next thing I know is, it disappears from my memory without a trace! I just cant remember them or the person who'd said it.Its more like a disorder.

My aimless browsing led me through an array of crap and halted at a website thinkexist.com wherein I discovered a treasure chest of quotes that i could relate with oh-so-much! I have never loved words so much. I am a happy person when I read something good.

The quotes below contains a puny little element of what I am deep inside... my favorites for sure! And surprisingly, I remember them! Word by word... ;)




Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

It takes courage to change your style, your opinion, the path you walk, your hat! It takes courage to let go of weighty parts of the past. It takes courage to find your own voice.









Wit is a sword, it is meant to make people feel the point and see it.














Trust that little voice in your head that says, "Wouldn't it be interesting if..."

And then do it.













I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.

Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, its a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope, which is what I do and that enables you to laugh at life's realities!















The unreal is more powerful than the real because nothing is as perfect as you imagine it. Its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last.

Stone crumbles, wood rots, people, well, they die, but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
