I’m an extensive book-lover. Reading is one of the staples and basic activities of my life just like eating and bathing! And if anyone of you is wondering why I haven’t been upto my blog lately, I’ve been too engrossed in reading. Well generally I balance the amount of time for reading, writing, blogging and other activities but last couple of days I’ve been solely with my books. Books I feel the most precious of all the tangible assets – being tangible they give you intangible knowledge, wisdom and depth. And in the latest books that I’ve been reading, I came through things that were so amazing, real and striking! And it struck on me that I would share a few of those for all. Following there are few excerpts – lines, phrases and paragraphs from certain books(which is noted along). Happy reading J

  • “ All rational discussion must stop the moment we hear ‘I believe’ “ – Derren Brown – Tricks of the Mind
  • “ the thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you may have “ – The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz
  • “ Life is a woman. Try to understand life and you will be a mess. Forget all about understanding. Just live it and you will understand it. That is the meaning when we say life is a mystery. It can be lived but it cannot be solved. “– Life, Love, Laughter – OSHO
  • “ The highest state of love is not a relationship at all, it is simply a state of your being. Just as trees are green, a lover is loving. The flower goes on spreading its fragrance whether anybody appreciates or not. The flower does not start releasing its fragrance when it sees that a great poet is coming by – and it does not close its doors when it sees that a stupid, idiotic person is passing there “ – Life, Love, Laughter – OSHO
