Quotes and Needs…

Well I had some tags pending so decided to take up two of them in one post.

First tag from RiverSoul asks me to state 5 favorite quotes from my favorite books. I read a lot, but don’t remember many from books, so I have decided to edit it to make it my top 5 favorite quotes.

1.”Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” – William Wordsworth
2.”I would sooner fail than not be among the greatest.” – John Keats
3.”You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.” – Aristotle
4.”Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away.” – from movie Hitch
5.”Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our dark that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don’t feel insecure around you.We are all meant to shine as children do. Its not just in some of us; its in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsiously give other people to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – from movie Coach Carter

Well there they are. My most favorite is the last one.
Now I pass the tag to
Aayushi, Winnie and Mampi.

Second tag from Diana… I have to Google my name, follow
ed by NEEDS and write down the top 5 answers given by the search. Well, this should be interesting!

1.Vinay needs food. (seriously?? No way… I am not that desperate esp. on a day I am fasting…!)
2.Vinay needs to improve his expressions. (Yeah right… my gal says I have too good expressions but Google disagrees? I’ll go with my gal…!)
3.Vinay needs to get better. (At what precisely?? ;))
4.Vinay needs to know about everything. (Yeah right… this time Google agrees with my gal…she says the same thing…!)
5.Vinay needs a bone-marrow transplant as soon as possible. (Its not me, but whoever it is, I hope he gets it soon)

Well, I tag Riversoul, Winnie, Sameera(don’t take the booklist tag, do this one yaar!!),Aayushi and Pooja.
Also, both tags are left open, so anyone can take it up. Cheers.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
