    If you haven't got a wastepaper basket full of rejected pages at the end of each day, then what you are writing is probably not worth reading.

    "To be or not to be, this is the question!"
    This quote is not concerned with literature or literary expression, as it is with general life style, but I my self face this piquent situation, when ever I had to write or I wanna write as I am always short of time, and that is not the only reason for putting this quote here, as I did not think much as it is my first post and I wanna check if it can really be posted or not.......

    My favourite quote is :
    "Life is a tale told by an idiot
    Full of sound and fury
    signifying nothing"

    We are all on earth to help others. What on earth the others are here for, I can't imagine.

    W.H.Auden
    My lifelong love affair with books and reading continues unaffected by automation, computers, and all other forms of the twentieth-century gadgetry.

    People say that life is the thing, but I prefer reading.

    And yet, what rapture to be loved!
    And, Gods, to love - what ecstasy!

    It takes so little to make a child happy that it is a pity, in a world so full of sunshine and pleasant things, that there should be any wistful faces, empty hands, or lonely little hearts. - Louisa May Alcott- (Little Men)

    This quote is so true, and so sad.

    L.M.A. is my favourite Author.

    I'd rather say that this is my favourite subject.

    "At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet." (Plato)

    "To love another person is to see the face of God." (Victor Hugo)
    Love doesn't make the world go round,
    love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

    senhor jose looks again at what is written on the card, the handwriting, needles to say, is not his, it's an old-fashioned hand, thirty-six years ago another clerk wrote the words you can read here, the name of the baby girl, the names of her parents and god-parents, the date and hour of her birth, the street and the number of of the apartment where she first saw the light of day and first felt pain, the same beginning as everyone else, the differences, great and small, come later, some of those who are born become entries in encyclopedias, in history books, in biographies, in catalogues, in manuals, in collections of newspaper clippings, the others, roughly speaking, are like a cloud that passes without leaving behind it any trace of its passing, and if rain fell from that cloud, it did not even wet the earth.

    We dare not because it is difficult. Rather, it is difficult because we dare not.

    But then they danced down the street like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
    - Jack Kerouac (from On the Road)
