A Tag Full of Quotes

Took up this tag from Sandeep's.

Some of my favorite quotes are:

"It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." -Albus Dumbledore

"You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him." -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"That best portion of a good man's life, - his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love." -William Wordsworth

"Every minute of every day is an opportunity to learn something new. Sharing what we learn with people around us is one of the best ways I know to give thanks for our ability to be educated. Books are great for sharing all kinds of experiences." -Ananda Lewis, RIF spokesperson and MTV VJ

"Be kind. Remember everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." -John Watson

So what are your favorite quotes?

"Just did one of the 2 tags you gave ages ago."

(Does that qualify as a quote?)

Stupidosaur said...

Hey I thought you tagged me with two. Today I could not find the second one. Did you or did you not?

Kanan said...

Sandeep, thank you! Glad you liked that one.

Nishit, very nice one. I too like it quite a lot. Another similar one that a pal once told me about is "this too shall pass".

Urv, jaldi kar ne to.. vaar sheni? :P

Stupidosaur, no, that does not qualify as a quote but I am sure there are plenty of them in your Lovindranath TAGore post. :)

Btw, the second one might have been an award instead of a tag. Is this the post you were searching for?

If I choose from YOUR collection of qotes:
1) "Be kind. Remember everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
2) "You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him."

I came across one great quote:

"There are two great days in our life: The day we are born, and the day we discover why we are born !!!"

Kanan said...

Jaydip, thanks. Sure, pls do share yours too. :)

Snehal, that's one heck of a quote. Thought provoking. My sister would love this one. She also believes that we are born for some particular goal in life. I still need to think about that...
