In boxing sport, you can never take things for granted and Mike Tyson’s quote is apt. The attitude should be that you are not going to give up because of your will power.

Food for thought

What is the difference between Sculpture and Statue ? My guess is both are same.

I am always confused.

Is it worth falling in ‘love’ ?

 

Love

Love is a net that catches hearts like a fish  Muhammad Ali

How many times have you fallen in love ?

Is this love just for one person ?

Did you happen to change your Love ?

Has the intensity of your love declined over the time ?

For what reason ?

Your expectations failed you ?

Why is love not returned in equal amounts ?

Don’t get hypnotized by Love.

Avoid bites from love bugs  !

29 Reasons to hate ‘Love’

Remember….It’s better to be no one than to be with a wrong one.

What is love ?

“Love is like the ocean.It’s calm and reassuring.It rages in a storm.

It’s home to some of your greatest and finest of pleasures.

You can let it kill….or you can allow it to guide you.

But no matter how you choose,one thing is for certain…it always takes up majority of your world”

KD De Fehr

Trivia

You heard the phrase ‘It’s raining dogs & cats’

Do you know about Raining Fish ?

Once a year, in the Honduran city of Yoro, it rains live fish in a weather event known as Lluvia de Peces or Rain of Fish.

In the months of May or June, each year a large storm rolls through the town with very heavy rain, and once the storm has passed, living fish can be found on the streets.

This phenomenon was confirmed by a National Geographic team in the 1970s but whether or not the fish are literally raining from the sky is still unknown.

Some scientists think the fish could be carried in waterspouts or water tornadoes which then drops the fish as the storm loses energy over land.    Source-yourquote.in

Is this a fiction or truth ?

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t   Mark Twain

Learn from the Child

statue

“A child can teach an adult three things:

To be happy for no reason,

To always be busy with something, and

To know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.”  Paulo Coelho

Instead what is happening ?

” We spend the first year of a Child’s life… teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of it’s life to shut up and sit down.There is something wrong there ”  Neil deGrasse Tyson

Statue

This statue is noticed along the Steenhouwersdijk canal in Bruges, a place famous for canals,bridges and statues, near Brussels.( 88 Kms from Brussels)

Bruges is said to be Venice of the North.

At first glance, I thought the statue has fallen,but a closer look,I realized that the person is either in deep thought or engrossed in the beauty of the flowing canal water.

I felt this statue is interesting because

  • It’s naked
  • Green in color and
  • It’s in lying position
  • Engrossed in something,which none of us can make out.

Do Statues teach us any thing apart from refreshing our memory ?

“What can you learn from a Statue ? You can learn to stay calm what ever happens !!”  Mehmet Murat Ildan

And with Corona Pandemic in an aggressive mood,best thing is to stay calm !

Thank you. Namaste  🙏🙏🙏
