  • Happy Women’s Day

    I didn’t realize today’s International Women’s Day until I got this nice wish from my friend. So here I am wishing all you ladies a Happy International Women’s Day!!

    Women Day Wish

    If you want something said, ask a man;
    if you want something done, ask a woman.

    -Margaret Thatcher

    Quotology: Dreams

    A dream is a microscope through which we look at the hidden occurrences in our soul. -Erich Fromm

    The problem is I don’t dream at all. May be a dream is just your unconscious desires that haunt you through your sleep. In that case, I lack desires and nothing can haunt me in my sleep. I think I prefer it that way, realism is better than fantasy and delusion.

    Whatever it is, I like the second quote:

    The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up. -Paul Valery

  • Quote: Necessity

    Necessity is the mother of invention – Jonathan Swift.

    Necessity may be the mother of invention, but play is certainly the father – Roger von Oech.

    I don’t really get it, do you? The first quote I kinda get it but once I read the second quote, I’m lost.

    Reading Quotes

    I am following Nature without being able to grasp her…I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers -Claude Monet

    What the heck is that suppose to mean? I’m not really artistic or poetic or whatever minded, I don’t get the meaning of that quote.
    Anybody with a good imagination likes to explain me?

    Oh I just make a synonyms check on the word “Artistic” and “Poetic” in MS Word and the results are pretty intriguing.

    • Artistic
      • creative
      • Imaginative
      • inventive
      • Arty
    • Poetic
      • lyrical
      • Elegiac
      • graceful
      • Rhythmical
      • flowing
      • Prosaic
      • sensitive
      • full of feeling

    Wow “full of feeling” ! Very fascinating…I just love checking synonyms for each word and learn other similar words.
    Ok the thing is, there is no synonym given for the word “Synonyms” in MS Word. Haha.
