Cool insults

Any similarity between you and a human is purely coincidental. Are you always so stupid or is today a special occasion? I’d like to kick you in the teeth, but why should I improve your looks? Brains aren’t everything. In fact, in your case they’re nothing. I like you. People say I’ve no taste, but I like you. Don’t feel bad. A lot of people have no talent. I never forget a face, but in your case I’ll be glad to make an exception. - Groucho

Lord Macaulay's address to the British Parliament, Feb 2, 1835

I believe he exaggerated as it’s odd to not think of thieves and crooks in any society. But it certainly conveys his sentiments.

"I have travelled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural...

Excerpts from Osho's "From personality to individuality"

I am absolutely certain that Buddha never looked like his statues because those statues were made five hundred years after him ? after Buddha had already been dead for five hundred years. After those five hundred years, Alexander the Great visited India. The image of Buddha is closer to the face of Alexander the Great than Buddha himself, because the face is Greek, the nose is Greek, the eyes are Greek. Buddha’s statue does not look like a Hindu statue.
When Hindu sculptors saw Alexander...

World is full of good people

This is one of the great story in Robert Fulgham’s exceptionally wise and thougt-generating book, All I really need to know I learned in Kindergarten

Here’s a phrase we hear a lot: "You can’t trust anybody anymore." Doctors and politicians and merchants and salesman, they’re all out to rip you off, right?

Normally, one makes eye contact one-quarter to one-half of the time. If suddenly, at the convenient moment tolie, he’s staring at you or looking away, beware. Turning his body away from you, even if just slightly. Suddenly being able to see the white on the top and bottom of a person’s eyes, not just the sides. A hand...

It’s not conditions which determine your destiny, but your decisions. Mr Honda in 1938 had an idea to make a piston ring while he was still in school. He labored for two years day and night, slept in the workshop and when after two years he went to Toyota to sell them the piston rings. They rejected it saying it didn’t meet their expectations. He continued laboring for two...
