Whenever I travel on airplanes I never watch movies; I spend most of my time watching the flight path amazing at the height of flight — 36,000 feet at an average speed of 550 miles per hour. I also watch the temperature of minus -45-degree F etc. Other times I sleep or read something. But during my trip to India on July 2019 I came across the issue of The Week (issue date 29 June). There were lot of news items that grabbed my attention. One of them is the Wit and Wisdom page. Here are some interesting quotations: –

“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what then is an empty desk a sign?” – Albert Einstein

(My comments- Thanks, Einstein; I was worried about my cluttered desk! Family members always complain about my cluttered desk and cluttered desk top screen on my PC. Now I know I am as intelligent as Einstein!)


“Everybody was so gaga about Steve Jobs, but I picture him in hell running from demons, who want a selfie” – Jim Carrey blames the Apple founder for the popularity of selfies, quoted in the I newspaper.

(My comment- It is not fair to blame Steve for this; Selfies help us to reduce the population of idiots. Those who are idiots die at mountain cliffs, railway lines, water sources, top floors of the skyscrapers by taking selfies. Like knife, it can be used for both good and bad tasks. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, used it for popularising good things. He took selfies with baby girls (Indians favour boys). When printing machine was invented by Gutenberg , Christian church warned him of bringing Satan into the world. When computers were introduced into banksin India,  Marxist idiots cried of job loses and closed banks every month to stage demos. Popes of olden days banned printed Bibles. Now we laugh at them. So don’t blame Steve for selfies. It will get rid of the idiots from the earth and send them to hell. Long Live Steve Jobs!)


“Slow is the fastest way to get where you want to go”- Actor Andre De Shields quoted in The Hollywood Reporter.

(My comment- Thanks Andre. Now I know I am on the fastest track. This morning, the total number of hits for both my blogs crossed 11,000 hits per day mark; but I wanted to get 100,000 hits a day;  I will reach my goal, slowly, slowly)


“People do not change, they are merely revealed” – Writer Anne Enright quoted in the Independent.


“Time is an illusion. Lunch time doubly so”- Douglas Adams, quoted in The Guardian

(My comment- Very true! I worked for 43 years till my retirement in 2014. Lunch time was a luxury, unobtainable!


“It is impossible that a man who is false to his friends and neighbours should be true to the public”- Bishop Berkeley  quoted in The Guardian.

(My comment – I am reminded of politicians, particularly, Indian politicians. Most of them are not honest. Their friends expose them when they leave such unscrupulous people and go to another group or political party)


“I wear my enemies like medals”- Norman Stone quoted in The Sunday Times.

(My comments- Hindu gods did this! The demon under the statue of Nataraja (Dancing Shiva), the flags in the hand of Lord Skanda/ Kartikeya, and the Vahanas/ Mounts of several gods and goddesses are their enemies (demons)!
