Pelorat sighed. "I will never understand people."

"There's nothing to it. All you have to do is take a close look at yourself and you will understand everyone else. How would Seldon have worked out his Plan -- and I don't care how subtle his mathematics was -- if he didn't understand people; and how could he have done that if people weren't easy to understand? You show me someone who can't understand people and I'll show you someone who has built up a false image of himself -- no offense intended."
-- Asimov, "Foundation's Edge"

Good Idea.
I was having one thread " Kabadik Kabadik Kabadik ".
Now I could not figure it out.
Otherwise we can make use of that thread also for this purpose.

--Douglas Adams

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move."

In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror,
murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michaelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci
and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had
five hundred years of democracy and peace -- and what did they produce?
The cuckoo-clock.
-- Orson Welles, "The Third Man"

A warrior must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if he feels
that he should not follow it, he must not stay with it under any conditions.
His decision to keep on that path or to leave it must be free of fear or
ambition. He must look at every path closely and deliberately. There is a
question that a warrior has to ask, mandatorily: 'Does this path have a
heart?'

Sometimes when I get up in the morning, I feel very peculiar. I feel like I've just got to bite a cat! I feel like if I don't bite a cat before sundown, I'll go crazy! But then I just take a deep breath and forget about it. That's what is known as real maturity.

guaze is something through which u can see atleast semi-clearly,

but linoleum is a type of flooring which is very opaque though it also has checks and squares like a guaze.

hope this helps and these links too
