“A book has but one vioce, but it does not instruct everyone alike.”

How to pass time? There are so many good things to do in life… isn’t it? Look at the pot in which last summer I bought a plant which had a yellow flower with two little buds and later by winter I see they are not only dead but the pot was all dried up and even the sand was dried as if nothing to offer to give a life to the plant. These flowers with the vase was a gift from my friend 😀

“Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas” ~ Elizabeth Murray

And guess what, this morning when I see the pot which was empty all these days has few green leaves :D…past couple of weeks rains have given this life…I loved the life growing in my arms as the days pass it gives new innovative ways to smile!!

“How beautiful is youth! how bright it gleams with its illusions, aspirations, dreams! Book of Beginnings, Story without End, Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend!” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Well, besides cherishing bringing the new life into this world, I had the opportunity to watch Blood Diamond and let me tell you I sincerely feel that Leo should have got the Oscar…as his work is indeed marvelous in this!!! Besides the actor, the movie is well taken and I will say if you have not seen then please do so!!! Africa is beautiful 😀

“The role of the artist I now understood as that of revealing through the world-surfaces the implicit forms of the soul, and the great agent to assist the artist was the myth.” ~ Joseph Campbell

And guess what, last time I had added a post about Paulo Cohelo’s “The Zahir” which one of my fan friend suggested to read and since then I was trying to find but was unable to get one!

“I want to give the audience a hint of a scene. No more than that. Give them too much and they won’t contribute anything themselves. Give them just a suggestion and you get them working with you. That’s what gives the theater meaning: when it becomes a social act.” ~ Orson Welles

However, I got this book as a birthday gift 😉 and was only able to finish reading it now! My friend had told me to read this as he finds the story is that of a similar girl like me …. lol 😀

It’s a good book which speaks about life and our expectations and the illusions that usually we humans go through.

“You cannot open a book without learning something.” ~ Confucius

On to another book “The Nudist On The Late Shift” by PO Bronson; courtesy my friend Bombayite 😉 Thanks Sethu mone!!!

This quote is dedicated to all my three friends above I mentioned 😉 and to the ones whom I have found here 😀

“To have a good friend is one of the highest delights in life; to be a good friend is one of the noblest and most difficult undertakings.”

  1. Dawn:Check this out:http://www.librarything.com/work/217507I liked this-You cannot open a book without learning something.” ~ ConfuciusTell me about passtime girl. Its more of learning here and ther and then withdraw. I was very much into embroidery and little bit of creative pencil sketch work just for myself. Lets see you know:)Have a good weekend girl…

  2. Greate choices for th pastime. Tried a little bit of evrything, and only the books and movies lasts longer. Now a days, gardening has become a luxury!!Zahir is an amzing book. Try, “ By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept” by Paulo again.As usual, quotes are good

  3. Lovely post 🙂Zahir was an interesting book. But I could never relate to the characters, guess I am less adventurous than those mentioned in the book 😀
