Celebrating life

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    And you might like some quotes from THE CLASS by ERICH SEGAL as well…..

    1-” And I’ve come to what I think is a profound conclusion. The Class is really not a class. I mean we are not a brotherhood-or anything at all cohesive for that matter.
    In fact, the time we spent here was a kind of truce. A cease-fire in the war for fame and power. And in two more days the guns come out again.”

    2- ” Later in the afternoon, the seperation was complete. They now divided into a thousand atoms, going off at various speeds in different directions.
    Would they ever come together as a unity again?
    Had they ever been one? ”

    3- ” I had always looked at him as the exception to the rule. But now I realize that everybody pays a price for his success.”

    4- ” For, though he had not known it-and perhaps still did not understand-he was, in human terms, the best man in The Class. ”

    5- ” He emphasized that fear of death is universal. But what lies beneath that fear is the terror of insignificance. Of not being remembered, not counting.”

    6- ” Quiet heroism or youthful idealism, or both? What do we know? That life without heroism and idealism is not worth living–or that either can be fatal? We are here to remember our classmates. They are not nameless. They are known. They were ours, and shall ever be.”

    7- ” This was the beginning of the end. They had met once more and just had time enough to learn that they liked one another.
    And to say goodbye.”

  8. Neat! Yes I did 🙂 Thanks for the contribution Aftab.

  9. good quotes……..!! and a nice blog…..!!

  10. Thanks hera*, and welcome to my blog 🙂

  11. I’m in love with the last quote…….

    You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America’s Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn’t want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named ‘Bush’, ‘Dick’, and ‘Colon’.

  12. yeah – Chris is funny and usually has very interesting observations 🙂 Thx for visiting Aftab!

  13. I liked the first quote very much. It goes very deep I guess. I don’t find it funny at all. There are some people around us what ever they do, how hard they try, they just fail. And I am myself warning to others for a stupid thing I did last year which has cost me so much. And I can’t blame myself for that. There are things where you just find yourself help less.

  14. And alhamdulillah as life goes on, we have the opportunity to learn from the past, hopefully making better decisions in the future.
