A Quote for life!


“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.
Specialization is for Insects

No Smoking

I wrote some time back, ‘A gentleman knows when to leave.’ That is so true that I am trying to change my life radically and I am leaving things that blemish my image – my persona – my mentality and my health and wellbeing. It was my birthday on 14th of this month. And I have decided to quit smoking once and for all. I have not been smoking all these days – only one or two – here and there. Now, it’s totally stopped. I said, TOTALLY!

Cigarette smoking is not a crime. But it is now punishable offence in India. Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss, the health minister has made a rule preventing the citizens from smoking in public places. You may not smoke in public. I heard that the owner of the building gets summoned if you are caught smoking in front of that building. This idea will surely not end in smoke.

I dislike the smell of smoke or the cigarette and felt uneasy while I smoked through these years. I never liked smoking myself – but somehow, got into it and continued, till October 14, 2008. Have not smoked from then – will not smoke ever.

I know I will leave some months less – may be some years; but quitting smoke will make sure that I do not decrease life any further. Got hold of a few funny one liners while searching for the pics. Here they are:

# It was 6 inches what brought you to life and it will take 4 inches to take it back! - Shashank Jha, IIM Indore
# It is easier to stay out than get out. - Mark Twain
# The only 'safer' cigarette is your last one. - Duane Alan Hahn
# You're always better off if you quit smoking; it's never too late. - Loni Anderson
# The best way to stop smoking is to just stop - no ifs, ands or butts. - Edith Zittler
