Selected quotes by Warren Buffet :-
-Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.
-Derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction.
-Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them. If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars.
-A public-opinion poll is no substitute for thought.
-I am quite serious when I say that I do not believe there are, on the whole earth besides, so many intensified bores as in these United States. No man can form an adequate idea of the real meaning of the word, without coming here.
-Beware of geeks bearing formulas.
-Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it.
-If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.
-Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.
-Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

Yea, the pic is the tree in front of my house. Dont know who planted it though ;)

Waiting for rain...

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Coming back...

One believes that if nothing happens, one disappears. That is not true.
- Isabelle Adjani
Yea..the picture is of some unknown plant growing after first rains here. I didnt see any of these during long months of summer but after first showers of rain, they suddenly appear out of nowhere. Yes, if nothing happens, doesnt really mean one has disappeared, isnt it? I especially like the shape of leaves, wide and all encompassing :)

A Messenger...

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.
- Anne Frank
Yes, the pic is 'umber' fruit :D
