Quotations! Where would we be without them? I’ve always been mesmerised by the fact that some people can effectively convey a very deep and meaningful message while being so succinct.
I’ve always wanted to be a man of few words, but the problem is that the way I structure my thoughts, I need way too many words to describe a particular thought or an idea. For example, whatever you’ve read in the post until now could have been conveyed within 30-35 words but here we are, sitting pretty at a whooping 92 words.
So when I was asked to do a Quotes Tag by my dear friend Cereus Florus, I was quick to action. Although I am not in knowledge of a large number of quotes, nor do I find most quotes relatable to my life, there are a few that really speak to me and I would like to share them here. I would also like to mention Hurain, the creator of this tag, and comment on how great an idea it was to conceptualise such a novel concept.
Enjoy the quotes!
