Walk of Life

"There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. 
Do everything in life out of happiness, and not for happiness."

"Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqder se pehle
Khuda bande se khud puche bata teri raza kya hai." 
~ Iqbal

I think, therefore I can

The original "Cogito ergo sum" meaning "I think, therefore I am" doesn't involve any mention of action or the ability to do so.

There are times when we need that belief in our efforts and ourselves. Hence I say "I think, therefore I can" or in latin "
Cogito ergo possum" (just to make it sound more authentic! :P)

When talking to GD about my dreams and the value of time at IIT.

What's the difference

They divide themselves into casts and then further into classes and it keeps on going ...

Everybody wants to be different;
... they are all the same!"
