THE BEAUTY OF SIMPLICITY


When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, under water, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.



The Russians used a pencil.




Moral of the story:

"Don't be so complicated. Most of the times, something simple would do".

ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE?


When you are together with that special someone, you pretend to ignore that person.

But when that special someone is not around, you might look around to find her. At that moment, you are in love.
Although there is someone else who makes you laugh, your eyes and attention might only go to that special someone. Then, you are in love.

Although that special someone was supposed to have call you long back, to let you know of her safe arrival, your phone is quiet. You are desperately waiting for the call! At that moment, you are in love.

If you are much more excited for one short email more than other many long emails, you are in love.

When you find yourself as one who cannot erase all the messages in your answering machine because of one message from that special someone, you are in love.

When you get a couple of free movie tickets, you would not hesitate to think of that special someone. Then, you are in love.

You keep telling yourself, “that special someone is just a friend”, but you realize that you cannot avoid that person’s special attraction. At that moment, you are in love.

While you are reading this blog, if someone appears in your mind. Then, you are in love with that person.

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
It is about choices that we have to make in life and of course it is not an easy decision for we have to live with the consequences of our choice. It's choice - not chance - that determines our destiny!
