Another 10 after a really long time...

All of us start life thinking we will always get to say FTW. Most of us end up living life saying it in reverse.

At times it is best to not prick the bubble which some people tend to live in. You might not like what comes out.

Be generous with compliments and stingy with criticism, but always wash them with truth before dispensing.

It is ok to fence your boundaries with your intolerance to contrary ideals. But only as long as you intend to grow beyond them.

It must be hard being the ocean. The whole world spills its sorrows into you and you have no one to turn to. Even the merciless sun beats down on you. You simmer, the growing mass salt stings your insides. You seethe, you rage only to retreat within yourself.

Life insurance is all about betting on your own death and hoping that you lose.

Most of the time, I hate deadlines. But there is nothing more satisfying than watching one charge at you with its fangs out and you calmly wait for it to make it into the crosshairs, then put a slug through it and smugly watch it whimper to a slow death.

The concept of equality is like a barb-wire fence between the oppressors and the oppressed which makes the concept of a fence-sitter implausible.

The difference between confidence and determination is the gap between what you perceive yourself to be capable of and what you are actually capable of.

Yeah I always considered him a level-headed bloke. Ground-level actually.
