To Be or Not To Be
A little kingdom I possess,
Where thoughts and feelings dwell;
And very hard the task I find
Of governing it well.
-- Louisa May Alcott.

Where there is life, there is hope...
But when fate is always against you, what is the scope?
It's a very long time since i wrote these words...but very rarely have I had occasion to forget them.
I am not more superstitious than most, indeed I value very few qualities as much as a scientific temper, but there are times when I have to admit to myself, inspite of myself, that there is something called Fate. And as we humans are prone to consider our own sorrows as greater than anyone else's, I too can't help feeling that this imaginary creature called fate, for some reason known only to itself, has a peculiar grudge against me.
Wrote these lines yesterday in a Murphy ("If anything can go wrong, it will") mood, but was unable to post them -- and a good thing too -- tomorrow has been another day!! :)
Where there is life, there is indeed hope...
At the worst of times, you have it in you to cope!

Knowledge may give weight, but accomplishments give lustre, and many more people see than weigh.
