Some thoughts worth pondering upon

·        सा विद्या या विमुक्तये (Knowledge is that which liberates). Vishnu Purana 1.19.41


·        Things which matter the most must never be at the mercy of things which matter less. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


·        Do not impose on others what you do not desire others to impose upon you. Confucius


·        Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think. Neil deGrasse Tyson


·        In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. Robert Frost


·        That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence. Christopher Hitchens


·        We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Sahara. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively outnumbers the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here. We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred? Richard Dawkins
