It is not unusual for a layman like you and me to feel mesmerized after reading famous quotes. Most of us fumble when asked to imagine what could have sparked off this quote or that one. Even though we aren't living so differently than the writers of these quotes, we find it difficult to distill our knowledge or the experiences the way these thinkers can. It is as if, even though we have all the ingredients for a chemical reaction, we cannot pull it off because we lack the sense of timing, order and interactions needed for its meaningful outcome. The following is a collection of quotes which you will surely love going through.

  • It saddens Norwegians that America still honors the Italian Columbus, who arrived late in the New World and by accident, who wasn't even interested in New Worlds but only in spices. Out on a spin in search of curry powder and hot peppers a man on a voyage to the grocery he stumbled onto the land of heroic Vikings and proceeded to get the credit for it. And then to name it 'America' after Amerigo Vespucci, an Italian who never saw the New World but only sat in Italy and drew incredibly inaccurate maps of it. By rights, it should be called Erica, after Eric the Red, who did the work five hundred years earlier. The United States of Erica, Erica the Beautiful, The Erican League. ~ Anonymous

There are some people who believe in a clichéd saying, 'Everything is fair in love and war.' On the other hand, there are some personalities who claim, 'Life is nothing but giving.' Apart from these people, who believe in acquiring a thing at any cost or giving a thing whatever the cost, are individuals like Kahlil Gibran who find life, love and nature are one and the same thing. I hope the above quotes about life and love have enlightened you and made you really think as to what life is all about.
