So they said

Some interesting quotes (taken from zigzackly's site) that I really think make sense. Usually the whole quote-unquote deal can be pretty boring to read, I know, but some people say things that genuinely make me feel like I should have said them!

Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching.
~ Satchel Paige

Either you think - or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you.

~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds.

~ George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans), novelist (1819-1880)

Assumptions are the termites of relationships.

~ Henry Winkler, actor (1945- )

There's a Fitzgerald quote that ranks among my favourites and seems to be a natural follow-up to the one you have listed here.

"The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function."

To answer your question on my blog, I'm kind of on sabbatical in Bangalore and worked on a number of Ashoka projects in Delhi. do you know the org? Email me at roshanpaul@hotmail.com, if you like.
