I love taking lazy walks on the internet. My web-walks as I call them, often lead me to interesting and unknown places which are a treasure trove of ideas, thoughts and reflections. ‘What They Said’ is an attempt to curate and share some of the best content I stumbled upon during my web-walks.
That’s what friends are — people who share your crazy outlook and protect you from the world… Friendship is an island you retreat to, and you’re all on the floor and laugh at all the other ninnies who don’t have enough brains to have your good taste
– Ray Bradbury ( Author, Playwright, Screenwriter & Poet)
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
– Mark Twain (Author & Humorist.
Real Name: Samuel Langhorne Clemens)
What is a fear of living? It’s being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself – for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don’t know what you’re here to do, then just do some good.
– Maya Angelou ( Poet, Singer, Actress and Author)
Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.
― Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
If you imagine less, less will be what you undoubtedly deserve. Do what you love, and don’t stop until you get what you love. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities, don’t compromise, and don’t waste time. Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two weeks from now. Now.
