1. If you love somebody ,
let them go,
for if they return,
they were always yours,
And if they do not,
they were never yours.
2. A little knowledge that acts
is worth more
than much knowledge that is idle.
3. When we turn to one another
for counsel we reduce
the number of our enemies.
4. The smallest act of kindness
is worth more than
the greatest intention.
5. Our anxiety does not
come from thinking
about the future,
but from wanting to control it.
6. If you cannot work with love,
but only with distaste,
it is better that
you should leave
I found the above quotes very useful, I therefore decided to share them with my friends.
How would you get along with your sibling(s), parent(s) or any other person you’ve known for a long time— if you met them for the first time today?
One person I’d love to meet whom I’ve known in my college days is, ‘Aziz Fatima,’ she was a wonderful person, was fair and treated everyone kindly.
If I met her today, first of all I’d be so delighted I wouldn’t know how to interact with her after such a long time.
A few years ago I went to attend a wedding in Baltimore, Maryland, I was hoping by some accident I’d meet her, I thought that because another college friend of mine told me Aziz lives in Baltimore. I looked for her among the people attending the wedding.
Aziz was originally from Uttar Pradesh India, her family settled in Bangladesh. I met her in college, we talked about ourselves and spent hours doing it. The thought I’d never meet her after completing our studies in the University never crossed my mind. I feel it was a mistake on my part not to take her address. I have lost contact with her for a long time.
If I meet her today,after the initial shock I’d certainly invite her to my house and chat for hours about how things shaped up for us after university, I wish I meet her one more time, I’d apologize for not keeping in touch with her.
What’s the most dreadful (or wonderful) experience you’ve ever had as a customer?
I bought a shop vac from a local hardware store, when I tried to put it together I found the important parts missing. I took it back to the store’s customer service, the sales lady ,looked at me and said we are not taking these back.
I was unhappy, I asked her, “Why won’t you take it back?”
She said some customers bought a similar shop vac used it and decided to return it.
I told her, she should have asked me the reason for returning the appliance.
I opened the box and showed her there were parts missing.
When she realized she had made a mistake, she talked to someone over the phone, and then refunded my money.
I guess in my case I’d have to agree ,with the saying,”All is well that ends well.”
