Do you have a favorite quote you return to again and again? What is it? and Why does it move you?
I have two favorite quotes of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the first “Governor General of Pakistan.”
One is, “Think 100 times before you take a decision;But once a decision is taken,stand by it as one man.”
Second is ,”There are two powers in the world; One is the sword and the other is the pen.There is a great competition between the two . There is the third power stronger than both, that of the women.”
As far as I understand , the first one is pointing to people who are not capable of making up their mind. Believe me there are more than a few. I know some who are from my family, I was always irritated when they could not make up their mind. In the end I’d have a huge argument, the result was the decision finally made was always wrong.One can imagine how annoyed I was when I heard the sentence,”I should have listened to you.”
The second one about the power of women stronger than the sword and pen, really makes me proud.
