“There are ways and ways to measure greatness. Some stamp their greatness by the way they bat, the way they conjure up strokes that are beyond the reach of most. Richards had greatness written in his mere walk to the middle, Tendulkar in his precocity, and Lara in his incandescence. Theirs was a greatness easy to notice because they were different from the rest. To watch them bat was to feel awe. To watch them dispatch good balls to the boundary was to feel blessed. They made you feel grateful for their genius.”

“When the world has been unkind, when life’s troubles cloud your mind, Don’t sit down and frown and sigh and moon and mope. Take a walk along the square, fill your lungs with God’s fresh air, Then go whistling back to work and smile and hope.”

James Joyce
“Art is the human disposition of sensible or intelligible matter for an esthetic end.”
James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

“Rise, traveller, the sky is light. Why do you sleep? It is not night. The sleeping lose, and sleep in vain. The waking rise, and rise to gain. Open your eyelids, you who nod. O heedless one, pay heed to God. Is this your way to show your love? You sleep below, he wakes above. What you have done, that you must bear. Where is the joy in sin then, where? When on your head your sins lie deep, Why do you clutch your head and weep? Tomorrow’s task, enact today. Today’s at once; do not delay. When birds have robbed the standing grain What use to wring your hands in vain?”

“success is not always measured in terms of dollars earned or turnover. It is measured in terms of the difference you have made to the people around you.”
Ravi Subramanian, God Is a Gamer
