Thoughts that grew me

We are all born with a blank mind and from then on we keep absorbing various thoughts picked from our parents, our teachers, books, friends, colleagues etc. Our ability to absorb them will obviously depend on factors like our intelligence, our sensibility, background etc. Based on that input we will keep developing a personality, and then at some point of time we tend to close the gates of our mind for new thoughts which is when we start having convictions and belief systems and from then on we start having a conflict with anyone who opposes.
I personally am a guy who has no belief systems and hence have no conflict with anything or anyone and the reason for that is that I never close the gate of my mind to thoughts from anywhere, which in turn would influence and change my existing thoughts in a continuous manner.
So here in this new section “Thoughts that grew me” that I am starting on my blog, I want to share with you thoughts I have heard, read or being quoted from books, movies, conversations etc. I am going to quote the thought and where I heard or read it from, but not necessarily where it originated from, as there is no way of me knowing that for sure.
The thoughts here could be quotes, anecdotes, excerpts and even passages from books. They could be funny, profound, entertaining, dramatic, thought provoking and thought changing. The only common thing in them would be that they would add some element to one’s understanding and thought process. Some of them might have a note from me as an explanation or to help in putting that thought in a particular context.
Once you go through the below example of thoughts, those of you interested can send me your own thoughts or what you heard and of those who appeal to me, I will put in here in this section.
1. There always will be a confused soul in an existing system who will think that he can change the system. The only way to convince him otherwise is to kill him. – Ned Beatty’s character in the film “The Shooter”.
2. You close your eyes and go to sleep and the world ceases to exist. – Philosopher Schopenhauer in his book “The World as Will and Idea”.
3. A lion wakes up everyday and starts running after a deer to survive. A deer wakes up everyday and starts running from a lion to survive. So the point is that it does not matter whether you are a lion or a deer. You just have to keep running. – An SMS from an unknown number.
4. It’s a good thing that the world turned out to be round as it would have been pretty difficult to put a satellite in a square orbit. – Mad magazine.
5. The best things in life are for free and pleasurable. It is only the dinners, the gifts and the conversations which one has to go through in order to lead to the best things which are both painful and expensive. – RGV
6.  Of many a proud structure’s ruin, raindrops and weeds have been the cause. – Friedrich Nietzsche – “Thus Spake Zarathustra”.
7. The first thing to do to make your dreams come true is to wake-up. – Line on a greeting card.
8. When Napoleon, who was supposedly short, was trying to reach for a book on a high shelf, one of his generals offered, “Let me get that for you, my Lord. I am higher than you,” to which apparently Napoleon replied, “You are not higher. You are longer.”
9. An agitated executive at a board of director’s meeting of the Liril soap company was overheard saying…… “It’s fantastic that we made the model so popular! But what about the fucking soap?”
10. Silence is not always golden. Many times it is just plain yellow. – Mad magazine.
11. The following excerpt is from the opening page of a Desmond Bagley book. I am quoting it here as an example of sheer narrative genius…………..
“I was standing at the edge of the cliff road with a body at my feet. You didn’t need to study medicine to know how the man died. He died of cardiac arrest. The arrest was caused due to a thin blade of steel passing through his heart. I wasn’t too anxious to call a doctor as at the time the blade pricked out his life its handle happened to be in my hands.”
12. The point of life is that there is no point to it. So the best point we can aim at is to live it point by point and point to point. – RGV.

    1. There are two ways to capture RGV’s attention. Being highly intelligent or extremely stupid. The latter, the quicker. (My reply to a friend when he questioned me why RGV seldom reacts to my comments).2. Who says ‘nothing is impossible’. I’ve been doing nothing for years.3. Ability is what will get you to the top, if the boss has no daughter. 4. Though nonsense is common I fail to understand…why common-sense is so rare? –> Me (said yesterday)5. Best way to impress a girl is to ignore her –> Me (My mantra when I was 22 yrs. Now, it became a curse. She ignores me :-()6. Falling down is not a defeat…but refusing to get up is… (I tampered the orginal quote)7. When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading – Henny Youngman8. I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying – Oscar Wilde9. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.10. Thanks for reading. Now, stop wasting your time and get back to work 🙂

  7. dinesh says:

    hi RGV, you always maintained that you are the never the same person everytime, and that you constantly keep changing the way you think, you analyse etc. But Ayn Rand emphasises in "The Fountainhead" that an ideal man never changes, he is always the same person, whenever you meet him. And people who change constantly naming it as " growth" are fools. Take for example, Howard roark. There is an entire paragraph explaining how Roark is a perfect man because he is always the same person, because he never contadicts himself, he always has the same beliefs. And i wonder how come you say you are very much influenced by Ayn Rand when practically you seem to be contradicting her in life.

  8. prashant says:

    Heaven and hell exist because its too difficult to accept that some one has vanished and will never be found anywhere in this trillions of light years expanded MASSIVE universe even if we roam around each and every corner of the universe for trillions of trillions of years in look out for them. People who have died, have just vanished, they don\’t exists any more. No matter how many ideas you put about after death, heaven, hell, reincarnation etc. they will never ever exists in your life again, you will never be able to hear them, touch them, see them, feel their presence, their smile, their laughter, their sorrow, their encouragement, their confidence in you, their expectation from you, your expectation from them, their love, their gratification towards you, everything related to them will vanish, the list is never ending. And believe me when they vanish they will make sure that they vanish with such loudness that the emptiness created in your life will require a lot of time for you to forget, it will never be filled, only thing you will and you must learn is to keep the emptiness aside.Success is all about sincere and honest attempt and not the result. One should not expect success if they know deep down that they were not 100% sincere and honest with their efforts.If you have an opinion then you fear the change.Opinions do not change anything, actions do.A sword is very harmful if its not in the hands of a responsible skilled warrior. Same things applies to a skilled writer who is having large number of readers in his/her reach. Both warrior and writer has to be very very very careful about each move they make, as one wrong skilled move by any one of them and many people will be cut into pieces.Reaching out to help helpless people by making them aware that you are helping them will make them feel more helpless. Just be there to hold them when they fall and not there to hold them when they have decided to face the situation on their own, let them face the situation on their own. AND if they fall for god sake don\’t start statement with "I had told you….". To decide to face the situation is the sign of a fighter, a warrior and people are at their supreme confidence and courage at this point. As the most important thing which significantly reduces the chance of failure is, not to have fear of failure that is what drives people when they are ready to face situation no matter what happens. And this reduced fear of failure is part of LUCK. For me LUCK is nothing but confidence of facing the situation without fear of failure, and FATE is opposite of it.Difference between understanding the feelings and feeling the feelings is as vast as the difference between an engineer and a scientist.Past stares at me helplessly, Present says I could have done better and future says I will do better, this cycle goes on forever…There is one negative thing, one neutral and one positive things in this statement, but if one negative thing gets attention, the positive things gradually cease to exist. One can not change past and if we get stuck to the helpless stare of the past, the passion in the thought of "Doing better" and "will be doing better" melts and falls on the ground like water droplets from melting ice. Work hard smartly, don\’t work smart hardly.The best thing to do is to do something best for yourself. Its really cost effective to remember you Girlfriend\’s birthday, Because if you don\’t then to please her you will have to shell out more money than what you could have spent on her birthday gift if you had remembered it.An artist who knows what to capture is better than the atrist who only knows how to capture.Nobody should ever be punished for making mistakes, and everybody must always be punished for committing crime. Every punishment for mistake closes one or more doors for innovations and inventions. Whereas every non punishment for crime opens up one or more doors of committing more crimes.Be architect of your life, not the drawing board

  9. prashant says:

    Past and Future never exists in reality, only things exists in reality is present which is consequences of the mixture of past and a person\’s intellect (Intellect is again consequences of past).Darkness is infinite not brightness, In general non-existance is infinite and existance is finite. God is infinite, so God does not exists hence proved 🙂 If you see the art from the point of view of its artist, you will instantly realize that flaw is in the art and not in its canvas

  10. prashant says:

    If you cannot accept others mistakes, then you cannot admit your own mistakes.Things never go wrong unless and untill you can make a fresh beginning.I never knew one of Newton\’s Laws applies to Information also, nowadays for every information, there exists equal and opposit(contradictory) information. This is due to the economics of information. So now truth exists in two parts one which is true and other part which is equally opposit to it and tht is also true…i know whatever I have written is utter non-sense but being a normal average human this is how confused I am by going through the sources of information. No single source provides complete information and multiple sources provide contradictory information .If I take up responsibility to stand against violence on people of my religion on the basis of religion, then I MUST take up responsibility of the violence by people of my religion on people of other religions on the basis of religion, IT CAN NOT BE JUST ONE WAY!!!Success is as worthless as a wrapper around the chocolate, preserving the hard work, dedication and emotions. But will you buy a chocolate without wrapper?Community <=> 2 or more people pretend to be having same beliefs but with their own selfish intent.Having faith in GOD and practicing a religion are two completely different things and they should not be mixed up.If you feel you are lucky or unlucky then you are metally unprepared to face situations.Number of mistakes made is directly proportional to the number of dependencies.One is under mind less leadership if political status becomes greater than martyrdom, and useless leadership if safety of people becomes tradable entityFIRST impression is the LEAST impressionIts nice to be pushed around by people, atleast you come to know who is pushing you aroundBefore practicing any religion one should be clear that Religions are not the Paths laid by GOD towards Humans, but they are the Paths Laid by Humans towards GOD. So there are as many religions as the number of human being ever been, are and will be in this world.Past is never perfect and future is never certainBrighter the lights in the background darker u appear, same applies to success, intelligance, patience, politeness, sensibility..and so onIt is said that when u pray, ur heart should be genuine, which is possible only when one is helpless otherwise its just the ritual

    Success is not what others define, it is what you define… Failure is part of success, not success in it self….

    Here are few of thoughts that grew me and grew from me :“I did what I felt was right at that time”- Inspector Kandelkar in ‘Satya’ when giving explanation on the theatre incident.“I wont do what others can do. If they can do it, let them do it.”- Mira Nair in an interview to a question why she doesn’t accept the producers with normal scripts.“I don’t believe that God does not exist, I know for sure”- Osho“The hardest thing to do is to face boredom”- kmk“Walking, just walkSitting, just sitAbove all, dont wobble”- Zen“I would rather die than to do something which I am not interested in.”- kmk, Osho, RGV.“Fuck becomes the most profound word if God is not in the dictionary.”- Osho“Everything is the way it is, Everything happens the way it happens.So expecting anything or regreting anything is futile.”- Anyone’s understanding who has marbles.“Is it not better to fall into the hands of a murderer than into the dreams of a lustful woman? And just look at these men: their eye saith it—they know nothing better on earth than to lie with a woman.Filth is at the bottom of their souls; and alas! if their filth hath still spirit in it!”- Thus spake zarathustra.“Hahaha….. Hahaha….. Hahaha….. Hahaha….. Hahaha….. Hahaha….. Hahaha….. Hahaha….. I am laughing, an uproarious laugh, for no reason at all, a belly laughter, forgetting there is a thing exists which is called the world, just laughing.I am suddenly aware of why I am laughing and found a reason I was laughing at the cosmic joke that existence existsThe whole universe is existing without any reason, everything is perfectly imperfect and well managed by none, thus this should be the greatest joke that I’ve ever laughed at.”- kmk

    Hi ramu, This is my share of thoughts :"There is no such things like reality and the real world. Nothing is aboslute. Your worst enemy\’s face could be my best freind\’s face." – The Monk who sold his ferrari, Robin sharma."In the world even the best things are worthless without those whorepresent them: those representers, the people call great men." "Little, do the people understand what is great- that is to say,the creating agency. But they have a taste for all representers andactors of great things." "Around the devisers of new values revolveth the world:- invisibly itrevolveth. But around the actors revolve the people and the glory:such is the course of things."- Fredrik nietzche. [Thus spake zarathushtra]"Everything is good..everything. Man is unhappy because he doesn\’t know he is happy. It\’s only that..thats all,thats all!! If anyone finds out, he ll become happy at once,that minute" -Fedor Dostoevsky."A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns" – Don corelone [the godfather,Puzo]"Don\’t let others know what you think" – Don corelone"It\’s queer how out of touch with truth women are. They live in a world of their own, and there has never been anything like it and never can be. It is too beautiful altogether and if they were to set it up,it would go to pieces before the first sunset." – Heart of Darkness,Joseph conrad.A monk asked " what is buddha?"The msater said "who are you..?" – Joshu"This is the time.This is the place.this is the vastness.right here is paradise.always,always.." – Byron katie."The public is like women. Women prefer to get ruled by powerful men than putting their control over weak men." – Mein kamph, Adolph hitler.You don\’t need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen,simply not even wait,be quiet stil and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you unmasked.It has no choice,it will roll in ecstasy at your feet" – Franz kafka."My surprised reached a climax when i found incidentally that he[sherlock holmes] was ignorant of the copernicus theoiry and of the composition of the solar system. He [holmes] explained – "I consider that a man\’s brain originally is like a little empty attic and you have to stock it with such furnitures as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumbers of every sort that he comes across.So that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things.So that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon that.Now the skillfull workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain attic. he has nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of there he has a large assortment and all in the most perfect order. It\’s of high importance,therefore not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones..You say that we go round the sun.If we went round the moon,it wouldn\’t make a pennyworth of difference to me or to my work" – Sherlock Homes, \’The study in scarlet\’, Arthur Conan Doyle."Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values" – Ayn rand."You talked about the first principle again,but i still don\’t know what it is " – I said to suzuki,"I don\’t know" he said "is the first principle" – Shunryu suzuki."You are the truth from foot to brow,now what else would you like to know ?" -RUMI.Ayn rand\’s objectivist philosophy contains a lot of \’should\’. Should destructs freedom and thus makes \’individualism\’ impossible – Vaishak Nambiar….[he he]Thanks…with Love…vaishak……

  28. raj says:

    Your new section “Thoughts that grew me” is interesting. The moment I read it, the following words of great thinker or rather ‘anti-thinker’ U.G.Krishnamurti came to my mind. —raj goswami “Thought creates frontiers everywhere. That\’s all it can do. …it is thought that has created the world; and you draw lines on this planet, "This is my country, that is your country". So how can there be unity between two countries? The very thing that is creating the frontiers and differences cannot be the means to bridge the different viewpoints. It is an exercise in futility. The human thinking is born out of some sort of neurological defect in the human body. Therefore anything that is born out of human thinking is destructive. All our experiences, spiritual or otherwise, are the basic cause of our suffering…. The body is not interested in anything that you are interested in. That is the battle that is going on all the time… There seems to be no way out…. Everything that is born out of thought, every discovery you have made so far is used for destructive purposes. Every invention of ours, every discovery of ours is pushing us in the direction of total annihilation of the human species. Boredom is a bottomless pit. As long as you think that there is something more interesting, more purposeful, more meaningful to do than what you are actually doing, you have no way of freeing yourself from boredom. When the movement in the direction of becoming something other than what you are isn\’t there any more, you are not in conflict with yourself.”

  46. Satyajit says:

    Exact opposite of this view by Steve Mallory in fountain head "I often think that he’s the only one of us who’s achieved immortality. I don’t mean in the sense of fame and I don’t mean that he won’t die some day. But he’s living it. I think he is what the conception really means. You know how people long to be eternal. But they die with every day that passes. When you meet them, they’re not what you met last. In any given hour, they kill some part of themselves. They change, they deny, they contradict–and they call it growth. At the end there’s nothing left, nothing unrevered or unbetrayed; as if there had never been any entity, only a succession of adjectives fading in and out on an unformed mass. How do they expect a permanence which they have never held for a single moment? But Howard–one can imagine him existing forever.”

    Oh Shit – How come I missed quoting Geroge Carlin eh (one of my favs)? My Bad – here they come – a) Always do whatever\’s next. b) Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity. c) Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac? d) "I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence? e) If it\’s true that our species is alone in the universe, then I\’d have to say the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little. f) One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor. g) Religion is just mind control. and so on 😀

    i honestly have to say most of your blogs are pretty interesting and few of your reactions to reactions are hillarious. I truly think u r a good director. I would like to know your views about clint eastwood\’s dirty harry series ( Dirty Harry (1971) Magnum Force (1973) The Enforcer (1976) Sudden Impact (1983) The Dead Pool (1988)). I would like to know which are your top 10 fav. movies (one u are not accociated with). I know how u hate when people suggest something to you, but being a indian(we have opinion about everything)- have to suggest one line to u…. it\’s from dirty harry….one of my fav. movie–I know what you\’re thinking — "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I\’ve kinda lost track myself. But, being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow your head clean off, you\’ve got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

    Amazing quotes:———————-The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.Those who know how to think need no teachers.Anger and intolerance are the twin enemies of correct understanding.To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.Fear has its use but cowardice has none.In a gentle way, you can shake the world.Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.There is more to life than increasing its speed.RGV – If you can tell whose quotes were all of the above – 100 marks…..

  61. Arun says:

    I just jot down thoughts when it occurs to me. Here are some – 1) The premise of life or the reason/meaning of life is zero – just a self sustaining/self serving purpose. Living life is a reaction to this unyielding despair over finding meaning in life.2) Religion is an abstract language of the heart that describes science. Vice versa, science is a validater of religion and is a descriptive language of the mind. The purpose of these languages is to connect to this moment of existence.3) Life is a paradox, if you let yourself get swayed by the elixir of victory, you will feel the hurt of sorrow, it is inevitable. Results are not in your hands, only the actions.4) Once can manage a person on attitude issues, not on ability.5) The only way to survive the awareness of existence is to be totally immersed in it (life).6) When the feeling that everyone is a traveller in life "sinks in", you become a player in life.7) Religion is interpretation of Truth.8) Science/non-believers interpret God/Faith as a psychological balancing act to being comfortable with the thought that "I Exist".9) Life is a mystery that will never be solved and that is the way it is mean to be unless we accept that beyond matter and space there is nothing else. If we do accept and we prove everything in life to this fact then where is growth? At a finite point everything will end. Life will exist as long as the question exists and drives it, if there is no question maybe it will cease.10) Making a meaning of your moment of existence is a basic choice from which there is no escape. Basic rule of life is you have to make a meaning of it otherwise there is nothing.11) Birth and death, you always need 2 extremes to comprehend anything. Without birth and death, there is no concept of the comprehension of this moment of existence called life.12) Judgements and opinions cloud observation of reality.Believing that coincidences are lucky is rational and believing that coincidences don\’t exist and is meant to be is faith. Rational and faith are 2 ways of realizing or looking at the same thing.13) Faith helps you handle infinity better and keep better psychological balance for those who are weak mentally. It helps them grow further as infinity is truly encompassed into absolute certainity and their stable mind can grow to see greater visions. Non-believers are mentally stronger but they cannot grow as much as they are limited by the infinity their mind can see and comprehend. Non-believers won\’t try out too many things their mind cannot see. Believers are also restricted by beliefs. Both agree on morals. It is a choice and rationally faith or rather spirituality is the better choice.Well, what if there is a context beyond faith and rationality, maybe we will keep evolving to different contexts that maintain a state of conflict for maintaining this moment of existence.Spirituality, science and faith are guesses on the unknown, we can\’t live without thinking of this as we are inevitably dragged to this with the events in life. How long can we choose to ignore? Life is about believing and living. It is bigger then all these issues and you have to be in some group.14) Meaning is outside by definition. A pen can do what it\’s designed to do but it means different things to different people.15) Education is about shaping thinking. A profession is a mode of thinking.16) You have to be twice the man to lead.

    Ramu,One of the nicest persons from this blog seems to have visited my personal blog ( The title of my blog is something that keeps me, always, motivated, determined and fired up. That person questioned me the reason for not mentioning that quote here. Respecting that person’s suggestion, here it goes…“Never expect things to happen. Struggle to make them happen”. On a closing note, let me share something that is stuck on my wall here…“10% of life is made up of what happens to you.90% of life is decided by how you react…”
