Random thoughts!

Many times when reading books, magazines ,newspapers or mails from friends etc we come across certain  words, sentences or incidents which  remain etched in our memory .These words, sayings or  incidents may not in any way affect  your thoughts or actions but  you find them amusing, thought provoking  and interesting that you feel like sharing them with others. I am jotting  down some  such collections  which I have  read from various sources.

1  You may have seen this before, but it is still awesome - I did not know this.
2-   Thought provoking
       Work for  a CAUSE
            Not  APPLAUSE
         Live life  to EXPRESS
            Not  to   IMPRESS
          Don't try to make your 
         presence NOTICED just try
     to make your absence  FELT.

3    Will make you laugh

 Lawyers should never ask grandmas a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer!

In a trial, a small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, an elderly grandmother to the stand He approached her  and asked, ," you know me?The old lady replied,"Why,yes I know you Mr. Williams. I know you were a young boy and frankly you are a big disappointment to me...You lie.You cheat your wife.You manipulate people and talk against them behind their back,You think you are a big shot when you don't even have the brains to realise that you never will  amount to push more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes I know you."

 The lawyer was stunned! Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know the defence attorney (the opponent's lawyer)?" 

She again replied, "Why, yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster. He's lazy, bigoted, and has a  drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone  and his law practice is one of the worst in the state. Not to  mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of  them was your wife. ..Yes I know him."   The Defence Attorney nearly  died.

The judge asked both lawyers to approach the bench and in a quiet  voice said: "If either of you rascals asks her if she knows me,  I'll send you to jail for contempt of court !!!

                              When he has no money he eats vegetables

                  When he has money he eats vegetables in a fine restaurant

                           When he is without money, he rides bicycle to work; 

                              When he has money, he rides bicycle to exercise.

When he is without money, he walks to eat food 


When he has money, he walks to burn food.

When he is without money,he rides a bicycle to work 

When he has money,he rides a bicycle to exercise

When he is without money he wishes to get married

When he has money,he wishes to get divorced;

When he is without money,his wife becomes secretary,

when he has money ,his secretary becomes his wife

When he has no money, he acts like a rich man

When he has money,he acts like a pauper;

 He says share market is bad;but keeps speculating

He says money is bad, but keeps on craving for it;

He says high positions are lonely but he keeps struggling for that


He says gambling &drinking is bad,but keeps on indulging in that.

He never means what he says; and never says what he means !

He simply can't tell a simple truth!!
