Interesting Quote, Pseudo-variants and Provoking Phrases of the day

Today’s Inspirational Quote:

“Be who you are and say what you feel,

because those who mind don’t matter,

and those who matter don’t mind.”

— Bernard M. Baruch

Recently I read a variant / pseudo version of the above phrase and I was thinking – LOL ! 🙂

  • Poke Fun At
    Meaning: 
    Making fun of something or someone; ridicule.

    When you lose your originality, you search the web.  When your borrowed phrases exhaust and your plagiarism is exposed, one chooses to get back at people by twisting, twirling, modifying, stretching, shortening Quotes to misuse, abuse and put to disuse in order to Poke Fun At people who reveal your Truth but hold back due to professional secrecy. 

  • Elephant in the Room
    Meaning: 
    Ignoring a large, obvious problem or failing to address an issue that stands out in a major way.

    People who skirt, deflect and avoid issues while taking stances which are aggressive, abrasive and false pretenses but when they are exposed, their falsehood is open they still do not have the courage to see the Elephant in the room and behave like blind, deaf, mute people showing off their ‘Handicap'(as in Golf) to save the Facepalm moments. 

  • Beating Around the Bush
  • Meaning: 
  • Someone who is beating around the bush is someone who avoids the main point.
  • This is Self-Explnatory.

The people I am talking about have three distinct qualities.

First, they are willing to disagree ferociously, but talk civilly, (writing blasphemously with full blown profanity when challenged) about nearly every meaningful subject: religion, abortion, immigration, the nature of consciousness.

Second, in an age in which popular feelings about the way things ought to be often override facts about the way things actually are, each is determined to resist parroting what’s politically convenient using memory of convenience, logic of convenience and in the end wanting to make you see their TRUTH as your truth. Some of them are Pseudo-intellectuals and at last count someone said there are 150 of them in Delhi alone who are peddling some media house plan asking for Rs.5 Crores and finally willing to settle for as little as Rs. 5000 !

And third, some have paid for this commitment by being purged from institutions that have become increasingly hostile to unorthodox thought — and have found receptive audiences elsewhere – which includes Commies, pseudo-Marxists, pseudo Nihilists, Maoists and Wayfarers who wish to overthrow the government by hook or crook – they are seditionists who indoctrinate people into being brainwashed under the influence of Drugs and fake Love.

Interesting day. Great Gyan from WhatsApp on my Walks and some great phrases I learnt.

I came across this Brilliant Quote by Nobel laureate ‘Desmond Tutu’ which read..

“When the Missionaries came to #Africa they had the #Bible and we had the Land.
They said ‘Let us Pray.’
We Closed our eyes.
When we opened them, we had the Bible and they had the land…

Like wise,
When ‘Facebook & WhatsApp’ Came,
they had the ‘Internet’ and we had the Freedom.

They said it’s free.
We closed our eyes.

When we opened them, we had the #Facebook #WhatsApp and they had our Freedom..!!”

It is rightly said, “When anything is free for YOU, Your freedom will be the Price..🕯

 

Think…………………  Thank you Amarendra for sharing.

This one is wonderful and is from my Doc.

Plz remember what these
few organs are afraid of ?

Kidney:
Afraid to stay up all night.
Stomach:
Afraid of the cold food.
Lungs:
Afraid of smoke.
Liver:
Afraid of fatty stuff.
Heart:
Afraid of salty food.
Pancreas:
Afraid of big eating.
Intestines: .. Afraid of
eating seafood indiscriminately.
Eyes: .. Afraid of
mobiles & computers screens.
Gallbladder:
Afraid of not eating breakfast.

So pls take real good care of yourself !
Because spare parts may not fit.
They are very expensive….
& not necessarily available in stock !
🙏

Thank you Doc. I shall be careful.

And now some phrases I came across today.

  1. Short End of the Stick
    Meaning:
    Getting the bad end of a deal, or receiving the least desirable outcome from something.

    That’s a Nasty one! One never should face this in life. I wish everyone well and may God keep you away from having a bad deal or receiving the least desirable outcome.  May you be safe and hail and hearty and healthy.

  2. Quality Time
    Meaning: 
    Spending time with another to strengthen the relationship.

    Sounds impossible in this virtual world NO?  A speaker on Youtube was saying we should not see our smartphone messages within 1 hour of waking up.  I was raised in the Blackberry age when I had to immediately respond at all hours for emergencies, crises – and I somehow have a carry over effect, a baggage of this old habit even after retirement and I must follow what this speaker says. NO?

  3. Under the Weather
    Meaning: 
    Not feeling well, in health or mood

    That is another nasty one today. But fortunately, my Doc sent me the above advice to take care of things I otherwise take lightly or ignore.  If we take care of our body, and its vital organs by excercising self control and feeding it what is good for it – exercise and maintain health – going under the weather will remain a phrase. I wish best of health for all readers and all others.
