The following quotations are given by this personality
“The world's most sensible person and the biggest idiot both stay within us. The worst part is, you can't even tell who is who.”
“Life is not to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up? It’s ok, bunk a few classes, goof up a few interviews, fall in love. We are people, not programmed devices.”
“Stupid people go to college but"smart people own them"....”
“I’ve told you the four thunderstorms – disappointment, frustration, unfairness and isolation. You cannot avoid them, as like the monsoon they will come into your life at regular intervals. You just need to keep the raincoat handy to not let the spark die” http://www.chetanbhagat.com/about/
