Quotes to start my week

“Far better it is to dare mighty things to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered with failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that know not victory or defeat.”

– Theodore Roosevelt. Thanks to – WorkHappy.net.

“They are not going to look at how hard you fall – they are going to look at how well you can get back up.”

– Vivek Makhija, my class-mate and fellow team (debate) member in Bishop’s (1994), needless to say we won.

    These quotes are just so eloquent.
    esp the second one.
    I am sure the debate would have been quite a piece to attend.

  2. Vivek Makhija says:


    I just googled myself and found this…posting.

    First of all, the quote can hardly be attributed to me.

    More importantly..just wanted to say that I am very impressed with what you have set out to do..takes courage and conviction.

    Good luck…and I will definitely drop by when I am in India next time.

    Hey, I was googling Vivek Makhija’s name.. Coz its his birthday tomorrow and I have lost contact with him, but I wanted to shock him with a birthday wish… If you have his email address, it would be great if you could pass it on to me. I’m his friend from a loong time ago. Thanks.
    PS. I noticed that you might be in Seattle. True?
