About

I am a 36 years old guy living in Melbourne. I love reading about self-development and psychology. I enjoy researching too. This blog is my attempt to help people out through my research. 

I like reading books. These are the three books that I have enjoyed reading in recent times:

12 Rules of Life: An Antidote to Chaos 

A Gentleman in Moscow 

Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike

I am also a huge movie buff. These are the movies that I am thinking of these days:

The Bandit (1996) 

The Secret in Their Eyes (2009) 

The Hunt (2012)

I save any quotations that I like from the books that I have read. Few of them are given below: 

“Don’t let the force of an impression when it first hits you knock you off your feet; just say to it: Hold on a moment; let me see who you are and what you represent. Let me put you to the test.” Epictetus 

 


“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. “T. S. Eliot


“Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth ‘you owe me’. Just think of what a love like that can do, it lights up the whole sky.” Hafiz


“The measure of a man’s estimate of your strength is the kind of weapons he feels that he must use in order to hold you fast in a prescribed place.” Howard Thurman


“All men dream: but not equally.Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was a vanity:But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams out with open eyes, to make it possible….This I did.” T.E Lawrence
