Forever trust in who we are, And nothing else matters - Metallica

18 Till I Die - Bryan Adams

Work is a lousy way to earn a living - a poster

I Love work. It gives me something to do between weekends - another poster

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow!! What a ride! - Lifted from Prashant's signature

Normal is ........ getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it. - Ellen DeGeneres (I saw it in a blog)

If u dont think out of the box, u'll remain in the box - Heard from an IISC prof

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is. - Albert Einstein

Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us - Elizabeth's 3rd sister Mary in Pride 'n Prejudice

Nothing is more deceitful, than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast - Mr. Darcy in Pride 'n Prejudice

I hate the way you talk to me. And the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots. And the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick. It even makes me rhyme. I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh. Even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you're not around. And the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all - Katarina Stratford (Julia Stiles) reading a poem obviously for Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) in the climax of 10 Things I Hate About You after they had a fight

Patrick : I told you, you may have a concussion.
Katarina : You don't care if I never wake up.
Patrick : Sure I do!
Katarina : Why?
Patrick : Well, then because I'd have to start taking out girls who actually like me.
Katarina : Like you could find one.
Patrick : Oh, see that there! Who needs affection when I have blind hatred? - 10 Things I Hate About You

I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible. - Harry (Billy Crystal) to Sally (Meg Ryan) in Harry Met Sally

You see? That is just like you, Harry. You say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you! And I hate you, Harry. I really hate you... - Sally's reply in Harry Met Sally

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius: commander of the armies of the North, general of the Felix legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife, and I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next - Russel Crowe in Gladiator

Don't think you are, know you are. Come on! Stop trying to hit me and hit me - Morphius (Lawrence Fishbourne) to Neo (Keanu Reeves) in the famouos training scene of Matrix

If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain - Morphius to Neo in Matrix

I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure. - Agent Smith to Morpheus in Matrix

Be patient till the last. Romans, countrymen, and lovers! hear me for my cause, and be silent, that you may hear: believe me for mine honour, and have respect to mine honour, that you may believe: censure me in your wisdom, and awake your senses, that you may the better judge. If there be any in this assembly, any dear friend of Caesar's, to him I say, that Brutus' love to Caesar was no less than his. If then that friend demand why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer: Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men? As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I slew him. There is tears for his love; joy for his fortune; honour for his valour; and death for his ambition. Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so rude that would not be a Roan? If any, speak; for him have I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? If any, speak; for him have I offended. I pause for a reply - Brutus to the mob in Julius Ceasar, immediately before the famous speech of Mark Anthony

FRIENDS! ROMANS! COUNTRYMEN! LEND ME YOUR EARS! I COME HERE TO BURY CEASAR, NOT TO PRAISE HIM......... The evil the men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones; So let it me with Caesar. The noble Brutus Hath told you Caesar was ambitious: If it were so, it was a grievous fault; And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it. Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest, - For Brutus is an honourable man; So are they all, all honourable men,- Come I to speak in Caesar's funeral. He was my friend, faithful and just to me: But Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is an honourable man. He hath brought many captives home to Rome, Who's ransoms did the general coffers fill: Did this in Caesar seem ambitious? When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept: Ambition should be made of sterner stuff: Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And Brutus is an honourable man. You all did see that on the Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown, Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition? Yet Brutus say he was ambitious; And, sure, he is an honourable man. I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke, But here I am to speak what I do know. You all did love him once,- not without cause: What cause withholds you, then, to mourn for him? O judgment, thou art fled to brutish beasts, And men have lost their reason!-Bear with me: My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, And I must pause till it come back to me. - Mark Anthony's famous speech in Julius Ceasar

What's in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet - Juliet in Romeo 'n Juliet

Green Goblin: Spider-Man. This is why only fools are heroes - because you never know when some lunatic will come along with a sadistic choice. Let die the woman you love... or suffer the little children. Make your choice, Spider-Man, and see how a hero is rewarded.
Spider-Man: Don't do it, Goblin.
Green Goblin: We are who we choose to be... now, CHOOSE .... (after he swings Spiderman into a destroyed building, droping a bomb, which injurs Spiderman fatally, and entering the scene in his glider) ... Misery, Misery, Misery, that's all what you've chosen. I offer you friendship and you spat in my face. ... (after he beats Spider-Man up, almost knocking him unconcious, Spiderman shoots his web but Green Goblin Stops him) ... You spun your last web Spider-Man, if you have not been so selfish your little girlfriend's death would have been quick and painless but now you really pissed me off, I'm gonna finish her, nice... and slow - Spiderman

This guy, Flash Thompson, he probably deserved what happened. But just because you can beat him up doesn't give you the right to. Remember, with great power, comes great responsibility - Uncle Ben in Spiderman

Green Goblin: Spider-Man is all but invincible; but Parker, we can destroy him.
Norman Osborn: I can't.
Green Goblin: Betrayal must not be countenanced. Parker must be educated.
Norman Osborn: What do I do?
Green Goblin: Instruct him in the matters of loss and pain. Make him suffer, make him wish he were dead.
Norman Osborn: Yes?
Green Goblin: And then grant his wish.
Norman Osborn: But how?
Green Goblin: The cunning warrior attacks neither body nor mind.
Norman Osborn: TELL ME HOW.
Green Goblin: The HEART, Osborn. First, we attack his heart. - Spiderman

Green Goblin: You're an amazing creature, Spider-Man. You and I are not so different.
Spider-Man: I'm not like you. You're a murderer.
Green Goblin: Well, to each, his own. I chose my path, you chose the way of the hero. And they found you amusing for a while, the people of this city. But the one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually they will hate you. Why bother?
Spider-Man: Because it's right.
Green Goblin: [slaps Spidey on the head] Here's the real truth. There are eight million people in this city. And those teeming masses exist for the sole purpose of lifting the few exceptional people onto their shoulders. You, me? We're exceptional. I could squash you like a bug right now, but I'm offering you a chance. Join me! Imagine what we could accomplish together... what we could create. Or we could destroy! Cause the deaths of countless innocents in selfish battle again and again and again until we're both dead! Is that what you want? Think about it, hero! - Spiderman

Being brilliant's not enough, young man. You have to work hard. Intelligence is not a privilege, it's a gift, and you use it for the good of mankind. - Dr Octavius to Peter Parker in Spiderman 2

Councillor Dillard : However, we ask if there has been word from the Nebuchadnezzar?
Lock : No, councillor, no word. Nothing.
Councillor West : Then we request a ship be dispatched to ascertain the fate of the One.
Lock : I wish it were possible, Councillor, but I do not believe our defense can suffer the loss of another ship.
Councillor West : It will Commander, if it must.
Lock : But it could take a single ship days to find the Nebuchadnezzar.
Councillor Dillard : Then send two.
Lock : This is insane!
Councillor Hamann : Careful, Commander.
Lock : Forgive my frustration, councillors, I wish I was able to comprehend the Council's choice on this matter.
Councillor West : Comprehension is not a requisite of cooperation. - Matrix Reloaded

Boss: ... This mission is not going to be easy.
Secret Agent : ... Life never is...
[... later ...]
Boss: ... You think you are ready for another one?
Secret Agent: Thinking ... is such a waste of time. - CBZ Extreme Ad

Buddy Kane: It's a pleasure.
Lester Burnham: Oh, we've met before, actually. This thing last year, Christmas at the Sheraton...
Buddy Kane: [pretends to remember] Oh yeah, yes...
Lester Burnham: It's OK, I wouldn't remember me either. - American Beauty

Carolyn Burnham: Don't you mess with me, mister, or I'll divorce you so fast it'll make your head spin!
Lester Burnham: On what grounds? I'm not a drunk, I don't f**k other women, I've never hit you, I don't mistreat you... I don't even try to touch you since you've made it so abundantly clear how unnecessary you consider me to be! But I did support you when you got your license, and some people might think that entitles me to half of what's yours. So, turn off the light when you come to bed!
[... later narrating ...]
It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself. - American Beauty

Jason Bourne: Who has a safety deposit box full of... money and six passports and a gun? Who has a bank account number in their hip? I come in here, and the first thing I'm doing is I'm catching the sightlines and looking for an exit.
Marie: I see the exit sign, too, I'm not worried. I mean, you were shot. People do all kinds of weird and amazing stuff when they are scared.
Jason Bourne: I can tell you the license plate numbers of all six cars outside. I can tell you that our waitress is left-handed and the guy sitting up at the counter weighs two hundred fifteen pounds and knows how to handle himself. I know the best place to look for a gun is the cab of the gray truck outside, and at this altitude, I can run flat out for a half mile before my hands start shaking. Now why would I know that? How can I know that and not know who I am? - Bourne Identity


Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
So close no matter how far. Couldn't be much more from the heart. Forever trusting who we are. And nothing else matters.
Never opened myself this way. Life is ours, we live it our way. All these words I don't just say. And nothing else matters.
Trust I seek and I find in you. Every day for us something new. Open mind for a different view. And nothing else matters.
Never cared for what they do. Never cared for what they know. But I know.
So close no matter how far. Couldn't be much more from the heart. Forever trusting who we are. And nothing else matters.
Never cared for what they do. Never cared for what they know. But I know.
Never opened myself this way. Life is ours, we live it our way. All these words I don't just say. And nothing else matters.
Trust I seek and I find in you. Every day for us something new. Open mind for a different view. And nothing else matters.
Never cared for what they say. Never cared for games they play. Never cared for what they do. Never cared for what they know. And I know.
So close no matter how far. Couldn't be much more from the heart. Forever trusting who we are. No nothing else matters.

Summer of 69 - Bryan Adams
I got my first real six-string. Bought it at the five-and-dime. Played it till my fingers bleed. It was the summer of '69.
Me and some guys from school. Had a band and we tried real hard. Jimmy quit and Jody got married. I shoulda known we'd never get far.
Oh when I look back now. That summer seemed to last forever. And if I had the choice. Ya - I'd always wanna be there. Those were the best days of my life.
Ain't no use in complainin'. When you got a job to do. Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in. And that's when I met you.
Standin' on your Mama's porch. You told me that you'd wait forever. Oh and when you held my hand. I knew that it was now or never. Those were the best days of my life ... Back in the summer of '69.
Man we were killin' time. We were young and restless. We needed to unwind. I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no.
And now the times are changin'. Look at everything that's come and gone. Sometimes when I play that old six-string. I think about ya wonder what went wrong.
Standin' on your Mama's porch. You told me it would last forever. Oh the way you held my hand. I knew that it was now or never. Those were the best days of my life ... Back in the summer of '69

Hotel California - Eagles
On a dark desert highway. Cool wind in my hair. Warm smell of colitas. Rising up through the air. Up ahead in the distance. I saw a shimmering light. My head grew heavy, and my sight grew dim. I had to stop for the night.
There she stood in the doorway. I heard the mission bell. And I was thinking to myself. This could be Heaven or this could be Hell. Then she lit up a candle. And she showed me the way. There were voices down the corridor. I thought I heard them say.
Welcome to the Hotel California. Such a lovely place. Such a lovely place ... Such a lovely face.
Plenty of room at the Hotel California. Any time of year. Any time of year ... You can find it here.
Her name is Tiffany twisted. She's got the Mercedes bends. She's got a lot of pretty, pretty boys. That she calls friends. How they dance in the courtyard. Sweet summer sweat. Some dance to remember. Some dance to forget.
So I called up the Captain. Please bring me my wine. He said. We haven't had that spirit here since 1969. And still those voices are calling from far away. Wake you up in the middle of the night. Just to hear them say.
Welcome to the Hotel California. Such a lovely Place. Such a lovely Place. Such a lovely face.
They're livin' it up at the Hotel California. What a nice surprise. What a nice surprise. Bring your alibies.
Mirrors on the ceiling. Pink champagne on ice. And she said. We are all just prisoners here. Of our own device. And in the master's chambers. They gathered for the feast. They stab it with their steely knives. But they just can't kill the beast.
Last thing I remember. I was running for the door. I had to find the passage back to the place I was before. Relax said the nightman. We are programed to recieve. You can check out any time you like. But you can never leave

I Want U To Want Me - Cheap Trick
I want you to want me. I need you to need me.
I'd love you to love me. I'm beggin' you to beg me.
I'll shine up my old brown shoes. Put on a brand new shirt.
Get home early from work. If you say that you love me!
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'.
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'.
Feeling all alone without a friend you know you feel like dying.

I'd love you to love me. I'm beggin' you to beg me.

Bachelor Boys - Cliff Richards
When I was young my father said ... son I have something to say
And what he told me I'll never forget until my dyin day.
He said son you are a bachelor boy and thats the way to stay.
Son, you be a bachelor boy until your dyin day

Son, you be a bachelor boy until your dyin day
As time goes by I propably will meet a girl and fall in love
Then Ill get married have a wife and a child and they'll be my turtle doves.
But until then I'll be a bachelor boy and thats the way I'll stay
Happy to be a bachelor boy until my dyin day.
But until then I'll be a bachelor boy and thats the way I'll stay
Happy to be a bachelor boy until my dyin day.

Turn The Page - Metallica
On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha. You can listen to the engines moanin' out it's one old song
You can think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before.
But your thoughts will soon be wanderin', the way they always do When you're ridin' 16 hours and there's nothin' much to do ...
And you don't feel much like ridin', you just wish the trip was through.
Here I am, on the road again, there I am, up on the stage. There I go, playin' star again, there I go, turn the page
So you walk into this restaurant, uh strung out from the road. And you feel the eyes upon you, as you're shakin' off the cold. You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode...
Yeah, most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can. All the same old cliche's, is it woman, is it man. And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand. Make your stand
Ah But here I am, on the road again, there I am, up on the stage. Here I go, ah playin' star again, there I go, turn the page.
Woah... Out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away. Every ounce of energy, you try and give away. As the sweat pours out your body, like the music that you play.
Later in the evenin', as you lie awake in bed With the echoes of the amplifiers, ringin' in your head. You smoke the day's last cigarette, rememberin' what she said... What she said
Yeah, and here I am, on the road again, there I am, up on that stage. Here I go, playin' star again, there I go, turn the page...
And there I go, turn that page There I go, yeah, Here I go, yeah, yeah. There I go, yeah, Here I go, yeah. Here I go-oh-o, There I go ... And I'm gone

Hello - Lionel Richie
I've been alone with you. Inside my mind. And in my dreams I've kissed your lips. A thousand times. I sometimes see you. Pass outside my door
Hello! Is it me you're looking for? I can see it in your eyes. I can see it in your smile. You're all I've ever wanted. And my arms are open wide. Because you know just what to say. And you know just what to do. And I want to tell you so much. I love you
I long to see the sunlight in your hair. And tell you time and time again. How much I care. Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow.
Hello! I've just got to let you know. Because I wonder where you are. And I wonder what you do. Are you somewhere feeling lonely? Or is someone loving you? Tell me how to win your heart. For I haven't got a clue. But let me start by saying I love you
Hello! Is it me you're looking for? Becuase I wonder where you are. And I wonder what you do. Are you somewhere feeling lonely? Or is someone loving you? Tell me how to win your heart. For I haven't got a clue. But let me start by saying. I love you
