I was readin Nautankeys and Sindhu's posts on their fav quotes and was reminded of the time I used to write down every quote I liked in my notebook. Usually the ones I used to write down were from the Learn your English column in the Hindu. At the end of the column they have these quotes of famous people and I used to look forward to tuesdays to read that column. And also the quotes on the second page of the Readers Digest. I regularly read them even now, but don write them down in my notebook like i used to. I guess I went through that phase.

I have gone through tons of different phases like this. But nothing became a long term thing. When I hear people say that they have been collecting stamps/ coins since they were 7 or somethin, I really get impressed. That must be really some kind of involvement/ passion/ interest whatever you call it. The only thing I have been doing regularly all these years is to read the entire newspaper in the morning before starting off on other things. I dont think I can ever let go of that!
