3 days 3 quotes…

I’ve been nominated to the 3 day 3 quote challenge by Kritika. Thank you for the nomination, and I’ll try to keep to my promise regarding this one! 😉

Today’s quotes

  1. “The main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live.”
    George Carlin
  2. “In a perfect world, you could fuck people without giving them a piece of your heart. And every glittering kiss and every touch of flesh is another shard of heart you’ll never see again.”
    Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders
  3. “Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that’s not why we do it.”

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  4. I think the second quote is from someone in a parallel universe. Isn’t the hookup culture the embodiment of not giving others a piece of one’s heart? Isn’t that why everyone’s crying their eyes out over heartbreak? Someone’s world is perfect.

    • True, though the hookup culture is more a sign of no piece of heart left to give, I feel…

      • My argument is that it was never offered in the first place. I am a romantic at heart but these days, I’ve become a cynic.

        Lt Cdr Data: “Captain, sensors are not detecting a sense of humour.”

        Technically, I would need one to write that. How’s your day going, Oscar Wilde?

      • Let’s not argue over hearts ungiven….
        When marriage is but a papered live-in.

      • My day passed by quickly, like a jagged little pill. Hospital visits, et cetera. I’m fine though. Papered live in … That’s catchy. x
