A fact of life

“The best way to survive in this world is not to let yourself be overpowered by emotions, sentiments, temptations and love coz once you give in, it’s very difficult to come back to your normal self. That’s the only way you can maintain the sanity of your mind.”

a fan of gautama buddha?

shruti said...

@kochuthresiamma- Fan or not , I can't say!
But those lines were written by me when i strongly felt that way- certain emotions n temptations can be so overpowering on the psyche that one can lose one's normal self & sanity!!
Do u agree or disagree??

Well, on a serious note, you are perfectly right. But then again it all depends on what kinds of emotions, sentiments, temptations you are dealing with and for what (or whom). We lose sanity if the above mentioned things are not constructive. Don't you think?

P.S. This looks like an antithesis of your latest post...lol... :-)

no. i dont agree with you - escapism is what u suggest. better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

Shruti said...

@karthik- U seem to be knowin all the famous quotes spl of Wilde :P

yeah i did mention that its a contradiction to dis one..

U r rite.. sometimes it all depends :)

Shruti said...

@kochuthresiamma- Maybe at that particular moment i was feelin all that, as a result of which those lines were jotted down ...
