Courage and Determination. Herbs

“Courage doesn't always roar.  Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says ‘I'll try again tomorrow’…” 
- Mary Anne Radmacher -

“You lose half the battle when you lose faith”
- My sister, though she may have gotten it from elsewhere! -

“Any idiot can fail. To be truly great, dare to fail big, get up and face the world and try again and again till you get it right”  
- I think it’s from a movie, the title of which escapes me right now :P. Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Durnst, I think...-

“Success : 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”
-Thomas Edison -




Talking of courage, guess who tried making white sauce WITHOUT garlic? Hehe... turned out pretty decent though, thanks to the oregano, basil n bay leaf. And boy do basil and bay leaf have a BOLD taste. Completely unlike Western spices, but it's not nice to stereotype anyone or anything, even if it's just a bunch of herbs, so pretend I didn't say that, aite? ;)


Ooh-kay... too much talk about dried up leaves and stuff sprouting from the groundSleep deprivation talking here...


Good night, all. Am gonna eat and sleep and hopefully wake up in time to study :)

it's that shoe movie, isn't it? the one with the knife while he's running on the treadmill and the dead father... susan sarandon was his mum, yeah? kirsten durnst is the flight attendant and she keeps telling him about the exit he shouldn't miss?

i'm not telling you the title O:-)

luv,
Vi

Best wishes to you.

studying for an exam, looks like you could do with loads of courage & determination yourself!

;)

I love the quotes! Edison is like the epitome of determination, isn't he? :D But I, being my lazy self, always quote Einstein: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."... hence I would never have invented the lightbulb! ;) lol

Good luck with the exams you're studying for, Losh! :D

So true :D and I love it :P

Ha ha, you made white sauce, with no garlic? wonder how it tasted?
All the best for your exams, you'll do good.

Cheers!

Rajat:
Hehe... the colours perhaps? :)

Vi:
Thank you for the sort-of-summary of the movie. In case you don't get it there's a LOT of sarcasm in the air here :P CB!

Rainfield:
Nope, regular classes :) Thank you anyway!

doc:
thanks, but it's regular class, but courage and determination most needed for the continuous assesments i have here :)

Chavie:
Glad you like them...Edison definitely wasn't one to give up and love the Einstein quote... that man's sense of humour is underrated :D

Thanks for the wishes!

GG:
Yep, good movie too, if only I could recall the name of it!

Haha... my studying's almost over for this sem, but thanks for the wishes nyways ;)

Me-shak:
That quote reminds me of a few loved ones, so it's pretty meaningful to me :)

Wasn't poisonous or anything, but Italian food without garlic's like Asian food without chilli... edible, but not quite there ;)

But we ate it up anyway! Maybe it was the hunger... lol!
