I came across the following wisdom from one of the revered religious Gurus of India, Swamy Paramahansa Yogananda and twisted it a little to fit my humor.
Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become — Paramahansa Yogananda.

Hatred is a state of insolvency towards compassion.
One can not be hateful towards a hater, precisely for this. One has to be totally devoid of compassion, to be able to hate a hater. A hater makes one a hater. One can’t afford to be a hater, if one is not. Haters win by hatred, not by compassion. Love is the absence of cruelty. Hatred is the absence of compassion. Cruelty and hatred live together. Love and compassion live together. Live away from hatred and haters. Seek compassion and love. More…
You become what the world doesn’t need from you !
The reason why I am a scientist is such a thing, it didn’t need science from me.
You become lovely because the world doesn’t need it from you. It remains with you.
The world doesn’t need terror, it remains with some people, they come and blast us off.
If you do not take it slow, you have to take it fast, all at once.
My girl friend hates me all at once, 😛 as I refuse to take hatred at a slower rate.
Learning by the skimp ! Because learning by the ocean is like swimming the ocean from one side to the another.
One can learn only by seeing the quantum. And that is to say to not see anything to begin with. The difference is in the fact that not seeing something is a negation. But seeing something hardly enough, less than what we even perceive, materializes in a long enough time. We are therefore not to judge what we are going to see. We can judge ignorance and agree to live with it. But we can let our ignorance recede by making suitable attempts at learning from the ocean of knowledge, tiny pebbles, thats possible only when we have prepared ourselves to realize our pedestal is uncertain. But if a stride is not taken its certainly dark. If a stride is taken the uncertainty is uncertain. We tilt the balance of our chances for knowledge and ignorance by our own action. To persevere by a little amount, and hoping to get a sizable chunk at the end of the decade is what most people who have excelled would swear.
1. Aristotle Fallacy; A notion that objects need force for their movement. It contradicts the idea of inertia. Newton corrected this by introducing the first law, things continue in their state of motion, a quality called as inertia, without requiring force and the motion changes due to application of force.
2. Earth is flat; that there is a boundary where you fall off its edge. [I am not going to explain or tell you how and when we found this was a horrendously hilarious and misleading notion we had. But it might have been used in the past by parents to discipline their teen-age kids. Don’t go out, you will fall off earth. That would have kept them in check.]
3. Rotational Dynamics; Earth is accelerating in a near circle in addition to about itself, so additional forces are acting that changes our observation about the world. Newton tried to understand this (not successful) in his last days, by rotating a bucket full of water, his laws could not explain the effects observed. His laws needed to be modified slightly. The same thing makes objects feel weightless by a given amount if they are accelerating towards a gravitational field (eg merry go round, satellites) This is the basis of many works of Einstein. First came Mach’s Principle which says observations made from objects that are accelerating in circular paths are to be corrected by fixing frames of references to stars that are so far away that the rotational motion is neglected. [if you shake your head while looking at stars and shake your head by looking at nearby objects such as a light post, evidently the light post shakes more and the stars less]. This helps in correcting observed phenomena from earth. Earth moves at 30 kms/second wrt sun … More…
