    Much has been said of Marx lately, but I have to confess to some degree of hero worship here. I have always remained in awe of his material, most of which encapsulates concepts that were often overlooked by others.

    He has been a huge influence on my life, even from an early age, I found myself acting like him, using his material, and following his line of thinking. No matter what event, what situation I found myself in, I often find myself quoting him, using his words, his deliverance, his manner of speaking, the man was priceless.

    I would like to share with the sangat some of his quotes:-

    The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

    She got her looks from her father. He's a plastic surgeon.

    I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.

    Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

    When I saw the title, my first thought was Karl ?or Groucho?

    Read the other thread and now I've been illuminated.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
