i-TFTD #124: Rainy Day Special

i-TFTD #124: Rainy Day Special

With the Mumbai Monsoon in its full splendour, let the rain inspire a few thoughts:

#124-1. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

-Maya Angelou

#124-2. If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning.

-Frederick Douglass

#124-3. Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots.
-Frank A. Clark

#124-4. Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.
-Anon

#124-5. Don't knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while.

-Kin Hubbard

#124-6. Weather is a great metaphor for life - sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, and there's nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.

-Pepper Giardino

#124-7. Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
-Rabindranath Tagore
