Beauty fades, stupid is forever

, , No Comments

We all know people whose thinking is obviously warped. Think of all the reasonable actions/decisions to take in any situation, and you’re sure they will not take any of them. Think of all the stupid things anyone can do, write them on a sheet of paper and number the sheet “Page 3”. Because what they will do will be more ridiculous than what you have on that sheet. Whenever you take a very stupid decision, you feel relieved when you think of them. I could go on and on…

But the truth is, we are all unreasonable (individually and collectively). And below are quotes from renowned men, commenting on this -
