1. Emotions are just chemical reactions induced by electrical signals created by nerves.

2. Crooks try to manipulate you, lure you in;

3. The heart has its own reasons, Veeru, that the mind knows nothing of.

4. Being cautious is not bad.

5.Being cautious won't help you in love.

6. You move on sometime, no matter how attached or hurt you were.

7. We are good at wishing our castles, aren't we? Wishing our walls and gates and stairs and rooms and towers and turrets till a few words are enough to blow them away into thin air like wisps of smoke.
8. Wanting someone without caring for them was not live by far a cry. 

9. Death is never so gentle, at-least bit to people who she leaves trapped.

The Prostitute's Daughter or The Runaway Daughter by Juliet Philip

The book is originally known as "The Runaway Daughter". "The Prostitute's Daughter" is the version which is released in India.

Here are my thoughts about the book

1. Everybody wants to fall in love... And once in love, people want to jump out of it.

2. What is the point in asking for another slice of bread or a warm hug when there aren't any to be had?

3. Encouraging word scan make such an I start and lasting impression.

4. Questioning the Collins might reveal and identity we're better off not knowing.

5. The right choice is the best decision you can make for yourself at any given time. It may not turn out as you hoped, but it is the best you could do at that point in your life.

6. There are not right or wrong decisions.

7. Your decisions are progressions to your passions.

8. Boredom is by far the worst enemy known to man.

9. Perhaps the snake never intended to become a snake; Mother nature made it a slithering snake.

10. It's very easy to feel like a victim.

11. Love cab be magical, found in an instant and feel like it is meant to be forever from the start.

12. Love does not need compromise and sacrifice.

Who Moved My Cheese by Dr. Spencer Johnson

Hooray for change....

This is how I felt about this book: Who Moved My Cheese by Dr. Spencer Johnson

Handwritings on the wall:

1. Having cheese makes you happy.

2. The more important your cheese is to you the more you want to hold on to it.

3. If you do not change, You can become extinct.

4. What do you do if you weren't afraid?

5. Smell the cheese often so you know when it is getting old.

6. Movement in a new direction helps you find new cheese.

7. When you move beyond your fear, you feel free.

8. Imagining myself enjoying new cheese even before i find it, leads me to it.

9.. The quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you find new cheese.

10. It is safer to search in the maze than remain in a cheesless situation.

11. Old beliefs do not lead you to new cheese.

12. When you see that you can find and enjoy new cheese, you change course.

13. Noticing small changes early helps you adapt to the bigger changes that are to come.

14. Move with the cheese and enjoy!

Other notable lines:

1. "...we resist changes because we're afraid of change."

2. Better late than never.

3. The fear you let build up in your mind is worse than the situation that actually exists.

4. "...the fastest way to change is to laugh at your own folly..."

5. A change imposed is a change opposed.

6. See what you're doing wrong, laugh at it, change and do better.

7. When you stop being afraid you feel good
