Witty quotes

Some of Oscar Wilde's quotes![] .... witticism at its best!

A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.
A man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her.
Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.
America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up. Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
I always like to know everything about my new friends, and nothing about my old ones.
I think that God in creating Man somewhat overestimated his ability.
It is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information.
Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace.
One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.
The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.
To disagree with three-fourths of the British public is one of the first requisites of sanity. Whenever people agree with me I always feel I must be wrong.
Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.
Most people are other people.
Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. Work is the curse of the drinking classes.
I can resist anything but temptation.
Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about.
Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.

Back to School after 5 years

Before joining the school , I had a lot of questions .. Will I be able to study ? How will it be in a full time school with exams and assignments and what not? Now, here I am .. Studying several courses at a time and these questions seem meaningless!
The transition from a professional to a student could not have been smoother.. Having said that, I have to point out that this student life is as well nothing short of professionalism! The MBA programme, specially the one for experienced guys, helps keep the professional in you alive. During several discussions in the past few days, I have been forced to delve into the past to bring out my experiences related to professional life. These reflections help you keep the professional alive. I believe more than any thing else, these reflections are the best mode of learning. You read something, reflect and find new perspectives developed each time. The more you delve into it,the more interesting it becomes. With this I remembered that before I get involved in this interesting topic again, I must complete my assignments .. :)

Orientation Week Begins

Hard work is in the offing... has been the important ingredient of the talks so far ..
3 Days in the college and boy , it has really got us moving .. if one thinks MBA is a cakewalk .. better be warned.
The activities planned by the Alums have been amazing to get all of us together and to prepare us for the MBA experience at ISB.
The incoming batch looks quite good and the bar is being raised continuously at ISB.. This year the GMAT Avg score is 706 :)

Registration was very well organized and coordinated. The processes were simple and convenient ! Got the bank loan santioned from Andhra Bank .. laptop from precision and go my ID etc .. and yes, a RED coloured T shirt as well!!
Andhra Bank needs a special mention for customer friendliness .. the processing took just 5 mins and unlike SBI, i didn't have to write letter etc .. seems like AB has a good understanding with ISB
Students are amazing .. within a day i feel at home. Met sharath .. and few bitsians ... Feels like heaven :)
