Fishing

Quote: Many men go fishing their entire lives without knowing it is not fish they are after
Author: Henry David Thoreau
Photographer: Arun Ramachandra

I was just browsing through my hard disk when I noticed this nice snap sent by Arun last year. That reminded me that there are quite a few snaps contributed by visitors and colleagues which I havent posted yet. So let me start with this.

Thanks Arun for the snap.

Only y'day my friend was relating this joke about a chap who is fishing when a friend walks by & asks why he is fishing. Our guy says that he's doing that so that he can catch lots of fish, sell them for a profit & buy a small fishing boat.From those profits, he'd buy a fishing ship and then a own a whole fishing empire. Slowly he would diversify into maybe agriculture, IT & so forth.
"Then?" asks the friend.
"Then" says or chap "I will retire & come here & fish all day"
The friend is a bit amused & says "Arent you doing that already?"

Thanks Prasad.

Vanathi, I am afraid I cant pass on your compliments to Henry David Thoreau :-)

Amarjeet, This one is oft quoted during speeches. In fact there are several variants of it floating around and the jist is the same. I wonder who wrote this originally but its good and true to this day.

After all dont they say "If you love your job then you will never have to work again" I am the living proof for it :)

That is going to have to rate right up there with my favorite quotes.

I have admired Thoreau a lot - particularly for his essays.
