Quotation!!!!!

I know that, Tagging is a common practice among bloggers, though I hardly came across it. But since two of my close friends have done the inevitable, let me respond to atleast one. Sorry Tintuzz, urs next. Let me respond to Deepak now.

The rule goes like this. List down 5 fav quotes. As simple as that.

1. When you go home, tell them of Us and say, for Your tomorrow, we gave Our today -- Various War Memorials , the one in Kohima one of them

2. It's better to die upon your feet than to live upon your knees --- Emiliano Zapata Salazar or Che Guevara [?] . Not sure.

3. You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know - that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall -- you need me on that wall. We use words like "honor," "code," "loyalty." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand the post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!

--Col. Nathan R Jessep - (movie)A few good men

4. അതിരാണിപ്പാടത്തെ പുതിയ തലമുറയുടെ കാവല്‍ക്കാരാ, അതിക്രമിച്ചു കടന്നതു പൊറുക്കൂ...പഴയ കൌതുക വസ്തുക്കള്‍ തേടി നടക്കുന്ന ഒരു പരദേശിയാണു ഞാന്‍.

-- ഒരു ദേശത്തിന്റെ കഥ - എസ്‌.കെ.പൊറ്റക്കാട്‌

5.And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

-- Holy Bible , Romans 8:28

That was a quick work. If I spend more time, I will have a list of 50 quotes.

Thanks Layman for the tag.

Jose,

I loved your comments in Dogs own country. I seriously think spreading bad news about kerala is a fashion now. Its high time we need to stop DOC and Kerala Tips coz both of them have a hidden agenda of preventing Investment to kerala by specifically pointing at negatives. Hopefully this will answer your question about MC. I still think he works for other governments. See how tactfully he avoided that question. He will never reveal himself. We somehow need to stop this at any cost.

Hey, really admire your persistence and patience and pain you take in commenting on save kerala. You did make some valid points.

I want to start programming, and I want to jump on the iphone/touch marked, but I don't know which books I should buy. I am looking for a book that's easy to learn from and covers everything. I am new to the whole programming thing, so a book that explains the basics would be fine.
