A Quote by V. T. Neelkantan on good fortune, libraries, open road, path, free world, and travel

Afoot and lighthearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading whenever I choose,
Henceforth I ask not good fortune, I am myself good fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticism,
Strong & Content I travel The Open Road.

A Quote by V. T. Neelkantan on mango grove, fossil, story, attitude, mango, benefactor, ill-treated, world, and fruit

The world has continued to demonstrate the ridiculous attitude of men. There is the story of a man condemned as an "old fossil", and called crazy because he thought of planting a mango grove. No one helped him plant, in fact, all deserted him, scoffing and mocking him. Years rolled by, the mango trees grew and brought forth delicious fruit and all the sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters and great-greats ran to the grove and placed up a sign board saying, "This Mango grove belongs to us!"

That's the world. The world has never once thought how it has ill-treated its benefactor.
