Nuggets of Quotes

Nuggets of Quotes

I have just published a slideshare presentation titled β€œNuggets of Quotes”. It amazes me that occasionally I go back to the comments of my readers and read as many as my time allows to discover wealth of comments. It is my deep appreciation to all commenters that I must express first. It is with regret that I couldn’t include all the nuggets in one presentation, but more presentations are forthcoming.

I assure you that if you make the habit of reviewing comments you shall be not only thrilled to see how discussions progressed over time. More, it is how you see the parts making a whole and new perspectives emerge.

Recently, I declined from signing the contract as Brand Ambassador to beBee. It was only for one reason. I have no more the energy to do the tasks I am expected to do. I wanted to be honest and straight. Not in my dreams I would refuse such an honor if it I were physically competent to match the responsibilities linked with such a prestigious title. It is through publishing and engaging that I represent beBee to the best I can.

The nuggets of quotes extracted from the bundles of comments on my buzzes on beBee is the reflection of my gratitude to be associated with such an engaging social platform. Such engagement has resulted so far in contributing more than two hundred and fifty buzzes. This engagement wouldn’t have been possible without the great efforts of the beBee Team. I wish to express my special gratitude to both gentlemen @JavierΒ beBee and @ Juan Imaz for making beBee a soul-filling platform.

I wish other authors would do the same and publish on comments received from their authors. Comments are the excretes of our brains and through sharing these excretes that we may advance and encourage readers to get more engaged as well.

I invite you to read the slideshare presentation to see what great ideas floated from my exchanges with my readers. They inspired me, and I hope that I inspired them as well. This is a living experience and I hope it would fill you with wonderment, drive and passion as they filled me with. Remember that a micro comment may have more influence than a book.

Life as usual is starting to speed up, sorry for the late response. In reading the quotes i was gratifying to see that many share a common outlook on success and humanity. Like always you seem to attract the seekers of humanity who wish to understand the dynamic of time and space within their individual lives. The one comment that was really enlightening was the one concerning your ability to become a conduit of comments. Allowing a post along with comments to expand beyond the original thought. Thanks for your inclusion of my comment it is humbling.

Dear Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic- it is for these reasons that promlted me to quit my nob and devote my my for hunan-related activities as of Feb. 1st. I am now enjoying my life and happy doing what I am doing. I wish to pass my knowledge to others. It is sad when we cage our thoughts because of time pressures.

Dear Ali, no one would be happier than me if I could write more and finish all drafts "written" in my head. Reality is, however, stronger than desire. Currently, I'm involved in project management of an EU funded construction project that leaves me little leisure time for activities like blogging or even commenting. There is a significant difference between woman's and man's leisure time. A full-time working woman/mom/daughter/wife/ has not much time for leisure activities. :) I do my best to read, share, and comment on beBee articles. And yours have always been amongst my favourites.

Isn't it few lines of quotes that spurred this great comment by you CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit? I concur that one feeling I had while writing this buzz was feelings of "appreciation and love". If a single line can inspire somebody to build a story or a post that shall be great. We build stories from a theme of one line. For example, in Romeo and Juliet it is Love is greater than death. In Casablanca it is the love of a homeland is greater than the love of a woman. Your voice has the butterfly effect

Thank You Ali Anani. I have never been impressed with our twitterized society reducing life to one liners, but when we use great thinkers as the basis of our quotes, we are engaged in deference and servitude, when we do what you have done, we engage appreciation and love. Do note that that my negative disposition to our one liner society was the reason I wrote a blog called ONE under the name "Mark Zorro" some 15 years ago here http://markzorro.blogspot.ca/2003/ It is why the tag line for that blog was "Mark Twain wasn't Mark Twain, Mark Zorro isn't Mark Zorro". We get so caught up in placing quotes on an alter that we don't even notice the rise of "fake news" and misattribution - where we can put whatever nonsense we like under the names of Aristotle, Gandhi and Einstein and expect people to retweet or use those false quotes. If we could have changed the world through plaudits and stately quotes, it would have changed by now. At least in appreciating each other at the most local and humblest of levels is a positive change, but still curated in the hands of an individual that we equally appreciate, maybe at even a greater measure of being. A lifetime of parsing an idea so it is packed with meaning is the value of brevity. Conciseness is best a practice and an art rather than as a social laziness. Maybe a quote on a t-shirt can change the life of a rich kid who can afford to be rich enough to act poor. Thus we can be impoverished by this spiritually and when quotes become our substitute for medication. Happiness and the value of thinking are best expressions of a free spirit than acts of an incarcerated soul. The voice of our freedom is the butterfly here that gets out of our social cage, not as an influencer, but as a human being.

Thank you dear Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic. I am glad that you experienced the beauty of reviewing comments and that they may taste differently after a while. This is possible to taste only upon experimenting with the idea of reviewing past comments to realize that old roots may give new fruits. For this reason your line "Some of them have now a deeper meaning to me than when I read them the first time because my perspective on topics changed" resonates with me. I look forward to reading a buzz by you on your experience.

What a praiseworthy idea for a post, dear Ali. Just a few days ago I was reviewing all the comments on some of my posts with the longest comment thread. This second reading of a thread in its entirety has thrown new light to some comments. Some of them have now a deeper meaning to me than when I read them the first time because my perspective on topics changed. The same is with several commenters. Their perspective on some things has evolved in a positive, but also a negative way. It is interesting to keep track of these changes in thinking. As for the ambassadorship, you still have more energy in promoting beBee than most beBee ambassadors, some even more than half your age younger. You should be appointed an Honorary Ambassador for beBee.

My busiest times of the year at work are the beginning January, February and March and the end of the year November and December. These time periods are when change often occurs in people's lives and Christmas is a time to meet family and relatives so often anxiety over family politics can be high

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I enjoyed reading the comments of others and I don't need to read mine again But thank you for mentioning this. You could probably write a buzz every week like this one as many bees read your buzzes and many bees write interesting intelligent and profound comments !

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

I do appreciate your warm words and feelings my dear Debasish Majumder. You know extracting a bee's thoughts in one quote is not an easy task. However; we have many talented author bees like yourself who make this task easier. It is such an enriching experience to go through hundred of comments and how people differ on their views and styles in expressing their views on same topic. May be you could express this in a poem and you are surely capable of doing this.

perhaps nuggets are foreign elements and it is an intriguing affair how they emerge on Earth. but, more intriguing is how they form on space and what conditions play the key role to form them. But sir Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, your posts are surely an indispensable condition, triggering many to make precious comments, which may consider as 'nuggets'. i am looking forward for such invaluable posts to enrich myself. thank you very much sir for producing innumerable posts and wish you may never feel fatigued to produce more.
