Quote of the day – Haruki Murakami

“Some things in life are too complicated to explain in any language.”
Haruki Murakami



Quote of the day – Charles Swindoll


“If you’re running a 26-mile marathon, remember that every mile is run one step at a time. If you are writing a book, do it one page at a time. If you’re trying to master a new language, try it one word at a time. There are 365 days in the average year. Divide any project by 365 and you’ll find that no job is all that intimidating.”

– Charles Swindoll


Joke of the day – Elevator or lift


An American visiting England walked into a hotel lobby and pushed a button for elevator service. “The lift will be down presently,” said a nearby clerk.

“The lift?”, said the American. “Oh, you mean the elevator.”

“No, I mean the lift, replied the Englishman, annoyed by the American’s arrogance.

“I think I should know what it’s called,” said the American. “After all, elevators were invented in the United States.”

“Perhaps,” retorted the Englishman. “But the language was invented here.”
