B Lead Story : Master Self-motivation https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/readersblog/author-jugraj-singh/master-self-motivation-28394/ Excerpts: "If you master self-motivation, any feasible dream you have becomes an objective that is separated from you, only by time, because you’re able to put in the work. Self-motivation will have you keep going when other people quit. When normally you would have quit yourself. This will be one of the most valuable resources you will use for school, work, business and life in general. It all depends on where you choose to apply it." C Readers' Contribution 1) V Babusenan Thiruvananthapuram Two Philosophers It was the year 1911. A handsome youngster came to see Bertrand Russell at Trinity College ,Cambridge, where he was teaching mathematical logic at that time. The visitor appeared to be in a hurry. He was a German. In broken English he introduced himself and indicated the purpose of his visit thus: "I am Ludwig Wittgenstein. I am an Austrian born in Vienna. After completing my study in the Berlin Technical Institute, I came to England, three years ago, to pursue my studies in aeronautical engineering at Manchester University. I happened to read your book on principles of mathematics. I am very much interested in that subject. Will you teach me that?" Russell liked the young man. He permitted him to attend his lectures from the beginning of the next term. Wittgenstein was a restless student. He would not accept any statement until he was satisfied about its veracity. Once Russell said: "There is no hippopotamus in this class room." Wittgenstein went round and made a thorough search before accepting that statement. He never bothered about class-room etiquette. He didn't hesitate to interrupt Russell whenever he had a doubt. At the end of the term, Wittgenstein came to see Russell at his residence and asked a strange question: "Sir, do you find me a perfect fool? If so, I shall go back to Manchester and pursue my aeronautical studies. If not, I want to become a philosopher. "Russell smiled and said: "Wittgenstein, do one thing. During the vacation, write an article on a philosophical topic of your choice and send it to me. Then I shall give you my opinion." Wittgenstein complied with the suggestion. Russell read only the opening sentence. His response was: "Wittgenstein*, don't go back to Manchester." This short reply made a great philosopher who ,according to many, was a shade better than the Guru himself."

The little girl asked: - What is BF? The boy laughed and answered: - That means Best Friend. They later dated, the young man said to the girl: " I am your BF!" The girl leaned lightly on the boy's shoulder, shyly asked: - What is BF? The boy replied: - It's Boy Friend! A few years later they got married, had lovely children, and the husband smiled again and told his wife: "I am your BF!" The wife gently asked her husband: - What is BF? The husband looked at the lovely and happy children and replied: - It's Baby's father! As they get old, they sit together and watch the sunset on the front porch, and the old man tells his wife: - Honey! I am your BF! The old woman smiled with wrinkles on her face: - What is BF? The old man smiled happily and gave a mysterious answer: - Be Forever! When the dying old man also said: "I can BF" The old woman replied with a sad voice: - What is BF ?? The old man answered and then closed his eyes: " It's Bye Forever!" A few days later, the old woman also passed away. Before closing her eyes, the old woman whispered by the old man's grave: "Beside Forever, Sir..!" 💐💐 *Forward received from R K Sangwai in Group mail. D Book Review: The Pilgrim’s Progress | by Land of Books and Honey | Medium" https://medium.com/@landofbooksandhoney/book-review-the-pilgrims-progress-b06edb142a5e The reviewer says: "I am glad that I was able to read The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan for myself, but I feel like I totally wasted my time and energy. This book was so incredibly boring that I now understand why professors might not assign it to their students unless you are studying English literature of the 17th century or studying the Anglo-American colonists and their religious views. The book contains two main parts. The first part is about a man, who goes on pilgrimage to find the Celestial City. After he goes on pilgrimage, his name becomes Christian. The second part is about his wife and others, heading to the Celestial City. After she goes on pilgrimage, her name becomes Christiana."
