Anurag's One-Liner Quotes (Continued from January 2018 issue)

Anurag Sharma
Sometimes, an idea flashes in my mind and then refuses to get out of it. My way of getting rid of a stubborn thought is by burying it deep down in my notebook before attempting to forget about it. Sometimes I am so sad to see the damage done by a common saying, or belief that I feel like countering it. That's how my one-liners are born most of the time. Here are a few for your reading pleasure. - Anurag Sharma
