Today’s post is merely an extension of my brief review on ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Since, I spilled the beans and created such a hoopla around the book and its story, that I thought it would be better if I simply share some of the best lines from this great piece of literature.
To keep it rather short and sweet, I have picked 10 memorable quotes from Love in the Time of Cholera for you guys. Hope you’ll like them.
I just finished reading one of the greatest pieces of literature – Love in the Time of Cholera by the brilliant Gabriel Garcia Marquez. As my tale goes, being a super slow reader with extremely rough work schedules, I can’t always give too much time to reading every day. Let’s put it this way that I don’t get to read as much as I wish to. However, this particular book was really a topper on my list and I’m quite happy to complete it.
‘Stop trying to make everybody happy. You’re not chocolate.’ 🍫
Some of us make this common mistake of trying to please the world all the time. As humanly impossible as it sounds, it leaves us only more drained out, weak and hurt eventually.
I was just sorting pictures on the laptop earlier today, and I happened to come across a variety of coffee clicks from so many different cafes that I have been to over the years. So, today, I am featuring the first photo blog of Scribbleomaniac to share my coffee clicks – a token of friendship from one coffee lover to another, no matter where you are.
Happy Sunday Friends! Hope you’re having a great weekend. Mine has been quite regular, so to say. Nothing surprising or adventurous really, but mostly relaxed. Amidst this non-excitedness, I thought of starting a fresh series on the blog – The Weekend Diaries and so the first chapter of the lot is ‘Of Mundane Breakfasts & Non-Horror Flicks’. Well, like I said, it has not been one of those super happening weekends, so don’t expect nothing magical, nevertheless, it is an attempt to keep the writer’s block miles away.
The last few weeks have been rather tough as I had to make some really important decisions; now that the path is clear, I can write in peace. Well, so to be clear, the choice that I made will land me at another work place and I am quite excited to explore new avenues. However, the reason why I am writing this blog post is not to talk about my bizarre work life, instead, I want to introduce a very dear friend of mine – my work buddy.
However, the moment I got some time to gather my thoughts, the first thing that came to my mind was to have a refresh take on the writing scene. And what better way to do that than to come up with a new, revamped look of the blog.
Today’s story is about just another labor. It may seem different or similar; somewhat old and new. It may ring a bell or completely miss the point. I can’t really say. I’m simply sharing what I saw and felt.
It’s been over six months since Scribbleomaniac became live, so I realized today. I thought that it’s time that I should change the blog’s head cover as well the cover pics of the facebook page and twitter stream as a token of this sixmonthversary.
Nothing grand really, just a simple collage put together to highlight the essence of Scribbleomaniac i.e. travel, poetry and furkids.
Today, I will talk about Cappadocia – a natural wonder in the Central Anatolian region of Turkey covering the provinces of Aksaray, Nevsehir, Nigde, Kayseri and Kirsehir. Cappadocia means the ‘Land of Horses’ and the region is best known for its quiet, serene and soothing aura. You can call it either Cappadocia (cap-a-doshia) or Kapadokya, both are correct.
After a lot of thinking, I decided that the best way to share my experience would be to put down a bucket list for Cappadocia for all travel buddies, highlighting what all can you expect from this unique region of underground cities, cave churches, houses and natural rock formations.
