Fifty by fifty

Irrefutably, we learn numerous things in this short life. I too learned few things during my fifty years of journey on this earth. These fifty quotes presented here are obviously a result of my learning.


Things that I learned

  20. Your silence also kills the relationship while arguments do the same.
  21. Never give self-justification if the opponent has already prepared to condemn you.
