Dimitris Mita Quotes

Dimitris Mita

I began writing on Hubpages five years ago and after receiving generous encouragement and support from the incredibly kind and talented people one finds here, I finally managed to write a couple of books.

Having written two books, one being a novel and the other a political theory, I felt that I had satisfied my primal urge to join the ranks of millions of unread authors and there, I thought, the matter would rest.

However, I was astounded to find recently that stuff I had written in both books have been turned into ‘quotable’ quotes, if that is the scientific way of putting the thing. In fact, on one ‘quotes’ site, in order to get to me – me being at the bottom of the page - you will have the onerous task of first ploughing through Aristotle and Shakespeare!

http://www.brainyquotes.in/quotes/view/a/quotes-by-dimitris-mita-324025.html (You really have to go to the very bottom).

As a result one can reasonably and safely assume that at least one person has actually read what I have written and not only that, took the trouble to copy the stuff and subsequently pass the word around. The fact that I have not benefited financially from such a circulation is a moot point and to harp on it would be the equivalent of biting a gold doubloon won in a raffle organised by Christie’s Auction House.

I have always believed that the world is divided into writers and want-to-be writers, myself not only firmly cramped in the cheapest balcony seats of the latter section, but caged in behind elaborate safety bars for the safety of the public at large. Yet apparently miracles do happen and here we are. I am now a quotable author. THANK YOU HUBPAGES!


Quotes

My megalomania now knows no bounds and I save a lot on my world-wide travels, as I have done away with airplanes, since I now constantly walk on air. And since naturally no good turn remains unpunished, you lot who have helped me so much, shall pay for your kind deed by having some of my quotes, published or otherwise, shoved down your throats. Hence the relevant pictures below.

      YOU never cease to amaze me. But I'm not at all amazed that your witty, sophisticated pronouncements have gained recognition! I hope you really know how good you are! Hugs from this admirer

      ps - I love that picture too.

      And YOU never fail to be a loyal friend Nellieanna :-)

      You may not be surprised that some of the things I wrote have 'gained recognition' but I certainly am. :-)

      And thank you for the comment about the picture. Not bad for a 67 year old, what? ;-)

      Yes, you look great for a young whippersnapper, - you clever kid. Let's see how you are when you catch up to my age in 16 years, when I'll be 98 and still challenging you to keep up. hehe.

      I won't last that long, Kid. I have already bought my grave and my only regret is that you will not attend the funeral :-)

      What are you talkin' about, Dimi. From the looks of that photo and your sexy visage, you have another good 20 years to go. And I already knew how 'quotable' you are, m'dear.

      I particularly enjoy your quote about culture as related to a discussion of wine. So true.

      Thanks, drbj, always glad to hear a kind word.

      We got engaged once I memory serves. is it still on? ;-)

      Of course! When you become engaged to me it lasts for life ... or the nearest facsimile.

      The sweet recollection of Dr. BJ's comments to you here is especially heartwarming right now, Dimitris.
