On life

Life is like flying a kite. Sometimes you have to hold on tight, sometimes loose. Sometimes your kite can fly effortlessly and at other times no matter what you do, you cannot control it. But even when you’re struggling to keep your kite afloat, and the string is cutting into your hand, don’t let go. The wind may change once again in your favour, just don’t let go.

On overusing the resources

French town of Vittel suffering water shortages as Nestle accused of ‘overusing’ resources

Jean-François Fleck, head of a local environmental group, Vosges Nature Environnement, said: “There has been a shortfall in water regeneration since the 1970s, when the water deficit was about 2.5 million cubic metres a year. Today it has stabilised at about 800,000 cubic metres, which is equivalent to Nestlé’s current usage.”

If nothing is done to halt the fall, residents used to having Vittel spring water on tap may be forced to rely on water piped in from the village of Lerrain, 12 miles away.

“The work would be funded out of people’s water bills so very clearly we are going to be paying so that Nestlé can continue taking and exporting our water,” Mr Schmitt said.

On marriage

An Interesting Survey Report:
If Men behaved after marriage, the same way they behaved before marriage – Half of the divorces would not take place.

However, on the other hand,
If Women behaved before marriage, the same way they behaved after marriage – Half of the marriages would NOT have taken place.

Some kids are smarter than you, some kids have cooler clothes than you, some kids are better at sports than you. It doesn’t matter. You have your thing too. Be the kid who can get along. Bet the kid who is generous. Be the kid who is happy for other people. Be the kid who does the right thing. Be the nice kid.
