Just thinking … March 3, 2007

Some are born <adjective>, some achieve <noun>, and some have <noun> thrust upon them.

Shakespeare’s quote is what you get when the adjective is “great” and the corresponding noun “greatness” is inserted in there. But think about it – a whole lot of other noun-adjective pairs also make the sentence meaningful. What is your favorite candidate pair ? Sorry Mr. Shakespeare, wherever thou grave might be, I promise to leave a flower behind for this impudence.

insignificant/insignificance [spoils the quote totally]
diplomatic/diplomacy [some justice here]
religious/religiousness [will incur me some wrath]
3 flowers from me……..

🙂 ..religious/religiosity certainly incurs wrath…..( although nobody is born religious ….it takes kids to get the concept of god n all rite….3-4-5 years …)
in some cases that i have seen ….they are first scared abt the police….then later on god becomes the feared character….
