The fact that I remember these quotes and scenes is not because I like them so much, but because I dislike them so intensely.

Anything from Samuel Beckett or Brecht is my favorite.... Some of my recent favorites include God of Small Things, by Arundhati Roy and Roots, by Alex Haley. In Urdu, I'd read Faiz, Ghalib and Manto on any given day.... besides many others of course :-)

I can't stand the condescending tone of this book. Never have.
If you want something the whole universe will transpire to give it to you.

And those who work hard, and still don't get that thing ( Not referring to CSS). What about them? I guess they didn't want it enough. huh?

People should understand that these novels are works of fiction, so one cannot really judge about its adaptability or application in real life. This novel by the way is very intriguing, my boss suggested me to read it, I glued into it the moment I started reading. And finished it on the next day 😋.

As for the transpiring thing, it's a human psychology that if you think about a particular thing for a considerable period of time you unintentionally in your sub conscious connect things or events which aren't otherwise connected or related. You will feel that everything is happening for a purpose and it's scripted in heavens.

I've read it twice. The book is written like a metaphor for real life and it is supposed to be motivating.
I meant in real life, do they people who don't get their dreams just don't want it enough?
