Some "Silly" Quotes...

Over the past couple of weeks, in the midst of my conversations with friends in the seminary, several rather interesting quotes were remarked. Well, it's still early in the semester, but I guess pressure is already mounting, and this may have led to some creative juice manifesting itself in these quotes. Well, I guess it's one of those magical moments that someone just burst out with something worth remembering.

On what is bad time management.
"If you are busy, you have bad time management" - never mind if you never even get your work done, or it takes you 5 months to draft a simple letter, all you need to do is NOT to be busy.

On whether one should read a post in the forum, in light of the bad time management quote above.
"You can read it if only you have excellent time management skills, else forget it."

On why a single guy would not date a very charming girl.
"Hey, this is your last bus. Don't miss it," says a friend, referring to the girl.
"I would rather miss the last bus than hop on the wrong bus," came the reply.

On changing thesis topic:
Student: "I would not really want to change topic. I would not want the pie to fly at my face."
Lecturer: "It is better to have the pie fly at your face now than to have the other pie and then find out that you have problem swallowing it and that it causes indigestion."

On blogging.
A: 'Bloggers and those who read blogs are a bunch of people who like to spread gossips."
The Budding NT Scholar: ".....you know you are one if you read this!"

when my greek professor said yesterday that he has never watched tv for the last 8 years, i was thinking whether i should cut down my time on the facebook & blog reading!
we r always guilty of something, being "gossipers" is just one of our many problems, i guess...
oh oh, it just the beginning of the semester, but i hv already sounded melancholic.

If this is the quality of 'creativity' that is coming from STM, i'm afraid we've got a long way more to be at the 'vanguard' of redefining theological perspectives for the social context. Sigh. Lord have mercy.

I am sure there will be wiser quotes coming out soon ... silly quotes are just but one small portion of life at STM .. right? I am right, aren't I? :-)
