Inspired me to learn about:
So it’s been quite a while that I’ve been reading Self-help books. But this time I wanted to read something new. This story is really new to me where a girl is a science geek and a guy is a bit poetic and very much inward towards the family’s high expectations. Little did they know, Universe had its own way to make them fall in love with each other.
It wasn’t enough last year this Best-Selling book was adapted into a movie too which is already released last year in May-2019.
Here’s a link for the Trailer:
3 takeaways from the book:
“Words shouldn’t be allowed to change meanings. Who decides that the meaning has changed, and when? Is there an in-between time when word means both things. Or a time when the word doesn’t mean anything at all?”
“Life is just a series of dumb decisions and indecisions and coincidences that we choose to ascribe meaning to. School cafeteria out of your favorite pastry today? It must be because the universe is trying to keep you on your diet.. Thanks, Universe! You missed your train? Maybe the train’s going to explode in the tunnel, or Patient Zero for some horrible bird flu (waterfowl, goose, pterodactyl) is on that train, and thanks goodness you weren’t on it after all. Thanks, Universe! No one bothers to follow up with destiny, though. The cafeteria just forgot there was another bow in the back, and you got a slice of cake from your friend anyway. You fumed while waiting for another train, but one came along eventually. No one died on the train you missed. No one so much as sneezed. We tell ourselves there are reasons for the things that happen, but we’re just telling ourselves stories. We make them up. They don’t mean anything.”
“Love always changes everything.”
