A long time back, I read a comment on someone's blog, that went something like "Life is like a paracetamol tablet. You have to swallow a lot of bitterness to get to the 5 milligrams of sugar coating."


To tell you the truth, I don't remember the quote very well - just the gist (it looks rather original! so let's not call it a quote!). The blog where I saw it has long been shut to outsiders. But getting back to that seemingly original one liner (I must admit I liked it, but), the logic is flawed. Sugar coating always comes _before_ all the bitterness you must endure.


Some notes:

  1. Wasn't sugar coating the reason why you took the tablet of life in the first place?)
  2. And if it is a paracetamol one, it ultimately means, you are being cured of some sickness! ;) Even after all the bitterness :)

Sugar coating always comes _before_ all the bitterness --> I would like da sugar coating after the bitterness.. that way i will value the sugar coating even more..

And if it is a paracetamol one, it ultimately means, you are being cured of some sickness! ;) Even after all the bitterness --> Exactly.. u r being cured resembles the sugar coating.. dats y i said i would like to have the sugar coating after the bitterness.... (waise it is a different thing that who the hell wants bitterness in life.. but that is a part of life.. cant run 4m it..)
