Soul Food

I have been collecting Quotes for as long as I can remember. Right through my school days, through college and my working years, I have built a collection, usually a reflection of my state of mind. I have relied on words to get me through tough times, or when I am particularly feeling blue, or maybe when I am reminiscing about past events. So Calvin's Cloud is yet another extension in the blogoshere. Today, after a long time, I have been inspired to post a new set of Soul Food, as I like to call them, borrowed from a collection published in the Times of India on Pg 13.
