    Very nice quotations indeed. Very creative.

  7. Good Zahid Cheema, it freshen up the mind and brings a smile. I like them because they are written by a Gallian like me {also being bit prejudice it is always a pleasure to see a Jat writing}. Regards and happy landings always.

  8. These Quotes are really wonderful. Dear Admin, thanks for giving me the link of this Page. “A Quote a Day” from this Page will be added to my Group “Friends NOT Lovers” daily :)

  9. Maj (R) Rehmat Elahi says:

    Well done ZZ Cheema. Its really a master piece. Just keep it up. :)

  10. W. June Cheema says:

    Very interesting but most of us appreciate short, down to earth quotes, and not English that is normally not spoken in our everyday life. This young man is an artist but why try so hard to impress.

  11. Lt Col (R) Akhter Hayat Malik says:

    Beautiful and innovative.

  12. Tahir Khan Kayani says:

    Quite creative transformation of one form of Art (Art of writing) to another (i.e. Visual). Very well done.

  13. Rana M. Sadiq says:

    Some of these passed over my head. I’m still as dumb as was in PMA. LOL

  14. Dr. Zafar Iqbal Cheema says:

    Zahid, these are very intelligent quotations. I have enjoyed these thoroughly.

  15. Maj (R) Nadeem Ahmad says:

    I agree with Major Farooq Rana. Only a Gallian can come up with these. I am proud to be a Gallian. Can you get “MAD” these days?

  16. Maj (R) Farooq Rana says:

    Your quote about Kiwis is really good!! Can we add penguins too?
    Now coming to your quote “What is truth? A lie agreed upon!!” It is a very true axiom and I mostly believed in this. Similarly it is said about history that “It is a fable agreed upon.” Nice quotation!!

  17. Azam Gill, France says:

    Zahid Cheema, if you hadn’t been born, you would have had to been invented.

  18. Col Qaisar Rashid says:

    Such wisdom coming from such a young gentleman is praiseworthy. Start writing, you have the potential. Well done.

  19. Zahid Cheema, well done. These are good quotes. The readers of this website are more interested in short one-liner witty quotes.

    • Maj (R) Farooq Rana says:

      But for me all are sterling, witty quotes, nice and crisp. There used to be a magazine by the name “MAD”, that used to supply beautiful such quotes. Zahid Cheema, continue the nice work!!
