I guess I'm part of your group then. I also don't have someone whom I idolize. I'm not really sure if that's good or bad. All I know is that some people find it easier to set goals when they know that they have seen someone actually accomplish those goals... I wouldn't mind finding someone in the state that I dream myself to be in 10 years. But the problem, I think, is that I idealize to much and no body ever passes that criteria :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Yes, as you say, having an idol you may want to live up to that expectation. It could otherwise be just a fantasy. As for you, your standards are pretty high, and therefore you are in a positive frame of mind, and will definitely reach your goals. Good luck always. Thanks.

Hail, O Mighty King ! Haha. I really like your self confidence. Good show. Yes, to respect a person is quite different from idolising him. Its much better to have our own principles and set goals likewise. Thanks bhanu.

I tend to idolise writers I admire. I'm a big fan of Shakespeare, unoriginal as that may sound. I'm fond of George Orwell because I like his books in addition to some similar personal beliefs; not to get too political but I love that he can criticise Stalin's totalitarian government and at the same time be a socialist; today it seems everyone simplifies and warps it to the point they somehow believe liberal=fascist.

Hi eponine, good to know you read Shakespear too. I too enjoy reading his stories, though at times his language leaves me baffled and have to read twice to understand. Regardig George Orwell, Ive have never read his books. From all this I can understand that you are an avid reader and lap up all the information like a sponge. I too love books, but not the political kind. Are you into political science or some such thing. Whew. Thanks pal.
