I had an exam on Monday! I was just not at all prepared. None in my department was. And the teacher in charge was just not keeping an eye on us....so we just happilly cheated! I copied around 60-75 marks! After the exam I dont know why i felt so guilty! I was in my 12th standard then and used to take maths tuition from S.G.SIR. I am not boasting but i was one of the good students of the lot. One day i got 99/100 in a maths paper and was clapping with joy! Seeing that sir told me "Revtee, one day would succeed a lot because of brilliant and extraordinary brain. But, if someday you fail, you would fail becuse you know that you have an extraordinary brain." On Monday, throughout the day I thought about it, I have cheated in exams in school life also but for thoe 1-2 marks objective questions. I hope I wouldn't have to repeat this incident again!!!!!

Well... I have been born and brought up at very small place and I had a big friend circle at start. Still I use to have many friends where ever I live as I have always left influence over people in their first meeting with me and almost everybody around me listen me and follow me. Due to all these things I always have very much self confidence in me. I have always said anything with great self confidence and even I don't go towards achieving anything, I have always believed that If I would I could. My father is great person with much knowledge about human psychology and he has lived his life with principle and pride. He also think I have inherited many things from him, He always know my strength, quality and thinking. Once he talked with me when I was about to leave my state for further study. He said me to remember one thing - "A foolish also get a great self confidence, so always try not to have self confidence like foolish." This sentence affect me a lot and still I remember it many times when I feel my strong view or confidence towards any thing and try to judge whether it's a foolish self confidence or it's real ? Though my father has forget but I still remember... Thanks you..

Actually there is a word which perfectly suits u and that is "DIGNITY"....I know with how much degnity you say something! When a person is enough confident with what he is saying only then he can have that level of DIGNITY...... Actually you know when i went up to sir one day and said to him that i cannot cheat because he said such thing....he laughed so much! He himself didnt remember when he had said such thing! I am very frickle minded but I whenever I am not prepared for any exam i remembe one thing my grandfather told me once "REMEMBER THAT STUDIES IS THE EASIEST THING ON EARTH! AND THE PERSON WHO CANNOT DO THE EASIEST THING HE CAN NEVER EVEN THINK OF ACHIEVEING THE HARDER GOALS IN LIFE." I was very small then so couldn't understand the meaning. Now when i am a bit grown up I sense it so much that i study from myself cause I want to be somebody in life. Even he used to say one thing "SOMEBODY IS SOMEBODY. NOBODY IS A NOBODY." I strictly beleive that..... N your father was more than 100% correct. Even we fail to understand whether it is really a confidence or my over confidence.....even i would remember that line now!!!! THANKS YAAH.....IT WAS MINDBLOWING!!!!!

for me a sentence that struck me the most was one that i received from a colleagues email about a crash course in management. " to be sitting down and do nothing at all, you must be sitting high" well in my workplace its true.. the higher your position is.. the lesser you have to work .

I have had several sentences stuck in my head after someone has told me something. One of my teachers told me "I don't truly care if you guys cheat, because in reality you will only be hurting yourself in the long run". I still occasionally cheat in that class, but everytime I do I ask myself "am I really cheating to get ahead?". There is a lot more but that one just popped in my head because you were talking about cheating on a test :P
