Is everything possible in this world? But look at this: "Nothing is impossible in this world" I'm sure most of us are aware of this saying.. But i am always curious to know more..So i would ask you all about this..We take toothpaste in our brush,then if we try to put it again into the tube,we aren't able to! (okay this is so simple and so common) To put it clearly i have some more of this kind: *You are born in this world-maybe you are 16 now-assume-could you ever become 10 again?So that's impossible right? (Don't say you'll die and take a re-birth) *Humans aren't immortal.Oh so, could they ever be immortal? No again! You should die someday or the other,shouldn't you?If all had been living for 1000's of years, then- the world population might have been infinite MY quote-- Nothing that is practical is impossible.. Your take...

Hi I guess caption should be like this "Something possible , something impossible".. Of course no one can challenge some rules created by GOD. They are certain and no one can make change in them. But things which are capable in human hand, surely they are not impossible. If someone can else do it other can do it well if they decide to do it. Believe me some of my friends have put that paste in tube again with efforts and time.

Hmm look like Mission Impossible is going on here well Not everything is possible but many thing are we only need to find the solution for it like for immortality i am sure that in future humans would find a way to live longer and healthier but it would take lot of time (which one can't predict) not immortal but can extend our life span Something are impossible but some impossible thing are just waiting for being discovered

Yes When it is impossible- how could it be a mission? Or perhaps it is? Mission confusion and fun is going on out very well here! So maybe i should see more of Discover channels? What say? I never knew Paste was already into the tube!

How about "where there's a will, there's a way" If I want to get the toothpaste back into the tube, I fin a pair of scissors and make a neat cut at the top and remove the nozzle. Then I put it back in again. If my son wants to go back to when he was younger then the next time there is a fancy dress party I will make him a kid's costume. Nothing is impossible if you really, really want it surely?

How do they do it without cutting it? With a drinking straw?

Nope.. They just do it like this. Put paste on the hall then press it little(not more).. It will start sucking that paste inside too. I haven't tried it personally but they do it in front of me.

Ha ha The second one is quite smart answer. About putting paste in tube, no need to cut it, my few friends have done it without cutting anything. But they take more time for putting that paste again in tube with that small hall. But they put all past again in the tube.

Hi Shriniti Possible or not depends on many factors... that saying "Nothing is impossible" never says or implies it is possible for all... Lets start by the first toothpaste example - you may find it difficult, but the fact is that the companies that make the toothpaste do this thing - paste gets filled in those tubes. The re-becoming 10 happens when you grow old - shakespeare's play and the famous poem - "All the worlds a Stage" is the best example - the old age does make you relive most of the new born days... and personally, I believe if you have a pure mind set and a clean heart... well you can re-live the age - I do live in an age younger than what I am really in. Being immortal - I am immortal as long as I am alive (and destined to live, no one can kill me before my time arrives)! You summed the answer itself in the last statement when you say -"Nothing that is practical is impossible" - Practical is not the same for all - something that works fine for you may never even work for me... As this is subjective and so is the meaning of the word Impossible! Good discussion and I love such discussions dear

CBSE? I too read that sometime during that age... I already mentioned I dont understand poems much or even those novels. I have nothing much to do during summers... and during rains, my arthritis doesnt allow me to work... and when it is winters I am busy eating the fresh veggies and that goes against my Ulcerative Colitis issue...Amidst all these, the only thing that I can do with almost a zero investment is "think"... Have to do something at least to keep all happy I am eagerly awaiting you to be permitted to use emoticons... I am sure your discussions and responses would be more exciting with those (your avatar colored tiny smilies, dear)

I thought they put the paste and then make the tube? See how stupid i am! But i never wanted to think about it, i'm so lazy to think about it as well-i got stole it from one of my friends! (LOL) OMG! I had that poem in my 10th standard..I love that poem anyway, but you're having an answer for my EVERY question! That's upsetting me anyway (WINKS) I understand why you are called "thinker" by everyone!So it is the way we take the word impossible as.. Okay!And thanks :) (that's not for responding anyway--i said it for you said my discussion is good--) (WINK) For your answer anyway - (WHISTLES)

Ah!But we had a teacher who spoons us with poems..Would you wonder- she took Julius Caesar's one part for about one month! I admire her anyway!She was soo good in English! Yes,CBSE always! Love this board anyway! I'm also eagerly waiting for it..I would have already crossed 400 if it were including the comments as well! Sad they don't include looking at people like us!

For every thing there are some contradictions in our life. Even in mathematics there are some contradictions. Like wise there some contradictions in our daily life. Those includes the ones which you had mentioned above.

Yes there are CONTRADICTIONS! For example like we have in this discussion where you say Science is everything and i (at the beginning) didn't! Anyway-- I was kidding now! You could go to mathematical proofs and look at how they proved root of 2 was irrational! Wait-- i thought we were having fun! Why go to proofs now? i was not so good with those anyway!

So now what you want to say is 'Nothing that is practical is impossible'? So is that going to be the conclusion of this discussion? But see, they might have given it like that, the way they told, and it conveys the same.But with people like you in world, maybe they should have been a little more careful about things like this and adding 3 words between could not make much of a difference in it.. I am sorry for them who have fallen in your court! And your words... My take.. Maybe you say this because it is impossible for you to control your sister and come here to the computer to myLOT? :D

Some interesting comments here. It is so true that we do age, and what we do with our life as we age is up to us, with the help of god's hand if we allow it. The only things that are impossible is going back in time, going back to 10 when you're 30, and anything you let stand in your way from getting there. It is true nothing that is practical is impossible. It might just take some work to get there.

Well, I think the right section where to post this strange question, is the "humor". In fact what you wrote, when all things are impossible. This is true for the present time, but I the near future, who could tell? You never know!

No my friend.Science has made everything possible by making theories.Our job is to find the theory.We do not make science,science has already made everything!!our job is to find out them!!No matter how intelligent you are,if science does not have the sufficient theory,you will not be able to invent anything!!At that time impossible comes.But science have everything explained!!That is why every thing is possible!!

I never thought about the future because this saying was there already before i was born.. SO at that stage, there might have been many things(when compared to now) that were impossible, right? It's not just "Science" that makes everything possible! We humans have brains which we use with the help of science to make things possible! And.. About the category, guess i was in a haste! (WINK)

Hi Shrinithi, There are many other things which are impossible like "breaking a wall from head for me is impossible". This statement is again for the possible things which is in the reach of humans not for those things which itself are out of our reach. So next time when you see someone dying don't tell him to try to live as nothing is impossible.

Hi SJ That statement can be possible... Just pic a enemy you hate most and try with his head, I am sure you will break either head or wall.

Look.Everything is really possible in this world i agree with this statement.You said about the toothpaste and you said about being younger and being immortal.All these are possible in the future civilization.In olden days people used to think that radio was impossible.They told that radio was even very difficult to imagine.After radio was invented people were stunned by this result.We are not stunned because it was invented before our birth and also there are more lots of advanced things than this.Our civilization is not that advanced to make us immortals or to make us younger.So you have now understood that science makes everything possible.So nothing is impossible!!! Even the word "impossible" says " I m(am) possible"

We can get the toothpaste back in the tube by using a needle. You know I mean! A syringe. Ok, so some of us aren’t nurses but we can certainly be 10 sometimes if we are young at heart. I get what this discussion is saying but it depends on context. Writer are immortal because of their thoughts, emotions and records in books. Their work lives on though there are no guarantees if someone writes a book it will survive or be read. Some just don’t. Not everything is possible if we are talking about something we think can not be done.

"Nothing is impossible in this world." I think this sentence prefer to emphasize human's attitude and determination which they want to change the world.For example, if you do a practise target to reach, you have much confident to do stictly as specify; maybe you can creat a achievement to completed.This is not a truth as everyone known common sense. I think it isn't a common sense. We often say this sentence like that. Hi guys! Don't lose your heart,come on. Nothing is impossible in this world, if you work hard and dedicate your energy.So this words just encourage somebody to up.Although we also something we can't change anymore like time never comeback. But we still foucs on human positive spirit to arranage your life.

hi shrinithi oh my before coffee and b reakfast nothing is possible but after coffee and breakfast anything is possible.As Thoreau said its okay to dream but now put a foundation under your dreams. imagine something, find out how to do it, then work to make it a reality them put the floor under it, realize your dream by making it come alive. If we can dream something up surely then we can make it come true.It may take more than one try bu t we can make our dreams into realities.

Hello Ma'am! Yes so impossibility factor again- no breakfast and coffee! Of course.Even Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam said, Dream dream and Dream, Dream transforms into thoughts And thoughts results into action. So if we dream and as well take efforts to put it the right way of course we can succeed in our life.I'm sure this impossibility factor is going down anyway and will go down too!

hi shrinithi hope I have not responded before. I agree that which is practical is possible or nothing that is practical is impossible if we can imagine it and its something that could be practical then it could be made and it whatever it was would be a boon to mankind.so if we dreamt the impossible dream about a practical possibility we could make the dream come true.
