“A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and Honest people are screwed first.”

be honest and get on with ur life. even if that means being cut down first.

“Even if a snake is not poisonous, it should pretend to be venomous.”

soon someone will figure out the truth. hence no point in pretending something that u dont have.

“The biggest guru-mantra is: Never share your secrets with anybody. ! It will destroy you.”

so true. but that is the reason relationships are so complex. somewhere u have to trust someone with ur secrets. else the world will be running mad.

“There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.”

definitely i disagree. it more or less depends on the person. there are people who offer friendship without expecting something. how about me 🙂 haha just kidding.

“Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions – Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.”

crap, these things should come to you automatically. you cant put across a checklist and verify whether you are doing all these 3 things.

“Treat your kid like a darling for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends.”

“Books are as useful to a stupid person as a mirror is useful to a blind person.”

there is no person who is stupid. stupidity is the lack of insight and and knowledge both of which can be learnt, developed etc. for a blind person , someone has to give eyes. stupid person can help himself and make good use of the book. so i think we are making wrong comparisons here.

“Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.”

Education and books are related. U start getting educated right from the moment u were born. The words you mother taught, the experiences u have gone through, which book taught you to walk, think . I presume none. SO education and books are not that closely related to say that the above 2 ideaologies are contradicting.
