Now I take the floor
Outside hardens the core
As I start to grow
I see the long way to go

Rapid Fire!!!

Over dinner, was trying to come up with single word for words that generally came across my mind.

It goes as below

Job – Comfort (gets you into comfort zone)
Money – Crazy (can drive you crazy)
Society – Change (needs change)
Country – Citizens (is build by its citizens)
Hobbies – Choice (are alternate choices)
Life – Creation (is all about creation)
Death – Certain (is certain)
Nature – Cajole (always cajoles its children)
God – Controller (is supreme controller)
Fight – Cause (for a cause)
Friendship – Care (is about care)
Love – Convenience (isn’t it all about convenience?)
Marriage – Compatibility (survives if the persons involved are compatible)
Parents – Compassion (synonymous to compassion)

What comes across your mind? Do get back to me.

@Kavitha
There are no rules. Just write whatever comes to your mind. Anyway, that was an excellent contribution. Thanks a lot

@Ashutosh

Love - Convenience?
Its more like-> Love ---> consequence ( of foolishness )

Job -> Comfort.
Having a job these days gives a sense of comfort! Or do you have a decent boss?

If I juggle some of your pairs ----

Job – Change.
Parents – Controller
Love – Crazy
Friendship – Comfort
Nature – Compassion ( and forgiving )
Money – Cause ( of misery )
Death – Convenience

@Agastya
That reordering looks cool. But I still feel that love is all about convenience

Quite a good idea actually. Could keep you thinking for quite a while.

Here is my list, albeit a longgg one.

Life->Puzzle
Love->Unconditional
Luck->Indispensable (factor in success)
Work->Unavoidable (our dreams of retiring early remain just that - dreams)
God->Myth (But very real in minds)
Art->Quality
Mother->Priceless
Society->Judgmental
Nationalism->Fake
Politics->Cynicism
Economics->Undeveloped (we could hardly understand economics even after witnessing countless cycles)
Philosophy->Consummate (of all disciplines)
Objectivism->Naive
Science->Progress (Science represents progress and is often held back by religion)
Stimulus->Inconsequential (This recession is proving lord Keynes wrong)
Recessions->Inevitable
Religion->Steroid (Can work, but is a quick fix, and sometimes wreaks havoc)
Communism->Irrational
Friend->Memento (Your friends are a link to your past)
Morality->Nuanced
Literature->Seductive (I am slowly being turned a leftist, thanks to A.Roy)
Mathematics->Queen(among sciences)
Feminism->Idealistic
Environment->Precious
Nature->Stimulating
Stigma->Crippling
Knowledge->Strength
