Thinking about sayings

When I first started to write this blog I titled it  " Thinking about thoughts"  but then later on I switched to the current topic . Ask me a reason ? . To write down about the inner person is tough . I am not capable to do that or in other words discussing an existentialist characteristic is easy. What people say , why they say and what made them say is not my matter of concern in this blog. I just want to analyse what people hear and remember and why do they remember only a few and not all .  Is the reason just because of mental capability or is it something else.
                                 Each time you click on site with quotes and sayings you will find quotes by great men whose thinking has formed the spine of our society. Such people sayings inspire the young generation and  had kept the past generations alive and lively. But suddenly one day a thought struck my mind with a great blow . I changed the whole circumstances and I imagined myself at the lecture hall where these quotes were said and in the next situation I went on to read the book where another great words of wisdom were written and in the next  I took myself to be the ghost in a talk show which was broadcast-ed on a television channel and here too great words were uttered ( just going off the topic we all are ghost when we switch on the television because we see them but they don't  ,although we are the wanted ghosts , everybody loves to have such ghosts). After so many situations , a simple fact ran into my mind " speed of light is greater than speed of sound". By this I mean simply great words of wisdom are not always said by great men but great men always say great words of wisdom. Its not the words which make the sentence a quote it is the person who does. And I feel it natural but highly biased .
                             Can a normal person who is not a philosopher , freedom fighter , politician , actor , singer, leader , say words of wisdom? , he does say but we ought not to remember . we only remember what we want to . Ask a teen a thought said by Martin Luther king or Mahatma Gandhi or ask a mid 40s person a thought from the uprising model or pop diva or ask a thought from Lady Gaga from some one of an age of 60s . They may even question you the existence of such names.
    People pay attention to whose speaking and then they think of what is spoken . So the next time when you are saying some words of wisdom and people don't listen to you , don't think that your words are rubbish or trash it may be that you have not made your mark in there minds till yet.
                                                       Thanks for reading and have a nice day.
