50 Fight Club Quotes

by Prashant Kumar Sharma

Gentlemen – Welcome to Fight Club. It’s time for change. We have to stop living a boring, robotic life where everything is a copy of a copy of a copy – as Tyler says. We have to wake the fuck up and understand that life is not what they’re telling us. Society is feeding us a lie – and that lie has to stop, today… now. There’s no more time for bullshit, no more time and no more tolerance for mind washing. We want the truth, we want freedom – not slavery.

Secrets behind Body Gestures !

by Prashant Kumar Sharma

Body gestures say a lot about a person – whether they look up or scratch their nose, or even tilt their head. Now, body language expert Peter Collett, author of the ‘Book Of Tells’ talks about the different gestures people make and what they mean.

2.    Looking up: If you look up, you’re seeking help from above. People with a sense of self-importance also do it, suggesting they’re in contact with the Almighty. Blinking: It’s a sign someone’s worried, excited or even lying as they’re under stress and thinking very rapidly.
