Top 10 Most Romantic Love Quotes

1.
“A kiss is a lovely trick, designed by nature, to stop words when speech becomes superfluous.”

2.

8.
“Each moment of a happy lover’s hour is worth an age of dull and common life.”
9.
“Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me.”
10.
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.
- Captain Corelli’s Mandolin6. “Love is the beauty of the soul.”

Top Ten fastest bikes in the world

10. Suzuki GSX-R750
On the number 10 spot is not a liter class bike but a 750 cc bike, the Suzuki GSX-R750. In 1985, this was the first bike which started the trend of sports bikes and later on super bikes. The 4 cylinder 3/4th liter motor develops 148 Bhp of surging power. This power combined with its light weight chassis ensures that the Gixxer reaches its top speed of 268 kmph really fast.


9. Ducati 1098S
Number 9 spot is taken up by the Ducati 1098S. When this bike was first revealed to the public in 2007, there was a frenzy of fans for this bike. This was the ideal machine for both the race track as also for daily road use. This Italian bike also boasts of having one of the highest power to weight ratios across all sections and road going bikes. This bike boasts of a top speed of 275 kmph from its 160 Bhp motor.

8. Honda CBR1000 RR
Number 8 space is occupied by the Honda CBR1000 RR. This bike was introduced in the year 2004 and the designers are none other than the ones who have built Honda’s Moto GP bikes. A 1 liter 4 cylinder liquid cooled engine does duty on this Fireblade enabling it to push out 178 Bhp. With all this power, the Honda could go only 1 kmph more than what the Ducati could do. However the Honda revved to a very high 13k rpm.
7. MV Augusta F4 R312
The MV Augusta F4 R312 is number 7 on our list and it is here for a good reason. Not only was this bike meant for racing purposes but it is also built with the intent of taking a lead in all the races that it participates in. It makes a cool 182 Bhp at 12,500 rpm. The top speed that one can muster on this Italian is 282 kmph.
6. Yamaha YZF- R1
On the number 6 position is the world famous Yamaha YZF- R1. This bike was a rage in 1998, the year that it was introduced and still is. The liter engine has got 16 valves with 4 cylinders and liquid cooling technology. Not only does the Yamaha achieve a top speed of 284 kmph but it also does 0-100 kmph in 3 seconds, just 0.1 seconds off the official timing of a Lamborghini Aventador.
5. Suzuki GSX-R1000
For the number 5th position is another Japanese, the Suzuki GSX-R1000, the bigger brother of the 750. While the R1 may not be attractive to look at, the Suzuki is one hell of a looker. Its 999 cc liquid cooled motor makes 192 Bhp of power at 12,100 rpm and this is enough to propel this bike to a top speed of 285 kmph.
4. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
Another Japanese slots in the number 4th position and this time it is Kawasaki making their debut in this list. The bike is the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. From its ram air induction technology and 1 liter engine, this Ninja produces 198 Bhp of power which is more than enough to take this bike to its designated top speed of 288 kmph. As far as its desirability goes, this bike has quite a reputation of getting stolen and has the most claims for theft insurance.

3. Kawasaki Ninja ( Ninja ZZR1400)
The most powerful Kawasaki Ninja, the Ninja ZZR1400 makes its debut in the number three position. From its 1400 cc engine, this bike develops 190 Bhp of power at as low or high as 9500 rpm. This is enough to propel it to a top speed of 300 kmph and at the same time racing from 0-100 kmph in only 2.8 seconds.

2. Suzuki Hayabusa
We are sure that all of you guys must be wondering where the Suzuki Hayabusa, the legendary motorcycle, would be. Well, here it is at number 2 position. It also has a reputation of being the most powerful bikes in production across the world. Superbikes cannot get more maniacal than this and the Hayabusa has proved it time and again. As of now, this Busa does 302 kmph top speed runs however earlier on, some of the stock Hayabusas were seen clocking 325 kmph on a regular basis. Suzuki had to restrict its performance as it was seen as a death machine by many.

1. BMW S1000RR
The BMW S1000RR. If you would have noticed, the battle for the top spot was always fought between Japanese however it is an unsung German which finally clinches the top honors. Various Motorcycle of the Year awards plus Machine of the Year tags means that this radical looking motorbike is one of the best in the industry. It produces 193 Bhp of power at lofty 13500 rpm and its top speed is in the regions of 306 kmph. Its performance is enhanced to a great effect by its 181 kgs dry weight. Its radical styling may not win it many fans but it is the fastest stock production bike in the world as of now.

Top 10 Lost Cities In World

10. Pavlopetri Greece
Whenever ‘lost cities’ are discussed Atlantis springs to mind. While there is no strong evidence that Atlantis existed outside of an allegorical tale by Plato many cities have suffered the supposed fate of Atlantis – being swallowed by the sea. Pavlopetri was a town of pre-Classical Greece that was settled in the Stone Age and persisted until ~1000 BC. That the site was submerged has given archaeologists a unique insight into life at the time. Other sites have been built over, or plundered for building material, or ploughed over by farmers, but Pavlopetri is uncontaminated. The town was likely submerged by rising sea levels and subsidence of the ground caused by earthquakes. Since sea levels have fluctuated widely over the course of human existence it is entirely likely that other such sites exist in the world’s oceans awaiting discovery.

9. Cliff palace Colorado
The Pueblo people, the Native Americans of the US southwest, are named for the villages (Pueblos) they construct. While there are still vibrant pueblo communities today, the Anasazi, an ancient pueblo society, flourished between 900 and 1200 AD. ‘Cliff Palace’ was constructed in this Golden age of the Anasazi; dendrochronology dates most of the buildings at the site to ~1200 AD. Occupation of the site was short lived and it was abandoned by 1300 AD. It remained undiscovered in the desert until 1888. While out looking for stray cattle Richard Wetherill, Charles Mason, and an Ute tribesman called Acowitz found the site nestled under a cliff wall. Their accidental discovery turned out to be the largest cliff dwelling in North America. ‘Cliff Palace’ is actually a misnomer as the site is more like a village than what we would understand as a palace. While the reason for the site’s abandonment is not certain the widely accepted theory is that the first of the great droughts, that has been linked to the collapse of the Anasazi golden age, disrupted farming throughout the region.

8. Akrotiri Santorini
The Minoan civilization of Crete is named for the mythical king Minos, builder of the labyrinth. There is scant written material left from the Minoans so we do not know what they called themselves. The entire civilization was largely forgotten until the turn of the 20th century. With the discovery of the great palace at Knossos the glories of the Minoans were rediscovered. Instead of the well known Knossos I have included a Minoan outpost, Akrotiri on the island of Santorini. Santorini, or Thera, is the home of the Thera volcano. It is now thought that the explosion of Thera around 1600 BC, one of the largest eruptions in recorded history, brought about the collapse of the Minoan empire. The discovery of Akrotiri in 1967 brought to light exceptionally well preserved frescos, homes up to three stories high, and a complex planned settlement. The water supply system suggests the people of Akrotiri had access to running hot and cold water, with the hot water provided by the very volcano which would destroy them.

7. Tikal Guatemala
The Mayan city of Tikal was once the capital city of a Mayan kingdom and a major city of the New World. The site was occupied from ~200-900 AD. Thanks to the almost perfect preservation of the city much is known about the grandeur of Tikal at its height as well as the powerful kings who ruled there. While the site is sometimes like other New World ruins listed as ‘mysteriously’ abandoned, research is showing that the land could not support the large number of people congregating in the city. Abandonment occurred over a number of years and the city was left for the jungles to grow over. It seems however, that some locals knew of its existence during those years for rumors of a lost city in the area persisted. The first organized expedition found the city in 1848. What they found was one of the largest surviving New World archaeological sites. There are pyramids up to 70m high, royal palaces, monumental stele and a playing arena for the Mayan ball game.

6. Timgad Algeria
Timgad, or Colonia Marciana Ulpia Traiana Thamugadi to Latinists, is the archetypal lost city from adventure stories. Once a vibrant city founded in the desert on the orders of the emperor Trajan it survived the upheavals of the empire and grew to a large trading city. After being sacked in the 5th century it was reborn as a center of Christian life. A second major sacking in the 7th century by Vandals led to the complete abandonment of the city. That is when the sands of the Sahara covered the site and preserved the city until its rediscovery in 1881. Now the ruins of the city give a brilliant insight into Roman cities of the African provinces. The streets follow a perfect grid, as you would expect from a city built to order. Today at the site you can see the arch of Trajan, the baths and the temple of Jupiter. The temple is as large as that of the pantheon in Rome, showing the importance of the city. A graffito in the forum reads “To hunt, bathe, play games and laugh. This is life.

5. Machu Picchu Peru
No list of lost cities is complete without Machu Picchu. This old Inca city sits on a peak in the Andes. It was only inhabited for a short period of time, likely 1450-1572 AD, before being abandoned as a result of the Spanish conquest of South America. Since Spaniards never found the city, and locals did not reveal its location, Machu Picchu only came to the attention of the West in the early 20th century. Debate still exists as to whether Machu Picchu was a regular settlement, a Royal retreat, or a religious sanctuary. To reach the site itself is now incredibly easy, with regular buses and trains. This has led to worries about the sustainability of large numbers of visitors there. However, given the wonderful views and the ruins themselves it is easy to see why people flock to Machu Picchu.

4. Mohenjo-daro Pakistan
Along with the Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations the Indus Valley civilization is considered one of the world’s earliest. The Indus Valley civilization reached its peak approximately 2000 BC, though was considerably older. Science, writing, trade, crafts, religion, and agriculture all progressed remarkably. The advanced nature of this civilization can be seen at Mohenjo-daro with its ordered streets and drainage system. Unlike other sites on this list there is no obvious palace or temple complex. This has led some to consider the Indus Valley civilization as egalitarian, however we know very little of the people who lived at Mohenjo-daro so such a statement is bold. Flooding of the Indus appears to have destroyed the city at least six times and new cities were built directly on top of the ruins of the previous ones. What caused the final abandonment is not clear but occurred around ~1800 BC and Mohenjo-dar was only rediscovered in 1922.

3. Petra Jordan
The inclusion of Petra may prove controversial as one can question whether it was really lost. It was certainly abandoned, but may have been very well known to locals. At any rate it was lost from Western knowledge for at least a thousand years. The ancient precursor of Listverse, Pliny the Elder, mentions Petra and it was taken into Roman rule in 103 AD. The city in the desert flourished until an earthquake destroyed the vital water system. With other cities available it seems it was easier to just abandon the site than rebuild. From then the site was left to the desert, attracting only curious travelers and grave robbers. Now it is one of the great archaeological sites in the Middle East. The city is half built and half carved from the red rocks of the hills it inhabits. The architecture is a fusion of Roman, Greek and native Nabataean. Really, no small text here can do credit to the remains of this city.

2. Troy Turkey
Sing, O Muse, the anger of Achilles son of Peleus…” So begins the Iliad of Homer, the foundational text of western literature. For all the importance placed in the Iliad it was for a long time thought that Troy was as mythical as Atlantis. Then in 1871 a self-taught classicist, Heinrich Schliemann, funded a dig at a mound in Hissarlik. There – where in ancient time a city called Ilium (named for the Iliad) had stood – they found huge defensive walls of the type described by Homer. As well as the walls of Troy, Schliemann discovered golden jewelry which he displayed as the jewels of Helen. This treasure was once thought lost after the Second World War but was in fact looted by the Soviets and can be found in the Pushkin museum. Modern excavations of the site have revealed the city to be large – large enough to be the basis of the ancient legend. They have also discovered the city was founded in around 3000 BC and destroyed multiple times. Each new city was built on the ruins of the last. There is a lively debate as to which of these layers might relate to the city besieged by the Greeks. Interestingly the mighty walls of the city would have far outstripped any siege weaponry available to the attackers at the time and therefore any siege would be protracted. This is just what the Iliad describes and explains the need for the trickery of the Trojan Horse.

1. Pompeii and Herculaneum Italy
There were some so afraid of death that they prayed to die.” So write Pliny the Younger of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. His uncle, the great elder Pliny, had taken the Roman fleet across the bay of Naples to rescue those people trapped at the foot of the volcano. The expedition would cost the elder Pliny his life as the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum were smothered in ash. The ash, which destroyed so many lives, perfectly preserved the two towns for 1700 years. While we often think of the ancient Romans as inhabiting a flawless world of white marble Pompeii reveals a real town with many features we would recognize today. Political slogans are daubed on walls; “Vote for Lucius Popidius Sabinus!” There is also fruitier graffiti on toilet walls. A mural shows a riot that occurred around the cities amphitheater. The city has been a gold mine for archeologists and is a major tourist site. Unlike the other cities here you can still see some of the inhabitants. Dotted throughout the ruins are the ghostly, and in many cases ghastly, plaster casts of the dead whose bodies left hollows in the ash.

Top 10 video games

1. Half-Life (1998)
When it was first released in 1998, gamers knew that Half-Life was going to be a great game. At the time, however, we had no idea that it would change the first-person shooter genre forever. In an era when the world of shooters was dominated by online titles such as Quake II, Half-Life offered gamers an amazing story-based experience. Playing as Gordon Freeman, Half-Life felt more like taking the lead role in a well-written action movie. If not for Half-Life, one could say that we wouldn't have had other great story-based shooters, such as Medal of Honor and Call of Duty.

2. Starcraft (1998)
Often compared to the various Warcraft and Command and Conquer titles that preceded it, Starcraft had some pretty large anticipatory shoes to fill. While the debate raged as to whether Starcraft was the best real-time strategy (RTS) title up to that time, the fact remained that with Starcraft, Blizzard did a great job of sticking to the RTS formula that was heralded in by Warcraft and Command and Conquer. With a great multiplayer mode, Starcraft's single player (or campaign) mode was both long and compelling. Players could choose from one of three races: the insectlike Zerg, the interstellar "everymen" Terrans, and the high-tech Protoss. The gameplay itself was so addictive that players often played the game through three times just to experience it from the perspective of all three races.

3. The Sims (2000)
Released in 2000, The Sims, created by Maxis, took the gaming world by storm. Having experienced success with the various Sim City titles, The Sims was unique: rather than managing cities, players got to manage the lives of their onscreen counterparts--everything from bathroom breaks to waking up and going to work. While this sounds like torture to many of us, the game was extremely successful. Popular among women gamers, The Sims spawned a veritable deluge of offshoots.

4. Quake (1996)
One of the best-looking games ever to be released, Quake introduced us to true 3D gaming. In conjunction with the ascendance of graphics chip maker 3Dfx, with Quake, games became not only three-dimensional, their textures were also greatly improved. Gone were the days of hideous pixelated graphics and simple aim-and-shoot gameplay. In Quake, perspectives looked correct, nails from nail guns whizzed by your head, and the gameplay gave birth to the vaunted keyboard-and-mouse gaming combination that was needed to aim up, down, left, and right, all while moving your character forward and backward as well as strafing left or right. And let's not forget that with a soundtrack created specifically for the game by Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails, Quake also introduced us to the idea of mainstream artists making music for video games.

5. Madden NFL Football (immemorial)
Now, in its 17th year, the Madden NFL Football series is the king of all sports games. Not so much a game as a lifestyle, I don't think there's a man alive who hasn't played Madden. While each year has seen significant changes to the game, some years have been better than others. For instance, many critics seem to think that Madden 2005 is better than the recently released Madden 2006. That said, there's no doubt that Electronic Arts will experience success with Madden 2006. Additionally, the game's reach is so deep, before every Super Bowl, players are chosen from each team to compete in a game of Madden. Up until recently, the team whose player won the Madden game won the big game, too.

6. EverQuest (1999)
When you think of massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG), EverQuest shines as the king of the genre. Often referred to as "EverCrack," the game's addictive gameplay and extensive online community has led to people making a real-world living selling in-game artifacts on eBay and meeting on EverQuest servers and getting married in the real world.

7. Halo (2001)
Released in 2001, Halo had to be a lot of things. Not only did it have to be a good game (the Halo-hype machine was immense), it was also the flagship launch title for the recently released Xbox. In other words, Halo had to be compelling enough to get people to shell out $300 for an as-yet-unproven console. Fortunately for Microsoft, Halo was a success. Not only was it a genuinely fun game to play, fighting to save the world as the Master Chief, Halo did a great job of showing off the Xbox's technological capabilities.

8. Metal Gear Solid (1998)
At a time when all shooters were of the "grab a big gun and shoot the hell out of everything and everyone in the room" variety, Metal Gear Solid was a breath of fresh air. As the venerable Solid Snake, in Metal Gear Solid, players were required to use stealth to save the world from a group of terrorists that had gotten their hands on...uh...some weapons of mass destruction. Like many of the games in this list, leaks about the game were rampant and hype was through the roof. Fortunately, the game was so enjoyable that once the game was released, no one minded all the hype.

9. Grand Theft Auto III (2001)
When it first came out, Grand Theft Auto III (GTAIII) took the gaming world by storm. With open-ended environments that gave players a ton of freedom, you could enjoy the game without diving into its more shady aspects. But where's the fun in that? Unless you've been living in a cave, you already know that GTAIII is about stealing cars, killing people, sleeping with hookers, and many other things that make the Mature rating seem appropriate. While it's easy to get distracted by GTAIII's over-the-top sleaziness, the fact remains that the actual gameplay is actually fun.

10. The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time (1998)
Originally released for the Nintendo 64 (N64), The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time represents what a platformer is capable of being. With a ton of side missions, minigames, and compelling puzzle levels, Zelda has spawned a ton of sequels and a gang of copycats
