'The Godfather' - Worth Remembering Quotes

Carefully and painstakingly crafted movie -The Godfather. Incredibly strong script, cut throat decisions, lasting moments, nerve breaking sequences, chilling twists and extremely sharp dialogues makes me to watch this movie often.

I have captured some of the very thoughtful and deep impacting dialogues from the characters of 'The Godfather'.

"I am going to make him an offer he can't refuse"

"Why did you go to the police? Why didn't you come to me first?"

"Never hate your enemies, it affects your judgment."

"Fredo you are my older brother and I love you so much, but never take side with anyone against the family ever"

"Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. But uh, until that day, accept this justice as a gift on my daughter's wedding day"

"Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer."

"Never let anyone know what you are thinking."

"So, Barzini will move against you first. He'll set up a meeting with someone that you absolutely trust guaranteeing your safety and at that meeting you'll be assassinated."
My father made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
What was that?
Luca Brasi, held a gun to his head, and my father assured him, that either his brain or his signature would be on the contract.

"It's an old habit. I spent my life trying not to be careless. Women and children can be careless but not men"

"Every family has bad memories"

"Friendship and money...oil and water"

"That he got from you, that no"

"My credit good enough to buy you out?"

"The only wealth in this world is children. More than all the money, power on earth."

"Where does it say that you can't kill a cop?"

"Do you spend time with your family? Good. Because a man that doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man."

"Times have changed. It's not like the Old Days, when we can do anything we want. A refusal is not the act of a friend."

"What have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, then this scum that ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you. "

"Mr. Corleone never asks a second favor once he's refused the first, understood?"

"I don't like violence, Tom. I'm a businessman; blood is a big expense."

"Michael, I lost all the venom, all the juice of youth. I lost the lust for women and now my mind is clear. My duty to god is clear."

"I have a problem and I want to find out if it is my problem or your problem."

"I don't need tough guys, I need more lawyers."

"I never wanted this for you. I work my whole life - I don't apologize - to take care of my family, and I refused to be a fool, dancing on the string held by all those bigshots. I don't apologize - that's my life - but I thought that, that when it was your time, that you would be the one to hold the string. Senator Corleone; Governor Corleone. Well, it wasn't enough time, Michael. It wasn't enough time."

"Don't ask me about my business, Kay."

"Don't overestimate the power of forgiveness"

"I have a sentimental weakness for my children and I've spoiled them as you can see. They talk when they should listen."

Why Akbar was Great?

I have fanatical interest to be acquainted with what made Indian emperors take influential decisions during their reign. Few great kings’ valuable decisions created a remarkable history.

When Akbar accepts the marriage proposal of Hindu King (Bharmal of Amer), he wishes to make an attempt to set an example for two culture and religions and convey the message of peace. Later, destiny takes him to the critical path of life having most depraved political and family oriented problems. Being a true great emperor, Akbar learns and conclude challenges by demonstrating his exceptional leadership qualities. With his verdicts, Akbar stands as an incomparable king of all time. “Jodha Akbar” – brings 16th-century incidents to life and shows beginning part of Akbar’s married life which was, in fact, a deal for political gain. This decision slowly unleashes Akbar’s loving life, internal dreadful politics, painfully desirous people around him and betraying family members.

Windows Service or Windows Task Scheduler?

Are you planning to create long running background process (in C#) and thinking to build a Windows service?

Then wait for a moment!

Windows Task scheduler (Start->Programs->Accessories-> System Tools-> Task Scheduler) can also be a decent choice!

"Windows Vista and higher windows (server) operating systems are offering matured Task scheduler with many advancements like Triggers, Actions, Conditions, failure recovery, email notifications, security and much more."
Its obvious that many programmers think Windows Service is easy to maintain and what it can do, task scheduler can’t. But now, it’s time to look at Windows Task Scheduler [also at Microsoft white paper] and see what great features it is offering.

When to go for Windows Service?
Okay, let me try to answer this popular question in one line. 

Windows Service is suitable for receiving service request 'anytime' and process 'instantly'.

Just think of anti-virus scanner, network port activity tracker…
