Quote of the Day
Mona Lisa looks as if she has just been sick, or is about to be.
You know, people call mystery novels or thrillers 'puzzles.' I never understood that, because when I buy a puzzle, I already know what it is. It's on the box. And even if I don't, if it's a 5,000-piece puzzle of the 'Mona Lisa', it's not like I put the last piece in and go, 'I had no idea it's the 'Mona Lisa'!'
I feel like vocals are to music what portraits are to painting. They're the humanity. Landscapes are good and fine, but at the end of the day everyone loves the Mona Lisa.

Owning the Yankees is like owning the Mona Lisa.
Actually, my real name is not Mona. It's Jasmeet. I changed it to Mona when I came to Mumbai.
I really believe that if you practice enough you could paint the 'Mona Lisa' with a two-inch brush.
I was to Japanese visitors to Washington what the Mona Lisa is to Americans visiting Paris.
