“Life is what happens while you are making other plans.” – John Lennon

Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth.

~Ludwig Börne

TRAGEDIES:

Tragedies do happen. We can discover the reason., blame others, imagine how our life would be had they not occurred. But none of that is important: they did occur, and so be it. From there onward we must put aside the fear that they awoke in us and begin to rebuild.

-Paulo Coelho.

    I can’t get enough of quotes. Some people’s words just never die, and never should. I like what Bruce Lee said: Knowing is not enough: one must DO.

      Miss Maqsood!
      Thankyou for coming! This quote by Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib is great and holds so much truth! Thanks a whole lot for sharing.. 🙂

      “I am amazed at the heart of man: It possesses the substance of wisdom as well as the opposites contrary to it … for if hope arises in it, it is brought low by covetousness: and if covetousness is aroused in it, greed destroys it. If despair possesses it, self piety kills it: and if it is seized by anger, this is intensified by rage. If it is blessed with contentment, then it forgets to be careful; and if it is filled with fear, then it becomes preoccupied with being cautious. If it feels secure , then it is overcome by vain hopes; and if it is given wealth, then its independence makes it extravagant. If want strikes it, then it is smitten by anxiety. If it is weakened by hunger, then it gives way to exhaustion; and if it goes too far in satisfying its appetites, then its inner becomes clogged up. So all its shortcomings are harmful to it, and all its excesses corrupt it.”
      ― Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib

  5. fahaad humayun says:

    Hope, in reality, is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.

    Talking much about oneself can also be a means to conceal oneself.

    (Friedrich Neitzsche)
