“Taking a page out of Vinayak’s blog (literally), this is just to help me keep track of some of the best quotes that I come across while I trawl through life.
To start off:
“To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour.” William Blake
“Revolution is not a dinner party, not an essay, nor a painting, nor a piece of embroidery; it cannot be advanced softly, gradually, carefully, considerately, respectfully, politely, plainly and modestly.”
“Where man in all his truest glory lives,
And nature’s face is exquisitely sweet;
For those fair climes I heave impatient sigh,
There let me live and there let me die.” -Michael Madhusudan Dutt
“Upon seeing the shadow of a pigeon, one must resist the urge to look up” -Confucius
“Aisa hai…… ki kaisa hai?” -Unknown
“Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity, and so we ask ourselves..will our actions echo across the centuries, will strangers hear our names long after we are gone and wonder ..who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved.” – Unknown
“Love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love – well, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived.”- William Parrish in Meet Joe Black
“Frankly my dear, fuck off.”- Unknown.
