Words and more. :)

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out...

But when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. 

Maybe if you reach out..
..Someone will reach back for you.

No matter where you end up, or who you end up with, 

it always ends up the way it should be.

There is nothing so pitiful as a young cynic because he has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing.

Walking away from you stopped being an option when you made love to me that night. 
I wish you knew that somehow without me having to say that to you...

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

~Harriet Tubman

"...And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun"

- Pink Floyd

I am not judged by the number of times I fail, 
but by the number of times I succeed; 

and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I can fail and keep on trying.

Sometimes the person you can't live with becomes the person you can't live without

Why do you like to kiss me, I don't think I will ever know, but I will not complain now I'd rather kiss and wonder how from nights last dusk to early dawn we'll kiss until you're gone.

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, can't it be mine

You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.

Change is a funny thing. We’re never quite sure what we’re becoming, or why. Then, one day we look at ourselves and wonder who we are and how we got there.

I wish we could have loved each other at the same time.

P.S: I miss you..

The sky isn't always blue. The sun doesn't always shine. So it's okay to fall apart sometimes.

I don't know how long we will last... 

But I know I will always remember how it felt pinning you down and kissing you senseless...

A kiss is just a kiss till you find the one you love... 
A hug is just a hug till you find the one your always thinking of...
A dream is just a dream till it comes true... 

Love is just a word till it's proven to you.

I wish he meant it when he kissed me cause then I could look back and see someone who loved me but I can only go back and see someone who used me.

P.S: I mean you.

There’s a reason the rear view mirror is so small and the windshield is so big....

.... Where you’re headed is much more important than what you’ve left behind.

The trouble is that you think you have time.

I’m thankful for every break in my heart, I’m grateful for every scar. 

It reminds me that it was all real.

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying."

-Woody Allen

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes into you."

-Friedrich Nietzsche

If you wanted to kill me all this time, you might as well have done it right the first time.

"Well, remember what you said, because in a day or two, I'll have a witty and blistering retort! You'll be devastated THEN!"
-Calvin & Hobbes

Without music life wouldn't be fair.

"A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."

~Roald Dahl

"I believe in long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown."
-Jim Morrison

There are more important things in life than whatever is bothering you today :)

Next to the wound, what women make best is the bandage.

"You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it."

-Paulo Coelho

Someday, someone is going to thank you for letting me go.

There are some days where you just have to hold yourself together because there is no one to glue you back together if you fall apart.

I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke.

There are only two types of people in the world - 

One, those who will kick a stone out of their way so that it hurts others,

And others, those who will kick a stone out of their way so that it doesn't hurt others...

P.S: Something that my colleague at work told me while in a conversation about the 1992' riots when Mumbai burned... It doesn't matter whether you are a Hindu or a Muslim... Ultimately you have to be one of these two people only. You choose who you want to be. :)

You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.

~ Eric Cartman (Southpark)

The worst thing about getting your heart broken is knowing 
that when you will cry yourself to sleep, 
you'll wake up and find that nothing has changed.

I have learned that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

When God solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities.

When he doesn't solve your problems, HE has faith in YOUR abilities.

Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for.

Some people can never believe in themselves, until someone believes in them.

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.

~Albert Einstein

Speak when you're angry, and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

Sometimes you only forgive someone because you can't stand not having them in your life.

If she's amazing, she won't be easy.
If she's easy, she won't be amazing.
If she's worth it, you won't give up.
If you give up, you're not worthy!

They say follow your heart.
But when your heart is in so many pieces.
Which way are you to follow? 

Just when you thought you had it all, it all falls apart.

Here’s to the Crazy Ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing that you can’t do, is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or, sit in silence and hear a song that hasn’t been written?
Or, gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world,
are the ones who do.

P.S: Its an Apple Ad .... But inspiring in some way...

I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are
Because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star
I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far 
For a might have-been has never been,
But a has was once an are.

Sometimes you need to run away ...
... just to see who will follow you.

Don’t ever let somebody tell you you can’t do something. …You got a dream, you gotta protect it… If you want something, go get it. Period.

-Christopher Gardner

(The man who's real life story was "Pursuit of Happyness")

Its never too late to be what you might have been.

you don't find your passion..
..it finds you.

When you take things for granted, the things you are granted are taken.

Always put yourself in the other's shoes. 
If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

P.S: One of my all time favs.

A soft heart gives one a hard time.

When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness,
instead keep your head up high and gaze into heaven 
for that is where your broken heart has been sent to heal.

You should do something nice for someone every single day, 
even if it is simply to leave them alone.

Don't chase me unless you are ready to catch me.

No photographer is as good as the simplest camera.

P.S: ... and with that this blog completes 200 posts. Thank you all for reading me.. :)

P.P.S: I am probably as passionate about photography as I am about writing ... So do check out my photoblog - Snapshots.

Coincidence decides to whom you meet in life. 

Your heart and your mind decide with whom you want to stay in life. 

But only destiny decides who gets to stay in your life.

Love that remains longest in your heart is the one that is not returned.

Trying to forget someone you love ...
...is like trying to remember someone you never knew.

Every goodbye makes the next hello closer.

I don’t miss him, I miss who I thought he was..

A bend in the road is not the end of the road… 

unless you fail to make the turn.

Where is the “good” in goodbye?

You don’t realize how much you care about someone until they don’t care about you.

Moving on is simple, it's what you leave behind that makes it so difficult..

There's this place in me where your finger prints still rest, your kisses still linger and your whispers softly echo. Your crooked smile that still draws a smile, and that laugh that still rings like from far far away..

It's that place where a part of you will forever be a part of me.

Just remember that your darkest hour is only 60 minutes

Somewhere there is someone who dreams of your smile, who finds in your presence that life is worthwhile. So when you are lonely, remember it's true, that somebody somewhere is thinking of you.

There will be a time when you believe everything is finished. 

That will be the beginning.

The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. 

- Mark Twain

Nothing in this world worth having comes easy.

It’s not what you are running from
It’s where you are heading to.

Someone once asked me, 'Why do you always insist on taking the hard road?' 

I replied, 'Why do you assume I see two roads?'

So... from now on... when you think of me... just remember that I could've been the best thing you ever had.

If you can't forget some things in life...
Make sure you don't give yourself time to remember them.

I don't fear your judgment 'cause I already know who I am.

Distance is to love like wind is to fire...
It extinguishes the small and kindles the great!

Sometimes the things that remind me of you.... I wonder if they remind you of me too?

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is. 

I believe in the latter.

"True love doesn't mean being inseparable; 
it means being separated and nothing changes."

If the only place where I could see you was in my dreams, 
I'd sleep forever.

Fireworks are great, but they go out quickly.


Love is not enough to sustain a relationship, 
but it's often enough to wreck your life.

Real loss only occurs when you lose something that you love more than yourself.

"Distance means so little when someone means so much."

Never in a million years did I think I'd find someone so utterly and completely perfect, someone who would make me happier than I ever dreamed I could be, someone that would touch my life so profoundly and just give me a whole new reason to breathe. 

But then I found you and realized that everything I anticipated you to be, doesn't even compare to what you are. :)

P.S: For You.

"The heart has its reasons that reason does not know." 


My crown is called content, a crown that seldom kings enjoy.

~ William Shakespeare

It’s better to have never felt the happiness of love 
than to be tortured by the pain of it ending.

I hope someday you'll find all my quotes,
all my words, and read them all.
I hope you'll know that they're all about you
and when you read them
I hope that at least a single tear
will roll down your handsome face.

I'm jealous of every girl who has ever hugged you, because for that one moment they held my entire world in their arms.

I plan on marrying that boy one day.
He better plan his future accordingly.

The best way to succeed in life is to act on the advice we give to others.

Dear girl,
                   Don't mess this one up.
                   I think he is the one

Your heart.

Smiles give you friends
frowns give you wrinkles.

If he was stupid enough to walk away
be smart enough to let him go.

The entire sum of existence is the magic of being needed by just one person.

The cracks in the concrete remind that no matter how strong you are...
you will always fall apart at some point in your life.

After a while, you learn the difference between holding a hand, and falling in love. You'll learn kisses don't always mean something. Promises can be broken just as easily as they were made, and as hard as it is to believe, sometimes goodbyes are forever.

Love is when he gives you a piece of your soul you didn't know you were missing.

Beautiful light is born of darkness, so the faith that springs from conflict is often the strongest and the best.

God is so good. 
He knows where a person will be happy, where they can love and be loved, where heaven on earth is. 

Now I know why he put me near you.

When you whispered in my ear, you whispered in my heart, and when you kissed my lips, you kissed my soul.

Remember every new beginning, is some beginning's end..

The times in life, that seems to be the worst, always turn out for the best!

One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.

"Sometimes someone says something really small, and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart."

P.S: I hope this place does that for you :)

When you're dreaming with a broken heart
The waking up is the hardest part.

“What does not kill me makes me stronger”

Perhaps I saw what I wanted to see in him and made him to be more than he was.

I've been laying here all night, listening to the rain. Talking to my heart and trying to explain. Why sometimes I catch myself wondering what might have been. Yes I do think about you, every now and then...

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning.

A smile takes but a moment..
but the memory of it lasts forever.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

Beginnings are scary.
Endings are usually sad.

But it’s the middle that counts the most.

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon...
...but that we wait so long to begin it.

I'm tired of being sad.
I'm tired of crying.
I'm tired of feeling empty inside.
I'm tired of feeling worthless.
I'm tired of feeling stuck.
I'm tired of being alone.
I'm tired of yelling.
I'm tired of keeping silent.
I'm tired of pretending.
I'm tired of dreaming of a life I will never have.
I'm tired of missing things. I'm tired of missing people.
I'm tired of remembering.
I'm tired of wishing I could start all over.
I'm tired of not being able to just let go.
I'm tired of faking it.
I'm tired of being different.
I'm tired of being angry at things I cant change.
I'm tired of always wondering when God is finally going to let me be happy.

Most of all, I'm just I'm tired of being tired.

The things people say or do to you

Says more about them

Than about you.

Sometimes I wonder if anyone besides me has
laughed really really hard the outside and cried really really hard on the inside...
at the same time?

People are like stained glass windows...
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in..
their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.

Found this lovely PostSecret last week, and damn it is so bloody true...

Rock bottom is good solid ground,

and a dead end street is just a place to turn around.
Never ever give up hope.

There are no mistakes... Only lessons.

The day you realize that YOU are more important than your past,
you will be a happier person.

Maybe I'm so caught up in getting over him I don't notice the perfect person that is sitting right in front of me...

... Actually I'm starting to think he is standing up and doing a dance.

I love sleep. My life has this tendency to fall apart when I'm awake.

For someone who is supposed to be super smart, you do an awesome job ignoring the obvious.


A broken heart is so damn hard to mend.....


I do not miss your love, but the recklessness of my own.

I get the best feeling in the world when you say hi to me, or even smile when you speak to me... because I know even if just for a second... I crossed your mind.

If He has brought you to it, He will also hold your hand through it.

P.S: Im not a religious person at all, but this one is for the people who are.

Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

-- Khalil Gibran.

For everything you have missed, you have gained something else...
For everything you gain, you lose something else.

Its your outlook towards life - you can either regret or rejoice.

I used to think that if I loved you enough you would realize it and love me back, but I can only love so much for so long.

Its time for me to move on now.

P.S: For Iddy. You know who the 'you' is :)

If people can't accept your imperfections, that’s their fault.

I know I made a lot of stupid mistakes in my life, but the worst one was thinking the person who hurt me the most wouldn't hurt me again.

“For a long time it puzzled me how something so expensive, so leading edge, could be so useless. And then it occurred to me that a computer is a stupid machine with the ability to do incredibly smart things, while computer programmers are smart people with the ability to do incredibly stupid things. They are, in short, a perfect match.”

-- Bill Bryson

P.S: :D SO true!

"You may not be her first, her last, or even her only.
she loved before she may love again
But if she loves you now, what else matters?
Shes not perfect, you arent either
& the two of you may never be perfect together
but if she can make u laugh, cause u to think twice
and admit to being human and making mistakes
hold onto her and give her the best you can
she may not be thinking about you every second of the day,
but she will give u a part of her that she knows you can break her heart

So dont hurt her, dont change her, dont analyze
& dont expect more than she can give

Smile when she makes u happy
let her know whn she makes u mad
& miss her whn shes not there"


I wish I could tell you that I missed you a LOT while you were away. Instead I just pretend to be irritated that you are back.

I can be found here :)

I can be found here :)

What is this place?

There's one thing a quote does that nothing and no one else can do... it can become a part of you. You may never meet the person who said it but that person is now a companion. Quotes help you get over pain, feel love, make you smile and laugh, and helps you through those tough days when you think that no one knows what you're going through.
