"The absolute,” La Maga was saying, kicking a pebble from puddle to puddle. “What is an absolute, Horacio?" "Look,” Oliveira said, “it’s just that moment in which something attains its maximum depth, its maximum reach, its maximum sense, and becomes completely uninteresting."

Here, I give you my blessing again. And just try to remember a few rules of life. Don't say what you're thinking, and don't be too quick to act on what you think. Be friendly to people but don't overdo it. Once you've tested out your friends and found them trustworthy, hold onto them. But don't waste your time shaking hands with every new guy you meet. Don't be quick to pick a fight, but once you're in one, hold your own. Listen to many people, but talk to few. Hear everyone's opinion, but reserve your judgment. Spend all you can afford on clothes, but make sure they're quality, not flashy, since clothes make the man—which is doubly true in France. Don't borrow money and don't lend it, since when you lend to a friend, you often lose the friendship as well as the money, and borrowing turns a person into a spendthrift. And, above all, be true to yourself. [To thine own self be true] Then you won't be false to anybody else. Good-bye, son. I hope my blessing will help you absorb what I've said. -William Shakespeare, Hamlet

I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it is not the answer.
-Jim Carrey

Street musings

Ghar ka khaana #undhyu 😋😋

You read and write and sing and experience, thinking that one day these things will build the character you admire to live as. You love and lose and bleed best you can, to the extreme, hoping that one day the world will read you like the poem you want to be. -Charlotte Eriksson

The voice, Afghan matchmakers say, is more than half of love. But I didn’t know that then, and my heart rushed in, where even matchmakers might’ve feared to tread.
-Shantaram

There's always a story. It's all stories, really. The sun coming up everyday is a story. Everything's got a story in it. Change the story, change the world.
-Terry Pratchett

Morning musings. A ray of light with a chai and a friend is what makes your Sunday beautiful.

But the lies we tell ourselves are the ghosts that haunt the empty house of midnight.

‘Loving someone is like moving into a house. At first you fall in love with all the new things, amazed every morning that all this belongs to you, as if fearing that someone would suddenly come rushing in through the door to explain that a terrible mistake had been made, you weren’t actually supposed to live in a wonderful place like this. Then over the years the walls become weathered, the wood splinters here and there, and you start to love that house not so much because of all its perfection, but rather its imperfections. You get to know all the nooks and crannies. How to avoid getting the key caught in the lock when it’s cold outside. Which of the floorboards flex slightly when one steps on them or exactly how to open the wardrobe doors without their creaking. These are the little secrets that make it your home.’
