And now let me end this Blog with some Quotes for you:
Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life. - Anon
People who love only once in their lives are....shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. - Oscar Wilde
To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. - C.S. Lewis
You know that when I hate you, it is because I love you to a point of passion that unhinges my soul. - Julie de Lespinasse
Instead of putting others in their place, put yourself in their place. - Anon
Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love. - Neil Gaiman
It is with words as with sunbeams - the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn. - Robert Southey
It is twice the pleasure to deceive the deceiver. - Jean De La Fontaine
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. - Martin Luther King Jr.
A flower blossoms where there is love, not where there is apathy. - Aparna Chatterjee
