Your value doesn’t decrease based upon someone’s inability to see your worth.

Allah knows all, hears all, and cherishes your effort.

There are certain emotions in your body that not even your best friend can sympathize with, but you will find the right film or the right book, and it will understand you. Björk

I am sick of trying to find homes in people’s hearts, and being thrown out all the time. I think the only home I need to build for myself is the one in my heart. So that I realise that I am enough for myself. (via coolstorybhaijaan)

There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep and still be counted as warriors. Adrienne Rich (via larmoyante)

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping.
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.

Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.

Man alone measures the time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.

A fear of time running out.

Mitch Albom

zubat:

Don’t ever try to play that “I have it worse than you do” game with people. Don’t ever try to minimize someone else’s problems or invalidate their feelings just because you or someone else may have it worse. To imply that their problems “aren’t that bad” or their feelings are “irrational” is very insulting and unnecessarily rude. That’s an insensitive, inconsiderate and horrible thing to do to someone. Don’t be that jackass.

Do not be afraid to be weak. Do not be ashamed to be tired. You look good when you’re tired. You look like you could go on forever. Now come into my arms. You are the image of my beauty . Leonard Cohen (via aestheticintrovert)

The pen will never be able to move fast enough to write down every word discovered in the space of memory. Some things have been lost forever, other things will perhaps be remembered again, and still other things have been lost and found and lost again. There is no way to be sure of any this. Paul Auster (via aestheticintrovert)

Jo baat thi unko kehne ki
Wo baat hi kehna bhul gaye
Gairon ke fasane yaad rahe
Hum apna fasana bhul gaye

 nazron ne kuch aisa jaddo kiya loot gaye hum to pehli mulaqat mein 

- Nustrat Fateh Ali Khan

I want my daughter to shudder when I talk about the time I grew up in. I want my son to say “Was it really as bad as that?” when I speak about injustice. I want my child to curl up in my lap and whisper, “But people didn’t know better back then, right mommy?”

Because I want to say, “No, they didn’t, did they? Things are much better now, don’t worry.”

But I’m terrified that if we keep picking our teeth with the bones of our neighbors, there won’t even be a future.
