Heyllo, firstly I am overwhelmed to find that so many bloggers have ‘liked’, ‘followed’ and ‘commented’ on my blogs and page even though I have not been posting for the last couple of days. I am so happy because I never expected that something that I do for my mere desire, which is writing, will actually end up rewarding me through the appreciation of others! It feels like an extra trophy that I earned without even participating in a contest! So a gargantuan ‘THANK YOU’ goes to everyone who took the time to explore my little corner that I adore so much :)

Now, coming to the blog post of today: I have the habit of collecting quotes that inspire me, which are from books, movies, lyrics or just about anything. Hail to all those times when I didn’t just watch a movie or read a book, but also jotted down some quotes that appealed to me. Here is a little collection of it, enjoy!

 “Fear can hold you prisoner, hope can set you free”.

-Shawshank Redemption

“Don’t think that how many moments a life contains, but see how many lives does each moment contain”.

-Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.

 “People often overestimate what will happen in the next two years and underestimate what will happen in ten”.

-The Road Ahead

 “If you have a dream you got to protect it. Because others going to say you can’t since they can’t”.

-The Pursuit of Happiness

v-for-vendetta-1

 “People should not be afraid of their government; government should be afraid of their people”.

-V for Venedetta

“A human being can be destroyed but cannot be defeated”.

-The Old Man and the Sea

“Dare to dream and your dream will come true- or at least you will have fun and enjoy life”.

-A Midsummer Night’s Dream

  1. I especially love the quote about overestimating what will happen in the next two years and underestinating what will happen in the next ten. It has me thinking about not squashing every dream into the next two years, which is what I have basically done!

    • HI Diana, yes the quotes are really worth giving a thought as very often they resemble our own lives. I am glad you loved it and I wish that all your dreams come true in future. Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. This is such a beautiful post and something I should definitely do more myself when I read or watch something :) one of my favourites is in The Great Gatsby and says: “Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead.” – has taught me a lot about appreciating each other :) X
