With Eid close by,rows upon rows of glassy bangles, chunky 'kaaras' compete for attention in Lahore's Liberty Market. While I adore bangles, and have too many to count,--this season the kind on display are super-sparkly. By sparkly I mean---tons of multi-colored glitter, plastic stones in every shade of the rainbow--so much so that the beauty has been lost beneath the clutter.
-Dialogue from the movie: Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
Perhaps to be lovingly forgotten is better than to be hatefully remembered.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you believe in luck
you relinquish all control
to some abstract wind-like deity
wearing a Lady Gaga outfit.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. -Maya Angelou
