10 uncommon quotes to live by

10 uncommon quotes to live by- bedtime blabber
For someone who talks as much as I do, even I find it contradictory that I enjoy listening to the words said by others. But I do. And like the hopeless romantic Mandy Moore was in ‘a walk to remember’ i too keep an old-fashioned, hardcover journal full of quotes and sayings that speak to my ever searching and curious heart. So here are some of the Quotes that I love most (today).






Dreams...

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible."- T.E.Lawrence

Peace...

"Some find therapy in profound meaningful conversations with a friend, while some with strangers. Some find it in the embrace of a loved one, a kiss perhaps, while some find therapy in solitude.
Some find therapy in reading a book while some in drinking coffee at 2 am alone in the balcony. Some find it in traveling while some find it in counting post midnight stars.
Some seek therapy in prayer to God, while some find it in the simple, idea of death."- Anonymous

Expression...

"You ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us.
Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down are honest with those who are important to you.
Express, Express, Express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who you are, and how you love. There is courage in that."- Anonymous

Creativity/Inspiration...

"We all have slow days, off days, days we feel tired or uninspired, but they are nothing to concern yourself with. Like the ocean, the stillness is just another of our natural states. Soon, the winds will pick up, the waves will rise, and your imagination will flow freely again."- Beau Taplin

Strength...

"You're always one decision away from a totally different life."- Anonymous

This quote always makes me feel hopeful. Like all I need to do is get up, find my direction and walk that path to where I want to be. #nevergiveup


Heartache...

"Letting go always hurts, no matter how much sense it makes. If they meant something to you, it'll take time for them to escape your heart."-Najwa Zebian

Zebian is the author of 'Mind Platter' and 'The Nectar of Pain', poetry books about love, life, pain, loss and so much more. Look for her books. 

Love...

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, Bible

I love quotes from scriptures- no matter what religion- because it shows how universal our basic needs, beliefs, desires, and hopes are.



Perfection...

"Flaws aren't real. One of our biggest mistakes as a culture is accepting that we have 'flaws'. We indeed, do not have flaws. We have differences, we have different paths of learning and growth. Why do we continue to perpetuate the degradation of our culture by accepting this mindset? There's no such thing as a flaw in a system where perfection does not exist."- Anonymous

Faith and Smarts...

"Trust in Allah (God), but tie your Camel."- Prophet Mohammade p.b.u.h.

I love this quote; it reminds me that faith/hope without action is the definition of a pipe dream. So, if you want it pray for it and get to work. Simple. 



Finally, a quote by yours truly.

Truth...

"Despite the truth being absolute and true, the fact that it is singular and alone makes it an easy target, which can be covered and drowned in a sea of lies"- Halima Bello Husseini
