Arundhati Roy
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Oscar Wilde
“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Stories

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Jane Austen
“I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan. Have you not seen this? Can you fail to have understood my wishes? I had not waited even these ten days, could I have read your feelings, as I think you must have penetrated mine. I can hardly write. I am every instant hearing something which overpowers me. You sink your voice, but I can distinguish the tones of that voice when they would be lost on others. Too good, too excellent creature! You do us justice, indeed. You do believe that there is true attachment and constancy among men. Believe it to be most fervent, most undeviating, in F. W.

I must go, uncertain of my fate; but I shall return hither, or follow your party, as soon as possible. A word, a look, will be enough to decide whether I enter your father's house this evening or never.”
Jane Austen, Persuasion

Caught (Drama)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: A rather corny but experimental piece that I wrote a very long time ago.
Oh, Look! (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: A very experimental poetry with a philosophical view on our mind.
Busy (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Wrote this in this mist of all exams. Interpret it as you wish. I have myself already recieved four different interpretations :)
To Suffocate (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Something I wrote quiet some time ago. I have no idea what posessed me to write it, it just happened. It's also a bit cheesy but if you understand it all, then you will get the point of it (such as the ending).
Rain (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:34PM
Description: Another experimental piece that I wrote several years ago but this one about rain.
