And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
“A sudden happiness catches me unawares. I feel it trickling into me, and my eyes go liquid with gratitude and hope.”
Khaled Hosseini
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
“All my life, she gave to me a shovel and said, Fill these holes inside of me, Pari.”
Khaled Hosseini
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
“She is furious with herself for her own stupidity. Opening herself up like this, voluntarily, to a lifetime of worry and anguish. It was madness. Sheer lunacy. A spectacularly foolish and baseless faith, against enormous odds, that a world you do not control will not take from you the one thing you cannot bear to lose. Faith that the world will not destroy you.”
Khaled Hosseini

The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar
"This book ravaged my soul and kidnapped my heart. I don't believe I will ever be the same upon finishing this masterpiece of a novel. This book rocked me to my core; It changed every fiber of my being. The premise of this book is simple. However, wha" Read more of this review »

“it seemed that the pain of their physical illness at times was less than the misery of their poverty ridden existence, the unending wait in the queues and the feeling of hopelessness and abandonment by your own system was enough to rob them of their will power to fight any disease.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“She was not granted the luxury of forgetting her lower middle-class existence where life hangs by an unseen thread to every hope and where every slash of disappointment shrinks the life further.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“She realized that her undiluted love had also given him the power to hurt her but she decided that spirit of the soul can always transcend the pain of the ego.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
Ayn Rand

“There are ultimately two choices in life: to fight it or to embrace it. If you fight it you will lose - if you embrace it you become one with it and you'll be lived.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.
Delicious Ambiguity.”
Gilda Radner

“When you are angry with someone,at least you acknowledge that person’s existence. But with indifference,you kill him by invalidating his very existence.”
Madhu Vajpayee, Seeking Redemption

“It is your karma to fight evil. It doesn't matter if the people that evil is being committed against don't fight back. It doesn't matter if the entire world chooses to look the other way. Always remember this. You don't live with the consequences of other people's karma. You live with the consequences of your own”
Amish Tripathi, The Secret of the Nagas
