“I'd rather be not the light in your life
The bright day might make me obscure
I'd rather be the cold darkness
For it remains, unseen, uncertain and unsure”

A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

“Life is always uncertain. No one knows what's in there. But now my life is everywhere, I would just like to breathe and sleep and get all the rest I could. I wake up five in the morning some days just thinking about my own thoughts and stare blankly in thin air. Not sure what I am looking at but I know for a fact I am in my own world. Those times I am just inside my head just thinking about what is ahead.”
Happy Positivity Blankly Ahead

Sanhita Baruah
“A world full of "certainties"
All the plans, all the vanities.
Where black covers the white
Suited in "confidence"- the constant fight.
A million roads I dream to take
One destination, knowing not I turn where.
A green veil covers for two years, some two decades.
But the "plan" awaits, new roads to make.
I pant, I struggle, I do my best
While they say,
"You are, dear, but so inadequate".”
Sanhita Baruah

Sanhita Baruah
“It's that feeling you get somehow knowing that something great is about to happen... about to happen.
While every passing day nothing great really does happen. You wake up, go to classes, study, sleep and wait for another monotonous day.
You know the great day is not tomorrow, not even the day after, not even in a week or a month's time.
But it says it will come soon, the way you live your life, one day at a time, only to realize 20 years have elapsed effortlessly.
It will come soon, the way you meet someone without expecting or knowing that you are going to have so much fun together.
It will come soon, the way dreams come true overnight- demanding years of perspiration, ironically.
It will come soon like a gush of cold air in a hot afternoon.
It will come soon like a stranger you feel you have already met.
It will come like a guest who would be here to stay.
It will come like an eternity, a serendipity, an irony.
It will come when it is time for it to come, the way you fall asleep and dreams arrive from a distant land, surely but stealthily.”
Sanhita Baruah

“The reluctant will heed wisdom only when the confidence exhibited by the righteous awakens the seed of introspection,and the awareness of acountability, into the psyche of the uncertain.”
Justin K. McFarlane Beau

Brandy Heineman
“The past never quite disappeared, did it? Folks usually thought time moved forward, starting on the left and riding a right-pointing arrow into the future. Ruby didn't believe that. The future twisted uncertain, a shapeless dream, but the past - the past was set. It cast evidence behind it, photos and letters and bones, piling up in hidden places, waiting for the chance to spill out. An avalanche. A burial. The past consumed the future, always.”
Brandy Heineman

Pushpa Rana
“Walking on a path of uncertainties,
Shuffling on the probabilities of uncertainties,
Waging on the possibilities of uncertainties,
Waiting for the occurrences of uncertainties,
Solving the mysteries of wandering uncertainties,
We move, lead and live.”
Pushpa Rana, Just the Way I Feel

“No matter what there always seems to be something clouding my existence, nothing is ever clear.”
Emilyann Girdner, The Labyrinth Wall

Walter Moers
“Nothing is what one thinks it is. Cloth is stone and circus is an art. There are no certainties.”
Walter Moers

“Bunnu was no amateur when it came to escape. And even in his drowsiest moments, he understood implicitly that to forget his circumstances, even for a short while, meant first to forget himself. Who he was and why he was—to strip it all bare and start from scratch, as it were. In his nearly 250 years of life and, now, as an old emaciated man completely estranged from his family and closest friends—albeit more by circumstance than by choice—he understood the importance of this process and revered it, for there were far greater things to be done and achieved in the dark, uncertain areas of existence than in those circumscribed—and thereby strained—by comprehensibility.”
Ashim Shanker, Only the Deplorable

Assegid Habtewold
“When leaders lack self-awareness, they doubt themselves; uncertain about their abilities; unclear about the direction to take on each turn, and more...”

“What had happened is unfortunate, what is going to happen is Uncertain”

Ana Claudia Antunes
“So the earth is shaking
Here the word's faking
As there's no time for lies.
Kiss and dance all nights!
In no need of balance
Nothing makes sense
Get it loose with no excuse.
Shake and dance!”
Ana Claudia Antunes, ACross Tic

Marcus du Sautoy
“To understand this new frontier, I will have to try to master one of the most difficult and counterintuitive theories ever recorded in the annals of science: quantum physics. Listen to those who have spent their lives immersed in this world and you will have a sense of the challenge we face. After making his groundbreaking discoveries in quantum physics, Werner Heisenberg recalled, "I repeated to myself again and again the question: Can nature possibly be so absurd as it seemed to us in these atomic experiments?" Einstein declared after one discovery, "If it is correct it signifies the end of science." Schrödinger was so shocked by the implications of what he'd cooked up that he admitted, "I do not like it and I am sorry I had anything to do with it." Nevertheless, quantum physics is now one of the most powerful and well-tested pieces of science on the books. Nothing has come close to pushing it off its pedestal as one of the great scientific achievements of the last century. So there is nothing to do but to dive headfirst into this uncertain world. Feynman has some good advice for me as I embark on my quest: "I am going to tell you what nature behaves like. If you will simply admit that maybe she does behave like this, you will find her a delightful, entrancing thing. Do not keep saying to yourself, if you can possibly avoid it, 'But how can it be like that?' because you will get 'down the drain,' into a blind alley from which nobody has yet escaped. Nobody knows how it can be like that.”

Tanya Marlow
“To wait means you are constantly straddling two realities - the hoped-for outcome either happening, or not. Yes, or no. Yes, or no. You feel the pull of both possibilities as you wait.”
Tanya Marlow, Those Who Wait: Finding God in Disappointment, Doubt and Delay

James Baldwin
“I loved her as much as ever and I still did not know how much that was.”
James Baldwin, Giovanni's Room
