“I know life is not rainbows and butterflies, but I’d rather die delusional than being a mature cynic.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“I believed my love would be reciprocated because it was pure. But it wasn’t. Reaction to every action? It doesn’t work that way with a human heart. Human mind resembles the quantum world. Always uncertain. Beyond any explanation.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Some are mature enough that they don’t speak their minds. Some are so mature that they know they are not mature.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Life is not a list of checkboxes that we have to tick off sequentially one after another. Got a degree? Tick. Booked a house under my name? Tick. Got married? Tick. Had Children? Tick. All this sound too cliché, too depressing. These are acts which people do under the influence of peer pressure, mimicking each other, and not willingly as a genuine choice of their own.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“I feel, therefore, I am a fool.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“You believe in love, just as a child believes in Santa Claus or a fairy tale.”
“What is love then, if not a fairy tale meant for adults?”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“What do you think all of us are here for? Certainly not to seek happiness. We are not here to enjoy. We are here to feel. Experiencing emotions is what human minds are made for. Emotions of every kind. A full gamut. A life spent on experiencing sentiments that lie at only one side of the spectrum is no life at all. We shouldn’t avoid grief. Instead, we should welcome despair in our lives with open arms. For it makes us who we are. It makes us complete.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“The best kind of love is the one that results in the profoundest level of melancholy. Longing for someone whom you have never been with or desiring someone, who, for some reason, can’t ever be yours, are the kinds of pain that must be embraced and endured. It’s a privilege to feel sad because of love. For it means the love has served its purpose. As it evoked the emotions in us that we were never ready for.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“One should live one’s life in a way that the passage of time can’t be felt at all. The key is to keep yourself busy with unimportant things, and one day you’ll be no more. A mature man knows this fact very well and therefore keeps himself busy with things that shouldn’t, after all, matter to him.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“You don’t want a girlfriend. You want a therapist whom you can be intimate with.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“What do you think was the reason this universe sprung all of a sudden into existence from nothing? It was curiosity. What do you think was the reason why time was finally set into motion? It was curiosity. And why did the first single cell life appear on Earth? It was nothing but curiosity. It is curiosity, my dear friend, which is driving this whole universe.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Men and water shouldn’t stay at the same place for long.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Ninety percent of the people are not happy with their jobs. The remaining ten percent don’t deserve their jobs in the first place.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“If God is really out there, then there are all the more reasons for free will to exist. If everything is predestined, what’s the fun in that? Humans must surprise the Almighty at times.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“All great men have been rebels. All great men were free. It is the only formula for greatness. To be stuck in the state of adolescence.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Only those who are intelligent can change their minds. The rest are damaged permanently due to indoctrination. A lower IQ makes a person less malleable.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“A soulful woman loves a man not for who he is, but for what he may become.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“It’s a privilege to feel. And misery, my friend, is necessary. Otherwise, happiness would lose its charm.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Love is not just something that happens. Love is what one decides to offer to someone.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“God is an idea. It prevents us from insanity,” he opined. “Moreover, it is satisfying to believe that this universe has an order.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Yes, I curse God all the time. On some days for giving us such a short life, and on others for giving us such a long one.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“The problem with the world is that people are busy searching for keys but don’t know the locks that they would open.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Even a pawn makes a move, sometimes two steps in the beginning. How small or limited it may be, it can never be overlooked. Remember, it is a pawn and only the pawn which gets promoted once it reaches the other side of the chessboard. If a pawn, saddened by its abilities, stops making any move, it can never evolve into something greater. We have to make moves, my friend, to progress.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“People are hard to predict. The same music which moves one person to tears has little or no effect on the other.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Do you believe in God?” asked the girl once again.

“Yes, I do, I guess. Perhaps more so when I am in trouble. Especially when I am flying in an airplane.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“A man is not mature unless he gets a certificate of maturity from a woman.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“If a son has a peaceful relationship with his father, if neither of them ever shows contempt for the other, then either the father is a fool, or the son is.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“The only key to greatness is humiliation; self or public.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“The process of becoming is of greater consequence than being.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
“Life is a journey, my friend. And we never know whether we will reach our destination. So we shouldn’t care about that and enjoy the view while we are still travelling.”
Abhaidev, That Thing About You
