One Word, Two Ways: Quote

(Ashish, Spring 2013 via here)

I want this sweatshirt.  I’d wear it all the time.  Sometimes I come off so serious – here, in pictures and in person.  It’s mostly not true.  Occasionally, it is.

While reading the book Shantaram on my iPad, I took notes of some of my favorite quotes in the book. I thought maybe you would like to see them.

Guilt is the hilt of the knife that we use on ourselves, and love is often the blade; but it is worry that keeps the knife sharp, and worry, that gets most of us in the end.
~Chapter Twenty-One

There is no meanness too spiteful or too cruel than when we hate someone for all the wrong reasons.
~Chapter Eighteen

Love goes on forever because love is born in the part of us that does not die.
~Chapter Twenty-Six

Love makes men big, hate makes them small.
~Chapter Twenty-Eight

Everything you ever sense, in touch or taste or sight or even thought, has an effect on you that’s greater than zero.
~Chapter Twenty-Eight

We know who we are and we define what we are by references to the people we love and our reasons for loving them.
~Chapter Thirty

No love, is no life.
~Chapter Thirty-Four

Love is the passionate search for truth other than your own; and once you feel it, honestly and completely, love is forever. Every act of love, every moment of the heart reaching out, is part of the universal good: it’s part of god, or what we call god and it can never die.
~Chapter Thirty-Four

The only kingdom that makes any man a king is the kingdom of his own soul.
~Chapter Forty-One

We carry oceans inside us, in our blood, in our sweat. And we are crying the oceans in our tears.
~Chapter Eighteen
