Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see:
She has deceived her father, and may thee.

___________

Reputation, reputation, reputation! Oh, I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial.

_____________

Excellent wretch! Perdition catch my soul,
But I do love thee! and when I love thee not,
Chaos is come again.

_____________

Take note, take note, O world,
To be direct and honest is not safe.



Othello by Shakespeare

“When I look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies in me; when I read the epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinate desire goes out; when I meet with the grief of parents upon a tombstone, my heart melts with compassion; when I see the tombs of the parents themselves, I consider the vanity of grieving for those whom we must quickly follow; when I see kings lying by those who deposed them, when I consider rival wits placed side by side, or the men that divided the world with their contests and disputes, I reflect with sorrow and astonishment on the little competitions, factions, and debates of mankind. When I read the several dates of the tombs, of some that died yesterday, and some six hundred years ago, I consider that great Day when we shall all of us be contemporaries, and make our appearance together”

Jude the obscure by Thomas Hardy

Note: This is originally written by Joseph Addison but Thomas Hardy has used this extract in his novel Jude The Obscure.

"They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force--nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others."

"And this stillness of life did not in the least resemble a peace. It was the stillness of an implacable force brooding over an inscrutable intention. It looked at you with a vengeful aspect."

"We live as we dream--alone"



Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

God made the angels to show him splendour- as he made animals for innocence and plants for their simplicity . But Man he made to serve him wittily , in the tangel of his mind. A Man for All Season by Robert Bolt

Nothing will come of nothing: speak again.

_____________

Mend your speech a little,
Lest it may mar your fortunes.

_____________

I want that glib and oily art
To speak and purpose not; since what I well intend,
I'll do't before I speak.

______________

Time shall unfold what plaited cunning hides

______________

Who is it that can tell me who I am?

______________

He's mad that trusts in the tameness of a wolf, a horse's health, a boy's love, or a whore's oath.

_______________

When we are born we cry that we are come
To this great stage of fools.


King Lear by Shakespeare

Who drinks from his sickening cup
Recklessness and vanity,
Until from his high crest headlong
He plummets to the dust of hope.”

You didn't love her

You just didn't want to be alone.Or may be,may be she was just good for your ego.Or,or may be she made you feel better about your miserable life,but you didn't love her.Because you don't destroy people you love.

-Grey's Anatomy-

Talent is God-given; be humble.
Fame is man-given; be thankful.
Conceit is self-given; be careful.
- John Wooden

We come nearest to the great
when we are great in humility.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Real excellence and humility are
not incompatible one with the other,
on the contrary they are twin sisters.
- Jean Baptiste Lacordaire
