Of quotes.

"...That is why it is so important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose. People need to understand that no one is playing with marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Don't expect to get anything back, don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don't expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle. Not out of pride, inability or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life. Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were and become who you are..."
-Paulo Coelho

Sometimes you wish you remained in the shadow. It’s like someone out there opened herself/himself completely to you and you don’t like what you see. And then things become different. You just withdraw yourself, become distant. Those are the times when you wonder WHY you even got to know that person so deep. If only you knew that you would be in for a big big shock..

I so feel what you said....
We often talk about knowing the person completely but at times, when it happens we wish we never had... :)

Raj said...

when someone opens up to you, you relish him or her. he has laid faith in you and be he anybody anything, good bad its not for you to decide, he opened up to you only because he thought you dont judge him or her and hence he laid his truth to you. and then you hide in the shadows. peculiar it sounds now doesn't it?

and the only reason you know the person is beacuse he knows you just as well :)
