Significance Of Hope

Hope-593x348

“Hey mom , have you seen the book I was reading earlier ? ” I asked frantically searching my room.

” The Sherlock Holmes one ? No , sorry.” She shouted from the other room.

” I think I left it in the town park, I am going to go check there. ”

So I rushed to the bench in the park where I was sitting earlier in hope of finding it and instead found a girl in a little ragged  old  clothes trying to read my book.

” Hey ! That is my book . ” I said in an angry tone.

” What this ? Sorry I didn’t know , I just found it lying here.” She apologised.

” Its okay ” I said realising she was just a kid.I sat down beside her.

” I saw you weren’t able to read it properly.” I asked after calming down.

” Yeah well ,  I can’t really read.” She said looking at her feet.

” Don’t you go to school ? You look very young . How old are you ? ” I enquired.

” I am 11 and I don’t go to school . My family can’t afford it.” She said sadly. ” That is why I am self-learning .I try to read and write whenever I can. I am not very good right now but soon I will be.Then maybe I can pass the scholarship exam at Global School and study there. Then I’ll be able to earn money when I grow up and my mother won’t have to work so much.” She said with gleaming eyes.

” You are very smart. That is a good plan but you will have to work really hard. ” I said matter-of-factly.

” I know . My mum says that with a little hope anything is possible. ” She replied with a smile.

” Your mum is a smart woman like you. You know I can help you in passing that exam . It’s after 4 months.Come here everyday at 5 o clock and I’ll teach you.Now I have to go. Remember tomorrow at 5. Bye ! ” I said as I was about to leave.

” Wait you forgot your book.” She shouted stopping me.

” You keep it as an early passing gift . ” I said with a big smile. ” Wait, Whats your name ? I am kim. ” I asked remembering I didn’t know her name.

” My name  is also Kim. What a coincidence !” She replied excitedly.

” Maybe not a coincidence at all . ” I said thinking how god works in mysterious ways.

Later  I returned home .

” Did you find your book ? ” My mom asked me.

” Yes and something much more valuable. ” I replied.

That day I found what a little hope can do. That day I found the significance of hope !

True Love – A Myth ?

love

What exactly is love?

I think love is such a beautiful thing that it has to be a myth, because something as pure and serene as love can’t survive in today’s ‘survival of the fittest’ world. We all just delude ourselves into thinking we know what love is.In reality, we are selfish and  have a self-serving motive in everything we do , even when we are not able to see it. Mostly its to make our life easier,but life isn’t supposed to be easy or fair.

The true love of soul mate kind of love only exists in movies and books, not in real life.On earth , we have more of a convenient love.Easy going and pragmatic , now that kind of love lasts in real life.We all wonder ,are soul mates really real ? The optimists like to believe they are but even they agree the probability of meeting your soul mate is like a million to one.So people waiting for ‘the one’ better get ready to die alone because the math is definitely not in their corner.

Philosophers say opposites attract but even that is proved through science, so how can people who find logic even in love actually find love.Because love is  supposed to be logic less and clueless.We read a few book and watch some romantic comedies we think we know all there is to know about love.But love is not to be understood , its to be felt.

Love is different for everybody.It doesn’t have to be the soul mate kind , it can also be with someone or something you connect with,that you think understands you in a whole different way.Because in the end, I think , love is all about understanding one another.Its said that when we eat chocolate, the same enzyme is released in our brain and body when we are supposedly in love.So just like we prefer some chocolates over others, some love are strong and some weak.Our favourites in chocolate keep changing exactly how we outgrow some loves because they weren’t meant to be until we taste that ultimate chocolate  which we know will always remain our favourite even though sometimes it may taste bitter.

So to answer the question is love a myth ? well , we have all our life to find out.

Love is the symphony no. fifth

Love is the hope we live with

Love we wish isn’t a myth

Book Quotes That Make Me Wonder

think-you-dont-like-romance-novels-ftr

There many quotes that just leave you wondering for hours.Some touch your heart in the most unexpected way ,some makes you feel were especially made for you and with some you form an instant connection.These wise lines often make my day and leave me smiling.These little lines make reading books worthwhile and make a permanent place for an unknown character in your heart.Following are some quotes I cherish.

”Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”  This amazing quote is in an amazing book – The Fault In Our Stars . After reading this book everybody will want to read  An Imperial Affliction but sadly it’s not a real book.Anyways,this book has such profound quotes but this make me wonders the most.As explained by John Green the author like in maths there are infinite numbers between 0 and 1 like 0.1 , 0.01, 0.001 and so on but there are more infinite numbers between 0 and 2,similarly augustus gave hazel an infinity in only some numbered days which she will cherish all her life the most.”I fell in love with you the way you fall asleep, first slowly and then all at once.”An incredible quote again from the same book.

”We accept the love we think we think we deserve.” this is from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.Its so true.Many times we accidentally find something beautiful but end up ruining it because we feel we are unworthy of it and pick those people who hurt us.”I feel infinite.” this is one of my favourite quotes.This phrase exactly describes that moment when you feel boundless, limitless and immeasurably great.When you know nothing can hold you back.That one moment when we are infinite.

“When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not reasonable to grieve when it must come to an end.” it’s from twilight.Its so true.It isn’t reasonable to grieve because everything has to end one day , but nobody wants to wake up from such a perfect dream .”Death is peaceful,easy,Life is harder.”Life is difficult and death easy that’s why our reward for living is death.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” The Alchemist taught me a lot of things including the fact that dream , and dream big because the possibility of fulfilling that dream is what makes life interesting.When you follow your dream the whole universe helps you, you just need to keep your eyes open in order to accept that help and be patient,you will get there.

”Do not pity the dead, pity the living and above all else those who live without love.” Dumbledore’s one of the wisest man I have ever had the pleasure of reading.”After all this time ? Always.” Snape replies when Dumbledore asks him about his love for Lily.Always,because love can never vanish but only grow.”It’s our choices that decide who we truly are , far more than our abilities.”Harry Potter showed us that we can always choose to be good, to use our abilities for good.It doesn’t matter where we come from but where we go from there.

All these quotes make me wonder

All these quotes make me remember

All these quotes teach me life is a beautiful godsend

All these quotes I’ll cherish till the end
