"The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes."
"What is the difference? I asked him. Between the love of your life, and your soulmate?
One is a choice, and one is not."
"A belief may be comforting. Only through your own experience, however, does it become liberating."
Shankar Jaikishan and Mohammed Rafi.
(Haha I’m so sorry. Get away Shankar, just Jaikishan of course. I’m so used to write their names together that they sometimes slip out as one. That’s awkward, but hey.)
