Random Lines

This page is used as an archive to save the random lines written by me. They may not be complete thoughts/ideas in themselves. Few of them are taken out of any specific context. I remembered many of them without ever actually writing/saving them. But, I decided it is better to place them here.

Though I am still learning the craft of writing and still consider myself a novice writer, sometimes, a line or two comes to my mind out of blue when I am walking, eating, or simply watching TV. I forget few of them as I never used to save or write them.

Few of these lines are inspired from the books I read.

Please do drop your comments if you like any of these lines. You can use the comments section and will be great if you could mention the numbers too.

  1. The saddest ending for any love story is neither death nor separation. The saddest ending is when both of them love each other and never express it thinking the other doesn’t love when actually they love each other never expressing.
  2. Freedom is not being free from any commitment. Instead, freedom is being able to choose the commitment we want to.
  3. She said, “Google knows and understands more about me than you ever could,” and left. For the first time in his life he wished Google wasn’t there.
  4. We think about someone in every breath in and breath out and wonder whether that someone thinks about us. Whether that someone knows that we exist on the same planet and breathing the same air as he/she does.
  5. We never looked each other in the eyes until we were officially sleeping together in the bed for the first time. Both of us tired from the typical traditional Indian marriage ceremony.
  6. Relationships based on Maths are complex and wont work. Sometimes you may find yourself in situations where you have to divide by zero and calculate square root for negative numbers.
  7. In the last minutes on your deathbed you do not want to regret that you have spent more time with machines than with human-beings.
  8. The first time I touched you, you asked me to hold and drag to unlock and see insides of you. Oh my.. how beautiful you were. My little iPhone.
  9. He gave me everything I asked him for. Money and everything else money cannot buy.
  10. What is capable of making you extremely happy, has the ability to push you into the extremes of unhappiness.
  11. He never used his last-name. But when he used he commanded everyone’s attention. He realized the power of last-names as early as a school going kid.
  12. His father told him that students who studied there are very successful in life. I wonder, whether success and money were synonyms for him.
  13. Nothing matters in the end. Well, really nothing. All that matters is whether you found something/someone, which/whom you valued over your own life.
  14. He felt as abandoned as a stray cigarette you find on the Indian roads.
  15. As futile as searching for stars in the night sky with a torchlight.
  16. It is important to know the difference between choice and chance.
  17. Each cell in my body thinks about you every moment. It’s not just the mind. Every cell, from hair-tips to toe-tips. Every cell wants to be with you. Right now.
  18. Anything can change your life. An apple can change. Just like it did for Newton. Millions watched the fall of millions of apples before him. But no one dared to ask ‘why’. One man did it and changed the fate of this planet forever.
  19. It was difficult to guess which part of the day it was. The analog wall-clock had no indication. With the windows closed, for few moments he was confused whether it was day or night when he woke up from the deep sleep.
  20. Being positive is always good except when you are tested for HIV.
  21. Over thinking kills many a genius.
  22. If Darwin’s evolution theory is proved to be flawless, why the hell evolution stopped with humans. Are we supposed to realize God? Is it the ultimate end of evolution process?
  23. The only certainty in life is death. Everything else is uncertain. The problems we create stem out of our inability or unwillingness to accept these uncertainties. When you really realize that nothing really matters in the end, you will see life differently.
  24. He realized in the days of utter grief, that the best gift of God is not brain. But that part of brain which allows you to forget. Forget someone. Forget your past.
  25. When in doubt speak truth. It saves you from remembering a lot of shit you might have to say.
  26. You must know what you can think about later. Postpone thinking.
  27. You cannot simply be a fiction-writer. You have to be a human, animal, tree, sky, lawyer, teacher, doctor, architect, thief, lover, betrayer, criminal, police, kid, old-man, woman, man, and probably many other things. Literally you cannot be everything. But at least you got to have the mind to switch into anything.
  28. “Why do you read books?” he asked. “Because I can’t read people,” she replied.
  29. When life f__ks you hard, just remember that you will have a thrilling climax.

I will be adding to this list as I write any interesting lines that I can archive here.
