1) “One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.”
A quote by Simone De Beauvoir, that explicitly talks about the essentiality of different yet stereotypical gender roles that define how a woman is different from a man. A woman “becomes” a “second” sex is what she makes her point upon.
2) “I am free and that is why I am lost.”

A quote by well known writer, Franz Kafka who stressed upon Existential crisis in most of his works. He took absurdity of life to another level and freed himself from all the prevalent ideologies about living and thus created a sphere that lacked time and space; making him “lost”.

3) “The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.”

With an extremely logical approach towards the futility of life is what distinguishes Albert Camus from other Existentialists. He describes life as a circle and it is totally impossible to meet an end through one’s efforts since ultimately everybody is supposed to die.

4) “An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”


A beautiful thought by one of the leaders of India, Mahatma Gandhi. A person who always believed in Humanity and considered Non violence to be the only key which can open the doors of human-ness that people have forgotten. He totally despises the idea of a war since there are always better weapons of Peace and Love that never brings blindness or say darkness in any individual or the whole world.

5) “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”


A quote by Lewis Carroll, that takes all of us to an unguided tour of spontaneity that is not influenced by our past actions. He deconstructs the identity that time has made him attain and continues to be different with each passing moment. A truly positive outlook is what he talks about and tells us to seize the randomness of present.
