Five Quotes from the Past That Feel True Now

July 22, 2022

I came across these quotes in Google when I was looking for quotes during a moment of rest, hours after I’d posted the photo and my words in the first post. There is so much that resonates with me in these in my own life and past.

The first quotes are by May Ziadeh 💕

When the world tore my heart with its evil and littleness, my bird sang and made me forget the ugliness of folly and think of the beauty of everything splendid.


“You do not harm because you do not speak.”—May Ziadeh

I found this true in my personal life as I’d found healing and life in 2020 and I’d write of it on the blog—being afraid for long to say or do wrong to anyone, ever-guilty and wanting to hide myself, and not speaking much at all had made some people with me feel better about themselves sometimes and maybe be more glad with me, but that wasn’t what’s right or valuable, and I also feel the rest of this that’s not shown here in her quote…And I think of the damage of complete silence (when a person can speak) to defend someone, and in what your words are rooted in, despite what others can hear from their own perspective.

*There is a new meaning that came up: Silence when a person does not deserve your answer then: when the conversation drains your energy because the other person is not looking at you with considerate eyes repetitiously, but retelling their own part untrue to reality when you are not caring about blame but resolution: They are talking again and again to feel relief of their conscience and this is tiring you out. Silence, because to reserve your energy: Let a person know when you are ending a conversation, the conversation is now ended, and now they step away.

—So you don’t feel harm as this kind of conversation is not happening anymore.

And two by Kahlil Gibran, from whom I’ve come to move through my mysterious feelings of pain from, and can read his writings 💕


I looked and saw the moon is in Capricorn, after I’d found these quotes (Kahlil’s Sun sign) which is nice timing.
