Quotations About / On: LONELY

  • 21.
    What is this fame, it is the devil's game
    You run to succeed and then you let the vultures feed
    Along that lonely road you loose yourself
    Yet like mountains you build up your wealth
    Your talent is a gift to all but for you it's a curse and your downfall
    All you want to do is live, laugh and love
    But you sold your soul and are refused refuge from above
    Along that lonely path you walk
    With bitter-sweet memories and promises that were all talk
    When it finally all ends
    When you're left with no friends
    When your pain comes back
    Scratching like nails on your back
    You realize you were wrong from the beginning
    You will always lose in this game
    There is no winning.
    (- Jiah Khan)

    The poem is about comprehension of beauty. While looking for an apt image, I came across this and learned about Wabi-sabi. I am a Wabi-sabist partially. Actually I had seen an image of an empty worn out wooden chair on Gabriel Garcia Marquez's celebrated novel One hundred years of solitude, although the theme was isolation and endless waiting there, I like that. I am fascinated by still lonely images in exotic interior spaces.
    (Charu Gandhi. In response to the poem 'Just Another')

    Really to succeed, we must give; of our souls to the soulless, of our love to the lonely, of our intelligence to the dull. Business is quite as much a process of giving as it is of getting.
    (Alice Foote MacDougall (1867-1945), U.S. businesswoman. The Autobiography of a Business Woman, ch. 6 (1928).)
