Quotes About Altered Reality

"songs, to me, were more important than just light entertainment. They were my preceptor and guide into some altered consciousness of reality. Some different republic, some liberated republic... whatever the case, it wasnt that I was anti-popular culture or anything and I had no ambition to stir things up. I just thought of mainstream culture as lame as hell and a big trick. It was like the unbroken sea of frost that lay outside the window and you had to have awkward footgear to walk with." - Author: Bob Dylan

Quotes About Forlorn Love

"From my window I watched the full moon—a moon that reminded me of Brett—become shadowed, little by little until there was only a deep blackness in the woods at night.

Quotes About Traditional

Quotes About Gauri

"Of the three women in Subhashs life—his mother, Gauri, Bela—there remained only one. His mothers mind was now a wilderness. There was no shape to it any longer, no clearing. It had been overtaken, overgrown. Shed been converted permanently by Udayans death. That wilderness was her only freedom. She was locked inside her home, taken out once each day. Deepa would prevent her from endangering herself, from embarrassing herself, from making further scenes. But Gauris mind had saved her. It had enabled her to stand upright. It had cleared a path for her. It had prepared her to walk away." - Author: Jhumpa Lahiri
