So, I just finished reading Soha Ali Khan’s, The Perils of Being Moderately Famous and I must say, I have become a fan of Soha’s writing. The literary world should encourage such writers and welcome them with open arms.
Whilst reading the book, I came across some beautiful quotes and for the benefit of readers, I have made a list of them.
Here are the BEST LINES FROM SOHA ALI KHAN’S FIRST BOOK
- I am content to bask in reflected glory whilst seeking out my unique destiny.
- Life will knock you down time and again, and you must find the strength inside to stand up. Never give up the fight – not until your dying breath.
- The heater could warm my fingers and toes, but I needed to make friends to melt the ice around my homesick heart.
- When you strip away all cultural affections, you can make genuine and lasting connection with people if you can accept, embrace and simply be who you are.
- When you see something, or someone, special – and it’s a rare and beautiful thing – don’t take it for granted. Grab it and hold on tight.
- Success will never be final and failure will never be fatal. What matters is that you persevere.
- It’s not the length of our hemlines that need to increase; it’s the breadth of your minds.
- People will say negative things about you personally as well as criticize your work but over time you realize that the worst responses are not the disparaging ones, it’s when they don’t respond at all – when you’re simply not relevant enough to be discussed.
- If we are unwilling to dig deeper within ourselves to get in touch with our dreams and fears, we are unlikely to give that chance to our friends.
- Travel is meant to take you out of the familiar and into the unknown, out of your comfort zone into murky waters, out of your cocoon into a new and exciting world – it is meant to be an education.
- Love is certainly the most precious and cherished thing but it is not all lingering looks and amorous embraces. It is not the ability to know what the other person needs without them actually having to tell you. It is not the absence of irritation, conflict or disappointment. It is hard work and there is always room for improvement.
- You know you are with the right person when they are able to tolerate inevitable differences between you, and when you in turn can do the same.
