The 3 Day Challenge: Day 3 #Self Quote

 The quote from my yet to be finished novel comes at a transition point. There are times when it is better to let things and people go. Once you set them free and move out there is a realization that you were missing yourself among all the hustle and noise.

When you are alone, there is a certain silence and you can  hear yourself when the emotions of others do not crowd you.

The 3 Day Challenge: Day 2 #JohnMilton

"What though the field be lost?
All is not lost, The unconquerable will,
And study of revenge, immortal hate,
And courage never to submit or yield."
                                          -John Milton, Paradise Lost.

The 3 Day Challenge: Day 1 #RobertFrost

Robert Frost

These lines have inspired me and let me go when the odds were at the highest. They were on the desk of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. These lines first came into my notice when I was a student of literature. "Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening".

The lines define the temptation and desires that may distract you. Dark and deep are the temptations that engulf a person. Dark here defines mystery and aren't all mysterious things lovely? Shallow temptations can never shake a person of virtue but what if these dark and unseen temptations are deep ? Temptations look lovely at times but they lead us to the dark and unfathomably deep abyss. We tend to lose our aim in life. There comes a time in life when we are drawn to these temptations, its human nature and we may go a bit there or stand to serenade it.

But then there are promises and commitments that we have done to ourselves and others who mean to us.

The last line is one that takes my heart away and resonates. "Miles to go before I sleep". It is evident that the sleep of death will come but then there are a lot of things to be done before that. You may feel tired and tempted at times but retiring for long is not an option. we have to cover miles and stand true to our calling before the final call comes. The lines give a lot of hope and positive energy for sure.
