Hi everyone, I hope you are all having an amazing weekend and are staying safe. Today I am here with my favourite quotes from We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal.
“You’ll have me. No matter how thick the night, I will always be there to light your way.”
“Darkness doesn’t need to be destroyed. We need the dark as much as we need light. It makes us bold, as much as it makes us afraid.” She smiled. “Darkness needs only to be tamed.”
“Emotions don’t define us. It’s what you do with them that’s important.”
“There were moments before moments, in which the world was framed in startling clarity, a defined before hurtling toward a horrible after. Moments in which the powerful were powerless, in which promises became failings.
This was such a moment.”
“Habibi. Hayati. Roohi.
My love, my life, my soul, the words meant, but their meanings went deeper than that.
Habibi was for friends and love that was real enough.
Hayati was when love became an all-encompassing thing. Deeper and deeper, until one became the others life.
Roohi was when a soul twined with its match and loved with the force of a thousand suns. When it slipped beneath the heart and tangled in the very fibres of an existence.”
“If I hurt her, I will bring every weapon at my disposal and lay them at your feet for you to do to me what you will. If I hurt her, I will no sooner carve out my own heart then dare draw breath again.”
“My girl will wield weapons, and she will wield them well, for it takes a special kind of courage to hold power and know when not to use it.”
“Hope, he had learned, arrived swiftly, seeking to bloom in the darkest of places and in the most harrowing of times.”
“Were all monsters lonely, he wondered, pretending to be aloof and unafraid? Was it that falsity that nurtured them, cultivating them with careful precision, unique and unmatched?”
