sorrow

A Quote by Oriah Mountain Dreamer on fear and sorrow

"I want to know if you've touched the center of your own sorrow, if you've been opened by life's betrayals, or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain."

A Quote by Ankit Shukla on dawn, dusk, end, begining, hope, sorrow, destiny, and morning

Its five in the morning, I can see the first rays of sun trying to penetrate through this grey sky, trying to change its color to dark blue, and declare the dawn, but its strange, dawn and dusk both have the same color, both have same murky feel about them, but how different is their nature, one exemplifies the end, while the other symbolizes a new begining.. but is that end the end of hopes or end of sorrows.. or is that begining the begining of a new life or new difficulties which lie ahead... we cant ever figure it out... its all written and thats what destiny is....
Every begining can be a new end and every end can be a new begining...
