In most cases, you should not concern yourself with the opinions of the “average” man. This one is no exception
What use is prayer,
when your heart
Friend, tie yourself to God;
you can not meet God through wisdom alone.
Toss aside greed
throw away lust,
anger, and pride.
tie people down with self-pride:
They all get together
and worship a stone.
‘I have found God through devotion;
by becoming simple-hearted
I met God.’
Songs of Kabir in the Adi Granth,
translated by Nirmal Dass,

Screw stardust; be iron instead.
Be the element that creates stardust.
Be the element that causes the largest stars to explode.
Be the element that is strong enough to collapse an entire universe.
I do not desire mediocre love. I want to drown in someone.
All the hardest, coldest people you meet,
were once as soft as water.
And that’s the tragedy of living.
