Rupi Kaur

  • loneliness is a sign you are in desperate need of yourself.

  • how you love yourself is / how you teach others / to love you.

  • what is stronger / than the human heart / which shatters over and over / and still lives.

  • i didn't leave because / i stopped loving you, / i left because the longer / i stayed the less i loved myself.

  • every time you / tell your daughter / you yell at her / out of love / you teach her to confuse / anger with kindness / which seems like a good idea / till she grows up to / trust men who hurt her / cause they look so much / like you.

    • Rupi Kaur,
    • "To Fathers With Daughters," Milk and Honey ()
  • people go / but how / they left / always stays.

  • fall / in love / with your solitude.

  • if you are not enough for yourself / you will never be enough / for someone else.

  • you must / want to spend / the rest of your life / with yourself / first.

  • what is the greatest lesson a woman should learn / that since day one / she's already had everything she needs within herself / it's the world that convinced her she did not.

  • if you have never / stood with the oppressed / there is still time.

    • Rupi Kaur,
    • "Lift Them," The Sun and Her Flowers ()
