Quotes by Rupi Kaur

"i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that"

"Loneliness is a sign you are in desperate need of yourself."

"I didn't leave because
I stopped loving you,
I left because the longer
I stayed the less I loved myself."

"i am a museum full of art
but you had your eyes shut"

"do not look for healing
at the feet of those
who broke you"
