Words are mightier than swords. A simple phrase consisting of powerful words is capable of evoking feelings; they can make you or break you, be it a close friend’s wise advice or a quote you read online.  Below are a few such quotes that are totally redundant

The One About Music

The one about music

Sometimes, people suggest you music that are not your cup of coffee; worst case scenario, they might make your ears bleed, in which case the quote is completely invalid.

The One About Loners

The one about loners

Because only delusional people make a lot of friends? How does this even make any sense?

The One About Romance

The one about romance

Romanticising things like flaws and scars are the worst thing you can do to yourself. If you think you have flaws, don’t expect another person to fix it for you or blame them if they can’t keep up. It’s a different thing that the right person will love you for who you are and be there for you but expecting others to love your flaws is plain stupidity. If you want your relationship to work out or let your loved one live in peace, work on your flaws first and try being a better person for them.

The One About Friendship

The one about friendship

And friends who didn’t say “I love you” before hanging up aren’t?  How dare you forget to say the three magical words?

The One About Mind Readers

The one about mind readers

In other words, only people with psychic powers are capable of caring for you when you are quiet. If your friend isn’t a mind reader, they aren’t your real friends.

The One About Privacy

The one about privacy

It’s not always healthy to share anything and everything in a relationship. Sometimes it’s wise to give each other some privacy. But of course, no relationship should be built upon lies.
