Sharing her thoughts on the launch of this book, Priyanka said, “”
“Your self-realizations happen when they are meant to be. It’s just that sometimes in this fast pacing life, in order to cope up with those mundane activities, we forget to cogitate to find out the purpose of our lives. We become oblivious to our blessings in those ups and downs of life. There’s nothing to feel guilty about any of it though because that’s why we are humans. We only need to reminisce that we have traveled lifetimes to be here… in this journey… in this moment. After a fall, a rise is the only consequence. The life we are living is our will, and the destiny that’s destined is our choice. It was in this transition that I happened to write these soulful quotations. I call them soulful because these renditions helped my restless soul settle in the body for which it was made.”
The book aims to resonate with all sorts of readers and is not confined to the taste of philosophical readers only.
The collection of quotes has been kept as it was written to depict the sincerity of the author’s frame of reference, encountering the all-encompassing thoughts, through life’s events, and learning lessons life brought her way. Quotes are deliberately kept on all topics so that the readers find them intriguing and interesting. Besides, the length of the quote also varies depending on their theme so that there’s no monotony. The flow is kept random so that each message is self-sufficient in itself and gets the reader to think!
