Roots…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     May be you are searching

                 among the branches

                for what only appears

                in the roots.

 

                                      ~ ` ~ Rumi

  If art is to nourish the roots of our

                        culture, society must set the artist free to

                                            follow his vision wherever it takes him.

                                                                       ~ ` ~  john. F. Kennedy

              Everything you see has its

      roots in the unseen

                 world.

                  The forms may change, yet the essence

                                           remains the same.

                                                                  ~ ` ~ Rumi

                You can have more than

                              one home.

               You can carry your roots with you & decide

                              where they grow.

                       ~ ` ~  Henning Mankell

 

 

_POP8784

 

            Each person leaves a legacy — a single,

                    small piece of herself, which makes richer

                          each individual life & the collective life of

                                                     humanity as a whole.

                                   ~ ` ~ Unknown

 

 

 

_POP8809

 

     To be rooted is perhaps

               the most important

                  and least recognised need

                  of a human soul.

                                                    ~ ` ~ Simone Weil

    Most people use quotes to tell something about their photos, but your photos speak of these quotes, and get us to think about the meaning of the quote. Another masterpiece, Mr. Sriram. Thank you from my heart. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Dear Anna…:-)…I am not an expert to suggest any book…but maybe you can try ” the essential RUMI ” by Coleman Barks
