story from the wallflower on the inside

    Artist Anila Quayyum Agha : Intricate carvings were made into a gigantic wood cube that measures six and a half feet on all sides. Titled ‘Intersections,’ this piece is one that really embodies the pattern and beauty found in Islamic spaces. To some it’s religious, to others this cube is a great work of art and a wonderful play on light and shadow.‘Intersections’ not only displays in a room as a massive sculpture, but when illuminated, the shadows cast are a whopping 35′ by 32′.

  • "Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but what’s important to me is my opinion of myself."

  • "We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better."

    I used to be really embarrassed when my parents would mess up their English but as I got older I realized my parents know Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, AND English.

    They’re way smarter than I am. So I started to chill.

    Somebody start talking about how immigrants are dumb because they can’t speak English properly. I’d fucking like to see you try and even remember four different languages, you elitist and racist fuckbaby.

    *after being called cassius clay at the weigh ins*

    "My name is Muhammad Ali and you will announce it right there in the center of that ring after the fight, if you don’t do it now.I will punish you!"

    Ali bloodied Terrell and almost knocked him out in the eighth round, Ali taunted Terrell throughout the match hitting him with sharp jabs and shouting between punches,What’s my name?” ”what’s my name?” “Say It!” Terrell couldn’t defend himself anymore -all he could do was put his gloves up to his face,Both eyes were cut,His left eye was completely closed by the end of the eighth round. The right eye was closing.But The fight still lasted 15 rounds.You know why it lasted 15 rounds? That’s how long  Ali wanted it to last.He wanted to punish terrell.He wanted to tell the world What his name was.

    In the 12th round terrell finally said Muhammad Ali.

    Yup. King fo shizzle.

  • "There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you."
