Memorable words from the poet Ahmad Faraz

“Khud ko yun mahasuur kar baitha hun apni zaat me
Manzilein chaaron taraf hai, raasta koi nahi”

Roughly translated… (Feel free to improve the translation)

“I have myself surrounded my soul in such a way that
There are buildings all around… not a single street to go anywhere”
