Timeless Wisdom in the Words of Mirza Ghalib

Mirza Ghalib, a prominent Urdu and Persian poet from the Indian subcontinent during the Mughal Empire, is known for his profound and philosophical poetry. Here are some of his notable words

"Dil hi to hai na sang-o-khisht, dard se bhar na aaye kyun?"

"It's just a heart, not a stone or brick; why shouldn't it be filled with pain?" 

"Hazaron khwahishen aisi ke har khwahish pe dam nikle, Bahut niklay mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikle."

"A thousand desires, each so intense that every desire takes my breath away, Many aspirations emerged, yet they seemed inadequate."

"Hazaaron rang badal kar bhi saaya na badla, Kya karein kya nahi bharosa hai uss daur-e-doulat pe."

"Thousands of colors changed, but the shadow remained the same, What to do, what not to do, one can only rely on the turning wheel of fortune."

"Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqdeer se pehle, Khuda bande se khud pooche, bata teri raza kya hai."

"Raise yourself to such heights that before every destiny, God himself asks the person, 'Tell me, what is your wish?'"

"Ghalib, tere shorish-e-farda ka na charcha na sanna, Humne aaj tak nahi dekha wo koocha-o-bazaar ka."

"Ghalib, let's not talk or praise the turmoil of tomorrow, Until today, I haven't seen that street or market."
