“She sat in the dark with her eyes closed bonding to the surface by inhaling deeply and exhaling gradually. Stillness and silence combined filled the space as she connected to her soul and experienced an instant of bliss. Amid the darkness; her smile reflected delight like she had just joined infinity. Suddenly, the sound of a spark broke the silence as she lit a candle and the small flame grew firmer and larger, while not long before the space was as dark as matter in the sky at night beyond the stars, and expressing gratitude in her heart; she absorbed the flame flickering glow brightening the room powerfully…” ~A passage from my Novel, Floranova B.

Collated Quotes and Insights from Rami Lahouel

“Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.” ~Anon

“I let my head fall back, and I gazed into the Eternal Blue Sky. It was morning. Some of the sky was yellow, some the softest blue. One small cloud scuttled along. Strange how everything below can be such death and chaos and pain while above the sky is peace, sweet blue gentleness. I heard a shaman say once, the Ancestors want our souls to be like the blue sky.”

“It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.” ~Anon



"The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.”



""A friend can be a caress in moment of distress, a tender shoulder to comfort us, and a warm heart to warm us in a tough winter

He can be a protection against us, and meet present whenever we need.
During our absence he will take our defense against any misplaced Word, as if they assaulted him in person.

We have confidence in him, that we confess to him our most buried secrets in the heart.

At times, he comes before the family, and even a crazy love can't push him or throw him out of our lives.

On the other hand, if by misfortune the confidence is lost one way or another, the situation becomes critical and the voltage will go up to replace the beautiful moments of friendship.

We can forgive wrongs of Love, while friendship is hard to grant forgiveness or to trust it again.

It is necessary only to rely on time provided that with his magic, it will dispel all evil heard."
~Rami Lahouel


"A woman who is quiet and withdraws without sign of life, it is that she is suffering in silence. If she's not sensitive to what is happening around her, she's touched in its depths.

If her choice is to withdraw, that she is disappointed and feels really injured.
This woman suffers without daring to say anything and will say nothing seen that this time it is affected in the soul.

She will prefer death to confess what she really weighs, until losing everything, in order to keep her dignity.

A real woman having a soul that bleeds no longer returns on her steps; she will disappear with her sentence to an uncertain fate." ~Rami Lahouel


For a woman of exceptional beauty as we have never seen; With its pure and tender heart, she drew everyone. I'm so proud of her. She is the white rose of my country.

When she smiles, she is bewitching that the Sun and the Moon get mad and envy her.

When she laughs, her man becomes even more crazy about her that he doesn't take his eyes off her.

I offer her these roses of all colours and I know that they are insignificant in their beauty, but my rose is modest and will accept them." ~Rami Lahouel

"Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end." ~Anon

"A great future doesn't require a great past." ~William Chapman
