The Best Rupi Kaur Quotes About Love, Remembrance And Life

Love, Quotes

She says what you feel.

Rupi Kaur has taken the world by storm.

Her one and only poetry and prose anthology, Milk And Honey, a New York Times Bestseller, has flooded bookstores, the internet, and our hearts.

What makes Kaur’s poems so memorable isn’t just their short and sweet format or the beautiful line drawings paired with each poem; it’s how she seems to always know exactly how you feel.

Every poem hits home for someone. We have all had things in our life that seem to hold us down and leave us unable to love who we are and where we are.

Kaur understands that. She knows exactly what we need to hear in order to feel like this world is not completely against us.

Milk And Honey is divided into 4 sections: "the hurting", "the loving", "the breaking", and "the healing".

Rupi Kaur’s life has not been an easy battle, but she’s using her experiences to show us how she’s overcame abuse, dysfunctional love, and heartbreak to officially begin healing and loving who she is.
