37 Rupi Kaur Quotes To Fall In Love With Life

Rupi Kaur Quotes famously regarded as the Queen of the ‘Instapoets’ today, is an Indian-born Canadian poet, writer, illustrator, and performer, who immigrated to Canada as a child and since then is settled in Toronto. It wasn’t always like this for Kaur. She started her career by posting her work to Tumblr in 2012 and then gradually switched to Instagram, but her social media strategy wasn’t yet making her nearly enough money to survive.

The 25-year-old Canadian poet outsold Homer two years ago: Her first collection, ‘milk & honey’ (2014), has been translated into 40 languages and has sold 3.5 million copies, becoming a hit the New York Times best-seller list in 2016 and nicking the position of best-selling poetry book from The Odyssey.
