Some of the famous quotes of his articles are:

क्षेत्रीको छोरो यो पाउ छुन्छ, घिनले छुँदैनमानिस ठूलो दिलले हुन्छ जातले हुँदैन ।

जरुर साथी म पागल !यस्तै छ मेरो हाल ।म शब्दलाई देख्दछु !दृश्यलाई सुन्दछु !बासनालाई संबाद लिन्छु ।आकाशभन्दा पातालका कुरालाई छुन्छु ।ती कुरा,जसको अस्तित्व लोक मान्दैंनजसको आकार संसार जान्दैन ! 

कालो बादलबाट खसेकोअन्धकारमा भित्र बसेको,ईश्वर हो कि भिखरी?घर, घर, आँगन चारीबोल्दछ, आर्तध्वनिमा बोल्दछकरुणामृत दिल भारी ।
