“صدقني،فمتى نكتم الألم،فهذا يعني أننا نعرف معناه.لاشئ يساوي الألم سوى كتمانه”
Elias Khoury, Gate of the Sun

“هل تعتقد أننا نستطيع أن نصنع وطننا من هذه الحكاية الغامضة؟ ولماذا علينا أن نصنعه؟ الإنسان يرث بلاده كما يرث لغته،لماذا نحن فقط من بين شعوب الأرض علينا أن نخترع وطننا كل يوم،وإلا ضاع كل شئ، ودخلنا في النوم الأبدي؟؟؟”
Elias Khoury, Gate of the Sun

“هل الانتظار لاشئ؟؟أنت تهزأ بي،الانتظار كل شئ.نقضي حياتنا كلها انتظاراً،وتقول لاشئ!!كأنك تريد إضاعة معنى حياتنا”
Elias Khoury, Gate of the Sun
