“يصف السفينة الفرنسية التي سافر بها لبعثته إلى فرنسا: "وكان اسمها (أصبهان) وكانت على بؤسها وفقرها مرحة تحب الرقص في البحر، وتحسن اللعب على أمواجه ولا تحفل بما يلقى ركابها من عقاب حبها للرقص واللعب".”
Taha Hussein, الأيام

“Najljepše od svega je to što je hodža smatrao da ima lijep glas! Dječak je, međutim, nalazio da Allah nije stvori ružniji glas, a kad god bi kazivao božije riječi: "Najodvratniji glas je revanje magarca", odmah bi se sjetio hodže.”
Taha Hussein, الأيام

“I detest farewells and feel that parting, as some foreign poets say, is "dying a little." I do not like to meet death, however easy it may be, nor do I like to be aware of it, to await it, or to fear it. I prefer for it to take me by complete surprise, that it should snatch me away suddenly, that I should exit life as inadvertently as I entered it.”
Taha Hussein
