ایشیا مغرب کے طور طریقوں کے تحت تہذیب یافتہ نہیں ہوگا 

ایشیا بہت بڑا ہے اور بہت قدیم ہے

جیسے آپ کبھی بھی کسی ایسی عورت کی اصلاح نہیں کر سکتے جس کے بہت سے چاہنے والے ہوں


کوئی بھی چیز کسی کے باہر نہیں، کوئی بھی چیز کسی کے اندر نہیں، کیوں کہ جو کچھ بھی کسی کے باہر ہے وہی اس کے اندر ہے

اسے ایسا محسوس ہوا جیسے وہ برف اور آگ سے بھر چکا ہے

سیاروں نے احمقانہ انداز سے اس کی طرف دیکھا

وہ چھوٹا سا بت اب میرے اندر ہے اور اب میں اسے مزید برداشت نہیں کر سکتا


اس ماحول میں گرمیوں کی رات کے گزرنے کی خوشبو محس
A collection of short stories by the winners of the prestigious Nobel Prize for Literature, this book will definitely be one of my best buys so far. At the end of most of the stories the same thoughts surfaced in my mind - ‘no wonder this author won the Nobel Prize’. From William Faulkner, W. B. Yeats, G. B. Shaw, known to one and all, to Bjornsterne Bjornsen, Maurice Maeterlinck this collection has stories penned by the greatest authors of all times and has opened a new dimension to my reading ...more
An Anthology of Short stories.the only criterion is that the author should be a Nobel Prize winner. the Editor(s) had chosen some and left out some(prize winners).The collection as a whole did work on me.but some individual stories did not. Because this book has some different stories from different period and the significance of some stories are lost on me and it was a bit disappointing to not know what is transpiring even though i did read between the lines and made up the empty spots.

Found this book used and had to buy it because the opening essay is Rudyard Kipling searching for and finding Mark Twain at his brother in law's house and talking to him about all kinds of things (copyright, Tom Sawyer, autobiography, interruptions). Kipling says: "Blessed is the man who finds no dissolution when he is brought face to face with a revered writer." And he was blessed.
This book also has the very brief address William Faulkner gave when he won the Nobel, called "Man Will Prevail,"

After a long run of science fiction novels to celebrate what I thought was the completion of graduate school, I got temporarily sick of the genre and began to read serious material again beginning with this collection of stories by winners of the Nobel Prize in Literature.

I believe this volume was left behind, along with other books, when Janny Willis departed from New York. She had long been an exemplar of a well-read person, so getting through her old books was an intended project. What could
