    “there is a God, there always has been. I see him here, in the eyes of the people in this [hospital] corridor of desperation. This is the real house of God, this is where those who have lost God will find Him... there is a God, there has to be, and now I will pray, I will pray that He will forgive that I have neglected Him all of these years, forgive that I have betrayed, lied, and sinned with impunity only to turn to Him now in my hour of need. I pray that He is as merciful, benevolent, and gracious as His book says He is.”

    Khaled Hosseini
    “It was only a smile, nothing more. It didn't make everything all right. It didn't make ANYTHING all right. Only a smile. A tiny thing. A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird's flight. But I'll take it. With open arms. Because when spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time, and maybe I just witnessed the first flake melting. - Amir”
    Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

    يوسف زيدان
    “ولعل البدايات كما كان أستاذي القديم سوريانوس يقول ، ما هي إلا محض أوهام نعتقدها . فالبداية والنهاية إنما تكونان فقط في الخط المستقيم . ولا خطوط مستقيمة إلا في أوهامنا ، أو في الوريقات التي نسطر فيها ما نتوهمه . أما في الحياة وفي الكون كله ، فكل شئٍ دائري يعود إلى ما منه بدأ ، ويتداخل مع ما به اتصل.”
    يوسف زيدان, عزازيل

    يوسف زيدان, عزازيل

    “النوم هبة إلهية لولاها لأجتاح العالم الجنون كل ما في الكون ينام ويصحو وينام إلا آثامنا وذكرياتنا التي لم تنم قط ، و لن تهدأ أبداً”

    Khaled Hosseini
    “Miriam wished for so much in those final moments. Yet as she closed her eyes, it was not regret any longer but a sensation of abundant peace that washed over her. She thought of her entry into this world, the harami child of a lowly villager, an unintended thing, a pitiable, regrettable accident. A weed. And yet she was leaving the world as a woman who had loved and been loved back. She was leaving it as a friend, a companion, a guardian. A mother. A person of consequence at last. No. It was not so bad, Miriam thought, that she should die this way. Not so bad. This was a legitimate end to a life of illegitimate belongings.”
    Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns

    Khaled Hosseini
    “Laila watches Mariam glue strands of yarn onto her doll's head. In a few years, this little girl will be a woman who will make small demands on life, who will never burden others, who will never let on that she too had sorrows, disappointments, dreams that have been ridiculed. A woman who will be like a rock in a riverbed, enduring without complaint, her grace not sullied but shaped by the turbulence that washes over her. Already Laila sees something behind this young girl's eyes, something deep in her core, that neither Rasheed nor the Taliban will be able to break. something as hard and unyielding as a block of limestone. Something that, in the end, will be her undoing and Laila's salvation.
    The little girl looks up. Puts the doll down. Smiles.”
    Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns

    “Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.”
    Anonymous, Holy Bible: New International Version

If you need the medication again, go ahead and take it—I will love you through that, as well. If you don’t need the medication, I will love you, too. There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love. I will protect you until you die, and after your death I will still protect you. I am stronger than Depression and I am braver than Loneliness and nothing will ever exhaust me.”
    Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

    Elizabeth Gilbert
    “Still, despite all this, traveling is the great true love of my life. I have always felt, ever since I was sixteen years old and first went to Russia with my saved-up babysitting money, that to travel is worth any cost or sacrifice. I am loyal and constant in my love for travel, as I have not always been loyal and constant in my other loves. I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless, newborn baby--I just don't care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it's mine. Because it looks exactly like me. It can barf all over me if it wants to--I just don't care.”
    Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

    Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

    “Go back to bed', said the omniscient interior voice, because you don't need to know the final answer right now, at three o'clock in the morning on the Thursday in November. 'Go back to bed', because I love you. 'Go back to bed', beacause the only thing you need to do for now is get some rest and take good care of yourself until you do know the answer.”
    Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
