النهاية والبداية وقصائد أخرى by فيسوافا شيمبورسكا
“اليقظة لا تتلاشى
.كما تتلاشى الأحلام
لا همهمة ولا جرس
،يُبددها
لا صرخة أو جلبة
.تصدر عنها

مُشوشة ومُلتبسة
،هي صورُ الأحلام
.مما يدفع لتفسيرها بطرقٍ عديدة ومختلفة
،اليقظةُ تعني اليقظة
.وهذا هو اللغز الأكبر

للأحلام مفاتيح
،اليقظة تنفتح وحدها
.ولا تسمح بإغلاقها
،تتناثر منها الشهادات المدرسية والنجوم
تتساقط منها الفراشات
،وسخانات المكاوي القديمة
والقبعات بلا رؤوسها
.وجماجم الغيوم
يتكون من ذلك لغز
.لا يمكن حله

.بدوننا ما كان للأحلام أن تكون
والذي بدونه ما كانت اليقظة
،غيرُ معلوم
ونتاجُ أرقهِ
.يستغرق كل من يستيقظ

،ليست الأحلام هي المجنونة
،المجنونة اليقظة
،ولو بسبب الإصرار
الذي به تتشبث
.بمسيرة الأحداث

في الأحلام مازال
،يعيش من مات منا حديثا
يبدو أنه معافى
.ويتمتع بالشباب
اليقظة تطرح أمامنا
.جسده الميت
.اليقظة لا تتراجع قيد أنملة

،أثيرية الأحلام تجعل
.الذاكرة تتخلص منها بسهولة
.اليقظة لا تخاف من النسيان

يا لها من صلابة
،تتربع على كاهلنا
،تُثقل الصدر
.تتكوم تحت القدمين

،لا مفر منها
لأنها تُصاحبنا في كل مهرب
وليس هناك من محطة
على طريق رحلتنا
.دون أن تنتظرنا فيها”
Wisława Szymborska

Oscar Wilde
“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”
Oscar Wilde

Mahatma Gandhi
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Abraham Lincoln
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
Abraham Lincoln

George Bernard Shaw
“Animals are my friends...and I don't eat my friends.”
George Bernard Shaw

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
