The way this graphic novel is structured makes the ending fairly predictable. However, it also has the effect of forcing a looming tragic cloud over everything you are reading. This is exacerbated by the colours used (mostly black and white, with fla...more

Danny Scheinmann
“And there, surrounded by death above and below, he sticks his tongue out and tastes the sweetness of life.”
Danny Scheinmann, Random Acts Of Heroic Love

Haruki Murakami
“It's a terrible thing when a person dies, whatever the circumstances. A hole opens up in the world, and we need to pay the proper respects. If we don't, the hole will never be filled in again.”
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

Alaa Al Aswany
“Our love of beauty is merely a trick produced by the way we look, and the broader the vision grows the clearer the wrinkles are seen”
Alaa Al Aswany

Muhammad Yunus
“To me, the poor are like Bonsai trees. When you plant the best seed of the tallest tree in a six-inch deep flower pot, you get a perfect replica of the tallest tree, but it is only inches tall. There is nothing wrong with the seed you planted; only the soil-base you provided was inadequate.

Poor people are bonsai people. There is nothing wrong with their seeds. Only society never gave them a base to grow on.”
Muhammad Yunus, Creating a World Without Poverty: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism

Charles Dickens
“The chuckle with which he said this, and the chuckle with which he paid for the turkey, and the chuckle with which he paid for the cab, and the chuckle with which he recompensed the boy, were only to be exceeded by the chuckle with which he sat down breathless in his chair again and chuckled till he cried.”
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
