The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
“Perhaps the greatest faculty our minds possess is the ability to cope with pain. Classic thinking teaches us of the four doors of the mind, which everyone moves through according to their need.

First is the door of sleep. Sleep offers us a retreat from the world and all its pain. Sleep marks passing time, giving us distance from the things that have hurt us. When a person is wounded they will often fall unconscious. Similarly, someone who hears traumatic news will often swoon or faint.

“Wise men are not pacifists; they are merely less likely to jump up and retaliate against their antagonizers. They know that needless antagonizers are virtually already insecure enough.”

أبو العلاء المعري
“ولما رأيت الجهل في الناس فاشيا
تجاهلت حتى قيل إني جاهل
فوا عجبا كم يدعي الفضل ناقص
ووا أسفا كم يظهر النقص فاضل”

Last is the door of death. The final resort. Nothing can hurt us after we are dead, or so we have been told.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
