“The note in the quill was intended for the girl, and it read, 'Yes and yes and yes.' Yes I love you, yes I miss you, and yes I know and remember that you do, too. For in her last missive she had written 'No and no.' That is to say, No I do not want anyone other than you, and no I do not manage to sleep at night.”
Meir Shalev

“החיים שלי לא רעים. יש לי עבודה שאני אוהבת, אני עושה אותה כמו שצריך, ויש לי מלחינים שכותבים לי שירים, כדי שאוכל לשיר להם קול שני, וסופרים שכותבים לי ספרים, שאקרא ואערוך אותם כמו שצריך. ואני גם יודעת ואוהבת להיות לבד, ובעיקר - אני יודעת להעסיק את עצמי.”
Meir Shalev, שתיים דובים

“A woman has to look good, but a man—a little bit nicer looking than a monkey is enough.”
