The seed of DUST CHILD was planted a long time ago, during my childhood. I was born in a small village in the North of Việt Nam and migrated with my family when I was Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“What my uncle said made me think. I had resented America, too. But by reading their books, I saw the other side of them--their humanity. Somehow I was sure that if people were willing to read each other, and see the light of other cultures, there would be no war on earth.”
Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai, The Mountains Sing

“Human lives were short and fragile. Time and illnesses consumed us, like flames burning away these pieces of wood. But it didn’t matter how long or short we lived. It mattered more how much light we were able to shed on those we loved and how many people we touched with our compassion.”
Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai, The Mountains Sing

“As long as I have my voice, I am still alive.”
Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai, The Mountains Sing
