“كيف نضجر وللسماء هذه الزرقة ، وللأرض هذه الخضرة ، وللورد هذا الشذا ، وللقلب هذه القدرة العجيبة على الحب ، وللروح هذه الطاقة اللانهائية على الإيمان. كيف نضجر وفي الدنيا من نحبهم ، ومن نعجب بهم ، ومن يحبوننا ، ومن يعجبون بنا.”
نجيب محفوظ

“عندما تتكاثر المصائب يمحو بعضها بعضاً ..
وتحل بك سعادة جنونية غريبة المذاق ..
وتستطيع أن تضحك من قلب لم يعد يعرف الخوف !”
نجيب محفوظ

“الخوف لا يمنع من الموت و لكنه يمنع من الحياة.”
نجيب محفوظ, أولاد حارتنا
