“Only when a tree is small can you notice its growth. When it is bigger, it continues to grow, but imperceptibly.”
Perumal Murugan, One Part Woman

“But do you know how you should live? Like that crow that has built a nest on that palm tree. When it knows it is going to lay eggs, it builds its nest. Then it incubates the eggs and hatches them. It finds food for the little ones and takes care of them until they grow their own wings. Once that happens, what do you think is the relationship between the baby crow and its mother? They go their separate ways. “You got your wings, now get out of here, and fend for yourself.” That’s the way to live. Instead, we give birth, raise them, get them married, save money and struggle. Is this any way to live? If we were more like crows and cuckoos, I’d also like to have children.”
பெருமாள் முருகன் [Perumal Murugan], One Part Woman

“Portia flowers always grow more beautiful as they fade.”
Perumal Murugan, One Part Woman
