“The exceptional had become habitual, and tragedies were simply mundane—perhaps that was the worst part of this war.”
Khaled Khalifa, Death Is Hard Work

“La vita dona sempre un'occasione meravigliosa per prenderti gioco dei tuoi nemici, se ce l'hai fatta ad uscire vivo dalle loro mani.”
Khaled Khalifa, Elogio dell'odio

“The story of their father’s body got no sympathy from them; they had seen too many bodies already. As ever, death was so close to them that they had stopped giving it any particular consideration.”
Khaled Khalifa, Death Is Hard Work
