“لا أفهم شيئا. لماذا أنتظر رحال وزينة في المرسى وغيابهما ليس مثل غياب إخوتي، لم هذا الانتظار ما لم يكونا في سفر؟! أنا أذعن لإيماني، والإيمان لايعدو كونه رغبة، والرغبة ليست أكيدة التحقق ولكن شيئا أفضل من لاشيء. أوغل في تفكيري تشاوما لعل الهاتف يصحو من غفوته، كما عودني، يسكن رعشة أضلعي. أكذبه لعله ينتفض، يثبت لي عكس ما أقول. أسئلة الفقد تطوقني. ألعن عقلي. والسوال.... وحده السوال منحة العقل ومحنته. والإيمان هو أن تعلق أسئلتك على حبال الغيب، وأن تجمد عقلك، وأن تعقد صفقة مع لاشيء، لأن لاسبيل لك إلا انتظار غد قد يجيء بما تريد أو لا يجيء . لا العقل يسعفني ولا الإيمان ولا برزخ الأسئلة بينهما.”
Saud Alsanousi, حمام الدار

“My mother once said, 'If you come across a man with more than one personality, you can be sure he's looking for himself in one of them, because he has no character.' But I think she was wrong”
Saud Alsanousi

“I read lots of stories, fantasies, and ones about real life. I loved cinderella and Cosette, The heroine of Les Miserables, and I ended up a mid like them but, unlike them, my story didn't have a happy ending”
Saud Alsanousi, ساق البامبو
