    "No," I said, louder this time. "I mean asscrown. The crown on top of the asshat that covers the asshole of the assclown. The very zenith in the hierarchy of asses," I said, as though I was reading from a dictionary of modern profanity.

    "I guess you nailed me then.”

    Milan Kundera
    “When we want to give expression to a dramatic situation in our lives, we tend to use metaphors of heaviness. We say that something has become a great burden to us. We either bear the burden or fail and go down with it, we struggle with it, win or lose. And Sabina - what had come over her? Nothing. She had left a man because she felt like leaving him. Had he persecuted her? Had he tried to take revenge on her? No. Her drama was a drama not of heaviness but of lightness. What fell to her lot was not the burden, but the unbearable lightness of being.”

    Ahlam Mosteghanemi
    “أن تنسى شخصا أحببته لسنوات لا يعني أنك محوته من ذاكرتك، أنت فقط غيرت مكانه في الذاكرة، ما عاد في واجهة ذاكرتك.. حاضرا كل يوم بتفاصيله، ما عاد ذاكرتك كل حين.. غدا ذاكرتك أحيانا.. الأمر يتطلب أن يشغل آخر مكانه، و يدفع بوجوده إلى الخلف في ترتيب الذكريات"
    — أحلام مستغانمي (com نسيان)

    "أصبحت امرأة حرة .. فقط لأنني قررت أن أكف عن الحلم, الحرية أن لا تنتظر شيئاً..والترقب حالة عبودية"
