Andrzej Sapkowski
“You can't stop a soldier from being frightened but you can give him motivation to help him overcome that fear. I have no such motivation. I can't have. I'm a witcher: an artificially created mutant. I kill monsters for money. I defend children when their parents pay me to. If Nilfgaardian parents pay me, I'll defend Nilfgaardian children. And even if the world lies in ruin - which does not seem likely to me - I'll carry on killing monsters in the ruins of this world until some monster kills me. That is my fate, my reason, my life and my attitude to the world. And it is not what I chose. It was chosen for me.”
Andrzej Sapkowski, Krew elfów

“في عالم آخر
بلا عوائق
بلا قيود
بلا نصيب
بلا ظروف
عانقني بقوة رغمًا عن كل عُقدي النفسية
وأخبرني إن كل شيء سـ يكون على ما يرام
في عالم آخر”

“الرابعة فجرًا أحتسي فنجان من القهوة ممزوجًا بالأرق غير مبالية بـ محاولات أمي المتكرره لـ لفت نظري لهذا السواد المحتل أسفل عيناي
تاركة ما تبقى من روحي لعقلي مُجبرةً
يقولون دائمًا إن فراغ القلب يملأه الحب، ولكن ماذا عن فراغ الروح..؟
روحًا هشه شوهت الحياة نقائها ولم يتبقى منها سوى رماد
متعبة.. متعبة من الركض في متاهة عقلي تلك وأنا أعلم إنها بلا مخرج
متبعة من ذاتي.. من ذلك الأنفصام الذي أعيشه، من الشخصان اللذان أنا عليهما
متعبة من تناقضهما وذلك الصراع الذي ينشب بينهم كل يوم فـ أحدهما يمقتني والآخر يشفق عليّ
متعبة من سقوطي في تلك الفجوة الزمنية؛ الماضي يطاردني ولا أشعر بالحاضر وأخاف المستقبل..”
مي عز الدين
