“Because there's something about him - there's always been something about him that's intrigued me and I don't understand it. I wish I could ignore it but I can't. Because I look at him and wonder if maybe it's just me? Maybe I'm naive?
But I see layers, shades of gold and green and a person who's never been given a chance to be human and I wonder if I'm just as cruel as my own oppressors if I decide that society is right, that some people are too far gone, that sometimes you can't turn back, that there are people in this world who don't deserve a second chance and I can't I can't I can't
I can't help but disagree.”

“Аз съм същество, съставено от букви, персонаж, оживял в изречения, въображаемо създание, родено от художествена измислица.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Tahereh Mafi
“Не съм мечтала за красиви дрехи или приказни обувки, или скъпи неща. Не съм си мечтала да се облека в коприна от глава до пети. Мечтаех единствено да протегна ръка и да докосна друго човешко същество, не само с ръцете си, но и със сърцето си. Но виждах света в неотзивчивостта му, както и жестокото му, сурово порицание.. и студените му, презрителни очи. Виждах го навсякъде край себе си.
Имах толкова много време да се вслушвам.
Да наблюдавам.
Да изучавам хора, места и възможности. Трябваше единствено да отворя очи. Да отворя някоя книга - да видя как историите се пропиват от страница в страница. Да видя спомените, запечатани на хартия.
Прекарах живота си затворена между страниците на безброй книги.
Заради липсата на човешки взаимоотношения си създадох връзки с хартиени персонажи. Изживях любов и загуба чрез разказите, преплетени в историята; изживях юношеството си по аналогия. Светът ми представлява плетеница от думи, свързваща крайник с крайник, кости със сухожилия, мисли и представи. Аз съм същество, съставено от букви, персонаж, оживял в изречения, въображаемо създание, родено от художествена измислица.
Те искат да изтрият от лицето на земята всеки пунктуационен знак в живота ми, аз не мога да им го позволя..”

“Tendría que estar ciego para perderme algo así. Quiero decir, demonios, sólo la manera en que te mira. Es como que el chico nunca haya visto a una mujer en su vida. Como poner comida en frente de un hombre muerto de hambre y decirle que no puede comerlo.”

Tahereh Mafi
“„Слънцето е безочливо: винаги напуска света, щом се отегчи от нас. Луната е предан спътник. Никога не си тръгва. Винаги стои на мястото си и ни наблюдава непоколебимо, познава ни в светлите и тъмните ни моменти, променя се непрекъснато също като нас самите. Всяка нощ изгрява с различно лице. Понякога вяло и немощно, понякога силно и пълно със светлина. Луната разбира какво е да си човек. Несигурен. Самотен. Осеян с несъвършенства като с кратери.”
