“A sunflower field is like a sky with a thousand suns.”
Corina Abdulahm-Negura

Henri Poincaré
“Consider now the Milky Way. Here also we see an innumerable dust, only the grains of this dust are no longer atoms but stars; these grains also move with great velocities, they act at a distance one upon another, but this action is so slight at great distances that their trajectories are rectilineal; nevertheless, from time to time, two of them may come near enough together to be deviated from their course, like a comet that passed too close to Jupiter. In a word, in the eyes of a giant, to whom our Suns were what our atoms are to us, the Milky Way would only look like a bubble of gas.”
Henri Poincaré, Science and Method

Laura Kreitzer
“A growing heat, like a million blazing suns all focused on me, lit my insides. It felt like I was being cooked in the Gabriella Roast Cooker, me spinning around-and-around to heat my flesh evenly. For some reason I was having trouble comprehending the sudden change in my revolving world as I swelled with a horrible, billowing fire.”
Laura Kreitzer, Abyss

Asghar Abbas
“We've been dead for thousands and thousands of years. Dead or sleeping, depends on how you feel about it at any given moment. But that's okay. The trouble starts when you are born, then everything becomes taxing and temporary. When they pulled us into awareness, they killed us. Then we get saddled with a seven minute relay, at best. A soft limbo that's only palliative and comforting in theory. A momentary respite that's a cosmic joke of course and still resented by the divine. A petty haggling of which we weren't even a part of. When forced into an existence, we turned into the ward of all that breathes, subjected to the known universe, and though always partial to the unknown, which wasn't really found and never understood, is lost to us.”
Asghar Abbas

Anni Taylor
“She let the petals drop through her fingers. “People romanticise stars. They’re just hot-as-hell suns. Not centaurs. Not twinkling little jewels to wish upon. Just suns.”
Anni Taylor, Poison Orchids

“There are stars in the sky that are hundreds of times larger than our Sun. And we can fit 1,300,000 Earths inside of our Sun. There are multiple-star systems, which are systems of planets orbiting two, three, six, or seven...stars. If we were in one of those then when we look up, we'd have multiple "Suns" in our sky! This is our reality. But then we still find reasons to care about who marries who, or who beds who, or what church someone goes to. Our reality is awesome, but then we make up trivialities in our heads and call them "higher values" or "ways of being". I wonder, if everyone were to realise the vastness of our universe, would we finally trample the homemade trivialities to find our own true purposes?”
C. JoyBell C.

Khaled Hosseini
“Prošle sedmice Bibi jo donijela je vijest da Jalilove kćerke Saideh i Naheed trebaju krenuti u Mehrijinu djevojačku školu u Heratu. Otad su se misli o učionici i učiteljima kovitlale u Mariaminoj glavi, slike sveski sa linijama, stupci brojeva i olovke što ostavljaju taman, debeo trag. Zamišljala je sebe u učionici sa drugim djevojčicama njenih godina. Žudjela je za tim da stavi linijar na stranicu sveske, i vuče crte koje izgledaju važno.”
Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns
