Hilal Chouman
“تذكرتُ أني لا أستطيع أن أبكي. تذكرت أني أجهد منذ أيام، ولا أُخرِج أي دمعٍ من مقلتيّ، وها أنا الآن لا أحظى حتى بابتسامة. لا الابتسام ولا الدمع. أين الخطأ؟ ما الذي أستمرُّ بتفويته؟”
Hilal Chouman, ليمبو بيروت

George Orwell
“Listen, the more men you’ve had, the more I love you. Do you understand that?”
“Yes, perfectly.”
“I hate purity, I hate goodness. I don’t want any virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone to be corrupt to the bones.”
“Well then, I ought to suit you, dear. I’m corrupt to the bones.”
George Orwell, 1984

الطيب صالح
“هذه الغرفة عبارة عن نكتة كبيرة. كالحياة. تحسب فيها سرًّا وليس فيها شيء. لا شيء إطلاقًا.”
الطيب صالح, Season of Migration to the North

واسيني الأعرج
“كم أتمنى لو كان إنسانا تافهًا أو عاديًا لنسيته بسرعة وانصرفت للحياة ولكنه كان شيئا آخر. لم يشبه أحدًا ولم يكن أحد يشبهه.”
واسيني الأعرج, طوق الياسمين

الطيب صالح
“نحن بمقاييس العالم الصناعي الأوروبي، فلاحون فقراء، ولكنني حين أعانق جدّي أحس بالغنى، كأنني نغمة من دقات قلب الكون نفسه.”
الطيب صالح, Season of Migration to the North
