“أيها الدرويش الفاني : مما تخشى ؟! ..
إذهب وشأنك, ولا تخف من السلطان, ولا تخش الشيطان!!.
كن فيلسوفا, ترى العالم ألعوبة! ولا تكن صبياً هلوعاً؟!..
إنه سيان عندي, طال العمر أو قصر.. فإن هدفي أن أبلغ الغاية,
وحينئذ أقول: فزت ورب الكعبة! ـ”
جمال الدين الأفغاني

نزار قباني
“أدمنت احزاني
فصرت اخاف ان لا احزنا
I got addicted to my sorrows,
Until I have gotten scared of not being sorrowed.

وطعنت آلافا من المرات
حتى صار يوجعني بان لا اطعنا
And I was stabbed thousands of times,
Until it felt painful not to be stabbed.

ولعنت في كل اللغات
حتى صار يقلقني بان لا العنا
And I was cursed in all the languages,
Until I started being nervous of not being cursed.

ولقد تشابهت كل البلاد
فلا ارى نفسي هناك، ولا ارى نفسي هنا
And all the countries seemed the same,
That I don't see myself there, And I don't see myself here.”
نزار قباني

Yacine Kateb
“Les corps des femmes désirées, comme les dépouilles des vipères et les parfums volatils, ne sont pas faits pour dépérir, pourrir et s' évaporer dans notre atmosphère : fioles, bocaux et baignoires : c'est là que doivent durer les fleurs, scintiller les écailles et les femmes s' épanouir, loin de l' air et du temps, ainsi qu'un continent englouti ou une épave qu'on saborde, pour y découvrir plus tard, en cas de survie, un ultime trésor.”

نزار قباني
“Don’t love deeply, till you make sure that the other part loves you with the same depth, because the depth of your love today, is the depth of your wound tomorrow.”
نزار قباني
