Jhumpa Lahiri
“Remember that you and I made this journey together to a place where there was nowhere left to go.”
Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake

Jhumpa Lahiri
“Without a single grandparent or parent or uncle or aunt at her side, the baby’s birth, like most everything else in America, feels somehow haphazard, only half true. As she strokes and suckles and studies her son, she can’t help but pity him. She has never known of a person entering the world so alone, so deprived.”
Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake

Mahmoud Darwish
“We are captives, even if our wheat grows over the fences/ and swallows rise from our broken chains./ We are captives of what we love, what we desire, and what we are.”
Mahmoud Darwish, Unfortunately, It Was Paradise: Selected Poems

فرید الدین عطار
“I'd rather die deceived by dreams than give
My heart to home and trade and never live.”
فرید الدین عطار, The Conference of the Birds

Mahmoud Darwish
“The stars had only one task: they taught me how to read.
They taught me I had a language in heaven
and another language on earth.”
Mahmoud Darwish, Unfortunately, It Was Paradise: Selected Poems
