But better to get hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie.
For you, a thousand times over
It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime...
I suspect the truth is that we are waiting, all of us, against insurmountable odds, for something extraordinary to happen to us.
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
There is only one sin. and that is theft... when you tell a lie, you steal someones right to the truth.
Marriage can wait, education cannot.
I will follow you to the ends of the world.
The problem, of course, was that [he] saw the world in black and white. And he got to decide what was black and what was white. You can't love a person who lives that way without fearing him too. Maybe even hating him a little.
And the past held only this wisdom: that love was a damaging mistake, and its accomplice, hope, a treacherous illusion. And whenever those twin poisonous flowers began to sprout in the parched land of that field, Mariam uprooted them. She uprooted them and ditched them before they took hold.
People say that eyes are windows to the soul.
Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it. - Amir
In the end, the world always wins. That's just the way of things.
and every day I thank [God] that I am alive, not because I fear death, but because my wife has a husband and my son is not an orphan.
I have a theory about marriage, Monsieur Boustouler. And it's that nearly always you will know within two weeks if it's going to work. It's astonishing how many people remain shackled for years, decades even, in a protracted and mutual state of self-delusion and false hope when in fact they had their answer in those first two weeks.
There is a way to be good again...
Behind every trial and sorrow that He makes us shoulder, God has a reason.
Sad stories make good books
Пустинните бурени оцеляват, а пролетното цвете разцъфва и повяхва.
If there's a God out there, then i would hope he has more important things to attend to than my drinking scotch or eating pork.
