102. "…Öylece durup, Handan‘a dönüsen Evgenia'yi, Evgenia‘ya dönüsen Handan'i ve bir anda ikisi birden olan Güzide‘yi izledim bir süre. Ikisi beni birakip gitmis olsa da, bu üç kadinda aslinda hep ayni kadini sevdigimi düsündüm. Hangi kadini?

Belki hepsini birden, belki hepsini ayri ayri ama üçünde de hep ayni kadini."

Right now.""Apologize for what? Telling the truth? Sorry, not feeling it."

It didn't matter much what most people in Midland City said out loud, except when they were talking about money or structures or travel or machinery - or other measurable thins.

Their imaginations insisted that nobody changed much from day to day. Their imaginations were flywheels on the ramshackle machinery of awful truth."

136. "When I look at my friend's marriages, with their routine day-to-dayness, they actually seem far more romantic than any dating relationship might be. Dating seems romantic, but for the most part it's an extended audition. Marriage seems boring, but for the most part it's a state of comfort and acceptance. Dating is about grand romantic gestures that mean little over the long-term. Marriage is about small acts of kindness that bond you over a lifetime. It's quietly romantic. He makes her tea.

Tezgahin kalinligi 3,10 santimetre, pencerenin kornisinin genisligi ise 8,8 santimetredir.
