Favorite Mariam Quotes

1. "Quando eu era muito novo e sentia em mim o impulso irreprimível de estar em qualquer outro lugar, foi-me assegurado por pessoas de idade madura que a maturidade curaria este desejo ardente. Quando os anos me indicavam como amadurecido, o remédio prescrito foi a meia-idade. Na meia-idade, asseguraram-me que uns anos mais acalmariam a minha febre, e agora, que tenho cinquenta e oito, talvez a senilidade o consiga. Nada surtiu efeito. Quatro sopros roufenhos do apito de um navio ainda arrepiam o cabelo da minha nuca e põem os meus pés a sapatear. O som de um avião de jacto, de um motor a aquecer, até o bater de cascos ferrados no pavimento, provocam o antigo formigar, a boca seca e o olhar vago, o calor das palmas das mãos e a agitação violenta do estômago, aos pulos sob a caixa das costelas. Por outras palavras, não melhoro, ou, indo mais longe, quem foi vadio é sempre vadio. Receio que a doença seja incurável."
Author: John Steinbeck
2. "Laila watches Mariam glue strands of yarn onto her doll's head. In a few years, this little girl will be a woman who will make small demands on life, who will never burden others, who will never let on that she too had sorrows, disappointments, dreams that have been ridiculed. A woman who will be like a rock in a riverbed, enduring without complaint, her grace not sullied but shaped by the turbulence that washes over her. Already Laila sees something behind this young girl's eyes, something deep in her core, that neither Rasheed nor the Taliban will be able to break. something as hard and unyielding as a block of limestone. Something that, in the end, will be her undoing and Laila's salvation.The little girl looks up. Puts the doll down. Smiles."
Author: Khaled Hosseini

Author: Khaled Hosseini
9. "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."
Author: Khaled Hosseini

13. "When Aziza first spotted Mariam in the morning, her eyes always sprang open, and she began mewling and squirming in her mother's grip. She thrust her arms toward Mariam, demanding to be held, her tiny hands opening and closing urgently, on her face a look of both adoration and quivering anxiety..."Why have you pinned your little heart to an old, ugly hag like me?" Mariam would murmur into Aziza's hair... "What have I got to give you?"But Aziza only muttered contentedly and dug her face in deeper. And when she did that, Mariam swooned. Her eyes watered. Her heart took flight. And she marveled at how, after all these years of rattling loose, she had found in this little creature the first true connection in her life of false, failed connections."
