“Napolyon olduğunu sürekli düşlemekten hoşlanan adamla, kendini Napolyon sanan adam arasındaki fark, mutlu hayalci ile mutsuz şizofren arasındaki farktır.”
From İstanbul, Hatıralar ve Şehir by Orhan Pamuk
(The difference between the man who likes to dream non-stop that he is Napoleon and the man who thinks that he is Napolean is the same difference between the happy dreamer and the unhappy schizophrene.)

Our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we touch…
From the movie “Remember Me“
If only somehow you could have been mine, what wouldn’t
have happened in the world?
I’m everything you lost. You won’t forgive me.
My memory keeps getting in the way of your history.
There is nothing to forgive.You can’t forgive me.
I hid my pain even from myself; I revealed my pain only to myself.
There is everything to forgive. You can’t forgive me.
If only somehow you could have been mine,
what would not have been possible in the world?
This week i did not finish any book to refer to or to take any excerpt from it, however while i was going through one of my old notepads i came across a nice quote which i had noted down and i would like to share especially with my female readers…i do not know may be the male ones can adapt it for themselves as well 🙂
A woman should have one old love she can imagine going back to…and one who reminds her how far she has come!
This week’s quotes are from Stephenie Meyer’s popular Twilight series…
So the lion fell in love with the lamb…
It will be as though I never existed…
Forbidden to remember, terrified to forget…
What a softener of the heart was this persuasion. How much could it not tempt her to forgive!
Misery such as mine has no pride…
From Sense & Sensibility – Jane Austen
Happy 100th post to me:)
This week i want to share a short paragraph with you which i read in one of the Turkish literary magazines named “K”. I am not able to remember the name of the writer but it is originally in Turkish so i will translate it into English for the ones who are interested.
“Günah nedir? Günah kimindir? Hindistan’da bir ineği, Arabistan’da domuzu yemek, Batı’da şarabı içmemek, İran’da sevişmek, Tayland’da sevişmemek…”
“What is a sin? To whom it belongs to? Eating a cow in India and a pig in Arabistan, not to drink wine in West, to make love in Iran and not to make love in Thailand…”
