  • Marriage can wait, education cannot.
  • Of all the hardships a person had to face, none was more punishing than the simple act of waiting.
  • Miriam wished for so much in those final moments. Yet as she closed her eyes, it was not regret any longer but a sensation of abundant peace that washed over her. She thought of her entry into this world, the harami child of a lowly villager, an unintended thing, a pitiable, regrettable accident. A weed. And yet she was leaving the world as a woman who had loved and been loved back. She was leaving it as a friend, a companion, a guardian. A mother. A person of consequence at last. No. It was not so bad, Miriam thought, that she should die this way. Not so bad. This was a legitimate end to a life of illegitimate belongings.
  • You see, some things I can teach you. Some you learn from books. But there are things that, well, you have to see and feel.
  • “You know.”
    “Know what?”
    “That I only have eyes for you.”
  • Because a society has no chance of success if its women are uneducated, Laila. No chance.

A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini

  1. “Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people. Before you tell me how much you love your god, show me in how much you love all his children. Before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.”

    – Cory Booker
