"What’s terrible is to pretend that second-rate is first-rate. To pretend that you don’t need love when you do; or you like your work when you know quite well you’re capable of better.” 
"That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way."
“Whatever you’re meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible.”
Doris Lessing, born in Iran (then known as Persia) and brought up in the African bush in Zimbabwe, a Marxist-turned-Sufi novelist, playwright, poet, author of ”feminist bible” - The Golden Notebook, librettist, sci-fi writer, and the eleventh woman to ever receive the Nobel Prize in Lit, dead at 94.

you bury me…

Ya’aburnee (Arabic)  Both morbid and beautiful at once, this incantatory word means “You bury me,” a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person because of how difficult it would be to live without them.

Even when God seemed to have abandoned me, he was watching. Even when He seemed indifferent to my suffering, He was watching and when I was beyond all hope of saving… He gave me rest and gave me a sign to continue my journey…
