Tr(f)ace


We know that people are formed by light and air, their inherited traits, and their actions,
and we recognise people and distinguish one from another by their appearance. We can tell from appearence the work someone does or does not do; we can read in his face whether he is happy or troubled, for life unavoidably leaves its trace there.

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. "

Elizabeth Kübler-Ross

...



Nowadays, I give up every expectation or thought about a certain reality that I used to call mine.

Hayat


Sevgili dostum Nilüfer'in bloğundan enfes bir alıntı...
Gördüğüm ve söyledigim
Söylediğim ve sustuğum
Sustuğum ve düşlediğim
Düşlediğim ve unuttuğum
Bir şiirdir hayat....

Little Prince


One of my Favorites...

"Goodbye," said the fox. "And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."

Little Prince, chapter 21

Dostların sohbetinden ıstırap duyarım.Çünkü çirkin huylarımı güzel gösterirler.Kusurumu hüner ve olgunluk sayarlar, dikenimi gül ve yasemin yaparlar. Nerde o pervasız, küstah düşmanlar ki, bana benim ayıbımı göstersinler.
