Laila (at fourteen years): What would your mother say when she saw you smoke?
Hosseini quotes
"Mariam is never very far, she is here, in these walls they've repainted, in the trees they've planted, in the blankets that keep the children warm, in these pillows and books and pencils. She is in the children's laughter. She is in the verses Aziza recites and in the prayers she mutters when she bows westward. But, mostly, Miriam is in Laila's own heart, where she shines with the bursting radiance of a thousand suns."
Hosseini
Mariam: No, it is fair. I killed our husband, Laila. I deprived your son of a father. Even if we escape, I...I won't be able to look at him without shame. No, it's my fault. Take care, Laila jo.




Hosseini Khaled quotes
Hasina: That's because you have a beard, my dear.

Regret...when it comes to you, I have oceans of it. -Jalil's letter

Nana (to Mariam): When I'm gone, you'll have nothing in this world. You are nothing!
Khaled Hosseini quotes
Women have always had it hard in this country, Laila, but they're probably more free now,f under the communists, and have more rights than they've ever had before. -Babi
Khaled Hosseini
Nana (to Mariam) : A man's heart isn't like a woman's womb, Mariam! It won't bleed, it won't make room for you. A man's heart is a wretched, wretched thing. I'm all you have in this world, Mariam and when I'm gone, you'll have nothing. You are nothing!
Hosseini Khaled
Laila: What girls?
