Khaled Hosseini Quote: “I see the creative process as a necessarily thievish undertaking. Dig beneath a beautiful piece of writing... and you will find all manner of dishonor. Creating means vandalizing the lives of other people, turning them into unwilling and unwitting participants. You steal their desires, their dreams, pocket their flaws, their suffering. You take what does not belong to you. You do this knowingly.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “I think novelists, when they write their books, end up having occasionally serving a purpose and playing roles that they never really fully either intended or even understood.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “Aku harus berkonsentrasi, tidak boleh melakukan kesalahan.”

Khaled Hosseini Quote: “I give novels as gifts, and there is nothing I like to receive more as a gift.”

Khaled Hosseini Quote: “The bewildering success of my books continues to surprise me.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “The lucky ones, the ones who weren’t here when the place was getting bombed to hell. We’re not like these people. We shouldn’t pretend we are. The stories these people have to tell, we’re not entitled to them.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “All stories I write are compulsive. Anything I’ve ever written was because I don’t have a choice. I write stories because I can’t wait to tell it, I can’t wait to see how it ends.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “Tetapi, kupikir, alasan terbesar mengapa aku tidak memedulikan masa lalu Soraya adalah karena aku memiliki masa laluku sendiri. Aku tahu segalanya tentang penyesalan.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “No one snaps our composure quite like someone we love.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “President Karzai is an incredibly kind and decent man. I had the pleasure of meeting him, and he genuinely cares for his people. But I think he had too much of a tendency to want to rule by listening to all voices at all times.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “Afghanistan is a rural nation, where 85 percent of people live in the countryside. And out there it’s very, very conservative, very tribal – almost medieval.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “I lay there drifting, wondering, imagining...”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “It’s often a matter of sitting in front of the computer and worrying. It’s what writing comes down to – worrying that things aren’t going to work out.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “He was also one of those boys so bursting with energy that he drained others of theirs.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “It always hurts more to have and loose than not to have in first place.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “Hadn’t we both yearned for escape, reinvention, new identities? Hadn’t we each, in the end unmoored ourselves by cutting loose the anchors that weighed us down?”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “She suddenly realizes that she may not know how to live without Masooma. She doesn’t know if she can. How will she bear the days when Masooma’s absence feels like a far heavier burden than her presence ever had? How will she learn to tread around the edges of the big gaping hole where Masooma had once been?”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “It was like waking up one morning and finding that a wild animal has wandered into your house. No place felt safe to me.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “If there’s a God out there, then I would hope he has more important things to attend to than my drinking scotch or eating pork. Now, hop down. All this talk about sin has made me thirsty again.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “And yet, she sees, people find a way to survive, to go on.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “Baba Ayub didn’t understand. Just as he didn’t understand why a wave of something, something like the tail end of a sad dream, always swept through him whenever he heard the jingling, surprising him each time like an unexpected gust of wind. But then it passed, as all things do. It passed.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “I suspected every bearded man who stared at me to be a Talib killer, sent by Assef. Two things compounded my fears: There are a lot of bearded men in Peshawar, and everybody stares.”

Khaled Hosseini Quote: “Quiet is peace. Tranquillity. Quiet is turning down the VOLUME knob on life. Silence is pushing the OFF button. Shutting it down. All of it. Sohrab’s silence wasn’t the self-imposed silence of those with convictions, of protesters who seek to speak their cause by not speaking at all. It was the silence of one who has taken cover in a dark place, curled up all the edges and tucked them under.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “She said this in a pragmatic, almost indifferent, tone, and Mariam understood that this was a woman far past outrage. Here was a woman, she thought, who had understood that she was lucky to even be working, that there was always something, something else, that they could take away.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “It’s her way of keeping Mariam close awhile yet before time has its way, before it snatches Mariam from the garden of her memory like a weed pulled by its roots.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “An Afghan who is afraid of dying is an Afghan who is already dead.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “In her view, people, even if they had behaved deplorably in life, deserved a modicum of dignity in death. Especially family. – Marko’s mother.”
Khaled Hosseini Quote: “Her eyes traced the sleek shape of the table’s legs, the sinuous curves of its corners, the gleam of its reflective, dark brown surface. She noticed that every time she breathed out, the surface fogged, and she disappeared from her father’s table.”
