Water is a Turkmen’s life, a horse is his wings, and a carpet is his soul.
– Turkmen Proverb
“I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.”
“The sun is nice but it lights things up so much that you can’t
see very far. . . The night time is better. It stretches your soul
to the stars.”
–“Mister God, This is Anna”
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
