Meandering about . . .

Today is the birthday of Khaled Hosseini (born March 4, 1965), novelist and physician. He is best known for the novel, The Kite Runner.

"It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime..." — Khaled Hosseini

". . . but better to be hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie." — Khaled Hosseini

"And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too." — Khaled Hosseini

". . . it always hurts more to have and lose than to not have in the first place." — Khaled Hosseini

"I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded; not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night." — Khaled Hosseini
