The Kite Runner by Hosseini

The only sin that mattered was theft. When you tell a lie you steal a man's right to the truth.

Some things mattered more than the truth.

True redemption--when guilt leads to good.

Time can be a greedy thing--sometimes it steals all the details for itself.

It always hurts more to have and lose than not to have in the first place.

There is a way to be good again.

...but it's wrong what they say about the past, I've learned, about how you can bury it. Because the past claws its way out.

...in actuality more of a quiet surrender, not so much an acceptance as an act of relinquishment by one too weary to decide and far too tired to believe.

For you a thousand times over.

They only let you be this happy if they're preparing to take something from you.

Tashakor! (Thank You)
