عظيم ان تصنع الف صديق فى عام
ولكن الاعظم .. ان تصنع صديق لألف عام


Its great when you make thousands of friends each year,
But whats even greater is when you make a friend that can last for a thousand years.

"TIME PASSES TIME
does not pass. Time all
but passes. Time usually
passes. Time passing and
gazing. Time has no gaze.
Time as perseverance.
Time as hunger. Time in
a natural way. Time when
you were six the day a
mountain. Mountain time.
Time I don’t remember.
Time for a dog in an alley
caught in the beam of your
flashlight."

The river goes but you stopped here
You stopped here for me
You took my heart in tow
How could I let you go"
