“We had been everywhere. We had really seen nothing. And I catch myself thinking today that our long journey had only defiled with a sinuous trail of slime the lovely, trustful, dreamy, enormous country that by then, in retrospect, was no more to us than a collection of dog-eared maps, ruined tour books, old tires, and her sobs in the night—every night, every night—the moment I feigned sleep.”
— Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

“There’s an opposite to déjà vu. They call it jamais vu. It’s when you meet the same people or visit places, again and again, but each time is the first. Everybody is always a stranger. Nothing is ever familiar.”
— Chuch Palahniuk (via moaka)

Anonymous said: Being a Persian man yourself, what is your opinion of the Bravo reality show, The Shahs of Sunset?
I don’t like it at all. Mainly, because it misrepresents Iranian diaspora and Persian community as a whole.

"For love is something so positive, so strong, so real that it is as impossible for one who loves to take back that feeling as it is to take his own life."
