“The fact that you got a little happier today doesn’t change the fact
that you also became a little sadder.
Every day you become a little more of both, which means that right now,
at this exact moment, you’re the happiest and the saddest
you’ve ever been in your whole life…
Think about it it. Have you ever been happier than right now,
lying here in the grass? And have you ever been sadder?
It isn’t like that for everyone.
Some people just get happier and happier every day.
And some people just get sadder and sadder.
And some people, like you, get both.
And what about you, are you the happiest and the saddest right now that you’ve ever been?
Of course I am.
Because nothing makes me happier and nothing makes me sadder than you.”
― Nicole Krauss, The History of Love
Dacă steaua din tine se mai face-auzită,
simțită și înțeleasă,
Atunci, doar atunci îți scapără inima
și-ți poți face lumea
Numai atunci zâmbetul lunii
îți este și ție icoană,
Iar razele soarelui lucindu-ți a vreme
urzesc din fierbinte,
If the star within us can still make itself heard,
still felt and still keeping stride,
Then, only then our heart beats like magic,
turning the world
in a bride
And then, only then the smile of the moon
is ours too, beyond frown.
And sun rays sublime shining like sacred
can weave from deep warmth,
