People say to you, ‘you’ve changed’, or something like that, well, I hope, for the sake of God that you have changed, because I don’t want to be the same person all my life. I want to be growing, I want to be expanding. I want to be changing. Because animate things change, inanimate things don’t change. Dead things don’t change. And the heart should be alive, it should be changing, it should be moving, it should be growing, its knowledge should be expanding.
Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

Događa se to u jesenjoj noći,
kada pada kestenje po asfaltu i kada se čuju psi u daljini,
i kada se tako neopisivo javlja čežnja za nekim,
tko bi bio dobar, naš, bliz, intiman, drug,
i kome bi mogli da pišemo pismo.
Ispovjedili bismo mu sve što leži u nama.
Pismo bi mu pisali a njega nema.
 M.Krleža, Čežnja
