You’ve thrown away your chance for a normal life…This is what makes you such an exceptional person.
-Orhan Pamuk. Snow.
Near Orhan Pamuk’s Museum of Innocence, Istanbul.
I’m an Orhan Pamuk fan – lovely quote. Thank you.
Thank you! This is one of my favorite lines from his work. 🙂
Reblogged this on The Nice Thing About Strangers.
I have never heard this quote, but I absolutely love it! It definitely adds encouragement to take the non-traditional path through life 😉 Thanks for the wonderful quote and reminder, Paige – a perfect way to being my Sunday morning with coffee 🙂
🙂 Thank you, Dave! I marked this line out years ago and I’ve written it on a few birthday cards for friends who are setting the world on fire! 🙂 Happy Sunday!
I never realized, until now, that the Museum of Innocence is a real place. Thanks for the photo/caption.
Yes, Pamuk opened it in Cihangir. I lived down the street for a month, and it made the foot traffic pretty interesting. It’s lovely to live on a street where visitors are happily toting a book–even if it’s not my favorite of his novels. 🙂
Happy New Year, Ann Marie!
