"What is life? I told Fuat that question is absurd. Absurd, absurd. Why should a person ask that? Those who read books and get confused ask. Does Aunt Zeynep ask? She lives. I live too. Now I'm going to sleep, in the morning I'll get up, I'll do my work, I'll get married, I'll eat, I'll smoke, I'll laugh , I'll do those things over and over again. Then I'll cross over to the other side."

--from Orhan Pamuk's Cevdet Bey and His Sons
