I don’t know my dear
If this is a dream
What year it is and what day,
I don’t know my dear,
If I am yours or
If you are my dream . . .

“The only great danger that exist is man himself. and we are pitifully unaware of it. We know nothing of man, far too little. His [psych] should be studied because we are the origin of all coming evil.”
“You see, the word belief is a difficult word for me. I don’t believe; I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis. Either I know a thing and then I know it. I don’t need to believe it. I don’t allow myself to believe a thing just for the sake of believing it; I can’t believe it. But when there are sufficient reasons to a certain hypothesis, I shall accept [these reasons], naturally.”

I also pen short stories and poems as well as translating a piece, if it interests me, now and then (all in Persian though, and do not expect much!). I undertake to put some of them here; behold some.
