(Quotes from the book, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini)

The Kite Runner is a book by Khaled Hosseini.  But it is not just a book; it is a life that you live when you read the book and never recover from it. The Independent said about the book, “Guaranteed to move even the hardest heart”. No matter how many times you have read it already, open the book again, read two lines and you’ll end up reading pages and going through all the emotions once again. It is immortal.

The book, The Kite Runner, has extremely beautiful lines which are unforgettable. To re-live the book again here are some of them:

“For you, a thousand times over.”
Hassan said this line to Amir when he ran the kite. It is the most touching line of this book.
“There is always a way to be good again.”
Rahim Khan told this to Amir when they met later in the story.
“He had won because winners won and everyone else just went home.”
Amir thought this about his father, because for his father winning was important.
“And that’s the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.”
Amir awed at Hassan’s honesty every single time throughout the story.
“Tashakor”    It means thank you.
“There is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft. .. When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness.”
Amir’s father told to this to him and it actually makes a lot of sense.
“Children aren’t coloring books. You don’t get to fill them with your favorite colors.”
Rahim Khan tried to explain this to Baba so that he wasn’t tough on Amir.


And there are many more of them. Let us know which one touched you!
