two passages

"Does she have a stomachache? Or maybe she is discovering the taste of her melancholy. Let her be, let her be sad, let her lose herself in solitude and her own smell. The first aim of an intelligent person is to achieve unhappiness when everyone around her is happy."

"The two of us gazed out the window without speaking for the longest time, I in my chair and Rüya on the divan, and we both---Rüya sadly and I with joy---thought about how beautiful it was."

-- Orhan Pamuk, "When Rüya is Sad"
