Time is a cruel thief to rob us of our former selves. We lose as much to life as we do to death.


Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey

Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey (born August 31, 1938 in Dallas, Texas) is an American journalist and playwright. Her first novel A Woman of Independent Means, a surprise best seller, published in 1978, the year she turned forty, was inspired by the life of her grandmother. With the support of her husband, playwright Oliver Hailey, she adapted it for the stage in 1983 as a one-person play starring Barbara Rush. In 1995 it became a six-hour NBC miniseries starring Sally Field. She has subsequently published three more best-selling novels: Life Sentences (1982), Joanna's Husband and David's Wife (1986--which she also adapted for the stage as a two-person play), and Home Free

    ο χρόνος είναι ένας σκληρός κλέφτης που μας ληστεύει τους πρώην εαυτούς μας. χάνουμε τόσο πολύ στη ζωή όσο και στον θάνατο.

    زمان یک دزد بی رحمانه است که خود سابق ما را از ما بگیرد. ما به همان اندازه که به زندگی می کشیم به زندگی می بازیم.

    aika on julma varas ryöstää meiltä entisen itsemme. menetämme yhtä paljon elämälle kuin kuolemaan.

    समय एक क्रूर चोर है जो हमें हमारे पूर्व सेवक को लूटता है। हम जीवन को उतना ही खो देते हैं जितना हम मृत्यु को प्राप्त कर लेते हैं।


    tiden er en grusom tyv for å frarøve oss våre tidligere selv. vi mister like mye til livet som vi gjør til døden.

    Время - жестокий вор, чтобы лишить нас прежней сущности. мы теряем столько же жизни, сколько и смерти.

    час - жорстокий злодій, який пограбує нас наших колишніх. ми втрачаємо стільки ж, скільки життя, як і до смерті.
