Good thing Genghis Itmatov

The state is the fuel of human fuel.

Man is always the same, he does not develop as much as a hair.

They say there is hope as long as there is life.

Real happiness comes slowly, little by little.

The hardest thing for people to do is to be human every day.

I am never different from my boyfriend, I am his hair, I am his breath.

What happens when a branch breaks, as long as the trunk of a flat tree remains intact.

No one can explain everything, and words are not enough to explain everything.

I could close my eyes, put my ears, but I couldn’t think.

What a beautiful song the elders sang! Each song is like its own history.

If emotion is nothing but song then why be ashamed to sing?

People today accept themselves as he is; But it is his nature to be someone else tomorrow.

Strange creatures, those people! They were not stable, they shouted and raised their legs.
