Quotes

Baba: 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.

Young Hassan: For you, a thousand times over

Amir: [explaining Sohrab's presence] You see, General Sahib, my father slept with his servant's wife, and she bore him a son named Hassan. Hassan is dead now. That boy sleeping in the other room is Hassan's son. He's my nephew. That's what you tell people when they ask. And one more thing, General Sahib: you will never again refer to him as "a Hazara boy" in my presence. He has a name, and it's Sohrab.

Baba: The Mullahs want to rule our souls... and the Communists tell us we don't have any.

Baba: Fuck the Russia!

Baba: [as Dr. Starobin examines him] Where are you from?

Dr. Starobin: I grew up in Michigan. Came out here for medical school. Once you get used to that California sunshine...

Baba: But your family?

Dr. Starobin: My family? We're originally from Russia.

[Baba shoves him away, and is next seen with a different doctor]

Baba: [regarding the mullahs, who teach that drinking alcohol is a sin] I piss on the beards of all those self-righteous monkeys.
