the blind owl by sadegh hedayat

It was always my opinion that the best course a man could take in life was to remain silent; that one could not do better than withdraw into solitude like the bittern which spreads its wings beside some lonely lake.

–Sadegh Hedayat, The Blind Owl (translation by D. P. Costello)
