“QUOTATIONS!!!!!”
• Rahim in the The Kite Runner says the same thing as
he admonishes Baba regarding his relationship with his
son Amir: “Children aren’t coloring books! You don’t get
to fill them with your favorite colors.”
• Towards the end of the story and with Baba already
dead, he plays a father’s role as he advises Amir to do
what needs to be done: “There is a way to be good
again.” And this paves the way to Amir’s complete
healing in the end.
