Khaled Hosseini chose to write this in the text to show how the main character, Amir, must now deal with adversity throughout the novel. The quote can teach society to think through decisions and determine what is more important for the future. The same event could have happened in real life, and Hosseini’s goal is that the right decision is made by anyone that endures a situation like this.
