Memorial do Convento - Jose Saramago

"A man's home is not for all hours, but he soon begins to miss it if he does not go back there every day."

"For, after all, we can escape from everything, but not from ourselves."

"They have never had any children they still think of themselves as being younger than they are, poor deluded creatures, or perhaps they are the only two human beings who see themselves as they really are, which is the most difficult thing of all.."

Favorite quotes

"Most of us are not prepared to overcome
our failures, and because of this
we are not able to fulfill our gifts.
It is easy to stand for something
that does not carry a risk."

"Discovering new worlds will not only
bring you happiness and wisdom,
but also sadness and fear.
How could you value happiness
without knowing what sadness is?
How could you achieve wisdom
without facing your own fears?
In the end, the great challenge in life
is to overcome
the limits within yourself,
pushing them to places you would never
have dreamed they could go."

"Follow your dreams. Listen to your heart.
Whatever others might tell you,
never forget that you only live once
and that your dreams, big or small,
are the greatest treasures that will
guide your life to a unique and wonderful destiny.
Donโ€™t let your fears stand in the way of your dreams."

Because of Winn-Dixie - Kate DiCamillo
Favorite quotes

โ€œThere ainโ€™t no way you can hold on to something that wants to go, you understand? You can only love what you got while you got it.โ€

"I could understand the way Winn-Dixie felt. Getting left behind probably made his heart feel empty."

After You'd Gone - Maggie O'Farrell
Favorite quotes

โ€œโ€˜Love is not changed by death and nothing is lost, and all in the end is harvest.โ€โ€™

What are you supposed to do with all the love you have for somebody if that person is no longer there? What happens to all that leftover love? Do you suppress it? Do you ignore it? Are you supposed to give it to someone else?

I never knew it was possible to think about someone all of the time, for someone to be always doing acrobatic leaps across your thoughts. Everything else was an unwelcome distraction from what I wanted to think about.

The Devil and Miss Prym - Paulo Coelho
Favorite quotes

So you see, Good and Evil have the same face; it all depends on when they cross the path of each individual human being.โ€

The Stranger

โ€œThats an excellent story," He said. "Ahab really understood human nature: it isn't the desire to abide by the law that makes everyone behave as society requires, but the fear of punishment. Each one of us carries a gallows inside us.โ€

the stranger

โ€œOne thing I can tell you with absolute certainty: life can either seem very long or very short, according to how you live it.โ€

Memories of My Melancholy Whores - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Favorite quote

โ€œI had always understood that dying of love was mere poetic license. That afternoon, back at home, without the cat and without her, I proved that it was not only possible but that I myself, an old man without anyone, was dying of love. But I also realized that the contrary was true as well: I would not have traded the delights of my suffering for anything in the world. I had spent more then fifteen years trying to translate the poems of Leopardi, and only on that afternoon did I have a profound sense of them: if this is love, then how it torments.โ€
