Favorite Arlen Quotes

1. "Avez-vous remarqué que la mort seule réveille nos sentiments? Comme nous aimons les amis qui viennent de nous quitter, n'est-ce pas? Comme nous admirons ceux de nos maîtres qui ne parlent plus, la bouche pleine de terre! L'hommage vient alors tout naturellement, cet hommage que, peut-être, ils avaient attendu de nous toute leur vie. Mais savez-vous pourquoi nous sommes toujours plus justes et plus généreux avec les morts? La raison est simple ! Avec eux, il n'y a pas d'obligation. Ils nous laissent libres, nous pouvons prendre notre temps, caser l'hommage entre le cocktail et une gentille maîtresse, à temps perdu, en somme. S'ils nous obligeaient à quelque chose, ce serait à la mémoire, et nous avons la mémoire courte. Non, c'est le mort frais que nous aimons chez nos amis, le mort douloureux, notre émotion, nous-mêmes enfin!"
Author: Albert Camus

4. "Personally, I want to die in dignity but my passing celebrated jollity. I've told my executors that I want a stand up comedian in the pulpit telling amusing anecdotes, and the coffin to slide into the incinerator to the sound of Marlene Dietrich. If the booze up can begin right away, so much the better, and with a bit of luck the crematorium will never be gloomy again. Anyone mourning should be denounced as the representative of a credit card company and thrown out on their ear. Snowballs if in season (tomatoes if not) can be thrown at anyone uttering even worthy cliches like "the struggle goes on" and should anyone be prepared to dodge pieces of concrete confrontation.If I have miscalculated, as a worthy clerical friend assures me I have, and there really is a God, I'd like to feel if he's got any sense of humor or feeling for humanity there's nobody he would sooner have in heaven than people like me, and if he hasn't, who wants in?"
Author: Albert Meltzer
5. "Pourquoi les poëtes parlent-ils mieux que moi de moi même?

Author: Benoîte Groult

Le pauvre a la cloison mince. Et il jure beaucoup, c'est vrai, mais sans penser à mal, rassure-toi..."
Author: Daniel Pennac

De quoi parlent-ils ? ça c'est une autre question. J'oublie même, parfois, de pénétrer le sens de la conversation, me contentant du tableau seul."
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Un héros lâche, voilà l'nage. Mais un héros courageux, quel mérite y a-t-il ? Il se faisait plaisir. Il se satisfait. Ce sont les hommes, mâle et femelle, dont parlent les prêtres ; qui s'y entendent : ils se satisfont d'eux-mêmes. Y a-t-il jamais dévouement désintéressé ? Et même, ajoutait-il, s'il existe, l'absence totale d'intérêt n'est-elle pas alors le signe de l'orgueil le plus pur"

All creatures--man, woman, beast, insect, bird, and fish--lived happily together with this silence until one day man and woman lay down together and between them created the first word. This displeased God deeply and in anger she shook out her bag of words over the world, sprinkling and showering her creation with them. Her word store rained down upon all creatures, shattering forever the whole that once was silence. God cursed the world with words and forever after it would be a struggle for man and woman to return to the original silence. --Marlene Nourbese Philip"

You celebrate Arlenny's Ph.D defense. And then one June night you scribble the ex's name and: The half-life of love is forever. You bust out a couple more things. Then you put your head down. The next day you look at the new pages. For once you don't want to burn them or give up writing forever. It's a start, you say to the room. That's about it. In the months that follow you bend to the work, because it feels like hope, like grace—and because you know in your lying cheater's heart that sometimes a start is all we ever get."

28. "La guerre est la soumission la plus difficile de la liberté de l'homme aux lois de Dieu. La simplicité est la soumission à Dieu. On n'échappe pas à lui. Et EUX ils ne parlent pas, ils agissent. La parole prononcée est d'argent, celle qui n'est pas prononcée est d'or. L'homme n'a pouvoir sur rien tant qu'il a peur de la mort. Et celui qui n'a pas peur de la mort possède tout. Si la souffrance n'existait pas, l'homme ne se connaîtrait pas de limites, il ne se connaîtrait pas lui-même. (Guerre et Paix, livre troisième, 3ème partie, ch. IX)"

34. "Of course, now I had the problem of communicating what I needed. Marlen was still beating on the door, and Dimitri would be up in a couple of minutes. I glared at the human, hoping I looked terrifying. From his expression, I did. I attempted the caveman talk I had with Inna...only this time the message was a little harder. "Stick," I said in Russian. I had no clue what the word for stake was. I pointed at the silver ring I wore and made a slashing motion. "Stick. Where?" He stared at me in utter confusion and then asked, in perfect English, "Why are you talking like that?" "Oh for God's sake," I exclaimed. "Where is the vault?" "Vault?" "A place they keep weapons?" He continued staring. "Oh," he said. "That." Uneasily, he cast his eyes in the direction of the pounding."

A woman who plunged into the abyss sitting down."

38. "- Dime, ¿de verdad crees que éste es el espectáculo más deslumbrante del mundo?-¿Eh?-No. Ni por asomo. Probablemente ni siquiera es el número cincuenta de la lista de los espectáculos más deslumbrantes del mundo. Tenemos un tercio de la capacidad del circo Ringling. Ya has descubierto que Marlena no pertenece a la realeza rumana. ¿Y Lucinda? De 400 kilos nada, 200 como mucho. ¿Y tú crees que a Frank Otto le tatuaron unos furiosos cazadores de cabezas de Borneo? No fastidies. Antes era un montador del Escuadrón Volador. Se pasó 9 años trabajándose la tinta. ¿Y sabes lo que hizo Tío Al cuando murió el hipopótamo? Cambio el agua por formol y siguió exhibiéndolo. Estuvimos dos semanas viajando con un hipopótamo en conserva. Todo es ilusión, Jacob, y no tienen nada de malo. Es lo que la gente quiere que le demos. Es lo que espera de nosotros."
Author: Sara Gruen

40. "We don't like murders here," said a man's voice, low and threatening, from the back of the crowd. Megan glanced at Cassie and her friends. They looked away, as if they didn't see what was happening. Anger boiled in her chest. Why wouldn't they leave her alone? She hadn't killed anyone. She hadn't killed Harlen Trooper, all those years ago. She knew it and the judge knew it. She hadn't even been charged. If I wanted to, I could have you all killed, she thought, and was stunned when the thought didn't scare her the way it should. She looked at their faces, stony and stubbled, shiny with alcoholic sweat. The power in her chest hadn't worked against Ktana Leyak, but it could against them, this miserable bunch of humans with their heavy boots and beer guts. She pictured those guts exploding. She pictured the terror in their eyes when they realized they were messing with the wrong fucking demon, they were - Demon?"
Author: Stacia Kane

Author: Veronica Roth
44. "Wait a second," Four says. I turn toward him, wondering which version of Four I'll see now-the one who scolds me, or the one who climbs Ferris wheels with me. He smiles a little, but the smile doesn't spread to his eyes, which look less tense and worried."You belong here, you know that?" he says. "You belong with us. It'll be over soon, so just hold on, okay?"He scratches behind his ear and looks away, like he's embarrassed by what he said. I stare at him. I feel my heartbeat everywhere, even in my toes. I feel like doing something bold, but I could just as easily walk away. I am not sure which option is smarter, or better. I am not sure that I care.I reach out and take his hand. His fingers slide between mine. I can't breathe. I stare up at him, and he stares down at me. For a long moment, we stay that way. Then I pull my hand away and run after Uriah and Lynn and Marlene. Maybe now he thinks I'm stupid, or strange. Maybe it was worth it."
Author: Veronica Roth
45. "Lynn, she saved half our faction from this stuff," says Marlene, tapping the bandage on her arm from where the Dauntless traitors shot her. "Well, half of half of our faction.""In some circles they call that a quarter, Mar," Lynn says."

And then the kid drowned in the Mississippi, recalled Kiki now, looking up from her knees to the colourful painting that hung behind Carlene's empty chair. Jerome had wept: the tears you cry for someone whom you never met who made something beautiful that you loved. Seventeen years earlier, when Lennon died, Kiki had dragged Howard to Central Park and wept while the crowd sang 'All You Need is Love' and Howard ranted bitterly about Milgram and mass psychosis."
Author: Zadie Smith
50. "I don't ask myself what did I live for, said Carlene strongly. That is a man's question. I ask whom did I live for."

Today's Quote

We can never dispense with language and the other symbol systems; for it is by means of them, and only by their means, that we have raised ourselves above the brutes, to the level of human beings. But we can easily become the victims as well as the beneficiaries of these systems. We must learn how to handle words effectively; but at the same time we must preserve and, if necessary, intensify our ability to look at the world directly and not through that half opaque medium of concepts, which distorts every given fact into the all too familiar likeness of some generic label or explanatory abstraction."
Author: Aldous Huxley
