Favorite Borba Quotes

1. "Ništa nisam toliko želeo uciniti a da se u isto vreme ne bih toga mogao i odreci. Cak i u detinjstvu, kad mi ništa nije nedostajalo, želeo sam umreti: hteo sam se predati, jer mi se borba cinila besmislenom. Shvatao sam da ništa ne mogu dokazati, osmisliti, dodati ili oduzeti produžujuci život koji nisam sam tražio. Sve egzistenicje oko mene bile su promašene ili, ako i nisu bile promašene, bile su smešne. Osobito egzistencije onih ljudi koji su uspeli u životu. Muka me hvatala od ljudi koji su uspeli u životu. Imao sam razumevanja za greške, ali me nije zbog toga hvatala muka. Tu je posredi bila prava pravcata negativna osobina, slabost koja bi nabujala vec pri pogledu na ljudsku bedu. Nikada nisam nikome pomogao u nadi da time cinim dobro; pomogao bih samo zato što drugacije nisam mogao."
Author: Henry Miller
2. "Imagine a man between thirty-eight and forty, tall, slim, and pale. His clothes, except for their style, looked as if they'd escaped from the Babylonian captivity. The hat was a contemporary of one of Gessler's. Imagine now a frock coat broader than the needs of his frame--or, literally, that person's bones. The fringe had disappeared some time ago, of the eight original buttons, three were left. The brown drill trousers had two strong knee patches, while the cuffs had been chewed by the heels of boots that bore no pity or polish. About his neck the ends of a tie of two faded colors floated, gripping a week-old collar. I think he was also wearing a dark silk vest, torn in places and unbuttoned. "I'll bet you don't know me, my good Dr. Cubas," he said. "I can't recall...""I'm Borba, Quincas Borba."
Author: Machado De Assis
3. "Este último capítulo é todo de negativas. Não alcancei a celebridade do emplasto, não fui ministro, não fui califa, não conheci o casamento. Verdade é que, ao lado dessas faltas, coube-me a boa fortuna de não comprar o pão com o suor do meu rosto. Mais; não padeci a morte de D. Plácida, nem a semidemência do Quincas Borba. Somadas umas coisas e outras, qualquer pessoa imaginará que não houve míngua nem sobra, e conseguintemente que saí quite com a vida. E imaginará mal; porque ao chegar a este outro lado do mistério, achei-me com um pequeno saldo, que é a derradeira negativa deste capítulo de negativas: — Não tive filhos, não transmiti a nenhuma criatura o legado da nossa miséria."
Author: Machado De Assis
4. "Rat je surova ali poštena borba, kao medu životinjama. Život u miru je surova borba, ali nepoštena, kao medu ljudima. Razlika je ogromna."
Author: Meša Selimović

Today's Quote

The only proper purpose of a government is to protect man's rights, which means: to protect him from physical violence. The only proper functions of a government are: the police, to protect you from criminals; the army, to protect you from foreign invaders; and the courts, to protect your property and contracts from breach or fraud by others, to settle disputes by rational rules, according to objective law. (John Galt)"
