Favorite Faro Quotes

1. "Sidney was intriguing. But she made Anna feel uncomfortable. She had that bright, mocking cynicism that challenged her in some way. Sidney was irritating, almost aggressive; but also there was that curious farouche sort of nervousness about her. And her attractive, one-sided smile that you couldn't quite trust in, and which promised so much; which, perhaps, was the token of a rare inward warmth. There was nothing easy about her. She was sharp, and stinging and stimulating and would need living up to; she would keep you on your mettle."
Author: Anna Kavan

5. "¿Cuándo empezó esto que ahora va a terminar con mi asesinato? Esta feroz lucidez que ahora tengo es como un faro y puedo aprovechar un intensísimo haz hacia vastas regiones de mi memoria: veo caras, ratas en un granero, calles de Buenos Aires o Argel, prostitutas y marineros; muevo el haz y veo cosas más lejanas: una fuente en la estancia, una bochornosa siesta, pájaros y ojos que pincho con un clavo. Tal vez ahí, pero quién sabe: puede ser mucho más atrás, en épocas que ahora no recuerdo, en períodos remotísimos de mi primera infancia. No sé. ¿Qué importa, además?"
Author: Ernesto Sabato
6. "Ahora han pasados unos instantes en que la imaginación, como insecto de la noche, ha salido de la sala para recordar los gustos del verano y ha volado distancias que ni el vértigo ni la noche conocen. Pero la imaginación tampoco sabe quién es la noche, quién elige dentro de ella lugares del paisaje, donde un cavador da vuelta la tierra de la memoria y la siembra de nuevo. Al mismo tiempo alguien hecha a los pies de la imaginación pedazos de pasado y la imaginación elige apresurada con un pequeño farol que mueve, agita y entrevera los pedazos y las sombras. De pronto se le cae el pequeño farol en la tierra de la memoria y todo se apaga. Entonces la imaginación vuelve a ser insecto que vuela olvidando las distancias y se posa en el borde del presente." --El caballo perdido"
Author: Felisberto Hernández
7. "El Merkel de siempre. Es editorialista de un gran periódico, y a menudo escribe artículos de tono apocalíptico, que pretenden ser tomados en serio y en ocasiones lo merecen incluso. Mal afeitado y tembloroso por las mañanas, pero siempre elegante al atardecer, y dotado de un humorismo que se enciende al mismo tiempo que los faroles."
Author: Hjalmar Söderberg
8. "You're well enough looked after now' says Farouq. 'We are your friends. Don't we care about you? All this bitterness, it's in your own mind. To be accepted as a human being, you must behave like one. The more human you act, the more human you'll be.' He spoils the effect of this decent speech by adding with a smirk, 'Four-foot cunt."
Author: Indra Sinha
9. "Incluso si cumpliera noventa, perdiera la razón y olvidara todo lo demás, el recuerdo del príncipe de Invierno seria un faro brillante que nunca desaparecería."
Author: Julie Kagawa
10. "As soon as I saw that doll all splotched with mud, I saw myself, saw how soiled I was. Or thought I was. From that minute on, I felt liked I'd slipped through a hole in God's pocket. Just took a dive right into the dirt and was lost forever."Greg kissed Faron's hair. "You never hit the dirt. You just slid from one pocket to another. That's what I did too - I took a journey I was meant to take. I know that now."Absorbing this, Faron slanted a puzzled look at Greg. "Which pocket do you suppose I landed in?""This one. The one we're in together. The one I believe we'll stay in."Faron felt a thrill of optimism in his heart. "I never thought of it that way.""I never did either. Until today." Greg once again settled onto Faron's chest. His cheek moved noticeable into a smile. "God isn't small, honey. God has a lot of freakin' pockets. And we just found the one we belong in."
Author: K.Z. Snow
11. "Far too soon it had begun to seem too much of a triumph, it had been too good, too horribly unimaginable to lose, impossible finally to bear: it was as if it had become itself its own foreboding that it could not last, a foreboding that was like a presence too, turning his steps towards the taverns again. And how could one begin all over again, as though the Café Chagrin, the Farolito, had never been?"
Author: Malcolm Lowry
12. "A ring-whorled prow rode in the harbour,ice-clad, outbound, a craft for a prince.They stretched their beloved lord in his boat,laid out by the mast, amidships,the great ring-giver. Far fetched treasureswere piled upon him, and precious gear.I have never heard before of a ship so well furbishedwith battle tackle, bladed weaponsand coats of mail. The massed treasurewas loaded on top of him: it would travel faron out into the ocean's sway.They decked his body no less bountifullywith offerings than those first ones didwho cast him away when he was a childand launched him alone over the waves.And they set a gold standard uphigh above his head and let him driftto wind and tide, bewailing himand mourning their loss. No man can tell,no wise man in hall or weathered veteranknows for certain who salvaged that load."
Author: Seamus Heaney
13. "Perché piangi? Perché ti butti per terra? Perché ti manca i fiatto? [...] Perché da qualche parte in me intuisco un'armonia e una luce immense, e da questa luce e da questa armonia mi sto allontando come una nave che prende il largo; cioè che all'inizio era il senso di ogni respiro con il tempo diventa il lampeggiare di un faro lontano."
Author: Susanna Tamaro
14. "Saint took a seat at the main faro table at the Society club. "What the devil is a ladies' political tea?"Tristan Carroway, Viscount Dare, finished placing his wager, then sat back, reaching for his glass ofport. "Do I look like a dictionary?""You're domesticated." Saint motioned for a glass of his own, despite unfriendly looks from the tables'other players. "What is it?""I'm not domesticated; I'm in love. You should try it. Does wonders for your outlook on life.""I'll take your word for it, thank you."
Author: Suzanne Enoch
15. "D'une complexion farouche et bavarde, ayant le désir de ne voir personne et le besoin de parler à quelqu'un, il se tirait d'affaire en se parlant à lui-même. Quiconque a vécu solitaire sait à quel point le monologue est dans la nature. La parole intérieure démange. Haranguer l'espace est un exutoire. Parler tout haut et tout seul, cela fait l'effet d'un dialogue avec le dieu qu'on a en soit."
Author: Victor Hugo
16. "Nunca más me estrellaré contra un farol (pero algunas estrellas proyectadas por la violencia de aquel choque resplandecen aún hermosamente en mi noche)"
Author: Virginia Woolf
17. "La unión de dos almas sincerasno admite impedimentos.No es amor el amorque se transforma con el cambio,o se aleja con la distancia.¡Oh, no! Es un faro siempre firme,que desafía a las tempestades sin estremecerse.Es la estrella para el navio a la deriva,de valor incalculable, aunque se mída su altura.No es amor bufón del tiempo, aunque los rosados labios ymejillas caigan bajo el golpe de su guadaña.El amor no se altera con sus breves horas y semanas,sino que se afianza incluso hasta en el borde del abismo.Sí estoy equivocado y se demuestra,yo nunca nada escribí, y nadie jamás amó."
Author: William Shakespeare

They're pretty extreme, but I loved the two 'Human Centipede' films from Tom Six. Those movies are fun because they're well-made. They're crazy and psychotic and perverted and twisted, but they're really well-made."
