Favorite Fernand Quotes

1. "Fernand," cried he, "of my hundred names I need only tell you one, to overwhelm you! But you guess it now do you not? - or, rather, you remember it? For notwithstanding all my sorrows and my tortures, I show you today a face which the happiness of revenge makes young again.."
Author: Alexandre Dumas
2. "Doreen Fernandez' foreword to "Rizal Without the Overcoat":His essays remind us that history need not and should not be relegated to schoolbooks and classrooms, where it often becomes a set of names and dates to memorize and spew out on test papers. History is a living and lively account of what we were and are; it could and should be as real to each of us as stories about family or about recent and past events.. If all of that makes us understand humanity better, so does history make us understand ourselves, and our country infinitely better, in the context of our culture and our society."
Author: Ambeth R. Ocampo
3. "You learn to read so you can identify the reality in which you live, so that you can become a protagonist history rather than a spectator" Father Fernando Cardenal"
Author: Barbara Kingsolver
4. "I grew up half in South Central and half in the San Fernando valley."
Author: Cheech Marin
5. "Winter denial: therein lay the key to California Schadenfreude--the secret joy that the rest of the country feels at the misfortune of California. The country said: "Look at them, with their fitness and their tans, their beaches and their movie stars, their Silicon Valley and silicone breasts, their orange bridge and their palm trees. God, I hate those smug, sunshiny bastards!" Because if you're up to your navel in a snowdrift in Ohio, nothing warms your heart like the sight of California on fire. If you're shoveling silt out of your basement in the Fargo flood zone, nothing brightens your day like watching a Malibu mansion tumbling down a cliff into the sea. And if a tornado just peppered the land around your Oklahoma town with random trailer trash and redneck nuggets, then you can find a quantum of solace in the fact that the earth actually opened up in the San Fernando Valley and swallowed a whole caravan of commuting SUVs."
Author: Christopher Moore
6. "Jacinto começou a mostrar claramente, escancaradamente, ao seu Zé Fernandes, o tédio de que a existência o saturava. O seu cuidado realmente e o seu esforço consistiram então em sondar e formular esse tédio — na esperança de o vencer logo que lhe conhecesse bem a origem e a potência. E o meu pobre Jacinto reproduziu a comédia pouco divertida dum Melancólico que perpetuamente raciocina a sua Melancolia."
Author: Eça De Queirós
7. "Marriage to Fernando offered shelter and security, but the shackle was the price I'd pay."
Author: Esther Williams
8. "3.(…)En la vida de hoy, el mundo sólo pertenece a los estúpidos, a los insensibles y a los agitados. El derecho a vivir y a triunfar se conquista hoy con los mismos procedimientos con que se conquista el internamiento en un manicomio: la incapacidad de pensar, la amoralidad y la hiperexcitación.—Libro del Desasosiego, Fernando Pessoa—"
Author: Fernando Pessoa
9. "Cuáles ideas nunca supe, ¡pero qué maravilla! Y la nostalgia de lo pasado, de lo vivido, de lo soñado me iba suavizando el ceño. Y por sobre las ruinas del Bombay presente, el casco de lo que fue, en una nube desflecada, rompiendo un cielo brumoso, me iba retrocediendo a mi infancia hasta que volvía a ser niño y a salir el sol, y me veía abajo por esa carretera una tarde, corriendo con mis hermanos. Y felices, inconscientes, despilfarrando el chorro de nuestras vidas pasábamos frente a Bombay persiguiendo un globo. Con su aguja gruesa una vitrola en la cantina tocaba un disco rayado:«Un amor que se me fue, otro amor que me olvidó, por el mundo yo voy penando. Amorcito quién te arrullará, pobrecito que perdió su nido, sin hallar abrigo muy sólito va..." Fernando Vallejo en La virgen de los sicarios"
Author: Fernando Vallejo

Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
11. "I am only mortal, desperate, urgent. Spirits have endless ages in which to do nothing, if they so choose, but humans have death to hurry them on. Near or far, the end is always in sight. We have no time to stand and stare. Make your choice, Fernanda."
Author: Jan Siegel
12. "Still holding my breath, I worked the dull point inside and slowly, slowly drew back the stopper, plunged it back in, and exhaled. At last, my grateful spirit eased out of the fetid bag of humanity crumpled in that Japanese car, eased out and drifted overhead, until it floated high over the San Fernando Valley, far away from all these people who just didn't understand, far away and high above the awful circumstance of what now passed for my life."
Author: Jerry Stahl
13. "What will die with me the day I die? What pathetic or frail image will be lost to the world? The voice of Macedonio Fernandez, the image of a bay horse in a vacant lot on the corner of Sarrano and Charcas, a bar of sulfur in the drawer of a mahogany desk?"
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
14. "A: Absorbed in our discussion of immortality, we had let night fall without lighting the lamp, and we couldn't see each other's faces. With an offhandedness or gentleness more convincing than passion would have been, Macedonio Fernandez' voice said once more that the soul is immortal. He assured me that the death of the body is altogether insignificant, and that dying has to be the most unimportant thing that can happen to a man. I was playing with Macedonio's pocketknife, opening and closing it. A nearby accordion was infinitely dispatching La Comparsita, that dismaying trifle that so many people like because it's been misrepresented to them as being old... I suggested to Macedonio that we kill ourselves, so we might have our discussion without all that racket. Z: (mockingly) But I suspect that at the last moment you reconsidered. A: (now deep in mysticism) Quite frankly, I don't remember whether we committed suicide that night or not."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
15. "In this sense, Byzantine culture embodies the French historian Fernand Braudel's notion of the longue durée, the long term: that which survives the vicissitudes of changing governments, newfangled fashions or technological improvements, an ongoing inheritance that can both imprison and inspire."
Author: Judith Herrin
16. "Father Fernando did every thing in his power to assist the sick; and although he arrived much reduced in flesh, he did not become ill, and is now well."
Author: Junipero Serra
17. "My grandmother lives with my mother in a gorgeous house in the San Fernando Valley. I am afforded these luxuries, and I'm very young."
Author: Kirsten Dunst
18. "Sitting in the deserted law offices, Sanders had the feeling that he was all alone in the world, with nobody but Fernandez and the encoraching darkness. Things were happening quickly; this person he had never met before today was fast becoming a kind of lifeline for him."
Author: Michael Crichton
19. "Mag sein, daß für manche die Literatur die angenehmste Art ist, das Leben zu ignorieren, wie Fernando Pessoa einmal geschrieben hat."
Author: Nicolas Barreau
20. "Seriously, Dyt? What are you waiting for? If he could care enough to help you without having you asked him, he seems worthy enough to be chased. ? Ilham Fernando Fauzi"
Author: Nina Ardianti
21. "I make out a schoolbus...glowing orange, green, magenta, lavender, chlorine blue, every fluorescent pastel imaginable in thousands of designs, both large and small, like a cross between Fernand Liger and Dr. Strange, roaring together and vibrating off each other as if somebody had given Hieronymous Bosch fifty buckets of day-glo paint and a 1939 International Harvester schoolbus and told him to go to it."
Author: Tom Wolfe
22. "Mary Joe Fernandez rarely has a bad loss. She never tries for stupid shots."

"Jeanine can be extraordinarily persuasive to those who aren't naturally suspicious. I have always been naturally suspicious." ... "Yeah," I say. "So have I."
