Favorite Iner Quotes

1. "When a traveler from the future must talk, he does not talk but whimpers. He whispers tortured sounds. He is agonized. For if he makes the slightest alteration in anything, he may destroy the future. At the same time, he is forced to witness events without being part of them, without changing them. He envies the people who live in their own time, who can act at will, oblivious of the future, ignorant of the effects of their actions. But he cannot act. He is an inert gas, a ghost, a sheet without soul. He has lost his personhood. He is an exile of time."
Author: Alan Lightman

4. "I love to eat and I don't believe in denying myself, so I have to work out. I'm not obsessed with it, I don't have a trainer or do any of the fancy classes, but I usually put on my iPod and run on the treadmill for an hour a few days a week."
Author: Amber Rose
5. "As it happens, the first souvenir I bought was a dried llama fetus. Revolting as it may sound, my poor stillborn llama is actually rather cute. Frozen in the fetal position and dried stiff like beef jerky, it has the gentle, smiling face of a camel and plenty of soft, if slightly formaldehyde-scented, fur. I bought the llama fetus partly because it horrified me, but also for educational purposes, so that my eight-year-old daughter Sophia could show it to her class. (She refused.)Bolivians buy llama fetuses to ward off evil in its many guises. Bolivian miners—who, with a life expectancy of forty-five years, basically live their entire adult lives dying—look to llama fetuses for protection against dynamite explosions and the lung-destroying silicon particulates they inhale all day. Downing high-proof alcohol also helps. "The purer the alcohol, the purer the minerals I find," one miner told me wryly."
Author: Amy Chua
6. "As for the military advantage of such a bombardment, I simply cannot grasp it. I have seen housewives disemboweled, children mutilated; I have seen the old itinerant market crone sponge from her treasure the brains with which they were spattered. I have seen a janitor's wife come out of her cellar and douse the sullied pavement with a bucket of water, and I am still unable to understand what part these humble slaughterhouse accidents play in warfare."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
7. "- ¿Dinero?- Sí. Así se ganan la vida- La vida... Pero ¿es que la vida hay que ganarla? Yo tengo una vida, y no la he ganado en ningún sitio. La tengo desde pequeñita"

9. "Als junges Mädchen hatte ich meine eigene Theorie, was die Liebe betraf. Alles hing davon ab, ob ich bereit war, einem Menschen zu verzeihen, was er in seiner Phantasie mit mir anstellte. Auch die schmutzigsten Phantasien. Wenn nicht, blieb es bei einer normalen Freundschaft, egal, wie gut wir uns verstanden."
Author: Banana Yoshimoto
10. "Hast du manchmal Angst?", fragt er. "Ich meine nicht Angst vor einer Prüfung. Oder dem Erzieher. Sondern so richtig Angst. So Angst vor dem Leben. Weißt du?" Troy schluckt. Er beugt sich nach vorn."Leben ist Angst haben", sage ich. Mir wird unangenehm. Eigentlich habe ich noch nie darüber nachgedacht. Aber ich glaube, es stimmt."
Author: Benjamin Lebert

13. "They had to evacuate the grade school on Tuesday. Kids were getting headaches and eye irritations, tasting metal in their mouths. A teacher rolled on the floor and spoke foreign languages. No one knew what was wrong. Investigators said it could be the ventilating system, the paint or varnish, the foam insulation, the electrical insulation, the cafeteria food, the rays emitted by microcomputers, the asbestos fireproofing, the adhesive on shipping containers, the fumes from the chlorinated pool, or perhaps something deeper, finer-grained, more closely woven into the basic state of things."
Author: Don DeLillo

17. "Immer wenn ich mich von einem Ort, der mir gefällt, verabschieden muss, habe ich das Gefühl, etwas von mir zurückzulassen. Wahrscheinlich besteht das Leben ganz unabhängig davon, ob man ein Vielreisender wie Marco Polo ist oder niemals in die Ferne zieht, aus einer Abfolge von Geburten und Toden. Ein Moment entsteht, ein Moment vergeht. Damit neue Erfahrungen an den Tag kommen können, müssen alte verblühen."
Author: Elif Shafak

At. St. Cloud's, criticism was plainer—and harder, if not impossible, to conceal."
Author: John Irving
24. "Es ist eines der Geheimnisse der Muetter: sie verzichten niemals, ihre Kinder wiederzusehn, ihre totgeglaubten nicht und auch nicht ihre wirklich toten; und wenn es moeglich waehre dass ein totes Kind wiederauferstuende vor seiner Mutter, wuerde sie es in ihre Arme nehmen, so selbstverstaendlich, als waere es nicht aus dem Jenseits sondern aus einem der fernen Gegenden des Diesseits heimgekehrt. Eine Mutter erwarted die Wiederkehr ihres Kindes immer: ganz gleichgueltig, ob es in ein fernes Land gewandert ist, in ein nahes oder den Tod."
Author: Joseph Roth
25. "The intelligent poor individual was a much finer observer than the intelligent rich one. The poor individual looks around him at every step, listens suspiciously to every word he hears from the people he meets; thus, every step he takes presents a problem, a task, for his thoughts and feelings. He is alert and sensitive, he is experienced, his soul has been burned..."
Author: Knut Hamsun

29. "Anders als die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika haben sich die meisten europäischen Nationalstaaten auf der Grundlage von Homogenisierungen entwickelt; historisch liegt ihnen das Ideal einer Einheit von Blut, Kultur, Sprache und Religion zugrunde. Dieser Drang zur Vereinheitlichung war kaum irgendwo stärker als in Deutschland, eben weil es sich erst spät zu einer Nation herausgebildet hat, und das Deutsche niemals ein so natürlicher oder unumstrittener Bezugspunkt war wie England für die Engländer oder Frankreich für die Franzosen."
Author: Navid Kermani
30. "Vi sitter på varden og lar blikket seile. Fra jøkelens islys i øst til Lofotvæggens hilderland i vest under havranden. Det ryker av dypet og det driver av himlen, mens storm og tåke knuses mot hjørner og gjél. Og syn og sus flyter sammen til en saga om mineralets evige suverænitet."
Author: Peter Wessel Zapffe

36. "My point is, however, that churches do promote beliefs that would more appropriately find a place in a context of intellectual debate. They wind up cheerleading for highly dubious opinions on historical, scientific, and metaphysical matters, simply on the bases of emotional preference and the inertia of tradition. They demand conformity to these beliefs, and if you cannot swim with the current, then, well partner, maybe you'd be happier in another pool, another lake in fact, the one ablaze with burning sulfur."
Author: Robert M. Price
37. "Buffett's uncommon urge to chronicle made him a unique character in American life, not only a great capitalist but the Great Explainer of American capitalism. He taught a generation how to think about business, and he showed that securities were not just tokens like the Monopoly flatiron, and that investing need not be a game of chance. It was also a logical, commonsensical enterprise, like the tangible businesses beneath. He stripped Wall Street of its mystery and rejoined it to Main Street -- a mythical or disappearing place, perhaps, but one that is comprehensible to the ordinary American."
Author: Roger Lowenstein
38. "Thomas was like a drug, so smooth and overwhelming that he took one up a level in their emotions just by watching him and listening to him.

Author: Sara Niles

Author: Scott F. Gandert
41. "Goethe died in 1832. As you know, Goethe was very active in science. In fact, he did some very good scientific work in plant morphology and mineralogy. But he was quite bitter at the way in which many scientists refused to grant him a hearing because he was a poet and therefore, they felt, he couldn't be serious."
Author: Stephen Jay Gould
42. "I don't mean that creative people are somehow finer, or more sensitive, and thus have finer, more sensitive nervous breakdowns - you can save that horseshit for the Sylvia Plath worshipers. It's just that creative people have creative breakdowns."
Author: Stephen King
43. "My physics teacher, Thomas Miner was particularly gifted. To this day, I remember how he introduced the subject of physics. He told us we were going to learn how to deal with very simple questions such as how a body falls due to the acceleration of gravity."
Author: Steven Chu
44. "I tried to break her before. Now, I just wanted her as she was. I wanted every last beautiful flaw. I wanted the witty one-liners and the coldness that only I knew how to warm. I wanted the fight and the friction and the make-up sex. I wanted her to wake up in my bed every morning. I wanted her shitty cooking and her beautiful, complex mind."
Author: Tarryn Fisher

Author: Tessa Bailey
46. "Ich dachte, daß ich ihn vor der Hochzeit noch und also nachdem ich ihn nur ein einziges Mal gesehen hatte, Gambetti beschrieben und geschildert habe. Als einen dicken, noch nicht vierzigjährigen Mann, der, weil er tagtäglich fetter wird, immer zu enge Kleidung trägt und durch die angegessene Fettleibigkeit Atembeschwerden hat, selbst wenn er spricht und daß sein Sprechen ein durch diese Fettleibigkeit erzwungenes Sprechen nur in ganz kurzen Sätzen ist, das sich längere Sätze nicht erlauben kann. Der Mann atmet geräuschvoll, habe ich zu Gambetti gesagt, und bleibt auch alle Augenblicke, wenn man mit ihm geht, stehen, dann zeigt er mit der ausgestreckten Hand auf irgendeinen Gegenstand und wenn keiner zum Herzeigen da ist, ganz einfach in irgendeine Richtung als interessante Landschaft, um von seiner Kurzatmigkeit abzulenken."
Author: Thomas Bernhard
47. "What I think the political correctness debate is really about is the power to be able to define. The definers want the power to name. And the defined are now taking that power away from them."
Author: Toni Morrison
48. "Bütün bu yüzyillar boyunca kadinlar, erkegi oldugundan iki kat büyük gösteren bir ayna görevi gördüler, büyülü bir aynaydi bu ve müthis bir yansitma gücü vardi. Böyle bir güç olmasaydi dünya hâlâ bataklik ve balta girmemis ormanlardan ibaret olurdu. Savaslarda zafer kazanildigi duyulmazdi... Çar ve Kayzer ne taç giyerler, ne de tahttan inerlerdi. Uygar toplumlarda hangi ise yararlarsa yarasinlar, bütün siddet ya da kahramanlik eylemlerinde aynalar gereklidir. Iste bu yüzden Napoléon da Mussolini de kadinlarin erkeklerden asagi oldugunda bu kadar israrcidirlar, eger onlar asagida olmasalardi kendileri büyüyemezlerdi."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "As a biblical inerrantist, I believe that what the Bible teaches is true and bow to the text, including its teaching about the Flood and its universality."
Author: William A. Dembski
50. "Sitting in this small pub with its cool flagged floor, listening to the murmuring voices of the haymakers and the click of dominoes falling, drinking beer here in the midle of summer in England in 1914, he suddenly felt a stillness creep up on him as if he were suffering from a form of mental palsy -- as if time had stopped and the world's turning, also. It was a strange sensation -- that he would be for ever stuck in this late June day in 1914 like a fly in amber -- the past as irrelevant to him as the future. A perfect statis; the most alluring inertia."
Author: William Boyd
