Author: Albert Camus

Author: Amos Oz

Author: Atticus Shaffer
4. "A novel is not an allegory.... It is the sensual experience of another world. If you don't enter that world, hold your breath with the characters and become involved in their destiny, you won't be able to empathize, and empathy is at the heart of the novel. This is how you read a novel: you inhale the experience. So start breathing."
Author: Azar Nafisi

"Wie es scheint, schmilzt die Frühlingssonne den harten Eispanzer des Barbarenhäuptlings, und, o Wunder, darunter kommt ein Philisoph zum Vorschein.""Ich weiß nicht was Vielosoof für eine Beleidigung ist, aber du kannst dir sicher sein, dass der Barbarenhäuptling dir gleich die Axt in den Rachen schiebt!"Ollowain schlang die Arme übereinander und tat, als zittere er.

Author: Bernhard Hennen

Author: C.S. Lewis
9. "Because, as we know, almost anything can be read into any book if you are determined enough. This will be especially impressed on anyone who has written fantastic fiction. He will find reviewers, both favourable and hostile, reading into his stories all manner of allegorical meanings which he never intended. (Some of the allegories thus imposed on my own books have been so ingenious and interesting that I often wish I had thought of them myself.)"
Author: C.S. Lewis

Wordless, imperfect love; love that is constant, love that is simplegoodness, love that forgives not only bad singing and embarrassments, but misunderstandings and harsh words.Love that sits and stays and stays and stays, until it finally becomes its own forever. Love, stronger than death. A dog is a four-legged reminder that love comes and time passes and then your heart breaks."
Author: Deb Caletti

Namun, di detik pertama kita meluncur ke luar, perjudian hidup dimulai. Taruhanmu adalah rasa percaya yang kau lego satu per satu demi sesuatu bernama cinta"

"Porque en los momentos mas tristes hay alguien que llora contigo, sufre porque tu sufres, te entiende perfectamente bien cuando te enojas, comprende que en el fondo de tu enojo hay dolor, y no te deja nunca sola. Porque en los momentos mas felices brinca, baila, sonríe y sueña contigo. Y en los momentos mas difíciles, cuando sientes que el mundo esta en tu contra, sabes que ese alguien va a saltar para defenderte y nadie te hará daño. Ese alguien nunca te va a dejar sola, ese alguien te ama, llego contigo y se ira contigo... Ese alguien eres tu."
Author: Dulce María

Author: Edmundo Valadés
18. "Fiatal vagyok, húszesztendos; de az életbol nem ismerek semmi mást, csak a kétségbeesést, a halált, a félelmet s a legesztelenebb felületességek összekapcsolódását a szenvedés örvényével. Látom, hogy népeket hajszolnak egymás ellen, s a népek hallgatva, tudatlanul, ostobán, engedelmesen, ártatlanul megölik egymást. Látom, hogy a világ legokosabb agyveloi fegyvereket és frázisokat találnak ki, hogy mindezt még rafináltabbá és tartósabbá tehessék. S velem együtt látja ezt minden korombeli ember itt és odaát, az egész világon, velem együtt éli át az én nemzedékem. Mit csinálnak majd az apáink, ha egyszer fölállunk, eléjük lépünk, és számadást követelünk? Mit várnak tolünk, ha majd eljön egy olyan ido, amikor nem lesz háború? Esztendokön át az ölés volt a foglalkozásunk – ez volt az elso hivatásunk az életben. Az életrol való tudásunk a halálra szorítkozik. Mi történhetik még ezután? És mi lehet belolünk?"
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
19. "Now whatever the origin of this apparently meaningless jumble of ideas may have been, it is really a perfect and very slightly allegorical expression of the actual present views we hold today."
Author: Frederick Soddy
20. "Os homens de espírito livre, que vivem só para o conhecimento, em breve acharão ter alcançado a sua definitiva posição relativamente à sociedade e ao Estado e, por exemplo, dar-se-ão de bom grado por satisfeitos com um pequeno emprego ou com uma fortuna que chegue à justa para viver; pois arranjar-se-ão para viver de maneira que uma grande tansformação dos bens materiais, até mesmo um derrube da ordem política, não deite também abaixo a sua vida. Em todas essas coisas eles gastam a menor energia possível, de modo a poderem imergir, com todas as forças reunidas e, por assim dizer, com um grande fôlego, no elemento do conhecimento. Podem, assim, ter esperança de mergulhar profundamente e também de, talvez, verem bem até ao fundo."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
21. "The substance of all such paganism may be summarised thus. It is an attempt to reach the divine reality through the imagination alone; in its own field reason does not restrain it at all. It is vital to the view of all history that reason is something separate from religion even in the most rational of these civilisations. It is only as an afterthought, when such cults are decadent or on the defensive, that a few Neo-Platonists or a few Brahmins are found trying to rationalise them, and even then only by trying to allegorise them. But in reality the rivers of mythology and philosophy run parallel and do not mingle till they meet in the sea of Christendom."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
22. "Kessler depicts his developing intimacy with a handful of dairy goats and offers an enviable glimpse of the pastoral good life. Yet he also cautions, "Wherever the notion of paradise exists, so does the idea that it was lost. Paradise is always in the past." The title Goat Song is a literal rendering of the Greek word traghoudhia, tragedy. Reading it, I was reminded of Leo Marx's analysis of Thoreau's Walden. In The Machine in the Garden, Marx names Thoreau a tragic, if complex pastoralist. After failing to make an agrarian living raising beans for commercial trade (although his intent was always more allegorical than pecuniary), Thoreau ends Walden by replacing the pastoral idea where it originated: in literature. Paradise, Marx concludes, is not ultimately to be found at Walden Pond; it is to be found in the pages of Walden."
Author: Heather Paxson
23. "Each has its lesson; for our dreams in sooth, come they in shape of demons, gods, or elves, are allegories with deep hearts of truth that tell us solemn secrets of ourselves."
Author: Henry Timrod
24. "I don't like allegories."
Author: J. R. R. Tolkien
25. "For the rest, they shall represent the other Free Peoples of the World: Elves, Dwarves, and Men, Legolas shall be for the Elves; and Gimli son of Gloin for the Dwarves. They are willing to go at least to the passes of the Mountains, and maybe beyond. For Men you shall have Aragorn son of Arathorn, for the Ring of Isildur concerns him closely"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
26. "Legolas was standing, gazing northwards into the darkness, thoughtful and silent as a young tree in a windless night."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
27. "Love isn't stackable and interlocking, like boxes or Legos. Love is like a one-legged man standing on a three-legged chair that is placed on top of a two-legged piano. I should know, because I'm the guy trying to tune that piano, fix that chair, and affix a prosthetic leg to that guy—who happens to be my piano teacher. Mr. Balloonky, you get down from there now!"
Author: Jarod Kintz
28. "Alegoria:no es que vaya mal trajeado, ni que lleve un peinado estrafalario o no se lave o le cuelguen cadenas del cuello.similie: ahora si se cubria la desnudez con los brazos como si tuviera vergûenza o friosoliloquio: velando su enfermedad tras haberle quitado alguna ropa.similie: deje de sntir la tensióm de su cuerpo que se apretaba contra mi de espaldas como si empujaraalegoria:ese amigo se llama o se hace llamar Ruib´rttiz de Torres y tiene un aspecto indecoroso.es escritor aplicado y con buen oído de convencional talento y más bien mala suerte."
Author: Javier Marías
29. "A gyerekek rengeteg örömmel járnak, meg minden, ahogy mondani szokták, de nagy szívfájdalommal is, folyton-folyvást, és attól tartok, ez akkor sincs másképp, ha felnonek; de ezt már nem szokták mondani. Látjuk, hogy bizonytalanok valamiben, és ez fáj. Látjuk bennük a jó szándékot, hogy segíteni akarnak, és ki akarják venni a részüket valamibol, de nem tehetik, és ez is fáj. Fáj a derujük, az egyszeru kis tréfáik és az átlátszó hazugságaik, a csalódásaik és az illúzióik, a reményeik és az apró baklövéseik, az ártatlanságuk, az értetlenségük, a tiszta, logikus kérdéseik, sot még az esetleges rossz gondolataik is. Fáj, ha belegondolunk, mennyit kell még tanulniuk, hogy milyen hosszú út áll még elottük, amit senki nem taposhat ki helyettük, még ha évszázadok óta ezt tesszük is, mert értelmetlennek véljük, hogy mindenkinek a nulláról kelljen kezdenie. Ugyan mi értelme mindenkinek ugyanazokon a kellemetlenségeken és felismeréseken átesnie, örökkön-örökké?"
Author: Javier Marías
30. "Writing stories and plays is an extension of little-kid doll house play and lego play. We all are kids, just older now, and we plan a bit more, but writing is play."
Author: Jeanne Voelker
31. "Lego, however, is always opened and then left lying around so adults have something to tread on when they are prowling around around the house at two in the morning, in bare feet, looking for the source of a noise."
Author: Jeremy Clarkson
32. "Peruse all the sermons of Jesus and you will be sure to find parables, and sometimes allegory. What you will always find, however, is something of keeping our hearts in order."
Author: Jerome Strong
33. "Thomas barked out a laugh. "There are seven of us against the Red King and his thirteen most powerful nobles, and it's going well?"Mouse sneezed."Eight," Thomas corrected himself. He rolled his eyes and said, "And the psycho death faerie makes it nine.""It is like movie," Sanya said, nodding. "Dibs on Legolas."
Author: Jim Butcher
34. "Saint Augustine … insisted that scripture taught nothing but charity. Whatever the biblical author may have intended, any passage that seemed to preach hatred and was not conducive to love must be interpreted allegorically and made to speak of charity."
Author: Karen Armstrong
35. "A priest is he who lives solely in the realm of the invisible, for whom all that is visible has only the truth of an allegory."
Author: Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
36. "...underneath their human guises, they looked like the typical faery - that is, no wings, scantily clad and kind of man-pretty like Orlando Bloom's Legolas..."
Author: Kevin Hearne
37. "Io son figlio del Caos; e non allegoricamente, ma in giusta realtà, perché son nato in una nostra campagna, che trovasi presso ad un intricato bosco denominato, in forma dialettale, Càvusu dagli abitanti di Girgenti, corruzione dialettale del genuino e antico vocabolo greco "Kaos"."
Author: Luigi Pirandello
38. "Grandad taught me that the alien signs and symbols of algebraic equations were not just marks on paper. They were not flat. They were three-dimensional, and you could approach them from different directions, look at them from different ways, stand them on their heads. You could take them apart and put them back together in a variety of shapes, like Legos. I stopped being scared of them."
Author: Mal Peet
39. "Angela Carter...refused to join in rejecting or denouncing fairy tales, but instead embraced the whole stigmatized genre, its stock characters and well-known plots, and with wonderful verve and invention, perverse grace and wicked fun, soaked them in a new ?ery liquor that brought them leaping back to life. From her childhood, through her English degree at the University of Bristol where she specialised in Medieval Literature, and her experiences as a young woman on the folk-music circuit in the West Country, Angela Carter was steeped in English and Celtic faerie, in romances of chivalry and the grail, Chaucerian storytelling and Spenserian allegory, and she was to become fairy tale's rescuer, the form's own knight errant, who seized hold of it in its moribund state and plunged it into the fontaine de jouvence itself.(from "Chamber of Secrets: The Sorcery of Angela Carter")"
Author: Marina Warner
40. "There was a multitude of sexual scenarios, from asimple one-on-one couple fucking like bunnies to anoutright orgy with no less than eight people joined likeLEGOs."
Author: Maya Banks
41. "Richard put away the Narnia books, convinced, sadly, that they were an allegory; that an author (whom he had trusted) had been attempting to slip something past him. He had had the same disgust with the Professor Challenger stories, when the bull-necked old professor became a convert to Spiritualistm; it was not that Richard had any problems believing in ghosts - Richard believed, with no problems or contradictions, in everything - but Conan Doyle was preaching, and it showed through the words. Richard was young, and innoncent in his fashion, and believed that authors should be trusted, and that there should be nothing hidden beneath the surface of a story."
Author: Neil Gaiman
42. "Leo had once joked about writing an allegorical sketch where Parody packed its bags, shut up shop and put a sign on the door which read: "Closed. Any inquiries please contact the Real"."
Author: Patrick McGuinness
43. "I wasn't able to think about them directly or summon them up in any conscious way, but as I put together their puzzles and played with their Lego pieces, building evermore complex and baroque structures, I felt that I was temporarily inhabiting them again--carrying on their little phantom lives for them by repeating the gestures they had made when they still had bodies."
Author: Paul Auster
44. "Human beings across every culture I know about require such stories, stories with cool winds and wood smoke. They speak to something deep within us, the capacity to conceptualize, objectify and find patterns, thereby to create the flow of events and perceptions that find perfect expression in fiction. We are built this way, we create stories by reflex, unstoppably. But this elegant system really works best when the elements of the emerging story, whether is is being written or being read, are taken as literal fact. Almost always, to respond to the particulars of the fantastic as if they were metaphorical or allegorical is to drain them of vitality."
Author: Peter Straub
45. "Hrabia de G., typowy bohater Dalego, zwykl mawiac:bale organizuje sie dla tych, których sie nie zaprasza. (...) Jajko na talerzu bez talerza na balu bez Dalego - to Dali."
Author: Salvador Dalí
46. "Quizas te sorprenda que me acuerde con tanto detalle de ese dia, de esas horas (...) A mi tambien me sorprende. Solo recordamos con tanta precision los dias marcados por algun acontecimiento historico del que hemos sido testigos, o por la muerte de algun familiar muy querido. Al hablar de un dia asi damos importancia capital a los detalles mas insignificantes; decimos: era martes, la una y media de la tarde, veintiocho de octubre; o bien: yo me encontraba en un rincon, alrededor de las dos y media llego el medico, unos minutos antes de las tres el enfermo pidio una limonada y, cuando murio, el reloj marcaba exactamente las tres y cuatro minutos. Los detalles no tienen ningun sentido en si, pero continuamos arrastrando su recuerdoa una escala exagerada. No hay otra forma de entender..., asi que nos agarramos a los desechos del mundo real, pues lo ocurrido es tan incomprensible que necesitamos algunos puntos de apoyo para no perder el equilibrio."
Author: Sándor Márai
47. "He turned the entire living room into an airport, complete with a four-foot-high LEGO traffic control tower and a fleet of paper planes, plastic army pilots taped safely into their cockpits. From deep beneath the couch, a large utility flashlight illuminates some sort of...landing strip? I crouch down for a better look.Oh. My. God.Stuck to the carpet in parallel, unbroken paths from one wall to the other are two lanes of brand-new maxi pads. Plastic dinosaurs stand guard at every fourth pad–triceratops and T rexes on one side, brontosauruses and pterodactyls on the other–protecting the airport from enemy aircraft and/or heavy flow."
Author: Sarah Ockler
48. "I love to read, but all through school I hated it when books were pulled apart and analyzed. Winnie-the-pooh as a political allegory, that sort of thing. It never really worked for me. There's a line in The Barretts of Wimpole Street - you know, the play - where Elizabeth Barrett is trying to work out the meaning of one of Robert Browning's poems, and she shows it to him, and he reads it and he tells her that when he wrote that poem, only God and Robert Browning knew what it meant and now only God knows. And that's how I feel about studying English. Who knows what the writer was thinking, and why should it matter? I'd rather just read for enjoyment."'The Winter Sea"
Author: Susanna Kearsley
49. "In order to get over the ethical difficulties presented by the naive naturalism of many parts of those Scriptures, in the divine authority of which he firmly believed, Philo borrowed from the Stoics (who had been in like straits in respect of Greek mythology), that great Excalibur which they had forged with infinite pains and skill—the method of allegorical interpretation. This mighty 'two-handed engine at the door' of the theologian is warranted to make a speedy end of any and every moral or intellectual difficulty, by showing that, taken allegorically or, as it is otherwise said, 'poetically' or, 'in a spiritual sense,' the plainest words mean whatever a pious interpreter desires they should mean."
Author: Thomas Henry Huxley
50. "It's just the problem with those things, and what i've learnt is this: they're meant to be a shortcut to the ultimate... thing, the plane, or whatever you want to say it like, yeah? It's meant to be: here's your thirty quid or whatever, take me to higher consciousness, please. And it don't work that way, bro. You don't get the full benefit. You've got to work your way up that tree, meaning that that is an allegory which is saying: you can't just fly up to the branches. You get me?"
Author: Zadie Smith
