Author: Alan Gratz
2. "- Wydaje mi sie, ciociu, ze oni chcieliby widziec ten szpital innym, niz naprawde jest. Jakby czlowiek przychodzil do szpitala tylko po to, zeby wyzdrowiec. A przeciez przychodzi sie tutaj takze po to, zeby umrzec.- Masz racje, Oskarze. Mysle zreszta, ze popelnia sie ten sam blad w stosunku do zycia w ogóle. Zapominamy, ze zycie jest kruche, delikatne, ze nie trwa wiecznie. Zachowujemy sie wszyscy, jakbysmy byli niesmiertelni."
Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt
3. "I wept when the muse Ulla bent over me. Blinded by tears I could not prevent her from kissing me, I could not prevent the Muse from giving me that terrible kiss.

To cry properly, without restraint, to cry like mad. The tears flowed and washed everything away. The rain came. The dew. Oskar has a vision of floodgates opening. Of dams bursting in the spring floods. What is the name of that river that overflows every spring and the government does nothing to stop it?"
Author: Günter Grass
6. "Behind all sorrows in the world Klepp saw a ravenous hunger; all human suffering, he believed, could be cured with a portion of blood sausage. What quantities of fresh blood sausage with rings of onion, washed down with beer, Oskar consumed in order to make his friend think his sorrow's name was hunger and not Sister Dorothy."
Author: Günter Grass

Eli pulled on her T-shirt, lifted her hands, let them fall.'I'm never going to hurt you.''I know that.''What are you thinking about?''That T-shirt. Is it from the trash room?''...yes.''Have you washed it?'Eli didn't answer.'You're a little gross, you know that?''I can change, if you like.''Good. Do that."

12. "Cher Marcel,Allô. I am Oskar's mom. I have thought about it a ton, and I have decided that it isn't obvious why Oskar should go to French lessons, so he will no longer be going to go see you on Sundays like he used to. I want to thank you very much for everything you have taught Oskar, particularly the conditional tense, which is weird. Obviously, there's no need to call me when Oskar doesn't come to his lessons, because I already know, because this was my decision. Also, I will keep sending you checks, because you are a nice guy.Votre ami dévouée,Mademoiselle Schell."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
16. "Mozna oskarzyc czlowieka o tchórzostwo, jesli ucieka przed wszelkiego rodzaju fizycznymi zagrozeniami. Ale gdy juz nie tylko jego bezpieczenstwu i dobremu samopoczuciu, ale wrecz jego zdrowiu i jego najtajniejszemu jestestwu zaczynaja zagrazac zjawiska nadprzyrodzone, bezcielesne i niewytlumaczalne, wtedy odwrót jest oznaka nie slabosci, ale tego, ze wybral rozsadna linie postepowania."

18. "Oskar knew people would catch that trolley anyhow. Doors closed, no stops, machine guns on walls—it wouldn't matter. Humans were incurable that way. People would try to get off it, someone's loyal Polish maid with a parcel of sausage. And people would try to get on, some fast-moving athletic young man like Leopold Pfefferberg with a pocketful of diamonds or Occupation zloty or a message in code for the partisans. People responded to any slim chance, even if it was an outside one, its doors locked shut, moving fast between mute walls."
Author: Thomas Keneally
19. "It is not too fantastic to say that he desired them with some of the absolute passion that characterised the exposed and flaming heart of Jesus which hung on Emilie's wall. Since this narrative has tried to avoid the canonisation of the Herr Direktor, the idea of the sensual Oskar as the desirer of souls has to be proved."
Author: Thomas Keneally
20. "If Frau Rasch, in the last and fullest days of her husband's power in Brno, had idly—during a party, say; a musical recital at the castle—gazed into the core of the diamond that had come to her from Oskar Schindler, she would have seen reflected there the worst incubus from her own dreams and her Führer's. An armed Marxist Jew."
