Favorite Pasternak Quotes

1. "FebruaryBoris PasternakIt's February. Get ink. Weep.Write the heart out about it, singAnother song of FebruaryWhile raucous slush burns black with spring.Six grivnas* for a buggy ridePast booming bells, on screaming gears,Out to a place where drizzles fallLouder than any ink or tearsWhere like a flock of charcoal pears,A thousand blackbirds, ripped awryFrom trees to puddles, knock dry griefInto the deep end of the eye.A thaw patch blackens underfoot.The wind is gutted with a scream.True verses are the most haphazard,Rhyming the heart out on a theme.*Grivna: a unit of currency."
Author: Boris Pasternak
2. "In allem aber möchte ich zum Wesen dringen.Beim Werk, beim Suchen eines Wegs,In Herzens Ringen.Zum Wesen der Vergangenheit,Es aufzufinden,Bis zu den Wurzeln, bis zum Kern, Bis zu den Gründen.Und will die Schicksalsfäden klugZusammenstecken,Will denken, fühlen, lieben undStets neu entdecken(Boris Pasternak)"
Author: Fabio Volo
3. "Boris Pasternak said that poetry makes itself from the relationship between the sounds and the meanings of words."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
4. "Ever since the days when such formidable mediocrities as Galsworthy, Dreiser, Tagore, Maxim Gorky, Romain Rolland and Thomas Mann were being accepted as geniuses, I have been perplexed and amused by fabricated notions about so-called "great books." That, for instance, Mann's asinine "Death in Venice," or Pasternak's melodramatic, vilely written "Dr. Zhivago," or Faulkner's corn-cobby chronicles can be considered "masterpieces" or at least what journalists term "great books," is to me the sort of absurd delusion as when a hypnotized person makes love to a chair. My greatest masterpieces of twentieth century prose are, in this order: Joyce's "Ulysses"; Kafka's "Transformation"; Bely's "St. Petersburg," and the first half of Proust's fairy tale, "In Search of Lost Time."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
