1. "El gran deseo de un corazón inquieto es el de poseer interminablemente al ser que ama o hundir a este ser, cuando llega el momento de la ausencia, en un sueño sin orillas que sólo pueda terminar el día del encuentro."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "Me irritan muchísimo quienes nos preguntan, con mirada fingidamente horrorizada: "¿No me estará usted juzgando?". Pues sí, claro que lo juzgo, lo juzgo continuamente. (...) Concedo mi estima, o la retiro, dosifico mi amabilidad, dejo en suspenso mi amistad a la espera de pruebas complementarias, me distancio, me acerco, me aparto, concedo un aplazamiento, hago borrón y cuenta nueva, o finjo que lo hago. La mayoría de los interesados ni se dan cuenta. No comunico las sentencias, no doy lecciones, la observación del mundo no tiene en mí más consecuencia que un diálogo interior, un diálogo interminable conmigo mismo"."
Author: Amin Maalouf
3. "Je ne juge pas? Si, je juge, je passe mon temps à juger. Ils m'irritent profondément ceux qui vous demandent, les yeux faussement horrifiés : "Ne seriez-vous pas en train de me juger?" Si, bien sûr, je vous juge, je n'arrête pas de vous juger. Tout être doté d'une conscience à l'obligation de juger. Mais les sentences que je prononce n'affectent pas l'existence des "prévenus". J'accorde mon estime ou je la retire, je dose mon affabilité, je suspends mon amitié en attendant un complément de preuves, je m'éloigne, je me rapproche, je me détourne, j'accorde un sursis, je passe l'éponge -ou je fais semblant. La plupart des intéressés ne s'en rendent même pas compte. Je ne communique pas mes jugements, je ne suis pas un donneur de leçons, l'observation du monde ne suscite chez moi qu-un dialogue intérieur, un interminable dialogue avec moi-même."
Author: Amin Maalouf

Author: Charles Stross

Author: Colson Whitehead
9. ". . . [Nietzsche] had the good manners to despise Christianity, in large part, for what it actually was--above all, for its devotion to an ethics of compassion--rather than allow himself the soothing, self-righteous fantasy that Christianity's history had been nothing but an interminable pageant of violence, tyranny, and sexual neurosis. He may have hated many Christians for their hypocrisy, but he hated Christianity itself principally on account of its enfeebling solicitude for the weak, the outcast, the infirm, and the diseased; and, because he was conscious of the historical contingency of all cultural values, he never deluded himself that humanity could do away with Christian faith while simply retaining Christian morality in some diluted form, such as liberal social conscience or innate human sympathy."
Author: David Bentley Hart
10. "O craving heart, for the lost flowers/ And sunshine of my summer hours!/ The undying voice of that dead time,/ With its interminable chime,/ Rings in the spirit of a spell, / Upon thy emptiness--a knell. / I have not always been as now:"
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
11. "El viaje se hacía interminable: mar y cielo, cielo y mar, hoy como ayer y mañana como hoy, siempre, eternamente."
Author: Edmundo De Amicis
12. "El ayer pudo ser glorioso, ciertamente, pero mañana puedo verme convertida en un almacén de fuegos artificiales. Incluso en la Ciudad Eterna, nos dice el silencioso mausoleo, uno ha de estar siempre dispuesto a sufrir alteraciones convulsas, desenfrenadas e interminables."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
13. "El pasado, decía Proust, no sólo es fugaz, es que no se mueve de sitio. Con París pasa lo mismo, jamás ha salido de viaje. Y encima es interminable, no se acaba nunca."
Author: Enrique Vila Matas
14. "Even when the east excited me most, even when I was keenly aware of its superiority to the broad, sprawling, swollen towns beyond the Ohio, with their interminable inquisitions which only spared children and the very old-even then it had always for me a quality of distortion."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
15. "The endless procession of people and things that forms the world is for me an interminable gallery of pictures whose content bores me. It doesn't interest me because the soul is a monotonous thing and is always the same in everyone; it differs only in its personal manifestations and the best part of it is that which overflows into dreams, into mannerisms and gestures, and thus becomes part of the image that so captures my interest [...] This is how I experience the animate exteriors of things and beings, in pure vision, indifferent as a god from another world to their content, to their spirit. I only go deep into the surface of other people, if I want profundity I look for it in myself and in my concept of things."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
16. "Hell goes round and round. In shape it is circular, and by nature it is interminable, repetitive, and nearly unbearable."
Author: Flann O'Brien

Author: Frank O'Hara
18. "« Alors je prends mon stylo pour dire que je l'aime, qu'elle a les plus longs cheveux du monde et que ma vie s'y noie, et si tu trouves ça ridicule pauvre de toi, ses yeux sont pour moi, elle est moi, je suis elle, et quand elle crie je crie aussi et tout ce que je ferai jamais sera pour elle, toujours, toujours je lui donnerai tout et jusqu'à ma mort il n'y aura pas un mation où je me lèverai pour autre chose que pour elle et lui donner envie de m'aimer et m'embrasser encore et encore ses poignets, ses épaules, ses seins et alors je me suis rendu compte que quand on est amoureux on écrit des phrases qui n'ont pas de fin, on n'a plus le temps de mettre des points, il faut continuer à écrire, écrire, courir plus loin que son coeur, et la phrase ne veut pas s'arrêter, l'amour n'a pas de ponctuation, et de larmes de passion dégoulinent, quand on aime on finit toujours par écrire des choses interminables, quand on aime on finit toujours par se prendre pour Albert Cohen. »"
Author: Frédéric Beigbeder
19. "Did he understand, as those interminable minutes ticked by, that being alone is not the same as being lonely? That being alone is a neutral state; it is like a blind fish at the bottom of the ocean without eyes, and therefore without judgement. Is it possible? That which is around me does not affect my mood; my mood affects that which is around me. Is it true? Could Denny have possibly appreciated the subjective nature of loneliness, which is something that exists only in the mind, not in the world, and, like a virus, is unable to survive without a willing host?"
Author: Garth Stein
20. "It was always dear to me, this solitary hill,and this hedgerow here, that closes out my view,from so much of the ultimate horizon.But sitting here, and watching here, in thought,I create interminable spaces,greater than human silences, and deepestquiet, where the heart barely fails to terrify.When I hear the wind, blowing among these leaves,I go on to compare that infinite silencewith this voice, and I remember the eternaland the dead seasons, and the living present,and its sound, so that in this immensitymy thoughts are drowned, and shipwreck seems sweetto me in this sea."
Author: Giacomo Leopardi
21. "La salvación de la moral y de la sociedad no se obtienen con vanos y costosos procesos contra los culpables, sino con interminables procesos contra los inocentes"
Author: Giovanni Papini
22. "...waking at very early dawn amid all that sweat and stink, he had found himself comparing this ghastly journey with his own life, which had first moved over smiling level ground, then clambered up rocky mountains, slid over threatening passes, to emerge eventually into a landscape of interminable undulations, all of the same color, all bare as despair. These early morning fantasies were the very worst that could happen to a man of middle age; and although the Prince knew that they would vanish with the day's activities, he suffered acutely all the same, as he was used enough to them by now to realize that deep inside him they left a sediment of grief which, accumulating day by day, would in the end be the real cause of his death."
Author: Giuseppe Di Lampedusa
23. "Por otra parte, el diablo no aparecía siempre como una figura repulsiva, sino como un reflejo de la propia conciencia. La culpa nacía de lo que había dejado de hacerse –la vida no vivida– y no de lo que se había hecho. Así, más que por la imagen misma, la angustia era provocada por el vacío en que había caído la existencia como en un pozo interminable […] Dante decía que no hay mayor dolor que en los tiempos de infelicidad recordar los tiempos felices, Quizá no es menor el dolor de imaginar la dicha que nos negó nuestro temor a vivir."
Author: Ignacio Solares
24. "Durante un interminable momento él las observó inmóvil hasta comprenderlo todo, amor, y verla atada con las correas sobre la parrilla eléctrica, y entonces pudieron abrazarse y llorar, hambrientos de pactos y de confidencias, de palabras prohibidas, de promesas de mañana, compartiendo, por fin, el más recóndito secreto"
Author: Isabel Allende
25. "Where do I come from?We are the children of the Great Explosion of Love that begot the whole Universe. We bear a common lineage that unites us in its interminable matrix, that is manifested in all of the different and infinite dimensions, allowing us to participate in this unending co-creation with an attitude of loving co-responsibility. Who am I?I am a being of light (Love), with innumerable dimensional manifestations of shadings of Love and Life. The transitory experience within matter, time and space (human being) resides in those manifestations. This allows me the use of my free will in a co-responsible way in the co-creative process of life."
Author: Ivan Figueroa Otero
26. "...Sunday evenings are heavier than clouds with rain, darker too and often interminable..."
Author: John Geddes
27. "Time interval is a strange and contradictory matter in the mind. It would be reasonable to suppose that a routine time or an eventless time would seem interminable. It should be so, but it is not. It is the dull eventless times that have no duration whatever. A time splashed with interest, wounded with tragedy, crevassed with joy - that's the time that seems long in the memory. And this is right when you think about it. Eventlessness has no posts to drape duration on. From nothing to nothing is no time at all."
Author: John Steinbeck
28. "He clung to the story as to a vow whose abandonment might bring down on his head all kinds of grief and misfortune. He felt very alone, on an interminable day full of evil omens, and the story, though resistant to some of his intentions, was at least a testimony to reality and coherence"
Author: José María Merino
29. "The NELLIE, a cruising yawl, swung to her anchor without a flutter of the sails, and was at rest. The flood had made, the wind was nearly calm, and being bound down the river, the only thing for it was to come to and wait for the turn of the tide. The sea-reach of the Thames stretched before us like the beginning of an interminable waterway. In the offing the sea and the sky were welded together without a joint, and in the luminous space the tanned sails of the barges drifting up with the tide seemed to stand still in red clusters of canvas sharply peaked, with gleams of varnished sprits. A haze rested on the low shores that ran out to sea in vanishing flatness. The air was dark above Gravesend, and farther back still seemed condensed into a mournful gloom, brooding motionless over the biggest, and the greatest, town on earth."
Author: Joseph Conrad
30. "We had visceral, rich memories of dull, interminable hours. Then a day would pass in perfect harmony with our projects, our family members, and our coworkers, and we couldn't believe we were getting paid for this."
Author: Joshua Ferris
31. "Científicamente considerado, el matrimonio es un molino prehistórico en el que dos piedras ruejas se muelen a sí mismas, interminablemente, hasta la muerte"
Author: Juan José Arreola
32. "The future holds no hope or meaning to me. I know that by killing myself other people will suffer, but why go through this interminable hell? What's the point of being here if you feel unloved and abandoned by those you used to trust and count on? What's the point of living if you don't belong anywhere?"
Author: Julie Anne Peters
33. "Nada era difícil una vez decidido, un tren nocturno, un primer barco, otro barco viejo y sucio, la escala en Rynos, la negociación interminable con el capitán de la falúa, la noche en el puente, pegado a las estrellas, el sabor de anís y del carnero, el amanecer entre las islas."
Author: Julio Cortázar
34. "Demasiado tarde, siempre, porque aunque hiciéramos tantas veces el amor la felicidad tenía que ser otra cosa, algo quizá más triste que esta paz y este placer, un aire como de unicornio o isla, una caída interminable en la inmovilidad"
Author: Julio Cortázar
35. " devolverla a la tranquilidad hubiera sido tan simple como escribirlo con las palabras alineándose en un cuaderno como segundos congelados, pequeños dibujos del tiempo para ayudar el paso interminable de la tarde, si solamente fuera eso..."
Author: Julio Cortázar
36. "I foresaw my life unfolding as an interminable stretch of nothingness and so I spent my years on Tinos floundering, feeling like a stand-in for myself, a proxy, as though my real self resided elsewhere, waiting to unite someday with this dimmer, more hollow self. I felt marooned. An exile in my own home"
Author: Khaled Hosseini
37. "En la película, la pobre Keira Knightley tiene que pasar por toda esa maldita tragedia con James McAvoy, pero si Keira no hubiera sido atractiva, el nunca se habría fijado en ella y no le habría roto el corazón. Al fin y al cabo todos sabemos eso de que "es mejor haber amado y perdido...", todo ese rollo es una mierda.Esta teoría se aplica a un montón de películas. Piensa en ello. Si Kate winslet hubiese sido la "Duff", Leonardo DiCaprio no se habría enamorado de ella en Titanic y nosotros nos habríamos ahorrado un montón de lágrimas. Si Nicole Kidman hubiese sido fea en ColdMountain, no tendría que haberse preocupado por Jude Law cuando se fue a la guerra. La lista es interminable."
Author: Kody Keplinger
38. "You'll call for me. You'll be lonely in your new quarters and will feel out of sorts. I could let you pet my hair until you fell asleep."He drew in closer and lowered his voice to ask in all seriousness, "You're mad, aren't you?""As—a—hatter," she whispered back conspiratorially.He felt a hint of sympathy for the creature. "How long have you been in here?""For four long...interminable...days."He glowered at her."Which is why I want you to take me with you. I don't eat much."The dungeon erupted with laughter again.(Myst and Nikolai)"
Author: Kresley Cole
39. "The answer to old age is to keep one's mind busy and to go on with one's life as if it were interminable. I always admired Chekhov for building a new house when he was dying of tuberculosis."
Author: Leon Edel
40. "Actually, the full bell curve goes: brilliant; pretty good; mediocre; mediocre and interminable; dire; vile; dire and vile; and dire, vile, and interminable."
Author: Lois McMaster Bujold
41. "(...) el acto del amor físico es un instante de absoluta intimidad en el que el mundo que nos rodea se convierte en un desierto interminable en medio del cual se aprietan uno contra otro dos cuerpos solitarios"
Author: Milan Kundera
42. "The life changing seems always bracketed by the mundane. The quotidian wrapped around the profound, like plain brown paper concealing the emotional version of an improvised explosive device. Then, in a single interminable moment, when we discover the bomb, absolutely everything changes. But when we recall it from our now forever-changed lives, when we start with the plain brown wrapping, it looks like every other package, every other morning, every other walk."
Author: Nadia Bolz Weber
43. "Liam was too Scottish-''Oh but so Scottish, Bel! Come on, the bagpipes? The interminable quotations from Braveheart? Anyone who's proud of coming from Scotland obviously has issues-"
Author: Paul Murray
44. "As I became a creature of the empty tunnels, survival became easier and more difficult all at once. I gained in the physical skills and experience necessary to live on. I could defeat almost anything that wandered into my chosen domain. It did not take me long, however, to discover one nemesis that I could neither defeat nor flee. It followed me wherever I went - indeed, the farther I ran, the more it closed in around me. My enemy was solitude, the interminable, incessant silence of hushed corridors."
Author: R.A. Salvatore
45. "?Es algo que mi padre solía decir cuando yo era un niño. Hacia el infinito, significa que ves algo sin final. Nick no lo entendió. ?El infinito es interminable. ?Eso es correcto, lo que significa que seguirás adelante y adelante sin importar lo que ocurra o los obstáculos que encuentres. Por encima, por debajo, alrededor o a través. Siempre hay un camino. Y si tienes que perseguir algo hasta el infinito, ponte tus pantalones de chico mayor, calzate tus botas y en marcha."
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
46. "Prayers For Rain' begins like practically every Cure song, with an introduction that's longer than most Bo Diddley singles. Never mind the omnipresent chill, why does Robert Smith write such interminable intros? I can put on 'Prayers For Rain,' then cook an omelette in the time it takes him to start singing. He seems to have a rule that the creepier the song, the longer the wait before it actually starts. I'm not sure if Smith spends the intro time applying eye-liner or manually reducing his serotonin level, but one must endure a lot of doom-filled guitar patterns, cathedral-reverb drums and modal string synth wanderings during the opening of 'Prayers for Rain."
Author: Tom Reynolds
47. "He loved the interminable winter nights, when the dissatisfied wind mewed through the keyhole, and gusts of acrid smoke were driven down through the chimney; the imperfect silence when you awoke, as of a conversation hastily lulled, objects being hastily replaced. ‘Blow, blow thou winter wind, thou art not so unkind as man's ingratitude.' Why was it that he felt so perfectly attuned to winter, to its fatalistic expectation of the worst, then, when the worst came, its rustic heroisms and shouldering of burdens, improvised ingeniousness, constructive despair?"
Author: Violet Trefusis
48. "She belonged to a different age, but being so entire, so complete, would always stand up on the horizon, stone-white, eminent, like a lighthouse marking some past stage on this adventurous, long, long voyage, this interminable --- this interminable life."
Author: Virginia Woolf
49. "His spirit was warped by bitter vindictiveness and puerile self-commiseration, and he spent his days in scorn of the labour that brought him bread and in pitiful devotion to the labour that brought him only disappointment, writing interminable scores which demanded of the orchestra everything under heaven except melody."
Author: Willa Cather
50. "But it was not what I wanted to do! I wanted to star in a silent movie and vamp the sheik, take a trip to the South Seas … walk naked in the sand and surf … write a novel about it. Be the Empress of the Galaxy, be discovered by a hero that would ravish me, and take me away on high adventure! Take a interminable motor home trip across the US and find out how the past had become the present. Journey to Europe, speak flawless French, and become the courtesan in the country chalet where all the real people came to party." She laughed again. "Mostly I did not want be confined to routine … endless routine."
Author: William C. Samples
