Favorite Plenitud Quotes

1. "Good things that we have in life are on temporary loan, at best, and can be taken away from us in an instant. The borderline between good fortune and disaster, between plenitude and paucity, between the warm hearth of love and the cold chamber of loneliness, was a narrow one. We could cross over from one to the other at any moment, as when we stumbled or fell, or simply walked over to the other side because we were paying insufficient attention to where we were."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
2. "Google is so strange. It promises everything, but everything isn't there. You type in the words for what you need, and what you need becomes superfluous in an instant, shadowed instantaneously by the things you really need, and none of them answerable by Google....Sure, there's a certain charm to being able to look up and watch Eartha Kitt singing Old Fashioned Millionaire in 1957 at three in the morning or Hayley Mills singing a song about femininity from an old Disney film. But the charm is a kind of deception about a whole new way of feeling lonely, a semblance of plenitude but really a new level of Dante's inferno, a zombie-filled cemetery of spurious clues, beauty, pathos, pain, the faces of puppies, women and men from all over the world tied up and wanked over in site after site, a great sea of hidden shallows. More and more, the pressing human dilemma: how to walk a clean path between obscenities."
Author: Ali Smith
3. "Retrato de Mulher Triste Vestiu-se para um baile que não há.Sentou-se com suas últimas jóias.E olha para o lado, imóvel.Está vendo os salões que se acabaram,embala-se em valsas que não dançou,levemente sorri para um homem.O homem que não existiu.Se alguém lhe disser que sonha,levantará com desdém o arco das sobrancelhas,Pois jamais se viveu com tanta plenitude.Mas para falar de sua vidatem de abaixar as quase infantis pestanas,e esperar que se apaguem duas infinitas lágrimas."
Author: Cecília Meireles
4. "I will not seek it," the other replied. "It has been opened once and it is enough. And you -- are you sure that man can conquer until he has been wholly defeated? Are you sure that he can find plenitude till he has known utter despair? You will not let him despair of himself, but it may be that only in such a complete despair he finds that which cannot despair and is something other than man."
Author: Charles Williams
5. "As vezes aquele que está fugindo da natureza da vida-morte-vida insiste empensar que o amor é apenas uma dádiva. No entanto, o amor em sua plenitude é uma série de mortes e de renascimentos. Deixamos uma fase, um aspecto do amor, eentramos em outra. A paixão morre e volta. A dor é espantada para longe e vem à tona mais adiante. Amar significa abraçar e ao mesmo tempo suportar inúmeros finais e inúmeros recomeços — todos no mesmo relacionamento."
Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estés
6. "El pesar nos envejece prematuramente, cuando estas en deuda emocional eres pesimista con respecto al futuro, y aun en tus años de plenitud, ansias volver al pasado para remediar las carencias de amor y oportunidad que sufriste. a veces ansias mas atención, pasar mas tiempo con alguien que ya no esta, tener la oportunidad de hablar francamente y desprenderte de tu carga emocional, o solo resolver tu confusión descubriendo, por fin, lo que realmente ocurrió"
Author: Deepak Chopra
7. "Sólo el individuo que vive en soledad es una criatura sujeta a leyes profundas y si sale al empezar la mañana, o mira hacia la tarde que está vibrante de vida y comprende lo que le rodea, entonces todo se desprende de él, como si de un cadáver se tratara, aunque siga en la plenitud de la vida."
Author: Douglas Coupland
8. "My language is a feel-thinking language, feeling and thinking at once, that is why it is a celebration of life, and at once it is a denunciation of everything that is not allowed in life to be real life, it's plenitude."
Author: Eduardo Galeano
9. "With the spread of conformity and image-driven superficiality, the allure of an individuated woman in full possession of herself and her powers will prove irresistible. We were born for plenitude and inner fulfillment."
Author: Elizabeth Prioleau
10. "Ever since I was fifteen, that is to say from that moment when I lost all that was left me of my childhood, from the moment when I ceased to be aware of the present and knew only the past hurrying into the future, that is to say into the abyss, ever since I became fully conscious of time I have felt old and I have wanted to live. I have run after life as though to catch time, and I have tried to live. I have run after life so much that it has always escaped me, I have run, I have never been late and never too early, and yet I have never caught up with it: it is as though I have run alongside of it.What is life, I may be asked. For me, life is not Time; it is not this state of existence, for ever escaping us, slipping between our fingers and vanishing like a ghost as soon as you try to grasp it. For me it is, it must be, the present, presentness, plenitude. I have run after life so much that I have lost it."
Author: Eugène Ionesco
11. "In the history of humanity there are no civilizations or cultures which fail to manifest, in one or a thousand ways, this need for an absolute that is called heaven, freedom, a miracle, a lost paradise to be regained, peace, the going beyond History... There is no religion in which everyday life is not considered a prison; there is no philosophy or ideology that does not think that we live in alienation.... Humanity has always had a nostalgia for the freedom that is only beauty, that is only real; life, plenitude, light."
Author: Eugène Ionesco
12. "It is a sunny fall afternoon and I'm engaged in one of my favorite pastimes—picking chestnuts. I'm playing alone under the spreading, leafy, protective tree. My mother is sitting on a bench nearby, rocking the buggy in which my sister is asleep. The city, beyond the lacy wall of trees, is humming with gentle noises. The sun has just passed its highest point and is warming me with intense, oblique rays. I pick up a reddish brown chestnut, and suddenly, through its warm skin, I feel the beat as if of a heart. But the beat is also in everything around me, and everything pulsates and shimmers as if it were coursing with the blood of life. Stooping under the tree, I'm holding life in my hand, and I am in the center of a harmonious, vibrating transparency. For that moment, I know everything there is to know. I have stumbled into the very center of plenitude, and I hold myself still with fulfillment, before the knowledge of my knowledge escapes me."
Author: Eva Hoffman
13. "Es perfectamente imaginable que el esplendor de la vida está dispuesto, siempre en toda plenitud, alrededor de cada uno, pero cubierto de un velo, en las profundidades, invisible muy lejos. Sin embargo está ahí, no hostil, no a disgusto, no sordo, viene si uno lo llama con la palabra correcta, por su nombre correcto, Es la esencia de la magia, que no crea, sino llama."
Author: Franz Kafka
14. "Well-meaning, helpful, good-natured attitudes of mind have not come to be honored on account of their usefulness, but because they are states of richer souls that are capable of bestowing and have their value in the feeling of the plenitude of life."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
15. "Los asesinos respetan la vida humana, sino que desean alcanzar una plenitud de vida propia, a expensas de las vidas que consideran inferiores a la suya. Pero el filósofo odia la vida, ya en sí mismo o en sus semejantes."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
16. "Reverie is not a mind vacuum. It is rather the gift of an hour which knows the plenitude of the soul."
Author: Gaston Bachelard
17. "The change in the girl's face was more subtle, almost invisible; it was not joy, there was no sparkle, but something like a serene contentment. It was as though she had ripened, as though there were a growing plenitude in her, never there before."
Author: Georges Simenon
18. "Porque labios libertinos o venales le habían murmurado frases semejantes, no creía sino débilmente en el candor de las mismas; había que rebajar, pensaba él, los discursos exagerados que ocultan afectos mediocres; como si la plenitud del alma no se desbordara a veces por las metáforas más vacías, puesto que nadie puede jamás dar la exacta medida de sus necesidades, ni de sus conceptos, ni de sus dolores, y la palabra humana es como un caldero cascado en el que tocamos melodías para hacer bailar a los osos, cuando quisiéramos conmover a las estrellas."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
19. "Estaba en la plenitud de la vida y todo giraba en torno a la muerte."
Author: Haruki Murakami
20. "El presente y el pasado de mi familia se partieron ahí, con la devastadora muerte de Marta, y el futuro ya no volvería a ser el mismo para ninguno de nosotros. Digamos que ya no fue posible para nadie volver a ser plenamente feliz, ni siquiera por momentos, porque en el mismo instante en el que nos mirábamos en un rato de felicidad, sabíamos que alguien faltaba, que no estábamos completos, y que entonces no teníamos derecho a estar alegres, porque ya no podía existir la plenitud."
Author: Héctor Abad Faciolince
21. "La gente cree que el vacío es la nada, pero no lo es. El vacío es una plenitud discordante, un mundo atestado de fantasmas en que el alma se hace un reconocimiento."
Author: Henry Miller
22. "Al final, lo único que tenemos a plenitud es la memoria que hemos tejido."
Author: Isabel Allende
23. "THE HOLE The hole is something which longs to be filled. The small child is drawn as if by magic to holes. He can not restrain himself from putting in his finger or his whole arm. He makes a symbolic sacrifice of his body to cause the void to disappear and a plenitude of being to exist. The fundamental tendency of human beings to stop up holes persists throughout life, symbolically and in reality. And only from this standpoint can we understand why the feminine sex is obscene. It is obscene because it is a hole and because it sends out an appeal for a plenitude of flesh. A woman also senses her condition as such an appeal, such an enticement. Thus every hole becomes something obscene because it "is an obscene expectation."
Author: Jean Paul Sartre
24. "Depression was a successful adaptation to ceaseless pain and hardship [...] feeling bad all the time and expecting the worst had been natural ways of equilibrating themselves with the lousiness of their circumstances. Few things gratified depressives, after all, more than really bad news [...] Grim situations were Katz's niche the way murky water was a carp's [...] he might well have started making music again, had it not been for the accident of success. He flopped around on the ground, heavily carplike, his psychic gills straining futilely to extract dark sustenance from an atmosphere of approval and plenitude."
Author: Jonathan Franzen
25. "Spectacles, on that strong-featured face…and his hair mussed as if he had been tugging absently on the front locks. All that combined with a plenitude of muscles and masculine virility was astonishingly…erotic. "When did you start wearing those?" Daisy managed to ask. "About a year ago." He smiled ruefully and removed the spectacles with one hand. "I need them to read. Too many late nights poring over contracts and reports." "They…they are very becoming." "Are they?" Continuing to smile, Swift shook his head, as if it had not occurred to him to wonder about his appearance."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
26. "Espiritualidade é a busca pela plenitude do relacionamento com Deus."
Author: Luis Alexandre Ribeiro Branco
27. "Be warned, then: the collected volumes of this series will contain frozen mountains, foetid swamps, hostile foreigners, hostile fellow countrymen, the occasional hostile family member, bad decisions, misadventures in orienteering, diseases of an unromantic sort, and a plenitude of mud."
Author: Marie Brennan
28. "Después de la alegría viene la soledadDespués de la plenitud viene la soledadDespués del amor viene la soledad.Ya sé que es una pobre deformaciónPero lo cierto es que en ese durable minutoUno se siente solo en el mundo."
Author: Mario Benedetti
29. "A living symbol that can call into my moment of sadness a deeper sense of plenitude and generosity that is always there, but not always accessible."
Author: Mark Nepo
30. "La felicidad de la existencia es esa plenitud de todos los instantes acompañada de un amor por todos los seres, y no ese amor individualista que la sociedad actual no inculca permanentemente. La verdadera felicidad procede de una bondad esencial que desea de todo corazón que cada persona encuentre sentido a su existencia. Es un amor siempre disponible, sin ostentación ni cálculo. La sencillez inmutable de un corazón bueno."
Author: Matthieu Ricard

Author: Maurice Blanchot

34. "În afara actului sexual, sunt putine clipe în viata când trupul exulta de simpla bucurie de a trai, când se umple de bucurie prin simplul fapt al prezentei sale în lume. Ziua de întâi ianuarie a fost plina de asemenea clipe. Pastrez doar amintirea acelei plenitudini, nimic altceva. Probabil c-am înotat, ne-am încalzit la soare si-am facut dragoste. Nu cred sa fi vorbit ori sa ne fi plimbat pe insula. Îmi amintesc mirosul pe care-l avea Valérie, gustul sarii ce i se usca pe sex. Îmi amintesc c-am adormit în ea, si c-am fost trezit de contractiile vaginului ei."
Author: Michel Houellebecq

Author: Pedro Suárez Vértiz

Thou art the plenitude of the Holy Spirit. Thou sittest at the right hand of God the Father on the throne, reigning for ever."

Only a flickerOver the strained time-ridden facesDistracted from distraction by distractionFilled with fancies and empty of meaningTumid apathy with no concentrationMen and bits of paper, whirled by the cold windWind in and out of unwholesome lungsTime before and time after."

"El objetivo de su vida, desde su adolescencia, es el placer con las mujeres, que da y recibe, no con indulgente ligereza sino con el orgulloso poder de un gallo de buen plumaje en un corral de gallinas. De esta satisfecha plenitud derivan todos los cardes secundarios de su vida: amistad con los hombres, humor rudo y directo, amor a la buena mesa y a la buena bebida, al juego, a su coche, a su radio, a todo cuanto posee y lleva por ello la impronta orgulloso del sembrador. Valora las mujeres al primer vistazo, las clasifica sexualmente y les dedica la sonrisa justa."
Author: Tennessee Williams
45. "He gazes through sunlight's buttresses, back down the refectory at the others, wallowing in their plenitude of bananas, thick palatals of their hunger lost somewhere in the stretch of morning between them and himself. A hundred miles of it, so suddenly. Solitude, even among the meshes of this war, can when it wishes so take him by the blind gut and touch, as now, possessively. Pirate's again some other side of a window, watching strangers eat breakfast."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
46. "Your attitude is a multitude of aptitude and rectitude which decides your altitude in plenitude."
Author: Vikrant Parsai
