Citações Wisława Szymborska

„I remember it so clearly —
how people, seeing me, would break off in midword.
Laughter died.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I remember it so clearly — how people, seeing me, would break off in midword. Laughter died. Lovers' hands unclasped. Children ran to their mothers. I didn't even know their short-lived names. And that song about a little green leaf — no one ever finished it near me. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"

„The window has a wonderful view of a lake,
but the view doesn't view itself.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: The window has a wonderful view of a lake, but the view doesn't view itself. It exists in this world colorless, shapeless, soundless, odorless, and painless. "View with a Grain of Sand"

„My apologies to great questions for small answers.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: My apologies to the felled tree for the table's four legs. My apologies to great questions for small answers. "Under One Small Star"

„I felt age within me. Distance.
The futility of wandering. Torpor.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I felt age within me. Distance. The futility of wandering. Torpor. I looked back setting my bundle down. I looked back not knowing where to set my foot. Serpents appeared on my path, spiders, field mice, baby vultures. They were neither good nor evil now — every living thing was simply creeping or hopping along in the mass panic. "Lot's Wife"

„This object took three billion years to emerge.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: This adult male. This person on earth. Ten billion nerve cells. Ten pints of blood pumped by ten ounces of heart. This object took three billion years to emerge. "A Film from the Sixties"

„And how can we talk of order overall
when the very placement of the stars
leaves us doubting just what shines for whom?“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: And how can we talk of order overall when the very placement of the stars leaves us doubting just what shines for whom?Not to speak of the fog's reprehensible drifting! And dust blowing all over the steppes as if they hadn't been partitioned! And the voices coasting on obliging airwaves, that conspiratorial squeaking, those indecipherable mutters! Only what is human can truly be foreign. "Psalm"

„Few of them made it to thirty.
Old age was the privilege of rocks and trees.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Few of them made it to thirty. Old age was the privilege of rocks and trees. Childhood ended as fast as wolf cubs grow. One had to hurry, to get on with life before the sun went down, before the first snow. "Our Ancestors' Short Lives"

„Inspiration is not the exclusive privilege of poets or artists.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Inspiration is not the exclusive privilege of poets or artists. There is, there has been, there will always be a certain group of people whom inspiration visits. It's made up of all those who've consciously chosen their calling and do their job with love and imagination. It may include doctors, teachers, gardeners — I could list a hundred more professions. Their work becomes one continuous adventure as long as they manage to keep discovering new challenges in it. Difficulties and setbacks never quell their curiosity. A swarm of new questions emerges from every problem that they solve. Whatever inspiration is, it's born from a continuous "I don't know."

„Within him, there's awful darkness, in the darkness a small boy.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Within him, there's awful darkness, in the darkness a small boy. God of humor, do something about him, OK? God of humor, do something about him today. "A Film from the Sixties"
