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"

„They were neither good nor evil now — every living thing
was simply creeping or hopping along in the mass panic.“

— 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"

„Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words,
then labor heavily so that they may seem light.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I know I won't be justified as long as I live, since I myself stand in my own way. Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words, then labor heavily so that they may seem light. "Under One Small Star"

„Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves. They publicly confess to being poets only reluctantly, as if they were a little ashamed of it. But in our clamorous times it's much easier to acknowledge your faults, at least if they're attractively packaged, than to recognize your own merits, since these are hidden deeper and you never quite believe in them yourself.

„God of humor, do something about him today.“

— 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"

„I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son,
the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son, the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers, a tiny creature, made up of two pupils and whatever simply could not be left out... "Tarsier"

„As far as you've come can't be undone.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: There's no life that couldn't be immortal if only for a moment.Death always arrives by that very moment too late.In vain it tugs at the knob of the invisible door. As far as you've come can't be undone. "On Death, Without Exaggeration"

„Those who knew
what this was all about
must make way for those
who know little.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Those who knew what this was all about must make way for those who know little. And less than that. And at last nothing less than nothing. "The End and the Beginning"

„I'm sorry that my voice was hard.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I'm sorry that my voice was hard. Look down on yourselves from the stars, I cried, look down on yourselves from the stars. They heard me and lowered their eyes. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"
